It’s back — the RAZR. However, with some helpful Verizon branding, it’s now the DROID RAZR. It sports a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED “Splash Guard” qHD screen, has a Stainless steel core, Kevlar back, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, is the “world’s thinnest smartphone” at 7.1mm thin, 1GB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Verizon 4G LTE, LapDock support, 32GB of memory including 16GB of on-board storage and a 16GB microSD card, Bluetooth 4.0, front-facing “HD” camera, and a massive 1800mah battery with 12.5 hours of talk time and 8.9 hours of video playback. The DROID RAZR’s interior boards are also protected against splashes, including its 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass screen.
One interesting point Motorola has mentioned about the DROID RAZR is Smart Actions, which does things like disable Bluetooth and GPS when you’re connected to your home WiFi network. Another feature is MotoCast, like iCloud or Dropbox It manages files on your devices and allows you to easily control all of them. Also included is government-level enterprise support, video calling and so on — meaning that the DROID RAZR could be used by any company who wants its files kept secret or secured.
Another great feature: linking the MOTOACTV watch to the DROID RAZR to get calls and texts without checking your phone. And to come to the inevitable question of pricing: $299.99 on 2-year agreement with Verizon Wireless, with pre-orders starting October 27th and availability worldwide in November (in countries other than the U.S. it will only be known as the RAZR).
Editor’s Note: I find the DROID RAZR very impressive, but considering the next great Nexus phone is (most likely) launching tonight, with a 95% chance it will launch with the new version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich), I find it iffy that a great device like this won’t be up to par with something like a possible Galaxy Nexus.
PR after the break.
