Despite low sales expectations
from some analysts, T-Mobile
reportedly has unveiled
new products and promotions for the holiday season that are designed to help the customers stay connected with each other.
The Motorola (News
) Motozine ZN5, pictured below right, captures and shares photos quickly and efficiently, according to the company. The ZN5 features a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, Xenon flash and built-in Kodak (News
) imaging and so-called “Perfect Touch” technologies.
According to Wendy Piñero-DePencier, vice president of brand marketing at T-Mobile (News
) USA, the company recognizes that the holidays are about family and special friends, and are a time for making memories.
“Our mission is to deliver products and services that help enrich relationships, and while we understand that not all loved ones can spend the holidays together, our new holiday offerings will help bring people closer regardless of distance,” Piñero-DePencier said.
T-Mobile also has released “cameo,” which comes with its own dedicated T-Mobile phone number. The device enables users to send photos to the photo frame via MMS or e-mail. The equipment also accepts photos directly from camera phones, so there’s no need to upload the photos to a computer or memory stick.
T-Mobile says many of its products can be the perfect gift items in the holiday season. T-Mobile G1
, featuring the Android-based mobile platform, is one such product, according to T-Mobile. Featuring a QWERTY keyboard and trackball, it integrates Google (News

) Pearl Flip 8220, the first flip BlackBerry. Users use it to text, e-mail, instant message or take advantagte of other voice calling features. Another product, the Samsung Behold sports an ultra-thin design, a large touch-screen display, a full-QWERTY on-screen keypad with vibrating feedback, a 5-megapixel camera and a video recorder. The Samsung Behold will be available beginning Nov. 10.
