Motorola turned a casual night of appetizers and drinks into the main event on Tuesday at CTIA. You probably noticed when the show started on Monday we had no announcements from Moto. Later that day we were told not to miss Tuesday's soiree, and for good reason. Motorola is finally giving CDMA users the attention they've been begging for.
After recently adding a 3G version to the RAZR lineup, Motorola finally announced a CDMA RAZR, one-upping the GSM version with a 1 Megapixel camera. Initially this RAZR is single band only, and will be launched in South Korea and China. However Motorola CEO Ed Zander assured the audience his team is working their behinds off to have a version ready for the US by late 2005 or early 2006.
The v266p (above) is a CDMA Clamshell with Push to Talk, a VGA camera and dual displays.
The v323 (above) is an entry level CDMA flip phone, but it has a larger screen than most other entry level Motos and a monochrome external display.
The MS550 is a "camera first" model designed for Korea. Like similar models from LG and Samsung, the MS550 is a rather large slider style phone with a 3 Megapixel camera that flips out from the back. In addition to a high resolution sensor, the camera also feature optical zoom and a real flash.
