Preview: Moto RAZR2 Series
Each RAZR2 runs different software, but you've seen all of it before. The V8 runs the new Linux Java OS, which we just ran through its paces in the ROKR Z6 review. The V9 runs Motorola's classic "Synergy" OS in a format almost identical to the RAZR V3xx. The V9m will run whatever existing OS each CDMA carrier has used on previous Motos.
None of these interfaces are new, and they have been compared hundreds of times (many of those times by us). What is new is how the external screen has been integrated into each of these experiences. For the first time, every RAZR has a QVGA screen on the outside of the flip, with a touch-sensitive area at the bottom of the screen. By placing the touch sensitive area over the screen instead of on buttons, Motorola can now re-label the external keys depending on the task at hand.
