It makes my blood boil when people keep harking on about the rzr type design,,,Nokia make candybar and sliders every fone they bring out so why dont you silly buggers go to them forums and argue how other makes keep bringing out candybars eh go on you soft heads,,,motorola have got this groundbreaking design what they invented and IS iconic,,,they bring out the razer design with improved apps and hardware in their ICONIC DESIGN,,,Nokia and s/e and samsung are only doing the same thing improving specs etc in the same old candybar design thats as old as the mobile fone !!! So lets look at this then,nokia are bringing out the same design since day one and still bring out the candybar design"aka 1100 model 8 years old"so they are more to blame then your ignorant sods than moto who only introduced this in june 2004 ...Moto do right in bringing out more updated razer fones as all others do candybar sliders and on it goes whereas moto shook the world and brought out somthing really different and sold millions of them "and" will sell millions more as people get wise to newer technologies and want them but do not wish to despose of the iconic razer looks and sexy styling of the handset they fell in love with..Now they can safely do that by buying the same iconic design they wish to live with each day of their lives but with all the new advances in technology built in
why do you need second screen 256k?? cant understand this... i am not that selfish to picture myself 24 hours a day with 254colors....
hey guys over there...don't talk s**t about this phone coz if not because of Moto,there wouldn't be any RAZR sharp handphones in the market today.GREAT THANKS to the Moto engineers..they are the Genius!!! and even the BIG N also trying to copy that with N76.Grow up Mr.N!!!
Among the first things that you'll notice about the new RAZR 2 are that it boasts a very shiny shell, a stark contrast to the matte finish found on the original. There's also a huge 2.0-inch color display on the outside, in addition to the 2.2-inch QVGA display on the inside. Other key features include a 2.0 megapixel camera, independent speech recognition, touch music keys, Windows Media 11, a Linux-based UI, HTML Opera browser, up to 280 hours of standby, up to 500 minutes of talk time, and a weight of about 117 grams. Cool ya.
Whatever Moto's detractors might have to say but RAZR has its fan following and nobody should deny that.Razr V8 and V9 are a good answer to N76; and if not priced exorbitantly V8/V9 will not only give the N76 a run for its money but almost get a stranglehold on the clamshell(flip phone)segment of the market.
Imagine moto phones that can hardly do anything sold millions, how about these new moto phones that can really start to do a lot with linux OS?! This phone has the best of both worlds! A fashion icon with some serious OS! even nokia can't be compared with this! Seriously speaking! Most HiTech japanese phones are using Linux and instead of Moto jumping into the Symbian bandwagon they've decided to Blaze new trails! Its most definitely innovative!
come to think about it, high megapixel Cameras are useless, just a 2mpx camera will do fine, haha, the design and other functions are most important
Could you stop please comparing Nokia with motorola I respect Nokia, but i´m tired of your comments this RAZR2 is not even similar to the N76, besides if it is about the RAZR series we are talking about unique finish and materials is pure gold and it is all packed in a wonderfull thin and iconic phone with a unique design keep it up moto thanks for this beauty!
Can someone tell me if i can use the Linux OS on this phone just like the Symbian OS ?, i was going to buy a N-series, based mostly cause it had Edge and Symbian for a few things, but i m told i can install a voice recorder for this phone,i ll change the N-series for this very cool phone : O
i think the this is a desperate atempt to get back at nokia N76. lol. oops they forgot the freakin flaaaassh!
Just a few word to clarify what is really the agenda: check Motorola's stock and sales figures... it says it all. The company's mobile division is haemoraging money, for the past 2 years they have sold more RAZR's than ever but at such a low profit margin.
The style is dating a bit, LG is miles ahead in the design stakes. I like the design, but it's is not enough... there is no big WOW factor like with the original.
Motorola will need a really kick up the ass when this phone fails to win fans.
It is not avaiable anywhere in the wrold yet until the estimated July, which probably means August-September. First, it will hit Hong Kong as most of Motorola's GSM/3G technology phones do, and then make its round to Europe and other parts of Asia, and then USA, if I'm correct, for a stocking stuffer during the holiday seasons. Estimated prices for this phone without a contract will be $500, but probably with MIR and IRs, you will be able to pick up this device for 349.00 on a 2 yr contract. I'm hoping Motorola will really deck this device out. Make an exclusive presentation box as they did for the original RAZRs for the first 1000+ sold. And hopefully, they will include the S9 handset.
On a differnet note,
The Motorola RIZR Z8 and Motorola ROKR Z6 will be available around June in Europe. The Z8 is available for preorder on http://www.motorola-shop.co.uk, and it is 334.99 pounds. The Z8 comes boxed with the S9 stereo headphones and an SD card with The Bourne Identity loaded on it. The Z6 comes bundled with the S9 only.
The Motorola Q9 H is available immediately in Italy.
Hope this helps.
