RAZR2 To Be Available Via Most U.S. Carriers
Will the GSM/HSDPA version succeed?
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?
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.
