Will the GSM/HSDPA version succeed?

Appearently, Motorola's newer phones have yet to still surpass the popularity of the original RAZR. Almost all GSM carriers still carry the original RAZR. The V3i, on the other hand, was not very popular, and is no longer carried by AT&T or Dobson. The KRZR K1 also failed to meet the popularity of the original RAZR, and has been discontinued by Dobson. AT&T still carries the KRZR and the RAZR V3xx.

My question is:
Could the RAZR2 meet the popularity that the original RAZR did, at least for the GSM and HSDPA versions? I don't think that AT&T will be carrying the RAZR2 V8 as it is not 3G. The V8 may be carried by T-Mobile and SunCom, while AT&T will go for the V9.

Thank you Captain Obvious. The reason almost every major carrier still carries the original Razr because its cheap. It can be found anywhere from $0-$50 and kills most entry level handsets out there. As Nokia has proven, entry level is the path to #1.

The v3xx variant has done pretty well for itself. It's still selling strong and is one of the most popular handsets in AT&T's current lineup.

Perhaps the V3xx may continue to be sold after the RAZR2 V9 is released, however, the KRZR may get the axe.

As an interesting note, most CDMA carriers have discontinued the V3c and now carry the V3m. The V3m successfuly has beaten the popularity of the V3c. This is contrary to the V3i/V3r's performance in the market, where it failed to meet the original RAZR's popularity.

Also, when do you think we may see a SLVR2?

I can't speak for other CDMA carriers, but Verizon blew it with V3m. V3m is a piece of **** compared to V3c, especially since the introduction of Verizon's stupid-a** fugly red and black bars UI that runs very slowly and looks fugly.

I love the OEM UI on a motorola like it was on the V710 or the first non-CDMA RAZR.

There are so, so, so many variations of the original RAZR to be keeping track of all these different kinds! It's confusing.

And yes, I believe the RAZR2 will be very, very successfull, peoople will like the large external screen, and I think the crystal clear talk is cool too.

I look forward to reading a review of it here on PhoneScoop sometime next month.
