Well, Motorola’s RAZR line has been out for quite some time, but it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Just today Motorola announced a series of RAZR models and now, it has just been confirmed that the new RAZR V3i will be ROKR-enabled and have iTunes support, playing music purchased directly from Apple’s online store. Other upgrades include a 1.23 megapixel camera (instead of the pathetic 0.3 megapixel) with 8x digital zoom. As with other current Motorola models, the RAZR V3i is compatible with TransFlash memory cards.
The ROKR E1, which was released earlier this year, has been met with limited success, and most cell phone enthusiasts blame the cheap “dopey-looking” candybar design. Mating the ever-popular iTunes program from Apple with the sleek RAZR design might be exactly the right kick in the pants Motorola needs to promote its ROKR technology.
