BusinessWeek reports on Motorola’s plans to produce a line of handsets based upon the Razr V3. In case you somehow missed it (I’m not sure how you could have if you’re in the US and watch television, because Cingular carpet bombed the airwaves with Razr ads over the holidays), the V3 is a new top […]
