New Motorola Phones Get A Human Touch
Jul 24, 2006, 7:31 PM by (staff)
Motorola today announced a CDMA SLVR, and made official the two handsets that were previously code-named the Canary and Capri. The clamshell is officially called the KRZR while the slider is now known as the RIZR. All phones feature Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot, and 176 x 220 displays.
- KRZR K1: The RAZR successor has a narrower profile and new finishes. It features quad-band GSM / EDGE (class 12), a 2 megapixel camera with MPEG-4 video recording, a music player with MP3 and AAC capabilities, stereo Bluetooth, and Motorola's sync and Screen3 technologies.
- KRZR K1m: A KRZR for CDMA networks. Features EV-DO high speed data, but downgrades the camera to 1.3 megapixels. Also features a media player with touch-sensitive playback keys hidden beneath the glass of the phone's cover, as well as support for location-based services such as turn-by-turn directions.
- RIZR Z3: Shares all of the same features as the GSM KRZR in a slightly wider sliding form factor. The RIZR is more camera-focused than its clamshell cousin - adding a landscape viewfinder mode as well as an LED flash.
- SLVR L7c: Identical to the original SLVR, including Bluetooth, VGA camera, and microSD card slot, but with CDMA, EV-DO high-speed data, BREW, and support for location-based services.

They have some snapshots of each of the phones.
I don't suppose anyone has any availability dates
Anyone have a clue as to when it'll be possible to buy one of these (any of the new models).
You people need to RELAX!!
All in all I think everyone needs to take a chill pill. You people complain and complain and then when the phone comes out you are the first person in lin...
Hey Ya'll Help Me Please!!!
"Katana" is Japanese for "sword".
Rich, possible mistake?
If this is so, then it seems as though the CDMA version (the K1) is in fact the phone with the 2 megapixel camera. Leaving the GSM version with the 1.3 megapixel camera.
This would not be surprising seeing as the CDMA variants of the RAZR always had higher resolution cameras.
See Moto's website for detail:

2.0 megapixel camera only available in the MOTOKRZR K1.
K1c = CDMA = 1.3MP
KRZR K1 (GSM, AKA Canary)
KRZR K1m (CDMA, AKA K1c)
RIZR Z3 (AKA Capri)
FONE F3 (GSM)
FONE F3c (CDMA)
To make matters even more ...
another set of easy breakable phone models...
how do you even pronounce these names? OK the RAZR name was cool.... these names are just lame and getting out of hand
KRZR = I always called this one the CRUISER (I know that there is no U ...
RIZR = riser
On top of that guys from Chicago are sticking with Jay Leno's chin here. That could have been designed out as well. Anyhow, disappointment from the first generation of razr.
Not balanced all in all: width, length, chin.
Won't be buying one for sure.
But i really dont blame them at all, because im sure the target market for these phones is alot younger than we expect (16-24? correct me if I'm wrong on this)
You associate the KRZR with the RZR so i guess its a good move on the manufactures part.
*shrugs* idk...i would rather have called the Motorola Fusion...now with triple-blade action and a natural oil that leaves your skin feeling like a baby's bottom
I was just thinking the same thing about a month ago that the new moto thin phone sh...
CORRECTION - K1m
I know this is a little off topic but....
I'll look for them in 2008 when they're really released. With every new phone comes speculation at when it will come out . . . Q1 . . . . Q2. . . . . (of which year?)
So much for the L7c coming to Sprint
No "Chocolate" Buttons on GSM KRZR???
A shame, as it looks to be a promising upgrade even to the V3i (m), although the build quality and form factor are probably not as good, would have to hold one to know.
No mas RAZR
Personally, I want the E900, but that's just me.
