Moto RAZR2 V9 at ATT
AT&T today became the third US provider to begin carrying the RAZR2, this time offering the device in its V9 form with 3G Internet access over the provider's HSDPA network. The AT&T version is also the only American version to ship in the RAZR2's unique metallic red and runs on Motorola's Synergy interface rather than the Linux-based JUIX shell used for the 2G, EDGE-only RAZR2 V8. Virtually all features are intact from the 2-megapixel cameraphone, including stereo Bluetooth.
The device should be available online and in stores later today, and will command a premium for its speed over competitors with prices starting at $300 with a two-year contract versus the $250 of Sprint and Verizon V9m models; opting for a contract-free model will cost $450. AT&T has yet to indicate whether it will bundle the RAZR2 with a microSD card or other bundles similar to Sprint's model.
