Default Motorola RAZR V

Motorola just released an updated version of RAZR: RAZR V. It is a cheaper version: a littler thicker, cheaper display and front camera, no dual band WIFI, smaller internal storage and no GLONASS. However, overall this is still a very nice phone, and IMO might be better than anything available on Virgin mobile. I wonder if this model will be available from Virgin Mobile:
NeoWin. After all many other phones that end with V are sold by virgin mobile: i.e. HTC Evo V, HTC One V, LG Optimus V.

Oh, and this could be the phone for which $100 rebate is offered by Motorola.

Thats a bummer. Is there a possibility Motorola will release a CDMA version of this phone as well or companies usually do not do this?

DROID RAZR M if Sprint gets this (big maybe) & 4G LTE comes to VM. But if this is true IPhone 5 is Virgin Mobile ready it may be sooner. Just wait & see & think happy thoughts.

But vm in Canada is completely different than in us. They use GSM in Canada instead of cdma!

They are not the same company. Nothing in common but the name.

Droids are exclusive to Verizon in the US I believe plus we don't have lte anyway so it wouldn't work out for us if it did

Not sure what other carriers will get the Razer V, but it's available on the Australian carrier, Optus.

Edit: Looks like Bell and Wind mobile (Canada) also carry the phone.
