Verizon's Motorola KRZR K1m turns gray

Oct 31 2006 - 03:15 PM ET | Motorola, Verizon Wireless

MOTOKRZRVerizon was able to launch the Motorola KRZR K1m first (Alltel followed quickly, Sprint is still waiting) but has already modified the color scheme. The KRZR K1m photos in Verizon Wireless' online store now reflect a phone that is gray and white, not black like it was at launch. Motorola hasn't shown off this color combination before and it appears exclusive to Verizon.

The grey KRZR is selling at the same $199 price point. But buyer beware, some shots of the black KRZR still show up on the Verizon Wireless site and there is no actual note that there was a color change. This could be a technical glitch before the new color scheme it was meant to go live.
