    I'm thinking they have finally pulled it off.

    I've pretty much gone to a nice leather briefcase to carry my long wallet-has pen, checks,cards, id and money slot, cell, headset jabra and anything else, and have foregone much of anything in my suit pockets other than the business card holder, tickets/pocket, valet slip...I'm also thinking that 1. this will help the longetivity and quality of the suit 2. the fit looks much better 3. It's more organized and professional than having your suit and pant pockets loaded with a small arsenal.

    Thoughts?

    a handsome swiss-army phone. but how's the quality of moto phones lately? i used to own an early flip model years ago and was quite frustrated with its operations. also had a couple of friends with those razr models that they dislike using.

    If you want reliability and functionality, Motorola consistently fails to deliver. It was one thing to trust them with the Razr, which was basically a fashion phone with no expectations beyond being thin and pretty; I wouldn't ever buy a smartphone from them. The reviews may unexpectedly come back positive, but be very skeptical.

    Doesn't the screen get greasy when you talk on one of those things?

    I'm wary of anything touted as the must-have, made of plastic derivatives, and produced by large corporate entities.

    I've always driven vintage cars and the only computer I have is an Apple, which I suppose is a sin.

    More likely it's made of metal, so it's fine. I'm an Apple guy myself.

    I'll be interested to hear reviews. I recently got a Motorola Razr and while I love the thinness, there are some tradeoffs in user-friendliness. I kinda miss my bulky but trusty old Nokia.

    That's still way too much phone for me.

    I just got the motorola e-815 and it is working great so far...

    I had LG's and they were ok. I was afraid to get a motorola again but I read a lot of consistently good reviews (cnet.com, letstalk.com) so I decided to take the plunge.

    I do wish it was thinner like the razor. I was wearing a leather sportcoat over the weekend and the phone in my pocket (or on my belt) totally threw off my line when my jacket was buttoned.[​IMG]

    Razor actually has great hardware, materials, construction and for business great practical and professional attributes. Most importantly it is so thin it slides in your pocket.

    Do you work for Motorola, or are you just a very satisfied customer? Also - love the avatar. It became particularly amusing when I thought of you as a Motorola professional (the Moto-Pimp?)....

    ----- Software does suck for Motorola, so Mobile 5.0 should be a huge breakthru for MOTO software considering their razor software is plebian at best.

    I got the standard razr a month ago. I love the design and it works fine even with my big fingers.

    Several of my friends said they had bad experiences with it but except for a rare "freezing up" I just like the phone too much to consider a substitute.
