CES: Motorola's Razr beats LG's vx8600 in personal cell phone showdown

For a while now, I've been meaning to write about a recent "sales" experience that I had in a Verizon Wireless phone store where I was very much torn between LG's vx8600 and Motorola's Razr. Verizon Wireless was only going to charge me about $20 more for the LG phone than for the Razr and the LG phone is a bit different, cooler looking (to me), and offers something that the Razr doesn't: support for Bluetooth's wireless stereo headset profile.

Verizon Wireless was only going to charge me about $20 more for the LG phone than for the Razr and the LG phone is a bit different, cooler looking (to me), and offers something that the Razr doesn't: support for Bluetooth's wireless stereo headset profile. But as I stood there in the store for what seemed like forever torn between the two phones (I was picking it out for my wife), I settled on the Razr. Fortunately, here at CES, I was able to lay my hands on both phones at the same time and show you why.

Here's the video:
