Razr fans (yes, there are still a lot of them) can rejoice again as Cingular picks up the Motorola Razr V3xx. Though it resembles Cingular's original Razr V3 (except for the darker color), the V3xx is compatible with Cingular's growing 3.5G HSDPA network. Cingular Video support is also included, and the phone sports a dedicated Cingular TV button in the navigation array. Other features are standard for the Razr series. You'll find Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and a digital music player. Though the phone has been shipped to Cingular, Motorola said it's still not available in the carrier's stores at the moment. Look for it soon, though, for around $150 with service.

Motorola also showed its previously announced Motorola Razr Maxx at CES. As a reminder, it has a sleeker Razr shape and offers two cameras (a 2-megapixel shooter and a VGA model), Bluetooth, HSDPA supports, a speakerphone, and a digital music player. There's still no word on availability with U.S. carriers, but we're not optimistic.
