Excerpt: After making huge profits on the market with the RAZR model, Motorola decided to continue the series with a technologically updated handset � Motorola KRZR K1. Even if the new clamshell features few innovations, we can easily tell that Motorola created another masterpiece. Unfortunately, it only applies in terms of design, but that didn't hurt the success of the handset which became the rightful disciple of Motorola RAZR.
Pros: The best thing about K1 is also the first thing you notice � design. New features introduced are also making a fine addition, EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD card slot. Also the possibility to charge your phone when you synchronize it via USB cable is a positive feature.
Cons: Poor sales package, bad sound (that includes the 2 mediocre music players), both displays are too small, defective implementation of EDGE and Bluetooth connectivity are dropping the functionality of the handset. Also the face cover of the phone will be greasy in no time because of the shiny material used.
Excerpt: It’s upto you how you pronounce it—'crazer', 'K-RAZR' or 'kerzer'—but Motorola’s KRZR K1 doesn’t jump out at you like the RAZR did once upon a time. Perhaps it’s because slim and shiny phones are no longer a novelty. Or perhaps it’s because the KRZR is just not different enough from the RAZR to warrant it’s own series. Design Most simply, the KRZR is a narrow and thick version of the RAZR.
Excerpt: The Motorola Krzr K1 is a stylish clamshell feature phone. It won't suit anyone seeking a high-tech mobile with high performance but the slim form factor and decent specs may tempt some people. The Krzr K1 is aimed at the younger, non-business market...
Summary: The model delivers good receiving quality, typical for all modern devices. Ring tones’ volume is slightly above average, midi-tunes are played back via 64-chord polyphony module, which ensures fairly great sounding. The silent alert is nothing special on the KRZR – it’s somewhere between “average” and “slightly above average” strength-wise. The loudspeaker outputs enough volume during conversations for nearly all environments.
Summary: Motorola really struck gold with the V3 RAZR. It was slim, stylish and sold extremely well. Essentially, it was a fashion device, but, at the same time it brought together everything users demand from a device – and now it's the turn of its successor, the Motorola KRZR K1. In terms of design, the K1 is a device in a similar veinto its V3 forefathers – it's slim (only 2MM) and stylish, so fitting it in your pocket will not be a problem.
Excerpt: M otorola was founded in 1928 by the brothers Paul and Joseph Galvin. Company names are often based on a combination of names or the place where the product is made, but not Motorola. Where does the name Motorola actually come from? In 1930, the Galvin MFG. Corporation (as Motorola was then called) built the first commercial car radio. Back then, in America, car radios cost between $ 110 and $ 135, an exorbitant amount in those days, but it still became a hit.
Summary: With a stunning reflective surface and unique slim design, the MOTOKRZR K1 is one of the best looking mobile phones we’ve seen. It’s not all about looks though, as this phone has a generous features list for its asking price.
Pros: Great design, Slim and compact, Build quality, Solid features list, A2DP Bluetooth profile, Bluetooth headset included in sales package
Cons: Not kind to fingerprints, Flat keypad, Slow speeds for messaging and some menus
Excerpt: The Motorola KRZR K1 boasts a very stylish slim design making it attractive to look at and comfortable to hold as well. It is a little taller, thicker, and heavier than its predecessor, the RAZR model, which gives it a much classier look and feel. The metallic gloss coating also adds to the luxurious look; however, it is prone to smudging from fingerprints and may not be so great at withstanding scratches when it is not in its carrying pouch.
