  • 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

  • Motorola Q 9m Review


    Motorola is in a bad way. Wilson over at Giz basically tore them a new orifice over the Q 9m and I have always thought they’ve squandered the RAZR good-will on a series of odd products that were either violently crippled or ahead of their time — like the Moto PEBL, for example. That said, they’ve remained in high in the pantheon of phone gods that I have in my heads, up… Read More

  • Verizon's Motorola Q 9m: First Look


    They’re doing it again. After years of disappointing phones, I can honestly say that I’m excited about the Moto Q 9m. This phone, aimed at the youth market, is primarily a music phone and takes advantage of Verizon’s V Cast music service (*cough $1.99 for tracks cough* WTF? *ahem*) in a package that is far removed from the original Q.

  • Exclusive: CrunchGear Sneaks a Hands-On with Motorola Q9h

    Yours truly likes Seattle. There are many, many people running around our assorted bars with many, many gadgets that are rumored or upcoming or even ones we think don’t actually exist. This weekend afforded me the chance to play with one such gadget, the Motorola Q9 variant due for AT&T. Read More

  • Motorola Throwing Up Cryptic Posters Around NYC


    GEE, WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY MEAN? Nicholas and I were on our way to some bar/event yesterday when we noticed this poster conveniently plastered next to a Paul van Dyk flyer. Seems Motorola is really gearing up for a big promotion involving something with the number 2. Oh my! Because we’re not retarded, we concluded it was related to the RAZR 2 and wandered off to get drunk. Hours later… 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

  • Moto RAZR2 Debuts On Verizon Wireless: Such A Powerful LCD

    The much-hyped Motorola RAZR2 debuts on Verizon Wireless today. It will come with all the focus group-tested VZW features that I never use like V-Cast music downloads and VZ Navigator GPS. So the service is as you’d expect from Verizon. Here that means the best call quality out of all the major carriers, but you do have to put up with VZW’s habit of crippling phones. Read More

  • Motorola Launches Mobile Linux Platform, Begs for Spare Change Near the I96 Interchange

    After viewing Moto’s line-up this year — and playing with a number of Nokias, S-Es, and the iPhone, — I feel that Moto could put a singing puppy in every RAZR2 box and I’d still be disappointed. So, it is with a jaded sigh I announce Motorola’s new Linux platform, MOTOMAGX. That’s right. MAGX. Read More

  • Sprint Adding Motorola RAZR 2 Next Month

    According to BGR’s anonymous tipster, Sprint will be unveiling the RAZR2 V9m sometime next month. Specs remain the same, but something that jumps right out is the 3 hours of talk time in digital mode. Hmmm. That’s not a whole lot of time, Motorola. Services supported will include Sprint TV, Music Store, Picture Mail, Video Mail, a NFL Mobile app, On Demand, Wireless Backup and… Read More

  • Motorola Zante Pics Surface

    Do you remember the episode of The Simpsons where Moe opens up ‘Uncle Moe’s Family Feedbag’? The impending release of the Motorola Zante aka Sidekick Slide gives me the same false impression of reality. Moe is still an old crotchety man regardless of the revamped restaurant and gimmick. No offense to Motorola, but they’re a year and a half too late to this party. I sort… Read More

  • Motorola, BlackBerry and AT&T Device Launch Dates Revealed

    BGR strikes again with hot news regarding the launch dates for the Moto RAZR 2, Q9, BlackBerry 8820, Pantech C810 and the AT&T SMT5700. Having seen both the RAZR 2 and Q9 in person, I can say they’re well worth the wait. The duo from Motorola will launch August 24. The Pantech C810 won’t be out till September 9th and BlackBerry 8820 is slated for mid-August, around the 13th… Read More

  • Nokia Cooler Than Motorola, My Mom


    BusinessWeek has a fairly long article about the magic of Nokia. The lede is actually pretty cool: Pop singer Alicia Keys and Ramkishen Pyarelal, proprieter of a Mumbai tea stall, may not have a lot in common. But they both carry Nokia mobile phones. That basically sums up Nokia in a few words. Nokia has always known its market. It sells the low-end and the high-end and essentially keeps… Read More

  • Motorola Road Trippin'

    Other than camping what else is there to do during the summer? Road trip, anyone? Awww yeah! In anticipation of the 115 million road trippers hitting the streets this summer, Motorola has launched Motorola Road Trips where you can go to chat, update and blog about your latest trek. This is where you can also find resources on how to use that handset or Bluetooth device to show the parents or… Read More

  • Motorola Zante aka Sidekick Slide In The Wild

    There you have it, folks. The Motorola Zante/Sidekick Slide in the wild. Does it make you randy, baby? I think I’m officially done with you, Sidekick. Hello Zante. Hello Sidekick Slide [BGR] Read More

  • NES Controller Turned SLVR Case


    Yeah. Chicks are gonna love it. Old school NES controllers can take a beating. I remember playing the living hell out of Contra and Super C trying to beat them for hours on end, only to find myself throwing an NES controller as hard as I could on the floor. Seems this gentleman with the goofy burger hat had the same revelation and decided to turn the obsolete controller into a sturdy… 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

  • Motorola Zante aka Sidekick Slide aka Sucks

    Gizmodo has the scoop on the latest Sidekick, but there are a few glaring indicators that this could all be a sham. Let’s see if you can spot them. If this is all true and accurate then I hate to say it, but the latest Sidekick does absolutely nothing for me and I’m sure it won’t do much for you either. Sure, the outside is all shiny and sleek looking with a black and… Read More

  • myCharger Powers Your iPhone, iPod and Other Mobile Phones

    Traveling tech geeks will understand the anguish I go through when I travel with all my gadgets. It’s bad enough that I travel around with three phones, a laptop, an iPod and digital camera, but add the chargers for all that and it ends up being a complete clusterf*ck and the few extra pounds make a big difference. The Tekkeon myCharger might not reduce the weight and clutter altogether… Read More
