Motorola Inc. introduced two additions to its Razr phone family at its annual analysts' meeting, hoping they will be hits during the end-of-year holiday shopping season.
The Krzr (pronounced 'Crazer') and the Rizr are not yet in stores, but the Schaumburg, Ill.-based company is counting on the stylish phones' success to extend a hot streak that has boosted its market share to 22 percent, highest in eight years.
The Krzr is expected in stores in the third quarter and the Rizr in the fourth quarter, the company said in kicking off its two-day analysts' conference Monday night. Pricing isn't yet available.
The Krzr is slightly narrower than the Razr and has a music player and a 2-megapixel camera.
The Rizr is what's known in the industry as a slider, enabling a user to open it by sliding a cover to reveal a keyboard.
Also unveiled were three other new phones, including two more technically rich Razrs geared for high-speed networks.
The company has shipped more than 50 million Razrs since their introduction in November 2004.
