Here at ##SITENAMESHORT we hear from numerous consumers who love staying on top of the most advanced cellular features and which phones come equipped with the best.  Insight from consumers and our expert reviewers makes it easier for us to keep the visitors to our site on top of what features are really worth having on your phone. 

Recently, I have started to notice that instead of new features we are getting a lot of new colors.  With basic clamshells even coming equipped with Bluetooth technology, do you think that the manufactures have come to a stopping point on creating new technology for our phones?  Do you think we are going to just continue to get the same phones, just in different colors?

The PEBL by Motorola started out in a light metallic blue and now can be found in six different colors.  Think that's too many, the Motorola RAZR comes in 5 different versions (V3, V3c, V3i, V3x, V3m) and can be found in more than 16 different colors!  

With the announcement of the new KRZR (GSM) and KRZR K1m (CDMA), the RAZR successor, we saw advancements but no "NEW" features.  Each will have stereo Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot, and 176 x 220 displays, but nothing that other phones haven't already added.  Don't worry though, a blue and black model were introduced so you already have a color option! 

So which is it for you?  If the introduction of new colors makes you a happy phone consumer, tell me which color makes you smile!  And if new features are what you look out for, tell me about any new technology or features you hope to see!
