We're going to confess a dirty little secret here: when we first started playing with the VE20, we didn't realize it was being branded and marketed as a RAZR. As we used it, though, it quickly became evident -- no one had to tell us this was a kindred spirit of the V3. For better or worse, the shap...

Grab your Kleenex, folks, because we've heard today that a couple of seemingly timeless pillars in AT&T's lineup might be breathing their last few breaths of in-store air. First up, the Pearl 8100 is due for replacement on all the networks that still offer it, with the 8110 and 8120 models taki...

Alright, Motorola faithful, listen up: AT&T's got a few goodies in store for you. Nothing we didn't already know about, really, but in light of the recent upheaval, it's a little reassuring to hear that stuff is still on track. It turns out that the Z9 -- a phone we heard about merely once befor...

Yeah, it's already on sale in South Korea, we know -- but still, there's something that warms our hearts about seeing an in-the-wild shot of a hot new phone with a sticker price proudly displayed right below it. This example comes from Hong Kong, where the V8 (GSM plus EDGE only, no 3G) rendition o...

Feeling cheritable? So are we, so this should work out swimmingly. Motorola's red MOTORAZR V3m was created in collaboration with (PRODUCT) RED to help fight AIDS in Africa -- and, coincidentally, to help fight boring-looking cellphones with a bright red shell that you're not likely to miss. It's of...

Let's see, do we have enough RAZR colors to make a full spectrum now? Red, check. Orange? Yep, there was a "pumpkin orange" V3x back in the day. Yellow, eh, we suppose the D&G model counts for that. Green, you betcha. Blue, yep. Indigo / violet, well -- now's your time to shine. Apparently put...

We knew that today was the day, now sho'nuff Motorola's MOTORAZR maxx Ve is up and jumpin' on Verizon. A two year contract nabs $199.99 (after $50 on-line discount) worth of touch-sensitive controls, 2 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and the option to lap up all the V CAST music and video you ca...

The color, that is; not the metal. AT&T has officially released the 3G RAZR variant in "platinum," which we think is code for "silver." Specs are pretty much the same as the charcoal and gold versions before it, though this will be the first color to sport full AT&T branding inside and out...

The partnership betwixt Motorola and Dolce & Gabbana must be proving fruitful, because NTT DoCoMo customers are the latest to get hooked up. The D&G-branded version of the M702iS rehashes the same bleeping RAZR formula, but changes out some of the less flashy bits for... well, flashy ones:...

Verizon's finally fessed up to a couple hotly-anticipated handsets that've been kicking around in rumorland for some months now: the MOTORAZR maxx Ve from Motorola and LG's VX8700. The maxx Ve is the CDMA rendition of the V6 maxx for GSM networks, offering a 2 megapixel cam, touch sensitive control...

If there's one thing AT&T's 3G offerings have lacked thus far, it's been a gaudy overabundance of yellow metal. Well, problem solved. The midrange V3xx has been re-rendered in a lovely gold shade, decidedly more flashy than the original gunmetal gray variant. Features carry over, meaning we ge...
