It comes with unlocked bootloader, but warranties will be voided
It’s only been a month since Verizon got a developer edition smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S III. Today, Motorola Mobility decided to go live with its DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition.The smartphone is now available for purchase via Motorola’s official online store for $599.99 USD (460 EUR) outright.
However, the DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition comes with unlocked bootloader, but once the owner gets the unlock code, the device is no longer covered by the Motorola warranty.
The unlock bootloader allows users to experiment with different ROMs, which might cause the devices to stop working, though its overall performance may be improved as well.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition can be ordered now, but customers should know the device would only be shipped on October 22. Check it out here.
As for hardware configuration, the DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition comes with the same specs sheet as the standard model, which is now up for grabs from Verizon Wireless.
The smartphone is equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 1GB of RAM and 12 GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card slot.
Furthermore, the DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition boasts a stunning 4.7-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
The 8-megapixel rear camera features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. A secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls is included as well. The DROID RAZR HD Developer Edition packs a 2530 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
For the time being, Motorola does not plan to release a DROID RAZR MAXX HD Developer Edition unit, so those who wish to take advantage of the unlocked bootloader should grab the DROID RAZR HD instead.
