Handsome New Phone by Motorola Is Skinny, Sleek -- and Expensive

Cellphones have gotten smaller and smaller over the years, and they
are crammed with more "features" than most people will ever use. But,
in general, their designs have been uninspired.

There hasn't been an iconic cellphone to rival such triumphs as the
iPod music player, the classic Palm V organizer, or even some of the
most beautiful digital cameras.

But I've been testing a gorgeous new cellphone that sets a new design
standard. It's the thinnest, sleekest flip phone I've ever seen, yet
it doesn't compromise on features. And it comes from Motorola, a
company that, until recently, seemed lost in the digital woods, unable
to compete with the likes of Nokia and Samsung.

This bold new phone is called the RAZR V3, although it is known among
cellphone devotees as simply the "Razor." It will go on sale from
Cingular Wireless on Nov. 15.

The Razor is Motorola's best design statement since the company's
pioneering StarTAC flip phone, back in 1996, and Motorola has some
other interesting new phones on the way.
