A Razr refresh

A Razr refresh

Say what will you about the Motorola Razr V3's shortcomings, but there's no denying the popularity of this slim cell phone. The Razr currently ranks as a top-selling handset this year, and Motorola's U.S. market share during the third quarter eclipsed even Nokia's. But don't think the company is resting on its laurels. Today, Motorola announced five new Razr models that range from those with simple cosmetic changes to full-blown retrofits. In addition to the black and silver versions, the Razr will now be available in an eye-catching pink and a more subtle ice blue. The long-awaited Razr V3c will operate on CDMA networks and comes with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and an MP3 player; the Razr V3i world phone promises a 1.23-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, and support for iTunes (much like the Motorola Rokr E1); and the V3x world phone will have a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, an MP3 player, and support for 3G UMTS networks. Availability is set for late this year. Although no carriers have been formally announced, it's no mystery where the Razr V3c will land. As a CDMA phone with BREW support, Verizon Wireless will be the carrier. The rumored debut is November 28, but considering Verizon is reportedly still testing the phone, the premiere date is far from certain.
