We mentioned earlier this month that Cingular/AT&T was going to update its 3.5G HSDPA phone lineup with the much-awaited Motorola Razr V3xx. Well the time has come because the carrier just launched the Razr V3xx today, and even more details of the phone have been released. The most notable of which is that the Razr V3xx will be Cingular's first 3.6 Mbps HSDPA handset. Previous HSDPA phones from Cingular (like the LG CU500) were capped out at 1.8 Mbps due to network limitations, but the company is planning to increase the network's data speeds later this year.

Touted as the "next-generation Razr," the Razr V3xx is decked out with Cingular Video and Cingular Music support, which suits its high speed nicely. There's even a dedicated Cingular TV button to get your video fix quicker. Other interesting features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music and a video player, stereo Bluetooth, mobile e-mail, a microSD card slot, and a built-in Opera Web browser. The tri-band GSM phone is available right now for $229.99 but after a two-year contract and a mail-in rebate, the price is cut down to a very affordable $79.99.
