Motorola Droid Razr Goes on Pre-order at Verizon

Recommended Posts


The super-thin, super-light, 4G-sporting Motorola Droid Razr officially goes on sale this morning at Verizon Wireless, but you’ll need at least $299 to grab it and then you’ll have to wait until sometime next month before it arrives.

Motorola launched its latest Android phone last month after weeks of speculation, leaks, and even preview images that were sent out just hours before the unveiling. At 7.1 mm, it is, as many speculated, the thinnest 4G smartphone on the market. It’s also shockingly light, weighing just 127 grams.

Its 4.3-inch super AMOLED display makes it somewhat larger than Apple’s iPhone 4S, but the screen resolution is still slightly lower. Inside is a peppy dual-core CPU and 1 GB of RAM. There’s also an 8MP camera on the back and a 1.3MP camera on the front.

Interestingly, the Razr, which runs Android 2.3 (a.k.a. Gingerbread), launched just a day before Google and Samsung introduced the Nexus Galaxy S running Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s not unusual for various Android carriers and manufacturers to use different versions of Google’s mobile operating system in their phones, but Motorola’s Razr was positioned as the latest and greatest Droid. It may be hard for the phone to fulfill that promise if it continues running what some see as an outdated Android OS for too long. The phone won’t get the 4.0 update until sometime in 2012.

At $299 (with a two-year contract), the phone is also $100 more than the latest Apple iPhone 4S and $50 more than Verizon’s Droid Bionic. Verizon also lists the Motorola Razr’s retail price at $649, but is not offering the option of buying an unlocked verison of the phone.

Thin is In
