RAZR Replacement Sneaks Out Of Chicago

Engadget today managed to snap some pictures of the phone that will reportedly replace the RAZR. Code-named Canary, the phone is taller and narrower than the RAZR but just as thin. Like its predecessor it will feature quad-band GSM but upgrades to EDGE data. It also features Bluetooth, a 2 Megapixel camera and a Micro SD card slot under the battery cover. There has not been any word when Motorola will officially announce this phone nor what it will be called.

Ah, I can't wait
It's quite nice in your hand...
It's a bit longer, but the reduction in width makes it fit in the hand better. The style is pretty sweet, with the more stylish keypad. The screen, though smaller, looks more lifelike and brilliant than the original RAZRs.
