Razr jumps on the red bandwagon

Motorola and Sprint are the latest to join Bono's campaign against AIDS

Along with the red iPod Nano announced yesterday, Motorola has jumped on the AIDS charity bandwagon with the luscious red Razr, available from Sprint. As with the red iPod, this is part of Bono and Bobby Shriver's recent Red initiative to help combat HIV and AIDS in Africa. This new red Razr will be available in November from Sprint, and you can get it for $304.99 retail or $64.99 with a two-year service agreement.

If you're more of a Slvr fan, however, you might have to move to the U.K. to get the red version of the slim candy bar. That's right; while the red Razr is exclusive to the States, the red Slvr is exclusive to the U.K. And to up the ante of the Product Red experience, Motorola has also launched Studio Red, a site where you can download wallpaper, ring tones, and exclusive video content and learn more about the Red initiative.
