I have this weird affection for the original RAZR. Not any of the more recent versions but the original design. And you know what? It stills work very well. In contrast to all the Windows Mobile devices or Blackberrys you just pair it with your Mac and it syncs your address book and calendar just like that. And with the Google J2ME mail client it is very capable of delivering your mail.
Just don't try to surf the web. Or take a picture.
Well, I would very much appreciate links to get hold of the software that does the above, because mine utterly fails to do any of these things - and they were the reasons why I bought a (second-hand) RAZR in the first place!
Syncing with the Mac? It should do that via Bluetooth. GMail? Just take your device browser here: gmail.com/app .
This affection of yours is a weird one indeed.
I have got bad memories of the original (V3?) RAZR only: No distinguished keys, butt-ugly font and and clumsy (to say the least) UI. You mentioned the camera already. Not the type of device vowe appreciates generally. ;-)
I would perfectly understand if you would just appreciate the hardware / design. But in my case the address book just syncs names, phone numbers and email adresses with my Macbook - no addresses!
Nobody mentioned the calendar app on the RAZR: totally useless in my opinion. Sync works fine, but no acceptable day view, cannot even read the whole title of events. Compared, address book and calendar on my old 2nd gen iPod nano is much better.
Still, a good mobile phone, in its original meaning.

How about placing or receiving phone calls? Oh, wait, that's so yesterday...
@vowe - thank you for those links - am starting to understand (late in the day) that the problem re. Gmail is very likely to do with my telephone contract...
