After teasing the market for months, Motorola has finally unveiled its new KRZR, RIZR, and RAZR maxx mobile phones. The new phones feature slimmer profiles than the famous Motorola RAZR, and offer EDGE broadband connectivity which is sure to appeal to the U.S. marketplace.

The new MOTORIZR offers a sleek slider design meant to appeal to the fashion- and style-conscious, and includes a 2 megapixel digital camera (with dedicated side key for taking pictures), a built-in music player which supports MP3, AAC, AAC+ and AAC+ Enhanced audio, 20 MB of onboard memory (expandable with MicroSD storage), USB 2.0 and Bluetooth (A2DP stereo for wireless music headsets) connectivity, quad-band GPRS/EDGE mobile functionality, and a 1.9-inch 176 by 220 LCD display. The RIZR should be available in the second half of 2006 in a avariety of colors, although no pricing has been revealed.

Motorola seems to think the MOTOKRZR will be the latest “it” phone, with the clamshell device offering a built-in camera with H.263 and MPEG video capture capability, MicroSD data storage, a built-in music player with AAC, MP3, and AAC+ support and front-face music controls. Motorola plans to offer two models of the KRZR
