First Look: Moto KRZR

Krzrsg The KRZR, the newest style offering from Motorola, hits stores in the US this (K1m CDMA model for Verizon) -- but has been available online since the weekend and is in Orange stores in the UK already. I received a K1 (GSM model) last week, right before leaving for London and I love it. The phone works perfectly over here -- no dropped calls, text messages come through without a problem and super fast. I was texting with a friend in Chicago last night and 30 seconds after hitting send, I got a response.

Its gorgeous blue metallic reflective case is eye-grabbing and the sleek design fits perfectly in your hand, pocket or wherever you want to put it. It's a little thicker than the RAZR, but slimmer in width overall.

The K1 has a 2 mp camera (with 8x zoom!) that is hardly noticeable in the case yet takes great images -- and the phone's 1.9-inch display with 176x220 resolution is crystal clear. Plus the phone features streaming bluetooth stereo with incredible sound for downloadable MP3s. The one feature that is surprisingly missing from this "advanced" model is the music control keys that sit on the front of the K1m. Not sure why Moto wouldn't incorporate that, especially if they built in the streaming stereo. [Note to Verizon customers: the K1m only has a 1.3mp camera and no streaming stereo.]

Overall, I'm really pleased with the phone's performance thus far, especially the ergonomic fit in my hand while talking. And apparently Sprint just announced it's adding the KRZR, RAZR and SLVR in November.
