• Motorola Officially Outs The RAZR i, Its First Intel-Powered Smartphone

    Motorola Officially Outs The RAZR i, Its First Intel-Powered Smartphone

    Intel’s mobile chipsets have popped up in a handful of devices over the past few months, but Motorola — arguably the biggest of Intel’s smartphone partners — has been content to keep quiet about the fruits of its efforts longer than others. Well, that wait is finally over. Motorola officially revealed the Intel-powered RAZR i at a (relatively brief) press event in… Read More

  • Hands-On With Motorola’s Razr HD And Razr Maxx HD: Beauty, Battery And Speed

    Hands-On With Motorola’s Razr HD And Razr Maxx HD: Beauty, Battery And Speed

    With the updated models of Motorola’s flagship phones, the company did not surprise us a lot. It did what it knows best: putting big batteries in Android phones so that you can enjoy long hours of 4G LTE use. A 4.7-inch display should raise some warning flags for those who like small phones. But the major argument behind Motorola’s line-up is that you don’t need an… Read More

  • Mix-Up Or Must-Buy Phone? Motorola May Reveal Smartphone With Edge-To-Edge Screen Next Week

    Mix-Up Or Must-Buy Phone? Motorola May Reveal Smartphone With Edge-To-Edge Screen Next Week

    Motorola is dead-set on showing off some new hardware at its New York press event next week, but could it have more up its sleeve than we all expected? A handful of leaks (accidental and otherwise) have already outed the Droid RAZR M and the long-awaited RAZR HD, but Bloomberg seems to have confirmed the existence of another new Motorola handset whose description doesn’t seem to match… Read More

  • Take A Peek At China’s Version Of The Motorola Droid RAZR

    Take A Peek At China’s Version Of The Motorola Droid RAZR

    The Droid RAZR has certainly been the talk of the the town lately, with its 7.1mm waist line, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and uniquely beautiful design. According to the leaks, the RAZR should be gracing shelves by November 10 both here in the States and in the UK. But what about China? Read More

  • Motorola’s Droid RAZR (Or Something Like It) Likely Headed For AT&T Soon

    Motorola’s Droid RAZR (Or Something Like It) Likely Headed For AT&T Soon

    Sorry, Verizon: looks like your exclusivity on the Motorola Droid RAZR might not last all that long. Based on the finer details of some docs pulled fresh from the good ol’ FCC, it looks like AT&T might be getting a RAZR of their very own. Read More

  • Hands-On With The Verizon Droid RAZR By Motorola

    Hands-On With The Verizon Droid RAZR By Motorola

    After the hot mess that was the Droid Bionic Saga (Delay! Delay! Delay! Screw it, release garbage.), I didn’t think I could ever like another Motorola device again. Guess I was wrong. I just spent a bit of time with the just announced Droid RAZR, and, at least at first glance, it is… surprisingly great. Dive in for my first impressions, won’t you? Read More

  • Motorola Hints At October 18 Debut For The Spyder (Or Droid RAZR)

    Motorola Hints At October 18 Debut For The Spyder (Or Droid RAZR)

    Samsung and Google got some considerable mileage out of their Nexus teaser video, and Motorola apparently wants to join in on the fun. Their own mysterious video went live earlier today, and hints pretty strongly at some impressive hardware due to be unveiled soon. As with most teaser videos, Motorola’s latest is heavy on imagery but light on detail. In between the images of fast cars and… Read More

  • The "Verizon iPhone" Versus "The iPhone On Verizon's Network"

    The "Verizon iPhone" Versus "The iPhone On Verizon's Network"

    If you think back to 2005, you’ll remember that the Motorola RAZR phone was all the rage. Not entirely unlike the iPhone today, it was the sleek phone that everyone wanted. But if you happened to be on the largest carrier in the U.S., Verizon, you couldn’t get one. Again, sound familiar? It wasn’t until just about a year later that a version (the V3c) finally came to Verizon. Read More

  • The iPhone Is Now the Best Selling Phone In the U.S.

    When the economy takes a hit, so do cell phone sales. Last quarter, mobile phone sales in the U.S. dropped 15 percent to 32 million units, according to market research firm NPD Group. But in hard times, the strongest brands also take share. And that is exactly what Apple did. The 6.9 million iPhones it sold last quarter catapulted the $200 device into the top spot among all cell phones… Read More

  • Motorola AURA gets poked, prodded, and photographed

    The up-scale AURA might be Motorola’s last attempt to remain relevant in a post-RAZR mobile world and yet the dudes at Mobile Review got their grubby hands on the $2k cell phone. It sounds like they were impressed with the build quality and the round LCD, but Moto might have dropped the ball on the GUI by simply reworking a standard square LCD menu rather than, you know… Read More

  • Shock report: One-quarter of iPhone users switched from a Razr

    Flickr’d Several people on the “Internet” are making a big deal out of recently released numbers from J.D. Power and Associates that shows nearly one-quarter of Motorola Razr users switched to the iPhone. I don’t know what’s so surprising about that. If people had gotten the Razr in 2005, when it was popular (I swear, every two-bit jerk had one at my school; I… Read More

  • Unreasonable Stance: The iPhone is no better than a Motorola RAZR

    It’s been a few months since the iPhone first graced the world stage and I’ve owned mine since September, entering the fray only after the price drop made it worth picking up. So here we are, holidays upon us, and the iPhone — actually, probably the Touch — promising to be a big seller for the 16-to-95 set. Well, friends, I’m going to make a case against the iPhone.

  • Motorola RAZR 2 V9m Quick Look

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf A quick look at Sprint’s new RAZR 2 V9m. Full review to follow. Cool little phone — not quite Zander’s folly but it’s no iPhone. Read More

  • Nicholas Deleon, Live From Japan For Some Reason

    The last RAZR in Japan. Act now! Buenos días, readers. For reasons I can’t get into just quite yet, I’m currently in Tokyo which, it turns out, is unmercifully far from New York. While I’m here, I’ll be on the lookout for all the high-tech gems that I’ve read and written about over the years. The funny thing about Japan is that the people here love fish. Read More

  • 10 Days of CrunchGear: Red Motorola RAZR from Sprint

    Do you have a janky old phone? Take a picture of it and send it to contest@crunchgear.com with the subject line “RED RAZR.” We’ll pick one winner at random to receive this hot Red RAZR from Sprint — sorry, no service included. Read on for specs. Read More

  • WildCharger Charges Wirelessly

    WildCharge has finally gotten its act together and the first wireless charging station, the RAZR, will be released this month. It’s a fairly strange design, but I guess the ‘wireless’ charging aspect is cool? It actually sounds like a complicated progress and I’m not so sure it’s worth the $89.99 you’d be shelling out. If you’re feeling adventurous… Read More

  • Motorola RIZR Z9 Leaked

    Check out this fancy new slider from Motorola. The handset sports styling reminiscent of the Razr 2, 3G data, 2MP camera, and expandability in the form of a microSD card. Although the phone already looks very stylish it is a prototype model so expect revisions in the future. All AT&T branding, so maybe this thing will take over for the iPhone hype in the next few months. Or maybe… Read More

  • The Futurist: We Predict the iPhone Will Bomb

    Until June 29, it’s hard to tell too much about the iPhone, but I can tell you with near-certainty one thing: the product was almost certainly rushed to market before Apple’s engineers would have liked. At MacWorld, Jobs said: “We’re shipping them in June”. Had the phone release date been set in July or August, the entire tech world’s collective red flag… Read More

  • The Futurist: Where All These Cell Phone Names Are Taking Us

    Mark this down in the “Obvious” bin: more and more cell phones are using real names in recent years. It was only a few years ago that virtually every cell phone was identified by a serial number-esque stream of numbers and letters that, while I’m sure they made plenty of sense to a company’s on-hand staff of engineers and marketing pros, were more likely to leave… Read More

  • AT&T Gets Gold RAZR V3xx Sans D&G

    For once T-Mobile users will have an EDGE (that was SO funny) on AT&T users. AT&T is getting the Motorola RAZR V3xx in gold without the D&G. Yup, you’ll be getting a seriously played out RAZR that’s gold and is exactly the same at T-Mo’s D&G RAZR – except there’s no D&G content anywhere. I can see it now: Guy 1: ::pulls out gold RAZR at party::
