Just in case you needed another reason to be mugged, AT&T and Motorola today launched the Motorola Razr V3xx in gold, for those of you who wanted an updated version of the Dolce & Gabana Razr. Sporting the same goodies as the original dull gray version, it features a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music and video player, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, the built-in Opera browser, and support for a screaming-fast 3.6Mbps HSDPA network. After rebates and a service agreement, it'll only cost you $20 more than the gray version, at $99.99.
I have to tip my hat to T-Mobile lately. The carrier has been off to a good start this year by introducing a couple of high-quality phones that haven't received any carrier love so far. First it started offering the excellent Nokia 5300, and it looks set to introduce the satisfying Motorola Rizr Z3 on March 12. Though we've grown tired of the thin phone mania, the Rizr is quite the conversation piece. Not only does it successfully pull off the slider design, it's also much prettier than both the Motorola Razr and Krzr. The feature set … Read more
We had a feeling we'd see these smart phones debut today (though not quite with such an awkward naming scheme, but whatever), but now it's official. Along with a slew of other new phones, Motorola announced the GSM version of the Motorola Q and a more multimedia-rich Moto Q q9 (see what we mean?).
The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; GPRS/EDGE) Moto Q will run the latest Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition and features the same soft-touch finish and black casing found on Verizon's version of the sleek QWERTY device. The rest of the features … Read more
After a relatively low-key CES, Motorola pulled no punches in Barcelona and announced a new series of phones at the annual 3GSM show. Besides the GSM Q, which is big news by itself, Moto also unveiled more updated models to its powerhouse thin-phone lineup.
The Rizr Z8 incorporates the original Rizr's sexy design but adds its own unique "kick slide" form factor that cradles the head much like a flip phone does. Inside is quad-band world phone support, HSDPA compatibility, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, an impressive 90MB of integrated memory, and a memory card slot.
The Slvr … Read more
Until GPS phones become commonplace, it will still be necessary to carry two devices if you want both capabilities. So Motorola apparently figures it will try to cash in on this inconvenience while it can, offering its T815 navigation device to work with your smartphone. Gizmodo says it puts maps on your phone and spits out directions, though it appears to be designed more for the car than for your pocket. We're going to hold out for a combo phone--with our luck, one of our kids would grab this thinking it was one of their hockey pucks.
We knew it was coming, we just didn't know when. But as of today Cingular Wireless customers finally can get their hands on one of Motorola's sexiest thin phone, the Krzr K1. Though the CDMA Krzr K1m has been out with Sprint, Verizon Wireless, Alltel, and U.S. Cellular for several months, GSM fans have had to wait on the sidelines for a phone that clearly outshines the popular Razr when it comes to design.
The Krzr K1 comes in an attractive blue skin and offers a 2-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, a digital music player, and a memory … Read more
And here you thought the Apple/Motorola marriage was no more. If you're frothing at the mouth for Apple's iPhone and can't wait until June to get your fix, there is a way (for the moment at least) to get a taste of what's to come. Macsupport is linking to a download for Motorola Razrs that installs a skin of the iPhone menu interface for the phone's display. Granted, it won't magically turn your Razr into an iPhone but if you want that Apple taste for a few months, it may just do the … Read more
We get it. Luxury cars are branching out into more affordable gadgets with their brand names attached to them.
Now add a Ferrari phone to that long list.
The Motorazr Maxx V6 Ferrari Challenge Mobile Phone is available at the Ferrari store online for $524. The multi-ban GSM phone with GPRS and EDGE … Read more
Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and there may be a few red cell phones out there for you to give your loved one on that special day (or that commercialized, overhyped holiday, depending on your point of view).
Cingular/AT&T launched the Samsung Sync in red earlier this month, and we've heard that Verizon will launch not one but two red phones soon. According to the My:Tech News Blog, a red Motorola Krzr K1m (dubbed the Krzr Fire) and a red LG Chocolate (dubbed the Strawberry Chocolate) have appeared on Verizon's "testman" Web site, … Read more
