It used you be that if you wanted to round up some chums on a Google+ video hangout in Chrome to figure out how Sherlock really faked his death, you all had to download and install a plugin first. 'Twas hardly a dealbreaker for most, but the process was just annoying enough to keep some people fro

Somebody out there really loves us. An anonymous tipster just sent in a handful of pics of Motorola's impending followup to the RAZR -- formerly dubbed the Canary, and now known by the nearly-unpronounceable series of letters KRZR -- running on Verizon's CDMA network. Nothing here that we haven't s

If you've had any lingering questions about Motorola's RAZR successor, the KRZR -- aka Canary, aka RAZR 2, aka RAZR K1 -- you might shuffle on over to the FCC's site and have a look-see. All the good stuff on the GSM variant has gone live, with unfettered access to external and internal pics plus

Field report tidbits from Engadget's mobile insider, the Boy Genius.Well, well, well, Moto had to name the Canary something, didn't they?

We've seen Motorola's RAZR sequel, the Canary, pop up here and there, but it took our boys at Engadget Mobile, with a little help from Boy Genius, to do it up right and get some serious shots of all that shiny blueness. Head on over for a whole slew of pics, but try not to get too jealous -- they

That's right, suckas: we got our hands on a Canary (aka the RAZR 2), Motorola's still-unannounced follow-up to the RAZR. We only got to spend a few precious hours with the Canary, but we can confirm that this phone's glossy surface is indeed a magnet for fingerprints (and is a pain to photograph). O

This thing just gets prettier and prettier every time we see it. We don't have any solid deets on specs for Canary, the RAZR's heir apparent, but the rampant speculation mill currently has her getting a 2 megapixel shooter, 17 measly megabytes of internal storage, a MicroSD slot, and the
