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.
