Motorola Announces New Successor To RAZR
May 15, 2007, 10:16 AM by (staff)
Motorola today announced the next successor to its RAZR platform. The RAZR2 is thinner than the original RAZR yet designed to be stronger, as well as sleeker by eliminating the antenna "chin" at the bottom. It features 2 brighter QVGA screens - 2.2" inside and a large 2" display outside. The external display can used to control many functions with the phone closed using the smart keys as well as external music controls that now offer vibration feedback. The RAZR2 features a 2 Megapixel camera, and Bluetooth. Updated. It will launch this summer as the V8 for GSM/EDGE networks, the V9 for HSDPA and V9m for EV-DO.
- V8: features quad-band GSM/EDGE, Motorola's new Linux/Java platform including new user-friendly features and a full HTML browser. Includes 2 GB of built in memory but no card slot. It is 12mm thick.
- V9: thicker than the other two models but adds noise cancellation technology, a microSD slot and video sharing. However it uses Motorola's older "Synergy" platform. It is expected in late summer with quad-band GSM and HSDPA 850/1900 for the US.
- V9m: another 12mm thick model with EV-DO and media playback keys that are visible at all times (the others stay hidden until needed). Will run carrier branded interfaces and is expected at the end of summer.

looks like KRZR?
inurface said:I totally agree with you but with a little bit of the HIDEOUSLY UGLY RAZR Maxx thrown in....lol
I have the KRZR. This looks like a cross btwn the KRZR and RAZR?
What about the Moto Q8/9, ROKR Z6, and SLDR Z8?
Don't get me wrong, the new RAZR is cool and all, but I'm also interested in the other three models they announced, especially the Z8. It comes fully loaded with a full length copy of The Borne Identity, and it's supposedly this multimedia powerhouse they have been hyping for the last two weeks, so where is all the info guys?
The Z8 is definitely not for the US, but we covered it at 3GSM:
