Motorola finally ships iTunes phone in UK

RAZR V3im brings jukebox app to Brits

The essential guide to IT transformation

Motorola has at least allowed UK consumers to buy a handset that incorporates Apple's iTunes music software. Phones made available in the US with iTunes have to date shipped over here without the application.

The new phone is the RAZR V3im, a updated version of the V3i Motorola launched in the UK earlier this year. You can read our review of the iTunes-less handset here.

The maroon-hued new model sports 128MB of memory to which you can add up to 512MB using TransFlash/Micro SD memory cards. No matter how many songs you squeeze in, iTunes will only list and play 100, which has always limited the usefulness of the application.

The V3im is a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS phone with Bluetooth 1.2 on board. It's got a 1.23 megapixel camera with 8x zoom and a 176 x 220, 262,144-colour main display. It weighs 100g and measures 9.8 x 5.3 x 1.4cm.

Motorola claims the V3im offers 200-300 minutes' talk time and up to 310 hours on stand-by. Prices range from £265 for a SIM-free model down to nothing at all - though expect to have to take out an airtime contract if you want the phone for free. ®
