Given Motorola's ill-fated re-entry in the Philippine in 2010, we do not expect to see the new Motorola Droid RAZR from an authorized distributor. But like the Defy, Atrix and Xoom we do expect to see some to land on the shelves of retail stores.
Why are we so interested in this phone. Mainly because Motorola has the audacity to launch their new device a day before the launch of the Google Nexus Prime. Sascha Segan of PC Magazine reports the Eric Schmidt of Google is at the event peaking our interest even more.
And here it is...
As expected, more or less, the specifications are -
- Android Operating System
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD Gorilla Glass display
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor, PowerVR SGX540GPU
- 1GB RAM
- 32GB storage: 16GB internal storage + MicroSD card slot with 16GB MicroSD card included
- 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture, 2MP front cam
- 4G LTE
- HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0
- 1800 mAh battery.
- Motorola Lapdock compatible
- Sync with the new MOTOACTV (A new Nano type wristwatch/media player/fitness device)
Interestingly, Motorola made the phone water resistant. It also features a new service called MOTOCAST, which syncs the phone with the PC. Motorola calls it your personal cloud.
Now here is the shocker... 7.1 mm thin and 120 grams. PC Magazine has an article how Motorola's engineers made the RAZR so thin.
This is the kind of phone we need on Smart Communications new 4G LTE network. THE RAZR IS BACK
