LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola makes its annual red carpet appearance at Hollywood's most prestigious evening honoring the best in film at the 77th Annual Academy Awards. Continuing its tradition of providing the 25 top acting and directing nominees with a not-yet-available mobile phone, this year the nominees will receive a special-edition black RAZR V3 with three months of complimentary service from Cingular Wireless. With its razor thin design, the V3 can easily be slipped into the smallest evening bag or tucked away into a tuxedo jacket taking celebrity technolust to an all- time high for continuous award show communication. The nominees will be gifted a stealth-like, all black version of the most-coveted mobile of the season, the Moto RAZR V3, making them the only recipients of this eye-catching mobile marvel.
