Motorola DROID RAZR: what we’ll see tomorrow

Earlier today we were given a few more clues as to what we'll be seeing at the big Motorola news conference tomorrow in New York City - a device by the name of DROID RAZR now seems rather likely, a new crowned king of Verizon LTE devices, soon to be in our hands. But what have we gathered as far as specifications go? How big is the display, what's going on with the camera, and what sort of processor is inside? And most importantly, will the full package equal a device that's going to entice those who also have had the choice of picking up a dual-core smartphone from Motorola since early this year with the original Atrix, the USA's first dual-core smartphone?

Motorola DROID RAZR teased again, now with more hump! [Video]

We're less than a day away from a Motorola event taking place in New York City that'll be the place where the newest handset from the manufacturer will be revealed. What we know at the moment is limited, but given the brand new teaser site released today, we're getting a pretty clear idea of what it COULD mean to see this next generation "Faster. Thinner. Smarter. Stronger" device. The first clue is a square image that shows off two bits of information - one, that the back or side of the device will be rounded ever so slightly - two, that the back of the device will have a rather nice hump on it - is it on the top or is it on the bottom?

iPhone 3G beats RAZR in sales & BlackBerry in failure rates

More champagne corks likely popping in Cupertino this week, as Apple's iPhone 3G is again heaped with praise.  After the news last Thursday that J.D. Power's smartphone survey had tipped the iPhone 3G as most satisfying handset among business users, now comes word that the other business mainstay, the BlackBerry, is in fact less reliable than Apple's upstart.  That said, and with the continuing success of the handset, it comes as little surprise that the iPhone 3G has now overtaken the Motorola RAZR as the device most purchased by adult customers in Q3 2008.

Motorola Z9 for sale now

Oh, you’ve never heard of it either? Well that might be why its only for sale on Ebay, and furthermore, why it’s the only one.

The gentleman selling the phone says that it won’t be out for a couple of months, and then says other than a few scratches around the screen and the fact the backlight for the keys don’t work, it’s flawless. The guy also says that it’s really just a Razr2 but in a slider form factor.

Now, the guy is clearly looking for a $500+ sell price as the buy it now price is $600 and he says he will include the data cable if the bidding reaches $500 or more. The gent also says that, at least until it’s released to the public, you’ll be the only one on your block with one of these.

Motorola RIZR Z6c nets FCC approval

The next addition to the RAZR-like devices is well on its way gaining the approval of the FCC. The Moto RIZR Z6c is headed to the VZW or Verizon Wireless.

This is another one of those devices getting the “World Edition” badging due to its dual-band CDMA/EV-DO and Dual-Band GSM (900/1800MHZ) which means you can use it in most of Eurasia as well. Imagine the Motorola SLVR, but in slider form with the RAZR style keypad underneath, and that’s pretty much the RIZR in a nutshell.

Razr2 Review: Razr now betr than evr

Motorola’s Razr2 was released earlier this fall without much of a bang. But it’s still one of the slickest flip phones on the market. I’ll be taking a look at the T-mobile version of the phone, and touching on its finer points.


Do you like the Razr line of products (Razr, Razr2, KRZR, etc.)? well, first I am sorry in your poor taste in phones, but second, I am happy to inform you there will be another addition to that line come December, the RIZR Z10.

What’s the difference between this one and its predecessors? Other than the fact it’s a slider, this one might actually be worth the attached price tag of 400 Euro.

MOTORAZR2 V8 on T-Mobile now

T-Mobile today released their version of Motorola’s latest jack, the MOTORAZR2 V8. if you want to know the big difference between this model and the ones that everyone else got, it’s a slight bit of software customization and then the lack of any storage expansion slot, but in trade, it does come with 2GB of storage built in.

After the release of the iPhone, in fact after just about any phone released since a few months ago, releasing the RAZR2 with it’s only impressive feature being a high res external screen with a touch-sensitive portion at the bottom, that’s just unacceptable. Especially at a price point of $249 after a 2 year contract, that’s just crazy.

So some of you I am sure saw our own Chris Davies’ review of the Sprint RAZR2 V9m. Well, Motorola has released another model already, the V8, the key difference being that it’s Linux powered.

Specs wise there is a WMP11 codec, a USB 2.0 interface, a touchscreen customized for music, 512MB of integrated storage and up to 2GB of (microSD?) user storage.

The external display is the same 2” QVGA screen, the internal one is 2.2” same resolution as the external one.
