Motorola launches candybar RAZR L6
Everyone can appreciate the sleek appeal of Motorola’s RAZR line of mobile phones, and now the company has added a candybar version to further broaden its appeal. The L6 has been launched for the Indian market and is targeted at emerging markets. Sure, there are a few variations of the RAZR out there already—like the V3i or V3x—but outside of a choice between black or silver, the aesthetic differences are minimal. With the L6, Motorola has tried to tap into a consumer base that favours a candybar design over a clamshell.
Like its flip-phone counterparts, the L6 is loaded with features, from MP3 ringtones to Bluetooth connectivity to Push-to-Talk functionality. This super-slim is also, of course, multimedia ready with its integrated VGA camera with video capture and playback. You can create personal multimedia photo albums, and use the pictures you took for the built-in picture caller ID function as well.
It’s unclear whether the L6 will ever find its way into the North American market, and one would suspect that prospect will be heavily influenced by its success (or failure) in other markets.
