Motorola announces the next RAZR - the KRZR


Motorola finally announced RAZR's successors – MotoKRZR K1 and K1m, being respectively the GSM and CDMA versions.
The K1 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE phone with 2 megapixel camera and 262k color 176x220 display. The handset also features microSD memory card slot, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP stereo profile support.


There are two K1m versions – one for the American and the other for the Asian market. Overall the CDMA and the GSM MotoKRZRs look alike, but their specifications differ. First of all the two CDMA phones are slightly wider than the GSM one. Also, they both feature music control buttons on the outside of the flip, which are not present on the GSM version. These are simple touch sensor buttons, like the ones used in the LG Chocolate.

The Asian version of the K1m features a 240x320 pixel display - bigger than the other two. Moreover, the American K1m's display is only 65k color one and the camera's resolution is 1.3 megapixels. The two CDMA versions also support different data technologies, as the American is using the 1xRTT/EV-DO and the Asian - only 1xRTT. Both CDMA versions lack the A2DP Bluetooth profile.


The KRZR K1 and K1m are expected to be launched by the end of the year, probably at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
