We expected that it would happen, and today we got confirmation that the Motorola Razr2 has at long last arrived at T-Mobile. The carrier announced it would sell the Razr2 V8 for $249 with service, making it the last major carrier to offer Moto's Razr revamp. From the outside the V8 has the same sleek design as both the GSM V9 and CDMA V9m, but inside there are some important differences. The V8 lacks 3G support (T-Mobile has yet to launch a wireless broadband network) and it doesn't fully utilize the external display. For a full analysis, check out our full Razr2 V8 review or see the Razr2's profile in our slide show.
