V3x: Motorola’s 3G RAZR: More Details

Motorola's 3G RAZR V3x: More DetailsMotorola have offered more details about their forthcoming 3G RAZR V3x slim flip phone.

Surprisingly not as slender as the hugely popular original RAZR, the new V3x packs in dual cameras, a hefty two megapixel camera with an 8x zoom and macro mode for photography, and a VGA camera for 2-way video calling.

The sleek housing has fattened up a bit to accommodate the 3G gubbins, and comes with two vivid colour displays.

The handset will include a new service called SCREEN3 giving users “zero-click access” to news, sports, entertainment, and other premium content on the go, providing a handy source of revenue for mobile operators.
