Verizon, Alltel, Sprint, Cingular, T-Mobile -- that looks to be the order of American major network KRZR releases now that Cingular's flavor has officially hit the streets. With nothing more than EDGE to shore up its data offering, the K1 isn't exactly a tech powerhouse, but we somehow suspect that the fashion-friendly lines, gloss, and touch controls will sell themselves to a fairly sizable (and profitable) demographic. Cingular customers can put a little piece of Motorola's (in)famous industrial design in their pockets today for $200 after contract and rebates, and on that note, we'd just like to gently remind folks that this is a good hundie over and above the smarter 3125. We're just sayin'.
Update: Whoa there, Cingy! Let's cool it there with the stealing of your competitors' shots, eh? Several readers have astutely noted that the phone being shown on Cingular's site is a CDMA K1m, not a GSM K1 -- and if you look really closely, you'll even notice that the word "Sprint" is visible in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. You're not going all CDMA on us, are you, Cingular? [Thanks to everyone who sent this in]
