Motorola has a new bone-conduction headset. The Bluetooth Endeavor HX1 catches jaw vibrations that allows the user an option to speak in a normal voice even if there is ambient noise around you. Based on the same technology used by the military, the headset can be used in normal mic mode. The HX1 can go about 7 hours per charge and can be paired with multiple devices and gets spoken status updates. Look for it to appear next month.

Remember Motorola‘s 5-megapixel ZN5 cameraphone? It seems that T-Mobile REALLY wants you to have one: they just announced that beginning on Black Friday and going through Sunday they’ll be offering a $100 mail-in rebate on the $99 phone (with a two-year contract). Free is an amazing price considering you’re getting a 5-megapixel autofocus quad-band phone which includes a xenon flash and WiFi capability. We’re pretty sure these guys will fly off the shelves – at least for one weekend.

Motorola‘s 5-megapixel ZN5 cameraphone arrived online and in select corporate T-Mobile stores this morning. Unlike most camera phone’s, the quad-band ZN5 takes high resolution photos using Kodak Imaging Technology – including autofocus, low-light optimization, and a real Xenon flash. Once you’ve snapped a picture, it can be instantly sent via MMS, WiFi or Bluetooth – or you can store it on 350MB of internal memory which is expandable up to 4GB via microSD.
With a price as low as $99 with a 2-year contract, we think this will be a popular new choice; however, the phone lacks support for T-Mobile’s new 3G network, opting instead for EDGE, which will certainly make some think twice before signing up.

Not many people have the luxury of spending $2000 on a mobile phone. The MOTOAURA is a new luxury phone from Motorola which incorporates an 240x320-pixel display enclosed behind an A-grade 62-carat Sapphire lens, giving it expense and a scratch-proof cover. The enclosure is almost all metal except at the bottom where there is a small piece of plastic for the internal antenna. The back of the MOTOAURA has a watch-like quality in that it allows you to see the workings of its switchblade-style opening mechanism. The rest of the MOTOAURA is your normal cell phone, incorporating a keypad and screen. Mobile-Review has plenty of pictures, a full review and a video showing how scratch-resistive the screen is. It’s hard to see people spend this kind of money on such a simple device, but if you need that premium device that is out of reach for most of the population, then the MOTOAURA is just what you have been looking for.
What do you do when Danica Patrick wins her first IndyCar race? If you are Motorola, you grab a huge pic of her with your insignia on her jumpsuit and offer free wallpaper. Then you build a site called MotoDanica and feature a whole slew of kewl products with her name on them. They include a Bluetooth Automotive System for switching from music to phone, a Bluetooth Headset, and MOTOKR Headphones. We think this surely beats being on a box of Wheaties.
