Oh fun, we finally got to fool around with a fresh n' new Motorola RAZR 2 V8 on our own time. (The last time we caught one was at its launch -- we were a little rushed and had a severe lack of decent lighting.) Unfortunately, Moto's only JUIX device-equipped RAZR 2 is the 3G-free V8 (the V9 has HSDPA, but uses their crappy Synergy interface, as does the EV-DO capable V9m), but it was nice to take it for a spin even if we couldn't get high speed data on it.

Funny thing about the RAZR 2, even though the internal screen is 0.2-inches larger, it's actually the external display that seems more capacious. Also, don't laugh, our favorite part about this thing is the rear -- it's just got really nice, clean lines. The rest, well, it's a Motorola phone, so take that how you will and adjust your expectations accordingly.
