FCC Approves Motorola Canary, Officially Called K1
Jul 14, 2006, 5:51 PM by (staff)
The FCC today approved the successor to the Motorola's RAZR, code-named Canary. The RAZR K1 has been approved as a quad-band GSM / EDGE phone with Bluetooth. The manual lists the device as the K1 (GSM) lending credibility to other evidence that K1 will be the official designation for this phone and that a CDMA model is due out on Verizon as well. Like the Capri, the K1 has a Micro SD slot under the battery cover and is due to have the same 176 x 220 screen and 2 Megapixel camera as its slider cousin. It is not known when Motorola will officially announce the K1 or the slider code-named Capri, but since the normally secretive company did not extend the confidentiality period with the FCC on the K1, it is expected to be soon.
Finally!!! a 2 megapixal camera from motorola!
The rest of their new lineup is very impressive...
LG 8300 (one of the best), LG Chocolate, LG 9900 (upcoming), RAZR V3m, and now the RAZR K (Canary)..
i have already had this phone...
Looks Nice but wont buy
This is going....
Oh yeah?, wait til the LG Chocolate flip phone comes out in 2007.
Thing to expect upon purchae:
-Antiquated menu and unser interface
-Sh1tty keypad (courtesy of the V3 and IF it's a flat piece of junk with no tactile feedback like the V3)
-Mediocre reception (compared to a Nokia). At least you beat LG and maybe Samsung when it comes to this!
But it looks cool! Not. V3 looks were cool a year ago when not everybody and their trailer trash dog had one.
btw, Im the first poster on this, hah
V3i is expected in mid-to-late August.
I have no problem paying $500 for a high end phone...That is one that is very small, has a lot of talk time, decent sized type, very rugged, automatic volume level control in noisy environments and BT.
Camera is unnecessary,...
how much is this gonna cost
Ugly + its Motorola
But hopefully those of us who frequent sites like Phone Scoop have higher standards of mobile technology than to buy something just for it'...
Approved only for GSM?!
