Thinking the same thing.

I completley agree with you. It has been way too long since Verizon has came out with a new phone. I've been looking on all the boards but can't seem to find any info on the next phone. I've heard of the next Razr that will have possible music on it but I don't think Verizon will have it. I personally think I am going to get the Razr since after resigning another 2 years you get $100 towards the phone. Free sounds nice!

They already do. It's the V3m. It is an mp3 player with a slot for removable memory under the battery cover.

Battery time is much improved over the V3c as well.

I was looking at RAZR too untill...

Im in almost the same situation as you. My contract is up with cingular and im going to verizon. I was looking at the RAZR and Lg VX8300. ( i dont really want or need a full keyboard like the one on the one you were showing.) The razr looked nice untill i read the reviews. Many people were unhappy with the features Verizon locked up on the phone. So unless you want the razr for its styling, i would suggest you get the LG.

PS: On the issue of new phones. Motorola just annouced new razrs that are expect to be released this fall. 1 of them ( the one that runs on CDMA) is rumored to go to Verizon. Pictures have also been leaked online showing Verizons VCAST running on one. So unfortunately for me as well they are coming out too late for me to wait.
