Verizon launches Motorola W755

On the market for a blasé upgrade from your RAZR V3? Verizon’s new Motorola W755 is just for you.

As it’s yet another Moto clamshell, there’s nothing too exciting about it. Touch sensitive external buttons for controlling music, V Cast, and support for a handful of music formats (AAC, AMR NB, MIDI, MP3 and WMA V9) — all of which are made useless by the dongle-necessitating 2.5 mm headset jack. It comes in two flavors: “black slate” or purple — because nothing says royalty like a lower-mid-range Motorola.

The W755 should have hit the shelves this morning, and runs $69.99 after contract and rebate.
