Moto V9x ships to AT&T

Motorola has quietly began shipping its V9x RAZR2 clamshell to AT&T stores, though the handset is not offered on the wireless carrier's website. The handset differs from the currently available V9 in two key ways, most noticeably the black color instead of mahogany and the inclusion of GPS functionality via AT&T's Navigator service. The GPS directions can be delivered either via the large internal screen or the smaller external display, albeit with less detail. Motorola and its competitors are adding GPS functionality to more affordable, non-PDA phones.

The V9x RAZR2 is expected to share other specs with the V9, including quad-band GSM support, a 2-megapixel camera and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. Onboard memory is fixed at 45MB, while a microSD card slot expands the available storage space. Either can be used to store AAC, MIDI, MP3 and WAV format music, or H263, MPEG, Real and WMV format videos.

Pricing information for the V9x RAZR2 is not known, though it should be similar or slightly higher than the V9's $200 price after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract. [via Unwired View]
