The Motorola Krave is intended to be the North American variant of Motorola’s MING lineup of Linux-based smart devices sold primarily in Asia with a few key differences.
The device will not feature Linux as its OS but will leverage its CDMA operating system with additions such as a virtual QWERTY keyboard, HTML browser, full access to VCAST services (Music, Video, Mobile TV) GPS support through VZ Navigator, media player, Bluetooth with stereo audio support, 3.5mm headphone jack, Visual Voicemail access, 2.0 megapixel camera with video recorder and zoom, voice control, speakerphone, as well as being only the third device to support FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) updates.
The device will also leverage the flipcover as an interactive display to control the most common functions and will act as a display in its own right depending on functions chosen.
Pricing for the device is set at $349.99 Retail/Month to Month, $269.99 on a 1 year agreement and $199.99 on a 2 year agreement before an additional $50 mail-in rebate for each, bringing the totals to $219.99 and $149.99 respectively.
