How refreshing is this? Despite initial promises of September for its own version of the V9m, it now looks like Verizon will be offering up the hotly anticipated (or at least Motorola wants it to be hotly anticipated) successor to the RAZR starting August 29 on the 'nets. That'll apparently be followed by an in-store launch on September 4, giving Sprint just about the shortest exclusivity period ever. AT&T, we don't suppose you have any August surprises for us too, do ya?
