Looks Ferrari is endorsing a lot of products, from perfumes to Acer laptops nowadays. For those who can afford, the Limited Edition Ferrari Motorola Z8 is definitely a must-have for gadget lovers with big pockets. The mobile phone is expected to be available around Q1 2008 and includes an array of videos, custom wallpapers and ringtones of the F1 Team. No word on the price yet but hopefully it costs less than the steering wheel of a Ferrari 599.
Interestingly, the Motorola Z8 slider uses the new Symbian 9.2 UIQ 3.1 version of the operating system, while the rest of us will be just pleased to know it is considerably faster, stable and user friendly than previous incarnations seen on other Smartphones. Applications include the Opera browser and email, a PDF viewer, an organiser, a 2MP camera with video and 90MB of onboard memory. Just wished it sported at least 3.2 MP on the camera lens but I am sure Ferrari lovers will still buy it to support the Team.
