Right around a month ago, we heard that Angstrom Power had managed to stuff some of its sophisticated hydrogen fuel cells into a MOTOSLVR L7. That prototype, friends, is what you see about. Unfortunately, we're no closer to realizing when this stuff will actually escape the proverbial beta stage, a...

Motorola has plonked down two new cellphones in Taiwan today, although the usage of "new" is very much a stretch in this case. The L72 SLVR follows on from its L7 ancestor with the same 11.5mm "thinness," but brings HSDPA, a zoom and auto-focus free 2-megapixel camera, and some other standard featur...

Hey, remember the SLVR L7c? You know, the candybar version of the CDMA RAZR -- the one with circa 2005 specs? Well, as you might recall, Verizon had some grand plans to get this one out the door at some point; turns out they still do, and we have some high-quality photography here to prove it. Thou...
