Sprint tools up with Razr

Throws fish to analysts

Sprint is to start retailing the Motorola Razr handset for the first time in November.

The US cellco is also playing catch-up with competitors by carrying the next gen update of the Razr, the Motorola Krzr and its equally unpronounceable sister, the Moto Slver.

Today's pre-announcement should go some way to placating Christopher King, an analyst with Stifel, Nicolaus & Co, who in August blamed Sprint's poor handset roster for a disappointing sales quarter. "They don't have the [Motorola] Razr," he told Bloomberg. "It's been an extremely popular product that has changed the landscape of the industry." ®
