Moto Razr² debuts in US... almost

Carriers taking delivery

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

US mobile phone networks have taken delivery of Motorola's latest Razr handset - the slightly-skinnier-than-the-original Razr² - the phone maker claimed late last week. Putting it on sale to punters may take a little longer.

Consumers should get the phone in their hands within the next two weeks, Motorola added before listing AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, US Cellular and Alltel as the carriers who've agreed to offer the new slimline clamshell.

The Razr² was launched in May this year. The line-up comprises three models: the 2.5G V8, the 3G HSDPA V9 and the EvDO V9m.

All three phones sport a 2in, 320 x 240, 262,144-colour external display and a 2.2in, 320 x 240, 262,144-colour internal main screen. Each has a two-megapixel, 8x digital zoom camera, and has Bluetooth 2 with wireless stereo on board.

Pitching the handsets at music lovers, Motorola pointed to the dedicated music keys on the back of each device. It said the V8 will offer 420MB of user-accessible memory. The V9 gets 45MB, but both handsets can be expanded with 2GB MicroSD cards.

Verizon said it will offer the V9m for $350 - buyers can mail in a coupon to get $50 back - if you sign up for two years. AT&T will, in early September, offer the V9 for $300, again with a two-year contract.
