Sprint RAZR2 date, photos
Joining Verizon and Motorola itself, Sprint has issued photos and release plans for its version of the RAZR2. The company will, of course, use the CDMA-based V9m; sales should start online and by phone on August 22nd, while retail outlets will get the phone on September 4th. Through the EVDO-based Power Vision network, the phone will have access to several services, among them Sprint TV, which includes 50 channels split between live and on-demand programming. Complementing this will be Power View and NFL Mobile, the latter adding live information updates to its broadcasts.
Downloadable music will come through the Music Store, and GPS services will be handled through Sprint Navigation, with features such as voice guidance and real-time traffic warnings. Currently, Sprint has only announced one pricing scheme for the RAZR2: a two-year contract that brings the phone down to $249.
