The latest word on the street has Cingular launching their version of the Motorola MOTOKRZR -- alias K1 -- some time in the first week of November, possibly on or around the 4th. This would line up nicely with what we'd been hearing before regarding a September / October launch window when you factor in the typical date slippage, application of Murphy's Law, forces of nature, and whatnot. Of course, this all sorta fubars the continuity of Cingular's RAZR pipeline, considering that they just managed to finally get the V3i out the door a few weeks ago -- but far be it from us to suggest that it should prompt them to hold a new release.
