Motorola's Z6 keeps losing features. No, seriously, hear us out: it all started out as the Z6tv
, a decent slider with support for Verizon's MediaFLO-based VCAST TV. Fair enough, a solid consumer phone. Then Moto had to check the TV tuner at the door in exchange for GSM support to make the Z6c
. That's all well and good, and we suppose you could argue that the Z6c didn't lose
features -- it just traded them -- but here's a new one for you. The Z6cx unceremoniously ditches the 2 megapixel shooter in an effort to appease the very market the Z6c was designed to appeal to: world travelers who are probably spending at least part of their time in offices where cameras are frowned upon. Looks like the Z6cx can be had for the same $179.99 after contract on rebates as its more photo-friendly sibling, so don't expect any discounts there.
