-- I just Brian -- for cnet.com and they were taking it. First look at the Motorola Droid RAZR and for Verizon Wireless. Available for pre order now and expect to hit store shelves September 13 for just 9999. The Droid RAZR impacts lots of high end Smartphone features for in mid range price.

I'm also expand the circles widget that provides -- information -- alerts time weather and battery level. All in a slick and graphically engaging interface. -- Motorola I know you wanna keep this circle things yourself but I'd be willing to pay top dollar for four bucks sounds a great deal to me.
