...or they'll just re-release the Razr. Unless this "control" involves releasing new designs, improving the UI, and putting the Q on a diet, I'm not all that hopeful. My guess is that he'll release a low-end Razr and try to cut costs in all the important areas like R&D.

I seriously wonder who'd been getting paid six to seven figures to come up with the idea of re-releasing the Razr and maintaining the exact same poor UI they had four years ago.
