Announced as a Verizon exclusive in the US, the brand new Motorola Droid RAZR will also be released in other markets, although without the Droid branding – which is understandable, since this belongs to Verizon.
In Canada, Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa, the new handset will be simply called Motorola RAZR. And, like in the US, it will be launched starting November. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to buy it next month (for example, Rogers said it’s launching the handset in Canada “in time for the holidays”, which could also mean in December).
Historically, Moto’s RAZR phones have been fashionable, thin clamshells that were very popular back in their days (more than 130 million units sold worldwide).
The new Android-based Motorola RAZR is not a clamshell, but it is both fashionable and thin – only 7.1mm. It runs Android 2.3.5, and features a 4.3 inch qHD “Super AMOLED Advanced” display, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory (about 11GB user available), and a 1780 mAh battery.
The new RAZR is quite a tough handset, as it uses Gorilla Glass, Kevlar fiber, and splash-guard coating.
Motorola didn’t say how much the Android RAZR will cost outside the US. However, we know that Verizon will sell it for $300 on contract – so its off contract price should be about $500 – $600.
