What's the Motorola Electrify?

Is the Motorola Electrify a US carrier variant of some other Moto phone?

No they're right. The sim card slot is unlocked for GSM networks so it'll work here in the uk.

I've been planning to get this phone for a while. (decided against it now after Razr/Atrix 2 release). So from the research i've done i know its a world phone and people have confirmed a vodafone sim in the UK works here with calls/texts/data.

It's the Motorola Photon http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_photon_4g_mb855-3987.php AFAIK it is not available outside the US - 3G is CDMA.

It is the Motorola Photon 4G but without the 4G part.
The only difference is the silver metal bit surrounding the phone on the sides, its grey on the Photon.

The phone has only been released in the USA but can be imported in to the UK. It will work on UK networks because the sim card slot is unlocked out of the box.

Ahmadcentral,
are the specs I posted wrong? Cause they indicate NO 3G in Uk/Europe.

Sounds good. Thanks :)

Jan, it says HSDPA 850/1900/2100. 2100 is European band for 3G. However, I do not see a point in getting this phone. Is there a point in having CDMA? Everywhere I have been there is always a GSM band in addition to CDMA.

My bad, Thanks, CTPAHHIK - I was only half-looking ;) oops
