Just wondering if anyone knows the likelihood of Telecom releasing the Motorola RAZR V3c phone?

Cool phone that would sell well.

Unlikely, unless Sprint has it, even then, unlikely given Telecoms current obsession with Sanyo.

It's bizzare that Telecom doesn't look at something like this though. It would definitely give them a much needed boost in the "we DO have cool phones" area

Sure would.

I could be wrong though - it could even be in testing. Telecom is usually fairly secretive about whats in PTC testing until a few months before its due.

Its a handset taken by Verizon in the US, Sprint haven't touched it thus far so I doubt you'll see it any time soon.


Sprint are doing the Samsung A900 which is thin though, it'd be cool if that was to land here!!!

OK, cool.

But really, in all honesty, are the cool phones in the pipeline actually genuinely cool phones? Because let's face it, Telecom have never had one phone that i would rather take over a Vodafone one (not including my Apache!).

And I'm not trying to bag Telecom here, but their phones are a little... well... ordinary
