Until GPS phones become commonplace, it will still be necessary to carry two devices if you want both capabilities. So Motorola apparently figures it will try to cash in on this inconvenience while it can, offering its T815 navigation device to work with your smartphone. Gizmodo says it puts maps on your phone and spits out directions, though it appears to be designed more for the car than for your pocket. We're going to hold out for a combo phone--with our luck, one of our kids would grab this thinking it was one of their hockey pucks.
We knew it was coming, we just didn't know when. But as of today Cingular Wireless customers finally can get their hands on one of Motorola's sexiest thin phone, the Krzr K1. Though the CDMA Krzr K1m has been out with Sprint, Verizon Wireless, Alltel, and U.S. Cellular for several months, GSM fans have had to wait on the sidelines for a phone that clearly outshines the popular Razr when it comes to design.
The Krzr K1 comes in an attractive blue skin and offers a 2-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, a digital music player, and a memory … Read more
And here you thought the Apple/Motorola marriage was no more. If you're frothing at the mouth for Apple's iPhone and can't wait until June to get your fix, there is a way (for the moment at least) to get a taste of what's to come. Macsupport is linking to a download for Motorola Razrs that installs a skin of the iPhone menu interface for the phone's display. Granted, it won't magically turn your Razr into an iPhone but if you want that Apple taste for a few months, it may just do the … Read more
We get it. Luxury cars are branching out into more affordable gadgets with their brand names attached to them.
Now add a Ferrari phone to that long list.
The Motorazr Maxx V6 Ferrari Challenge Mobile Phone is available at the Ferrari store online for $524. The multi-ban GSM phone with GPRS and EDGE … Read more
Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and there may be a few red cell phones out there for you to give your loved one on that special day (or that commercialized, overhyped holiday, depending on your point of view).
Cingular/AT&T launched the Samsung Sync in red earlier this month, and we've heard that Verizon will launch not one but two red phones soon. According to the My:Tech News Blog, a red Motorola Krzr K1m (dubbed the Krzr Fire) and a red LG Chocolate (dubbed the Strawberry Chocolate) have appeared on Verizon's "testman" Web site, … Read more
We mentioned earlier this month that Cingular/AT&T was going to update its 3.5G HSDPA phone lineup with the much-awaited Motorola Razr V3xx. Well the time has come because the carrier just launched the Razr V3xx today, and even more details of the phone have been released. The most notable of which is that the Razr V3xx will be Cingular's first 3.6 Mbps HSDPA handset. Previous HSDPA phones from Cingular (like the LG CU500) were capped out at 1.8 Mbps due to network limitations, but the company is planning to increase the network's … Read more
We know the HSDPA Motorola Razr V3xx is coming to AT&T/Cingular but we still haven't heard anything regarding U.S. carrier availability on the equally powerful Motorola Razr Maxx. And that's too bad as the Razr Maxx promises to be the most appealing Razr to date.
But now it appears we may get our wish, just in a different form. Howard Forums has published marketing photos of a promised EV-DO variant of the phone, the Maxx Ve for Verizon Wireless. Details are sketchy at this point but it's rumored the Maxx Ve will offer … Read more
If you ride your bike to and from work every day anyway, why not charge your phone at the same time? That's the premise behind this cell phone docking station from Motorola that mounts on top of a bicycle. Let your pedals power up your phone battery phone as you swerve around dodging cars and pedestrians. Not only will you save time, you'll help the environment too. Too bad we can't figure out if this will be available here and at what price, but it's a neat concept all the same. Just don't take any … Read more
Motorola remains hard at work pumping out new models from its big, thin-phone machine. Pictures of updated versions of the Krzr and Rizr trickled into the blogosphere yesterday, after Moto showed the phones to company investors. Both the Krzr K3 and the Rizr Z8 should feature all the goodies of the existing models but add 3G support as well. No word on availability, but stay tuned.
As some of you phone fanatics may know, the 3GSM World Congress is coming up soon in Barcelona, Spain (unfortunately, Crave won't be there in person sipping on Spanish wine along Las Ramblas, err, I mean, to cover the event). The annual conference brings together the cell phone industry to discuss and showcase the latest 3G technologies and developments, and in recent years, it has also served as backdrop to some pretty cool product announcements. Now, based on some blogosphere rumblings, it looks like this year won't be any different. According to Engadget Mobile, Motorola is prepping to … Read more
