One Eyed, One Horned, Flyin' Purple People Caller

When the new Lavender razor phone caught my eye, I was immediately transported back to my childhood in 1958. We were visiting the Illinois State Fair in Springfield that year and the hot novelty tune was something called the "The Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley. My Uncle bought us hats at the fair that looked like the alien one-eyed, one horned flying purple eater of the song. Sadly, they just don't write songs like that anymore. But they do make purple phones!

Motorola RAZR V3xx shown closed.What Motorola has created is of this world, but perhaps like nothing you've seen before. It's a Lavender version of the RAZR V3xx high performance cell phone. What it lacks in alien technology, it more than makes up in multimedia features galore.

Let's start with the one eye. That would be the 1.3 Megapixel digital camera with 8x digital zoom. It takes snapshots good enough to print or send via picture mail to friends. It also works as a camcorder to capture video with scenes as long as you have the memory to record. Memory on this beauty is expandable up to 4 GB, by the way.

As to the one horn, that would most likely be the Bluetooth headset clipped on your ear. Or it could also refer to the ringer that supports both MIDI and MP3 ringtones. See if you can find a copy of Sheb's big hit as your ringtone. Then try and keep a straight face.

Flyin'? I'll tell you what's flyin'. It's the AT&T TV with HBO or the AT&T Music with MTV, XM and Yahoo! music as add-on services. They're flying through the air and to your phone wherever you happen to be. Coverage is currently not available on other planets, but it's pretty decent in populous areas of the USA.

This advanced model of the venerable RAZR phone lets you use it as an MP3 player for all your favorite novelty and other tunes. It will stream music via Bluetooth wireless to compatible devices with big speakers, so everyone can enjoy the beat. Dialing can be done by punching in numbers or voice activated. For fun, associate your boss's phone with the phrase "take me to your leader." I'm not sure you can actually do that, and who'd want to anyway?

If lavender is your color, or if you're having Purple People Eater flashbacks, you can have your own purple people caller at a huge discount while the offer lasts.

Of course, popular and high performance cellular phones like the entire RAZR line, and just about anything else you would want, are available with great deals and lots of special offers at Cell Phone Plan Finder.
