Lately, I've received a lot of reader e-mails inquiring about the status of the. It was supposed to be out with carrier announcements by the end of last year, but 2006 has arrived, and there's no sign of the slim candy bar cell phone. I posed the question to Motorola reps at CES, and their response was only that the phone is delayed. They wouldn't give a reason for the holdup, but delays such as these are quite common when new cell phones are introduced. I'll have further details as soon as I get an update.
