Nobody's told Motorola that the RAZR isn't "cool" anymore, so we'll just have to live with the cellphone's constant revisions, the latest of which is the V3i, now available on Cingular. RAZR fans stuck with Cingular now have the opportunity to enjoy iTunes music on a trendy-two-years ago RAZR. The main physical differences between the V3i and its predecessors are the inclusion of a dedicated music button and a microSD slot for music storage. Beyond the cosmetic differences, Motorola has also thrown in an airplane mode (never mind that we'll all soon be forced to fly completely naked); they've left out EDGE support, of course, because something actually useful is not allowed to be included in a RAZR.

The quad-band GSM/GPRS cellphone also sports a 1.2-megapixel camera, instant messaging and a speakerphone, among other standard, not particularly exciting features. Note that the battery life has taken quite a bit of a hit, it seems, with word that it's now rated to last only three hours while talking, down from the V3's seven. For shame, Motorola.

If you're on Cingular (apologies), you can grab the RAZR V3i for $299, less $50 with a 2-year contract.
