Posted by at 10:31 am on October 18, 2011

Motorola and Verizon Wireless today announced the Droid RAZR, a new Android-based smartphone that revives Motorola’s iconic branding.

It has a stainless steel core, Kevlar back, Gorilla Glass front, and Splashguard nanotech coatings both inside and out. The Droid RAZR features a slim design measuring 7.1mm at its thinnest point and a 4.3-inch, 960×540 resolution Super AMOLED Advanced display.

The RAZR has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera with 1080p video capture, and Motorola’s MotoCast and Smart Actions software.It is compatible with Verizon’s LTE 4G network.

Other features include Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy; 16GB on-board memory and 16GB microSD card included; remote wipe, pin lock, and government-grade encryption for email, calendar and contacts; voice and video chat conferencing; and an HD user-facing camera.

Battery life should be a hit with owners too!  Motorola expects 12.5 hours of calling and 8.9 hours of video.

The device still utilizes Android 2.3, sorry nothe first ice cream phone.  With that being the case,  Motorola has worked to improve the experience with a number of new features. We like the automatic upload options for videos and pictures, along with new location-based power management that can turn off bluetooth when a user is at home or silence the ringer when at work.

The Droid RAZR will be available in early November for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
