Alright, so maybe we harshed on Motorola for rehashing the original RAZR (or RZR, as the case may be) yet again just a little bit too soon. phoneArena has scored shots of a phone claimed to be a "VU30" destined for Verizon, and while the phone's name probably rings just a little too familiar for LG's comfort, the design language seems distinctly un-Motorola and unlike anything we've really seen with other major manufacturers. It's not a groundbreaking design we're looking at here by any stretch of the imagination, but if Moto's looking at cremating and spreading the ashes of the RAZR look and feel once and for all, we think that's a pretty wise move on the long road to profitability. Not much else is known about the VU30 at the moment, so we'll keep a close eye on the situation.
