Motorola re-launches their classic RAZR mobile phone but this time named it Gleam.
Back in the day the Motorola RAZR was a real popular mobile phone, so popular that it managed to remain the #1 phone for 5 consecutive years. What phone has been able to do that? Today you would probably not buy a 3 or 4 year old handset but the RAZR was so popular that people did buy it. Motorola has decided to bring back this legendary handset but just give it another name, the Motorola Gleam.
Motorola has added some features that the original model didn’t have, which make perfect sense. The Motorola Gleam features FM radio, MP3 playback, video capture and landscape video viewing. This is sure going to be a popular handset for those who did have one back in the day and would like to re-live their RAZR days. As you can see from the images, Motorola hasn’t changed the handset much, sticking to their 2005 design but has added a 2 megapixel camera, a WAP browser, and only works on GSM networks. I think Motorola could have done a little better than a 2MP camera and a front facing camera even if it was VGA would have been nice.
“The MOTOROLA GLEAM is a stylish and fun phone that also offers consumers a number of key entertainment features,” said Andrew Morley, vice president of marketing for Motorola Mobility, international markets. “It’s also a little quirky with its lighting design letting you stand out from the crowd and make a statement.”
Other features that you are going to find on the Motorola Gleam (RAZR) are a WAP 2.0 browser support, SMS, MMS, Email (POP3/IMAP), 32MB Flash/16MB RAM; end user memory>5MB, 800 phonebook, 500 SMS, Micro SD supports up to 16GB, 2.4″ QVGA display, GSM dual band 900/1800, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with A2DP support, Micro-USB charging & data (USB 2.0 HS) and a 3.5mm audio Jack.
