[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor here at CNET.com. Today we are going to take a first look at the Motorola Krazor K-1. This is a GSN version of the Krazor line, we've are at a seen the Krazor K-1 for Cingular about this is that it Krazor K-1 for T-Mobile. T-Mobile did take a different route with the color, we see have the silver color, it's a little different from the gray, we saw on the K-1 M which is a city made version in the blue for which is the Cingular version. Not really in love with this color that much, a little too shiny, it reflects just a little bit too much light in the fingerprints get all over it and they're really hard to get off, you are constantly having to wait the thing and even when you do there are streaks all over it. So really preferred that blue color on the Cingular K-1, if you want a phone where you can check yourself out in mirror before a date this might be the one for you. Here on the front we have an tiny external screen, we have a camera lens up here and again there's no flash or self-portrait mirror, but of course the whole thing acts like a mirror so that's not really an issue. Here on this side we do have a volume rocker, we have the Motorola Smart Key, we have a key for voice commands on the side and a mini USB port. Inside the phone, internal display is about the same 262,000 colors, pretty bright and colorful for most of your needs. Moving down to the navigational key pad, these are also the same as on the other Krazor's, the silver color is carried over here from outside, we do like that the navigation toggle is a bit of a bluish color and the okay button in the center is a little bit of a gold color. And there is few tactful ways of separating the keys, so somewhat easy to dial by feel but still these are flat against the surface of the phone, so they can take some getting used to. Over all though, this is a very fashion friendly found, for people that really want that slim styling. Features are pretty decent, it does have a two mega pixel camera, Bluetooth, speakerphone. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola Krazor K-1. ^M00:01:35 [ Music ]
