Geek Bling Bling

The most popular phone at our conference was the Motorola V3 Razr.

 

Made of various metal alloys, it seems like a fine fashion accessory to the Powerbook.... Thinner than my pinkie when folded, it weighs under 100 grams. The backlit alloy buttons depress slightly for a pretty good ergonomic experience.

 

They were all purchased in China. The U.S. launch was delayed behind China as Motorola was inking a carrier deal. (For the U.S., Cingular got a 3-month exclusive, but they demand a 2 year minimum contract).
