What a day for RAZR fans. First Verizon announces a September drop date for the upcoming RAZR V9m, and now Sprint chimes in with a release date of their own. Announced this afternoon, the V9m, a.k.a. Moto RAZR 2 will be available to Sprint customers beginning August 22nd, and in retail stores beginning September 4th. For anyone keeping score, the online date is at least 9 days before Verizon’s vague “September” date. Go Sprint! The phone will be available online and via customer care for $249 without rebates. No additional incentives have been announced. The EV-DO-capable handset features Sprint TV, Sprint NFL Mobile, and a variety of other Sprint-specific data services. We’d wager to say that this will be Sprint’s most desirable non-smartphone, so if you’re in the market for a new CDMA handset, you might want to give this one a whirl.

Thanks, Ryan!
