    Motorola A910 Gets FCC High Five

    Good news for those of you are beyond sick of Motorola’s crappy OS: Moto’s A910 won’t come with it. The FCC approved Motorola’s new Linux-based A910 cellphone for use on GSM networks. Features you ask? Oh there are plenty of them. The A910 comes packed with GPRS and UMA for connecting over WLAN networks, a new Linux-Java based platform, 1.3-megapixel camera with external… Read More

  • The KRZR, The KRZR, The KRZR's On Fire!

    The KRZR, The KRZR, The KRZR's On Fire!

    Ouch! I almost burned my hand typing up this post. You see, the KRZR is so hot, that Motorola just had to introduce a new color that could capture the heat. So behold the creatively titled KRZR Fire. This guy comes with a delicious red paint job that reminds me of a fire engine mixed with some holiday cheer. Not only is it bright red on the outside, but also the color drips into the cracks on the… Read More

  • Another Day, Another RAZR

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/HSDPA model headed to Cingular. It just cleared the FCC, so it's now only a matter of time. Moto was nice enough to favor this RAZR with a 1.3-megapixel camera, microSD, stereo Bluetooth, and dual cameras for video calls, so you can pretend you're on G.I. Joe while looking even lamer because you bought a RAZR. Read More

    Motorola’s ic502 Drops On Sprint, Looks Like a Bumble Bee

    If you’re one of the awesome Sprint/Nextel users out there, boy do we have a treat in store for you. The ic502 from Motorola has been released for Sprint and is the first phone for the network that supports both iDEN (Nextel) and CDMA (Sprint) frequencies. This means you can use it with Sprint, Nextel, or Verizon (if you really want it that badly). It’s kind of a lame phone though, as… Read More

  • Sprint Gets a SLVR, Calls it MOTOSLVR

    Sprint and Motorola seem to be new friends, as the carrier is now selling Motorola’s popular SLVR under the MOTOSLVR name. The SLVR is Moto’s RAZRed-up candybar phone, with a VGA camera, Bluetooth, and MicroSD. The slim phone also supports Sprint’s TV service, but will anyone watch it on such a small screen? We doubt it. Just yesterday Sprint launched its version of the… Read More

  • Sprint Gets KRZY, Too

    , Sprint today has officially made the Motorola KRZR available to its subscribers. For those two of you not in-the-know, the KRZR is Motorola’s sequel to the pervasive and slender RAZR.

Like its Verizon brother, the KRZR (which Sprint is calling the MOTOKRZR) sports… Read More

  • Sprint Gets Its Own RAZR V3m

We’re sick and tired of the RAZR and its many varying forms, so anything sleek, stylish, and Moto to replace it, we’re all… Read More

  • Moto's Touchscreen, Linux-Based ROKR E6 Clears FCC, Excites Fanboys

    Another day, another slick Moto phone, right?. Sorta. This candy bar Moto is more likely than most to get the fan boys frothing, as it’s totally different, but kinda the same, as the phones Moto has been turning out lately. It’s similar in that it’s called the ROKR E6, which means it will be a music phone (and it will ROCK). Its looks are very RAZR-esque, right down to the laser… Read More

This could either be a render from some wishful thinker, or an actual leaked render from somewhere in the bowels of Motorola HQ. We're thinking it's the former, since the render isn't even all that good. And if it really is from… Read More

  • Motorola Q Pro, Back in Black

    The Motorola Q was the brief-but-exciting sweetheart of the Windows Mobile world but a few months ago. Affordable, with a slick Treo-meets-RAZR form factor, it made smartphones sexy for the first time in awhile. But it’s been lamented for being stale, with other contenders improving on Moto’s design while Moto just stands there. But the Motorola people are upgrading the Q. The “Q… Read More

  • iPhone, Shmy-Phone: The Rumor Roundup

    It doesn’t even exist and I’m already tired of it. Due to some creative code reading of the Apple iTunes 7.0.1 update release it has been concluded that there may or may not be an Apple-brand phone on the way. Also, there’s word of a Cingular and Apple agreement for a new phone, making Cingular the sole carrier through mid-2007. Here’s a quick recap from some of the random… Read More
