MOTORAZR MAXX
Motorola announces four new phones and two new headsets

Motorola launched a bevy of new products yesterday to expand its mobile phone range. The company announced the MOTORAZR MAXX, MOTORIZR, MOTOKRZR K1m and MOTOKRZR K1 phones along with the H601 and H800 Bluetooth 2.0 headsets.

The MOTORAZR MAXX brings 3G to the forefront with 3.6Mbps HSDPA and EDGE support. Users can also experience 2-way video calling at up to 15FPS thanks to the high speed wireless connection. As for the phone itself, it weighs 3.7 ounces and is 0.6" thick. It features a 2.2" 256k color screen and backlit keys. Motorola is also kind enough to include 50MB of dedicated storage, a 2MP camera with 8x digital zoom, microSD memory card slot, and the requisite Bluetooth 2.0+EDR capabilities.

The MOTORIZR brings an impressive "slider" design to Motorola's high-end mobile handset family. The MOTORIZR is a Quad-Band (GPRS/EDGE) handset, features a 1.9" (172x220) 256k color screen, 2.0MP camera and supports Bluetooth. It doubles a portable music jukebox with support for MP3, AAC, AAC+, and AAC+ Enhanced and can be paired with an optional stereo Bluetooth headset. 20MB of internal storage is included.

Next up is the slim and sleek MOTOKRZR K1m. The MOTOKRZR K1m features a traditional clamshell design and gives users a 1.9" color screen, 1.3MP camera with MPEG4 video capabilities, Bluetooth, microSD memory slot and GPS capabilities. The MOTOKRZR K1 ups the ante by adding a 2MP camera with 8x zoom, integrated MP3 player, EDGE support and Push-To-View image sharing capabilities.

Finally, Motorola has announced two new Bluetooth headsets: the HS601 and HS800. The HS601 features Bluetooth 2.0+EDR technology and provides 8 hours of talk time (8 days standby). It also features EasyPair technology for quick setup with a Bluetooth enabled phone. The HS800 brings "slider" functionality to the headset market (slide open to turn on, close to turn off) and is also the first headset to feature RapidConnect technology for instantaneous connections. The HS800 can provide up to 6 hours of talk time (8 days standby).

All of Motorola’s new products are expected to be available in the second half of 2006.

RAZR

My Big issue with the RAZR is the difficulty to see the keypad when text messaging. When the back light is on, its no problem, but otherwise in certain light, it is very difficult to read what numbers/letter are on which keys. Also, Motos interface/menu system is a bit whacked. For example, it takes 6+ steps to turn bluetooth on and off, which drains the battery signifigantly faster if left on

Just setup a shortcut, you can turn it on/off w/ 2 button clicks.
