T-Mobile goes crazy with Krzr

The Motorola Krzr K1 phone will soon head to T-Mobile.

Motorola's thin, shiny Krzr K1 will conclude its sweep of the cell phone world next month when it heads to T-Mobile, the lone holdout of the national carriers. The T-Mobile bird over at Reaper PC/PDA has been singing a lot lately with news of T-Mobile/Moto marriages. First, it told us of the sexy Motorola Rizr Z3 and now it shows us a T-Mobile Krzr K1 promotional sheet. T-Mobile's Krzr comes in a rather boring silver "quartz" color as opposed to Cingular's eye-catching blue, but the feature set is largely the same. There's a speakerphone, a 2-megapixel camera, a music player (but no external music controls), stereo Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, and quadband (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) world phone support. Unlike the CDMA Krzr K1m, it lacks 3G support, so data speeds top out at the 2.5G EDGE. But since T-Mobile has yet to switch on its 3G network, it really doesn't matter.

The Krzr K1m came to Alltel, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless and Sprint last year; the Krzr K1 arrived at Cingular only earlier this month.
