The famous RAZR is back -- again. This time it's been completely redesigned from the ground up. Aptly dubbed the MOTORAZR2, the V9 edition boasts HSDPA connectivity, a stunning metal and glass finish, and touch sensitive music controls that disappear when not in use. Aesthetically, the MOTORAZR2 is once again a pretty stunning device. It's been built using a combination of plastic, metal and glass and feels extremely solid. The downside is that it's larger and heavier than we expected. Despite this, the design is wonderfully sleek and stylish, although the gloss finish does attract plenty of fingerprints. The keypad is once again a flat layout, but tactile feedback is impressive and the controls are well laid out.
A Closer Look at CrystalTalk™
We've all experienced it and dreaded saying those four words with so many variations -- What did you say? I can’t hear you. Can you repeat that?
Why is it that the core functional use of a mobile device - speaking to someone - often gives us the most trouble? You can try to block the noise out, but your handset can't always overcome your disruptive environment. Now, using the new MOTOROLA RAZR V8 AND V9 mobile devices equipped with CrystalTalk technology, you can avoid most of these problems and achieve crystal clear communication.
CrystalTalk is a bundling of microphone noise reduction, noise adaptive speaker enhancements, and on some products, a full duplex speaker phone. CrystalTalk is unique to Motorola products and incorporates a number of voice enhancement technologies for the device, wired headset and speakerphone. All enhancements improve the clarity and intelligibility of speech while you are in a noisy environment.
Consumers want clear, natural-sounding phone calls in noisy places like airports, pubs, streets, or football games. It’s difficult to deliver loudness and maintain quality simultaneously, but CrystalTalk is able to automatically adjust the audio quality based on ambient noise conditions to provide the optimal conversational experience. It works on any handset network or platform you’re on. By adapting the device’s sound characteristics to improve intelligibility and articulation, CrystalTalk maximizes speech clarity in noisy environments.
Motorola has led the charge in voice technology development, incorporating various enhancements into phones for years. Currently, CrystalTalk technology can be integrated into Motorola UMTS and GSM handsets and is in the process of development into CDMA handsets.
With several U.S. patents related to the CrystalTalk technology, Motorola is meeting what analysts consider the number one driver high quality - voice quality. Motorola is delivering an enhanced, unique, and crystal clear mobile device experience to the consumer.
