Moto RIZR at Oscars
Motorola today revealed that it would introduce its RIZR Z3 at the Oscars next month in the form of a special gift. The top 25 nominees in the highest-profile categories will receive the handset in a unique box meant to recall the traditional actor's dressing room door, complete with a personalized nametag; each phone will also come with Motorola's H800 Bluetooth headset as well as its S9 sports headphones.
No wider availability of the RIZR was revealed during the announcement. An imminent launch is likely given the phone's FCC approval in October. The RIZR is largely considered a slider equivalent to the KRZR and has the same 2-megapixel camera and EDGE broadband support of the GSM-based clamshell.
