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 L9 resembles the high-end Slvr L7 and has a soft-touch keypad, GSM/EDGE support, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel shooter and a music player. There's also a Micro SD card slot--let's just hope they didn't cram it behind the battery.

The W510 is a midtier flip phone with GSM/EDGE support, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a memory card slot.

Finally, the Krzr K3 is an HSDPA workhouse with two cameras. The primary shooter has a 2-megapixel resolution while the other is a VGA camera for use with video calling. It lacks the external music controls, but it offers stereo Bluetooth, a music player, 50MB of internal storage, and an expandable memory card slot.
