I don't know what's gotten into Motorola today, but it's like they've opened the bomb bay doors and dropped a payload of telephony into our laps. We'd previously discussed both the forthcoming RAZR 2 (Canary) and RAZR Slider (Capri), both of which have been officially announced today, along with the RAZR MAXX (pictured).

Canary, officially named the Motorola KRZR (Krazer?) boasts a tri-band GSM plus EDGE chip or CDMA with EVDO, a 2 megapixel camera, a 176x220 screen, microSD slot, stereo Bluetooth audio, and is a full centimeter less wide than the RAZR.

Meanwhile, Capri (now known as Motorola RIZR) has the same features for the most part, with dimension at 45.5x105.5x16mm.

Finally, the RAZR MAXX has a 3.5G HSDPA high speed connection (Cingular's the only HSDPA provider in the US, so that's where this is probably heading), with a 2 megapixel camera and a VGA camera, that can apparently be used for video conferencing. You'll also find illuminated play/pause, forward, and back buttons on the phone's lid for listening to music (50MB internal memory, plus the microSD slot). Finally, there's a 120x160 pixel screen and it's a wee bit bigger than the original RAZR.

Whew. That's a lot of phonage. Maybe it's time for me to think about upgrading.
