O2 offers Motorola Motorizr Z8 for free

'Banana phone' latest addition to O2 contract phones

O2 has added the Motorola Motorizr Z8 to its range of contract phones and, if you're willing to shell out £35 a month on a contract, you can get it free.

The Motorola Motorizr Z8 - dubbed the 'banana phone' - has a two-way kick-slider mechanism that fits the phone around your face. It has 3G with HSDPA for high-speed data downloads and web browsing, and is a sophisticated smartphone powered by the Symbian UIQ operating system.

The Motorola Motorizr Z8 delivers an impressive multimedia performance - video record and playback is great, and its MP3 player is top notch. It can take MicroSD cards with up to 4GB capacity, too.

A 2-megapixel camera ticks the right boxes for imaging. And, as a bonus, the Motorola Motorizr Z8 is being packaged with Motorola's round-the-neck Motorokr S9 Bluetooth Stereo Headset , worth £80.
