Motorola has introduced its next-generation RAZR² series of mobile phones. These handsets pack in cutting-edge features such as CrystalTalk technology, up to 2GB of on-board memory, Web browsing, real-time video and ultra-fast menu navigation all packed into a slim, strong and sleek design.
The new RAZR² series of phones include the Motorola RAZR² V8, the RAZR² V9 and the RAZR² V9m handsets. When compared with its predecessor- the RAZR, the RAZR² is thinner by around 2mm.
The Motorola RAZR² mobile phone has a dual screen, one 2-inch external screen and a 2.2-inch internal screen with twice the resolution of the original RAZR. The RAZR² phones have a seamless casing, a soft black touch back with a stunning vacuum metal front finish.
The Motorola RAZR² V9 is a 3G HSDPA handset, while the V9m a EVDO CDMA phone and the V8 a simple GSM handset.
Listed below are the features of the Motorola RAZR² family of mobile phones:
Software smarts — Some versions of RAZR² will run Linux/Java, giving Motorola entry to the next generation of mobile architecture.
More intelligent interface — The RAZR² V8 has a completely redesigned User Interface (UI) so consumers can search contacts even faster. This eliminates duplicate entries for the same person while allowing contacts to have multiple numbers. The main menu is customizable, so consumers are never more than 2-3 clicks away from favorite applications, and even messaging is easier; RAZR² automatically recognizes what type of message consumers are sending.
Speed thrills — With the new ARM 11 processor, processing speed is 10 times faster than the original RAZR and with high-speed USB 2.0 it only takes 2-3 seconds to transfer a song.
Now hear this — Motorola’s CrystalTalk technology on the RAZR² automatically adjusts audio to ensure clear calls even in a noisy environment.
It answers back — RAZR2 V8 “talks” to consumers by speaking the interactive menu, contact lists, emails and messages aloud, a feature developed for people with visual impairments, but convenient for in-car use or when you are on the go.
Tempting texts — Without even opening the phone, RAZR² users can rely on the large external screen to read messages and reply with pre-programmed text messages.
Play on — With up to 2 GB of memory, the new RAZR² rocks with stereo Bluetooth wireless technology and enough storage for approximately 1,000 songs.
Manage with ease — Microsoft Windows Media Player 11 compatibility helps consumers easily purchase, synchronize and transfer their music library to their RAZR² in only a few minutes. In some models music can be downloaded over the air at near-broadband-like wireless data speeds.
Good vibrations — The external display incorporates Motorola’s “haptics” technology, which provides users with vibrating feedback in response to their finger taps. This, combined with the virtual music keys, allows the user to effortlessly control their music.
Just browsing — The Web-browsing experience, including a full HTML browser, in the new RAZR takes advantage of its stellar internal display and high-speed wireless data connections for faster, bigger and richer surfing. Built-in email functionality gives easy, PC-like access to both personal and corporate email accounts.
Better mobile search — Debuting on the RAZR² family of devices, Motorola has incorporated Google’s new mobile search experience, which helps users quickly and easily get the information they need, bringing them highly relevant results with an absolute minimum of clicks and enabling them to add frequently accessed content to their Google homepage.
Picture this… and this — The multi-shot feature on the handset’s 2 MP camera automatically snaps up to eight new pictures so users can choose the best image from a complete series of pictures.
Watch this, real-time — A new real-time point-to-point video feature allows another wireless customer to “See What I See” while a voice call is in progress. Consumers can also store up to 2 hours of video4 footage on the device.
The new Motorola RAZR² family of handsets is expected to be available in July 2007.
