Moto World Phones CTIA 2K7

Following the news of its updated RAZR and ROKR phones, Motorola today has also announced several clamshell phones aimed at a world audience. The CDMA models are headlined by the W385 (pictured): the design takes the KRZR's shape to a wider group with a more affordable VGA camera and without the EDGE or EVDO Internet access that frequently adds to the price. In return, it gains GPS to help navigate on a walk or a road trip. The other CDMA-based device, the W355 shifts the focus to music with an FM radio and a loud speakerphone.

Both devices are set to ship during the spring. Click through for details of Motorola's GSM phones, including a gallery of selected models.

Appealing to other parts of the world are four new GSM phones, all of which boast a camera and FM radio. The W395 and W380 are both flip phones with 1.3-megapixel and VGA-resolution cameras respectively; the W360 and W218 candybar phones vary primarily on style, with the W218 in particular recalling the brushed metal look of the SLVR. The W395 and W380 will ship in the summer to global carriers, while the more basic W360 and W218 arrive in the spring.
