Motorola has announced a second iTunes-capable phone, this time part of its very popular RAZR range of mobiles.

The RAZR V3i is described as "delivering the ultimate combination of design and technology".

Consumers can choose from two models: one integrates iTunes support, the other with support for Motorola's own Digital Audio Music Player.

It carries a large internal colour screen, quad-band technology and Bluetooth wireless. It carries a 1.23 megapixel digital camera (which captures still and video images and has an 8x digital zoom) with a full screen view-finder, zoom, and video capture and playback. 

Hands-free calling, SMS and MMS messaging are supported, and the device carries a MicroSD removable memory card.

The handset also supports Motorola's SCREEN3 technology for "zero-click access to news, sports and entertainment".  It also hosts picture caller ID.

Additional features include Java games and screen savers with support for MP3 ringtones.

The new iTunes phone is expected to ship before the end of the year in the US. Local UK details aren't yet known. iTunes is not available on all models in all regions.

If the phone has iTunes software the messaging key will be replaced with a dedicated iTunes key.

Motorola's previous attempt at an iTunes phone - the ROKR - has failed to impress the market. The addition of such features to the already-popular RAZR range may offer the firm another chance to tempt the market. It is not yet known if the phone has a 100-song limit, as the ROKR did.
