RAZR Replacement Sneaks Out Of Chicago

Article Comments  54  

Jun 14, 2006, 6:10 PM   by (staff)

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.

EDGE??

By the time this is out I'll be looking for something faster than EDGE. Mad
Yeah no kidding. I see that it's EDGE. I was surprised when the old Razrd was GPRS only. Now the next razr is GSM/EDGE?
I'd like to see at WCDMA/GSM, personally, a requirement for my next phone (so I'll be waiting a little while.)

I guess Moto ...

not one, but TWO new pieces of $h!t...

that's right people...motorola has done it again. except this time around, they're comming out with TWO new pieces of sh!t for the uneducated/based on looks alone public, and will soon be releasing the Canary, and the razr-slider the Capri. you can check out both at the following links:

(Note: at the bottom of both articles...click "bengalboy" for even more pics.)

come on motorola...with all that money ur making...can't u spend it on a better, more intinuative design team? ever heard of getting new ideas? stop stretching this design as far as it will take you (to the bank in this case).

Word Up! Moto is straight up crap! It looks nice but can't do a damn thing! No functionality!

About the only improvements Motorola should worry about on the V3 are color options, data speed, memory and maybe, oh, uh yeah, reliability. But the form factor is fine. The "canary" looks like it went down the mind shaft and was overcome by methane...

The truth is that they don't have to reinvent the wheel in terms of design.

It is like the Apple model. Each generation of HDD iPOD's aren't revolutionary new models, they are improvements with added features (photo, video, larger capacity).

Mo...

Its got Cingy's Name all over it!

Give it a year....but I bet anyone Cingular picks it up....only then they will be the new ATT and that will be a featured phone!!
Ah, I can't wait
Cingular (AT&T) can have that junk. That looks uglier than the regular RAZR.
...
But even if Cingular does pick it up, will it be a 3G handset??? Don't let some fancy design drag you into the PAST! ! !
availabe to Cingular late sept or oct. it is called Cingular KRZR. quad band, 2 mega pixel camera, removable memory, edge class 10 and bluetooth a2dp. I guess we will have to wait and see

It's quite nice in your hand...

I was lucky enough to see and hold one recently. If you didn't like RAZR, you probably won't like this one. I, however, loved my V3 and V3i, so this was a nature fit.

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.

The one I held was loaded with MEdia Net and Cingular logos, if that tells you anything.

The test unit I held was speedy and seemed to have no software malfunctions that I could see (which isn't too common in an engineering sample). One interesting note is that they've borrowed the "back" button from Sony Ericsson. On the right side just below the sc...

Motorola

Motorola has designs for new Razr type cell phones coming out in 2008. They already know all the pros and cons but instead each year they make a new improved phones to attract customers although they are getting ripped of. In the end i am trying to say they purposly add cons to all of there phones to make a new phone and attract more cuutomers. My friend who happens to work at Cingular said he has about 20 people coming to have their razrs repaired or returned. Never by moto and any of its thin phones unless you would like to break it.
Note that there will likley be a higher volume of Razr returns because there is a higher volume of Razrs sold than any other single phone they sell.

Pretty stupid looking

Yep
Not surprising since most Moto phones are ugly. The RAZR's great design was a fluke.

Difference?

There is no major difference in this new razr or razr 2. The design of the current razr is pretty wide and the Razr 2 is pretty tall and narrow. The keypad also looks more simplified.
P.S Motorola is trying to take your money for their garbage phones.

Same old UI?

When is moto going to change up there fugly UI.
The least they could do is design new icons and go to a 3x4 or 4x4 layout. Is this to much to ask?
