A few weeks ago, I finally got fed up enough with my slow and buggy Nokia 6600 phone and took advantage of T-Mobile’s 2-year plan renewal discount on the Motorola RAZR V3 phone. If you know me, you know that I despised flip phones for their tendancy to break faster, but I have to say, I’m now a convert.

The cheesy “Hello Moto” stuff aside, the RAZR V3 is a nice little piece of gadgetry. The menus respond fast to key presses, they’re layed out well with a clear font to boot, the thing is damn thin (no more “is that a Nokia brick in your pocket or are you happy to see me?”) and the overall feature set is sure to please many a tech geek. My only qualm with it is that it is unable (as of this writing) to support my favorite phone app, Salling Clicker. Plus, the thing is quad-band GSM, which means it definitely will work most anywhere (such as in Turkey, where I will be going in March).
