Preview: Moto RAZR2 Series
The RAZR2 is still just a RAZR. Yes, it has a slightly sexier body and a new external display with fancy touch sensitive areas, but little else has changed.
Unfortunately, the touch sensitive screen is under-used, even on the V9m. For the most part it is little more than slightly fancier music controls and the V9m simply adds on a launcher.
Even though they don't use the touch keys, features from the V8 and V9 are the most interesting aspect of these new RAZRs. The way the V8 can deal with texts right from the external display and the way the V9 lets you navigate your music should have been put into every model. And then, if Motorola wanted to get really fancy, they should have been designed to take advantage of the touch screen.

It will be interesting to see whether any of these features make one RAZR2 more popular than another, or if they are enough to make the new RAZR2 popular at all.
