If you are a Sprint customer you’re in luck. Sprint has just announced the availability of both the Motorola KRZR K1m and SLVR L7c through their service. Although Verizon Wireless has already had the KRZR since late-September, Sprint did however beat them in getting the new SLVR. Also as another bonus for Sprint users, phones offered through Sprint will retain the original user interface unlike Verizon’s phones.
Motorola KRZR and SLVR Features:
- 1.3 Mega-Pixel Camera
- Bluetooth Wireless
- TeleNav GPS Directions
- Phone as Modem EVDO
- MicroSD Storage
- Speaker phone
- Voice Dial + Caller ID
- Downloadable Java Apps
Both Moto phones will have access to all of Sprint’s new Power Vision services such as Music, Movies, and TV. Customers will have access to over 50 channels through Sprint TV, about 45 full-length movies such as “Spider-Man 2” and “National Treasure” through Sprint’s pay-per-view Movie service, and thousands of songs through Sprint’s Music Store. All of which can be purchased and downloaded directly to the phone (no computer necessary).
The KRZR K1m is already available through Sprint’s online store for $199 with a new service plan, however Sprint hasn’t yet announced pricing or the exact launch date for the SLVR. When we tested out the KRZR K1m for Verizon, we didn’t exactly give it the best review because it literally had no new features over the RAZR other than the external music controls. However lets hope that these Sprint phones have something more to offer since they aren’t limited to Verizon’s software user interface.
