  • QVGA screen
  • WiFi/Bluetooth
  • Windows Mobile Smartphone OS

Motorola to release RAZR tattoos

Motorola isn't done accessorizing the RAZR--the company will soon start shipping laser-etched (AKA tattooed) RAZR handsets. The artwork was designed by Ami James, best known from the TV show Miami Ink.

While mobile TV is already a reality in Japan, Qualcomm thinks the added features of MediaFLO will adapt nicely to the market. Many phones in Japan can tap into terrestrial digital TV signals, but MediaFLO will bring more DVR like functionality.
