Moto RAZR2 Reaches Verizon

Verizon on Friday officially became the first North American carrier to release the RAZR2. The CDMA-based V9m that Verizon will use lets the provider offer multiple 3G Internet features, ranging from downloads for the V CAST music store to assisted GPS through the carrier's VZ Navigator service. Verizon also promises to allow instant messaging and video streaming but has not provided full details.

Most all hardware features are unlocked and similar to the V8 and V9 that will ultimately reach Verizon's rivals. The large external LCD with touch controls, 2-megapixel camera, multi-format music and video support, and stereo Bluetooth audio have been untouched in the shipping version. Verizon will set the reference point for other carrier launches when it ships its gunmetal gray RAZR2 in September, when it will be available for $300 with a two-year contract.
