Motorola KRZR at Cingular
Cellphone provider Cingular (soon to become AT&T) today officially carried its version of the Motorola KRZR. The introduction marks the first time the phone has been available in GSM form, having shipped in the CDMA-oriented K1m edition for Alltel, Sprint, and Verizon late last year. The Cingular-branded version ships with support for the carrier's EDGE Internet access and comes preloaded with instant messaging software for chatting on AIM, MSN, and Yahoo networks. All the functionality of the Motorola original remains in place, including the 2-megapixel camera and Bluetooth with A2DP support for wireless headphones and speakers. Cingular sells the KRZR today for $450 as a stand-alone purchase but reduces the initial price to $200 when paired with a two-year contract and $50 rebate.
