Verizon and Motorola have very quiet and very ignored for the last few months as the storm from the new iPhone is in full swing. Today comes the announcement of the next generation RAZR 2. Featuring an external display (amazing!) and touch sensitive keys and bluetooth support (didn’t it already have that? or did they just de hobble it?)

I’m underwhelmed. But maybe Verizon and the RAZR can grab people looking for a high quality “phone” that don’t need to surf the ‘web’ and watch videos of dogs skateboarding.
