Verizon Wireless formally announced that MOTORAZR2 V9m will become available to Verizon Wireless customers in September 2007. Clearly in competition with Apple’s iPhone, MOTORAZR2 V9m comes with external touch-sensitive keys for access to Verizon’s catalog of over two million songs. It also comes equipped with Bluetooth® stereo support for listening to music.
The MOTORAZR2 V9m has a 2.0 megapixel camera with 4x zoom and picture, video, text, and instant messaging (IM) capabilities.
MOTORAZR2 V9m has been strategically priced by Verizon to be about half of that of the iPhone.
Sprint and AT&T are releasing their own versions of the MOTORAZR2 V9m. Sprint, in fact, promises to release its version of the phone in August before Verizon. Interestingly, Sprint also beat Verizon in releasing their version of the HTC 6800 as well.
Strategically, AT&T releasing a MOTORAZR2 V9m makes sense. They will not lose customers to Sprint and Verizon who do not want to pay for the much higher priced iPhone.
