Motorola's latest thin phone comes to a GSM carrier.

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 card slot. On the downside, the quad-band world phone (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) isn't compatible with Cingular's 3G network as data speeds top out at EDGE. The Krzr K1 is available for $199 with service or $399 if you pay full price. Read our Krzr K1 review for a full report.
