At the risk of over-using the term Bling—you may want to take a look at this piece o’ shine. I’m talking (as does anyone who sees it) about the Motorola K1 KRZR Gold Edition Unlocked GSM Cell Phone. While the Smartphone battle between Palm, Blackberries, and iPhones rages on without hope of resolution, Motorola has quietly introduced the successor to the RAZR flip phone (remember how cool this phone was when it was initially introduced?) and no so quietly, covered it with gold.

Now, it is doubtful that there’s any real gold on the Motorola K1 KRZR Gold Edition. That would just be silly. But, at only 100 grams, this phone is easily worth its weight. The K1 KRZR is available in several colors; one of which is the color of money. Or what money is based on, anyway. Aside from being an ultimate fashion statement, the K1 KRZR gold edition has extensive functionality features as well. The input controls are reminiscent of the original RAZR Interface, however somehow manage to be even sleeker. Ultra-modern minimalist, anyone?

Reflecting the design language of the super-slim RAZR , the K1 KRZR exudes pure luxury with clean lines, precision detailing and premium materials shrouded within a distinctive metallic gloss finish on the front. Because the K1 KRZR is a true Quad Band GSM Cell Phone, it can be used almost anywhere in the world. Other connectivity features like EDGE technology for hi-speed web browsing and downloads and Screen3 technology for zero-click access to the latest news and entertainment mean the KRZR puts premium power in the palm of your hand. There’s even predictive texting software so you can get your point across quicker.

The fun doesn’t stop there. In fact, the fun doesn’t have to stop anywhere, because the phone comes with an integrated 2.0 Megapixel camera. That’s a pretty good resolution for a camera phone—so you’ll capture everything from precious family memories to embarrassing Vegas vacation moments in vivid detail. Just share the blackmail money with me, will you?

Other handy features of the K1 KRZR Gold Edition (Besides it’s ability to captivate a beautiful stranger’s attention) include full Bluetooth connectivity, just in case you find that odd moment when you want to put the phone in your pocket. (Maybe you could get some clear pants.) It comes with a 512MB MicroSD card, and you can upgrade that card with one of your own up to 2GB. What to do with all this storage? The K1 KRZR has a functional MP3 player, a calendar function, and you’re going to need someplace to store those digital photographs, as well.

There are plenty more useful features, but I won’t bore you. If you’re after a phone that turns heads, but want to avoid the unsexy “size of a rice cake” form factor so common to the Smartphone genre, the K1 KRZR Gold Edition is the phone for you. So get yourself some bling. Get the Motorola K1 KRZR. Don’t you think you deserve some gold in your life?
