T-Mobile goes for the bling

The carrier picks up the Motorola Razr V3i Dolce & Gabbana

When Motorola launched the Razr V3i Dolce & Gabbana, the most ridiculous thing about it wasn't its brash gold skin but rather its sky-high $400 price tag. After all, it was just a regular old Razr. The only difference was it came with a label and a Dolce & Gabbana cell phone dangle.

But now there's good news for anyone itching to flash the device on the street but lacking the necessary dollars to make it happen. As of today T-Mobile now offers the phone for a somewhat more reasonable $300 with service.

Interestingly, though, the Dolce & Gabbana handset does not come with integrated support for iTunes. We're not fans of the iTunes/Motorola marriage by any means, but the support for Apple's popular service is one of the major selling points of Cingular's original Razr V3i. T-Mobile customers will have to live with Moto's generic music player, though all other features are the same.
