We have to admit we were pretty blown away by the responses from our exclusive pics of the Motorola RAZR3. So with this in mind (and the fact that it’s Sunday) we thought we’d have a little fun today and share a gallery’s worth of pictures and information about how this particular phone, which also happens to star in a YouTube video, came to be. All of this — and more — is available right after the jump. More →
We’re sure by now you’ve all seen the video overview of the Motorola RAZR3, so instead of running with that we thought we’d do our part by sharing some previously unseen photos of the now defunct handset. There’s really nothing for us to say about the flip phone that packs a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G and Symbian UIQ, but it’s always neat to see what might have been, right? Hit the jump for some more pics!
Thanks, Travis! More →
We know what you’re thinking, the DROID and CLIQ are just too cool, I need something more lame. Well, Motorola has got you covered. Say hello the the MOTO Klassic. This new hotness oddness lameness clamshell will only be available in Korea for the time being but the specs are pretty mind blowing: blazing 2G connectivity, a 5 megapixel camera, external touch screen, and (brace yourself) an “espresso color keypad.” Truth be told, we weren’t completely sold on this one until we read about the espresso colored keypad. So put down those wallets DROID fans, you might want to just wait and see if this hot little number is coming to the good old U.S.A. More →
Motorola’s plans are thwarted once again by canning the highly anticipated RAZR 3, codenamed Ruby. After putting some effort into reviving and continuing the RAZR line with this new phone, it looks like they’ve changed their minds and are shifting focus elsewhere. Though the original RAZR was wildly successful, going from overpriced down to free in just a year and a half after its release, the RAZR 2 failed to see the same results. It’s hard to say whether the RAZR 3 would have seen a come back for Motorola, but anything that can be said now is pure speculation. Jumping on Android and focusing on devices that will carry the platform, Motorola is taking another direction by being part of the Open Handset Alliance. The electronics giant is now ditching the Symbian platform that was originally intended for the new RAZR shortly after restructuring their mobile division. Will Moto be doing anything right in the near future? If they intend on staying in business, we should hope so. We’ve always got a special place for you in our hearts, Motorola.
