Cate Blanchett's got one, now you can too

You no longer have to be an Academy Award finalist to get your hands on a black Motorola Razr V3, one of the most stylish phones on the market.

Cate Blachett, Hilary Swank, Jamie Foxx, Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood got theirs back in February in an Oscar gift basket, but now you no longer need to be an Academy Award finalist to get your hands on a black Motorola Razr V3, one of the most stylish phones on the market.

Motorola has today announced the general availability of the Motorola Razr BLK V3 as an alternative to its coveted silver model. Like its original V3 Razr counterpart, the black handset is made almost entirely of metal, specifically aircraft grade aluminium and magnesium and its keypad is a unique nickel-plated copper alloy.

In addition to its sleek design, the Razr BLK V3 feature set includes a built in camera with digital zoom, MPEG4 video playback, speaker phone, Bluetooth and quad-band technology that allows the phone to work in over 100 countries. It also offers a 2.2 hi-res colour screen, 3D graphics engine, and precision cut keypad with electroluminescent blue backlighting. Australian RRP is $968.47 for the full kit (incl. Paladin Headset, Cable & Pouch), and AU$848.84 for the standard kit.

The ultra-slim metal-clad flip phone has been making consistent appearances in CNET.com.au's 10 Ten Most Popular Phones each month. A gushing Motorola press announcement claims that "the Razr BLK V3 will be to wireless devices what the little black dress, the knee-high black stiletto boot or the black leather jacket are to fashion."
