Boost Mobile is often known for their iDEN/Walkie-talkie phones, as their "Where you at?" ads would suggest. However, the youth-oriented Sprint-Nextel offspring also offers a few non-iDEN phones, and its latest is the Motorola Krzr K1m. The K1m has all the features of the Sprint version, such as an MP3 player, a 1.3-megapixel camera, GPS, as well as EV-DO support, and is available for $249.99. It also includes a preloaded service called "The Latest," which gives you access to information such as news, sports, and stock market updates throughout the day. Premium channels … Read more
I was tempted to post this yesterday morning, but opted to wait a day because I thought I'd be attacked by the "But I haven't seen the Lost finale yet and now you've spoiled it!" crowd if I did. Anyway, just for safety's sake, IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LOST SEASON FINALE AND DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS, DO NOT READ THIS POST.
Anyhoo. Those of us who did watch the Lost season finale know that in a super shocking twist at the end, it was revealed that the episode's … Read more
We've got to tip our hats to Hong Kong: It's not often that a city gets its very own special edition of a phone. For whatever reason, Motorola has dedicated a version of its Krzr K1 clamshell handset to the metropolis, in "champagne gold" no less.
It's not quite the $10,000 Peter Aloisson model, but we'll go out on a limb and speculate that it'll cost less. And this one come with other perks as well, Electronista says, such as "a coupon or a free gold nail-polish pack at Sa Sa … Read more
Don't think that T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless are taking a rest after the end of the CTIA show last week. A quick look at their Web sites today shows that both carriers have added new phones to their lineups. Though it's not a surprise T-Mobile stepped in to formerly offer the Motorola Krzr K1. The GSM version of the Krzr landed at Cingular/AT&T last month, while Sprint and Verizon introduced the CDMA Krzr K1m last year. T-Mobile's K1 is silver (Cingular opted for blue) but the feature set is standard including Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel … Read more
Today, Sprint and TeleNav announced they are expecting a little cell phone/GPS lovechild sometime in April. They've named the location-based service (LBS) Sprint Navigation, and it brings a bundle of navigation joy, such as:Text- and voice-guided turn-by-turn directions 3D maps Pedestrian mode Real-time traffic alerts Local search with more than 10 million points of interest Gas finder by lowest price
Sprint Navigation will be available on most Power Vision phones, including the Motorola Razr V3m, the Motorola Krzr, and the LG Fusic, with several data plan options. The new Sprint Power Vision Navigation Pack gives you unlimited … Read more
Motorola's thin, shiny Krzr K1 will conclude its sweep of the cell phone world next month when it heads to T-Mobile, the lone holdout of the national carriers. The T-Mobile bird over at Reaper PC/PDA has been singing a lot lately with news of T-Mobile/Moto marriages. First, it told us of the sexy Motorola Rizr Z3 and now it shows us a T-Mobile Krzr K1 promotional sheet. T-Mobile's Krzr comes in a rather boring silver "quartz" color as opposed to Cingular's eye-catching blue, but the feature set is largely the same. There's … Read more
After a relatively low-key CES, Motorola pulled no punches in Barcelona and announced a new series of phones at the annual 3GSM show. Besides the GSM Q, which is big news by itself, Moto also unveiled more updated models to its powerhouse thin-phone lineup.
The Rizr Z8 incorporates the original Rizr's sexy design but adds its own unique "kick slide" form factor that cradles the head much like a flip phone does. Inside is quad-band world phone support, HSDPA compatibility, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, an impressive 90MB of integrated memory, and a memory card slot.
The Slvr … Read more
We knew it was coming, we just didn't know when. But as of today Cingular Wireless customers finally can get their hands on one of Motorola's sexiest thin phone, the Krzr K1. Though the CDMA Krzr K1m has been out with Sprint, Verizon Wireless, Alltel, and U.S. Cellular for several months, GSM fans have had to wait on the sidelines for a phone that clearly outshines the popular Razr when it comes to design.
The Krzr K1 comes in an attractive blue skin and offers a 2-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, a digital music player, and a memory … Read more
Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and there may be a few red cell phones out there for you to give your loved one on that special day (or that commercialized, overhyped holiday, depending on your point of view).
Cingular/AT&T launched the Samsung Sync in red earlier this month, and we've heard that Verizon will launch not one but two red phones soon. According to the My:Tech News Blog, a red Motorola Krzr K1m (dubbed the Krzr Fire) and a red LG Chocolate (dubbed the Strawberry Chocolate) have appeared on Verizon's "testman" Web site, … Read more
Motorola remains hard at work pumping out new models from its big, thin-phone machine. Pictures of updated versions of the Krzr and Rizr trickled into the blogosphere yesterday, after Moto showed the phones to company investors. Both the Krzr K3 and the Rizr Z8 should feature all the goodies of the existing models but add 3G support as well. No word on availability, but stay tuned.
