Motorola RIZR FCC Approved
Although most of the attention on Motorola's new phones has centered around the KRZR K1, recent documents show that the American cellphone designer will bring its equally style-focused RIZR Z3 to the US as well. A recent FCC filing provides evidence that the upcoming slider phone is almost ready to ship to US carriers. The RIZR shares several features with its flip-phone KRZR parallel, including a 2-megapixel camera, EDGE broadband, a microSD card slot, and an improved interface for elements such as the address book. Motorola has said that the RIZR should be released to cellphone service providers before the end of 2006 and will compare in price to the original cost of the RAZR.
