FCC Approves Motorola Canary, Officially Called K1

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!

finally something good is goign to come to verizon that has great sleek new look and with a 2 megapizal camera....happy.. and can't wait... r their goign to be any othercolors? or is it just black for verizon?
Verizon has the a990 with a 3.2megapixel cam...

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)..
This is the GSM version. Another site has indicated that the CDMA version won't have a 2 MP camera.
its funny because the razr should have had those features the K1 has, im more interested in the canary(slider)
Motorola had had a 1.2 MP camera out for a few years in Europe. I had one in my v635 which I got last year & I have on in my RAZR v3i with iTunes as well.
The K1 will not be coming to Verizon, but the K1m will be and it has a 1.3 megapixal camera. now if you want a camera with the same spec, or better for a camera. The Samsung A990 has a 3.2 megapixal camera. and it is in Verizon stores now. So anyway i...

Looks Nice but wont buy

This phone looks nice but i would not buy it.. because the regular RAZR is already hard for me to hold, and now THIS phone is even smaller, making it even harder. 😑 This is just my point of view, but the Motorola v3X is different even though it is a RAZR, it is not as thin as it is AND it is ANOTHER MOTOROLA PHONE WITH A 2 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA!!!!!! also with a MP3 player 😁

This is going....

This is going to ba almost the same thing as the Razr V3c and what is the big deal... the color? Come on people... moto can come out with some newer phones than just the razr in a new costume!!!! Dont ya think....

Oh yeah?, wait til the LG Chocolate flip phone comes out in 2007.

It will be the RAZR killer.
the Chocolate is a phone inside an ipod. thats it.
I agree with you marufio. LG makes the coolest and best phones ever.
Oops I meant to say I agree with matrix.

Another POS

...made by Motorola...

Thing to expect upon purchae:

-Antiquated menu and unser interface
-Sub-par camera
-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.
and everybody and their trailer trash dog will have this one too just like they have an ipod. πŸ™„ All because everyone has one doesn't mean that it's good people. Think, learn.
Actually, the menu on the K1 is supposed to be much better and significantly faster than previous Motorolas. It is said to load in about five seconds.

this thing looks pimp! whens this bizatch going to hit the shelves? You think days, weeks, or months? The article above says it is expected soon.....what does soon mean? πŸ™‚

btw, Im the first poster on this, hah
Rumor has it late this month for VZW. That's only a rumor... πŸ™„
K1 expected in November - probably late November since there isn't an exact date out there. I've held a K1 with fully functioning Cingular setup - so I know it's going there.

V3i is expected in mid-to-late August.

Another Winner!!!!!

Now everybody that has the RAzor is gonna want this one too becuase of the innovative design that im sure other manufacturers will want to copy like they did the Razor. The Sanyo Hummingbird.
The samsung sparrow!!! 🀣 🀣
Bigger is not better.
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

this phone is easily gonna be $400 mayb $399 with a 2 year contract. just because it a new model. and it the same phone. make me sick they change one thing and jack up the price.

Ugly + its Motorola

2 good reason not to buy one.
Ok, Motorola is enough of a reason not to buy it maybe, but ugly?????? It's a damn good looking phone! ! ! !

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?!

Looks like its only approved for GSM so far. Correct me if im wrong though. Does that mean this will be first on GSM again?
