I heard a while back that this RAZR2(V9) was coming to Sprint along with the new ROKR Z6m slider phone. Does anyone know if this is true or not because Sprint needs some good phones that are worth peoples money besides the Upstage and Mogul?

There will be a CDMA version of this phone, but not before teh GSM version I would imagine.

The V9m isn't on Phone Scoop yet. Should be soon though. VZW is getting it in July.

The V9m is going to be downgraded. Why? Seems like Moto has something against CDMA carriers.. LOL.

65k color TFT for V9m
262k color TFT for GSM V9 and V8.

I think it has to due with battery life

Also a 225 MHz processor whereas the V8 and V9 have 500MHz processors

Wow that's a lot of power for just a phone. My Samsung i730 is a Windows Mobile PDA phone and it has a 520 mHz.

Still dont see it but anyways i hope your wrong because that would stink.

Follow this link to the RAZR2 flash site. After it has loaded, click on the specs link in the lower right-hand corner, and click on V9m. It will clearly show just how much more crippled the V9m is compared to the V9 and the V8.

If theres no crystal Talk and no hacked firmware im not getting this there is no point.

i've got the lg 8100 ... even if the V9m is "crippled" it's still going to be an upgrade, right?

would you take the V9m or the lg 8700?

Jul 2, 2007, 11:27 AM
If sprint got the v9m and rokr z6m would they come out on july 15th??, because I heard that they are releasing a few new phones then.
