Moto copying LG?!?! Who would have thought....

I guess Moto is trying to trump LG at its own game by using touch sensitive buttons on the KRZR. While this phone looks pretty nice...I'd still rather have a Chocolate.
im sure the KRZR will be a lot cheaper than the Chocolate though... im looking at the KRZR phone or the SLVR L7c

Dude. Simply LG copied Moto's original but unprotected idea (well, it's not need to be patent because it's like PDLC or Touchpad within materials) while Moto is struggling to execute their own idea (Read all news archives how bad Moto delivered their ...

Availability of H601 Bluetooth headset in US

Anyone know more specifically when the H601 will be available in the US? And is this the same as the H670 in UK? Thanks in advance.

Sorry Nokia Nokia but Nokia phones just arene't very attractive. You speek as though Motorola's are ugly, yet Nokia (excluding their 3rd Q portfolio) has manufactured some of the ugliest phone over the last 2 years. Motorola is arguably the most groundbreaking cell phone company when it comes to the design. I'll never say that Nokia's don't get excellent reception, but they are dogface.com ugly.
Ditto that! Good reply Djanifer9512

This phone is garbage!!!

All Motorola phones are garbage. They should come with garbage can, so you can throw the phone away once you get it. Cause thats where its gonna end up anyways. Theyre phones break too easily. I mean seriously, does Motorola have any other designs? They keep coming out with the same type of design....and their phones dont even have an operating system.
Gee NokiaNokia, I wonder why you bash Motorola. What brand could you possibly like.
...
hahah this post is unreal.
I have a RAZR, nonstop glitches and horrible battery (Thanks Verizon UI). But the design is still better than anything Nokia has out... What did it take them, a full year for the 8800 to get to market and it still is $500... Nokia sux.
hey well i want you to hear something really really cool and actually enlightening.... ready.... ready.... nokia sucks for technology!!! lol who would put an FM radio in a phone??? lol why dont we just make it a cd player too.... lol get to know compa...

Man, motorolas and nokias suck equally as bad. They are the two worst brands for cell phones. There's no point in arguing which one is better. They're both trash.
...
Speaking of garbage. This post is verbatim what you said of the first Moto 2006 aticle. STFU already.
...
Not garbage! Sales of Razr over 50 million surpassing that of the ipod!

Sales numbers don't lie! If it were garbage as you claim; no one would buy it!

It is the hottest cellphone in the world! Period.

oh, motorola

you bore me.

Every phone you have released lately has that wonderful RAZR (shoon to bwe shortened to RR, when they release the KRZYRAZR V3XivM^3) look and feel to it.

This, I am not a fan of.

what if every car produced by Chevy looked entirely the same... not very fun is it?

in a business where people shoot for looks, it's either innovate or die.
Amen
Motorola is not innovative....they'll use the same design over and over and now they're copying LG with the touch sensitive controls and Samsung withe the sliders.

Give it up Motorola! there are only sooo many idiots in the world. The rest of us...

Very interesting subject. While I understand the comment that everything has the same wonderful RAZR look and feel to it, I think they are very far from everything looking entirely the same. I agree that it would not be very fun if every car produce...

I love the look of the Razr and plan on buying the V3xx when it comes out!

Hope it is in black, blue and lime; not the ugly gunmetal Grey that is so ugly! Even my gunsmith hate the color and he works on guns for a living and love the color of bl...

cdma version have verizon ui??

will the verizon cdma version of the phone have the moto ui? or will it have the verizon one?

in my opinion, i really hate the verizon ui. so much that if this phone has it, i probably wouldn't get it.
all non-smartphones on verizon have their UI. they way i understand it, there is no choice in the matter. either it gets verizon's ui or it's not sold on their network.

Rich:

I had a customer come into my store with a a1200.

How much does the maxx resemble the a12?
Say what? Confused

Not at all. This is the MOTORAZR V3maxx (on the right):

Peace Corps FONE / Working Assets (Sprint MVNO)

Just a thought.

The FONE series might end up being one less thing to give people culture shock.

Which Networks will carry these phones?

I'm a Cingular subscriber, and I'll be eligible for a new phone in January of 07...

It looks like these will be out then, but will Cingular have them? I'm assuming yes, since it's a GSM phone...

Anyone know the scoop on this?

3G on GSM KRZR?

I wonder, will the GSM KRZR come with HSDPA or something? I assume that when it comes out late this year or early next year, It will be through Cingular Wireless, which has made a strong push on their 3G network. Soo, you'd think it would support HSDPA or something no?..

Either way though, im very excited for the KRZR to arrive.

Hmm, I bet it'll cost like $300+ when it does.


Rolling Eyes Sho, I'd pay that much.
No. The GSM KRZR is strictly 2G (for now).

The new HSDPA phones are the RAZR XX and RARZ MAXX. The versions announced today are only for Europe, Asia, etc, but in theory one of those could get a US version.

I doubt it would be both, so I hope it...

With the KRZR you forgot to mention...

...the A2DP bluetooth profile. The GSM version gets it but neither CDMA versions will get it. That stinks. The only way I would have considered getting this phone is if the US CDMA version had the 2 megapixel camera, QVGA screen and A2DP bluetooth profile.
Are you sure that the cdma version doesn't have a2dp? In the article it says that both the KRZR and RIZR will have a2dp but doesn't mention anymore than that.

Will this phone work on Sprint's U.S. Network?

Wondering if KRZR will work on Sprint's U.S. Network? Anyone know?
sure it will "work" as it is CDMA but i could promise you they won't pick it up, they'll just clone it.

Colors?

Will the GSM version only be available in blue or will it be available in both blue and grey? likewise for the CDMA...
Oh come on... this is Motorola we're talking about! Rolling Eyes

There will be one color, followed closely by another. A few months later, there will be a third color.

...and then, exactly 7.2 months later, 17 more colors.

although these are not official dimensions, i'm told that the rizr measures

106mm x 46mm x 16mm

the KRZR is about 3 or 4 mm narrower.

Verizon??

Great Article! Will the Motorola Slider phone be released for verizon>?? If so anytime soon?
No word on a CDMA RIZR yet.

They just announced a CDMA SLVR. At least they are doing a CDMA KRZR.
...
on the moto web site the date on the display KRZR phone says 11/30/06. maybe a hint of a possible release date?
