"Corrects a big Razr blunder"4.0 starson by francissawyer
Pros: Side buttons on the BASE, not the screen
Cons: No doubt it'll be GSM-only; Verizon customers hosed
Summary: Obviously this thing isn't out yet, but already from the pictures you can see that it corrects a major defect in the earlier Razr design: the side buttons. The current Razrs inexplicably have the important side buttons on the wrong half of the phone, up by the screen. WHAT? Who holds the phone by its screen? They had the buttons right 10 years ago on the StarTac!
Both the Pebl and Razr V3x correct this dumb move.
This and the Pebl may finally provide a worthy successor to the StarTac, since the StarTac 2004 mysteriously never made its way to the U.S. It's just too bad that manufacturers continually ignore the CDMA (Verizon, Sprint, and South American) market and release one GSM-only phone after another.
