Moto KRZR and RIZR 3G Leak

Updated versions of Motorola's distinctive KRZR clamshell and RIZR slider phones with faster wireless are due to be announced soon, according to telltale product images leaked in an investor document (PDF). Both the KRZR K3 (left) and RIZR Z8 (right) share the addition of a front-facing video camera, a frequent prerequisite for cameras using the faster Internet access provided by 3G wireless standards. The discovery did not point to a specific technology in use but is almost certainly set to involve HSDPA given the phones' existence on GSM networks.

The two 3G additions have not been given a release date but should see a public unveiling at next month's 3GSM expo in Barcelona. Availability in the US will depend on the addition of a quad-band GSM radio, which has not been confirmed. Click through for larger photos.
