Moto RAZR2 V9 at FCC
Motorola's RAZR2 V9 will be available soon through AT&T, a newly public FCC filing shows. The publication includes a copy of the phone's manual and explicitly reveals that the American carrier will both include the new RAZR in its lineup and market it as an entertainment device, packaging the phone with support for downloading streaming Internet music and video over the provider's HSDPA-based 3G wireless network. Owners will also have access to buying content through AT&T's store.
No cosmetic or technical changes appear to have been made to the original Motorola design, which comes in a metallic red with a 2-megapixel camera, 2-inch external touch display, and extensive support for music and video formats (including AAC and MPEG-4) loaded on to a microSD card up to 2GB in size. As with most FCC documents, the texts will not confirm a release date but were filed in mid-May, suggesting that Motorola will meet its target of shipping the phone in the US by the end of the summer.
