Verizon KRZR Official
Cellphone carrier Verizon had tipped its hand early on its use of the Motorola KRZR K1m by posting an instructional guide in advance, but left the actual release open to speculation. In practice, the delay has been short. Verizon today began taking orders for the KRZR K1m through its website. The music-oriented successor to the RAZR is narrower, has an enhanced 1.3-megapixel camera, and music controls on the outer shell to simplify pausing or skipping tracks. Verizon in particular is tying the phone closely to its VCast music and video download services. KRZR orders are being limited to online visitors only until October 5th; retail stores will start carrying the phone soon afterwards. Prices start at $250 with a one-year contract.
