T-Mobile gets the Rizr

T-Mobile USA said today that it will start selling the Moto Rizr Z3, the first slider phone in the U.S. from Motorola.

The phone is high-tech and high fashion. It comes in a vibrant pearl blue with soft-touch finish, but also some quality features, like a 2.0 megapixel camera with 8x zoom.

The phone also has a built-in music player and stereo Bluetooth wireless capability. The phone has a microSD slot that can provide up to 2 gigabytes of additional memory (it comes with 128 megabytes), and it takes video and has USB connectivity to transfer files between it and a computer.

Check out the phone on the T-Mobile Web site, where it is selling for $99 after discounts.

The one surprising aspect of this phone is that it runs on T-Mobile’s slowest network called GPRS. That would take a long time to send a photo taken with a 2 megapixel camera to a friend.
