iPod nano, Motorola RAZR to go Red for charity [U]

Red RAZR and iPod nano

[Updated with real photo] Friday will mark the introduction of multiple handheld devices colored red in support of PRODUCT RED, a charity initiated by DATA chairman Bobby Shriver and U2 singer Bono to promote the fight against AIDS in Africa. One of these will be a red version of Motorola's RAZR, the by now omnipresent slim flip-phone. The US carrier Sprint is expected to sell the special color handset to its subscribers for $289 without a contract, with a portion of the profits earmarked for the charity. Features will otherwise be unchanged from Sprint's version of the same device. Shipments will begin in November.

Also slated to appear tomorrow is a red iPod nano, according to AppleInsider. Though Apple seldom produces charity-related products, the company has agreed to donate $10 for every 4GB iPod given the special color without changing the existing $199 price. The new version is expected to debut on The Oprah Winfrey Show as part of a Bono guest appearance. Click through for a real photo of the iPod as well as the RAZR.
