Android enthusiasts who want to purchase the Motorola RAZR will be able to do so via select VIVACOM stores beginning next week. Even though there are no details on the phone’s retail price, expect the RAZR to go for around $700 (520 EUR).
It appears the new Motorola RAZR’s popularity is close to matching that of the old clamshell that made headlines several years ago. It even borrowed some the original traits, such as the name and the slim for factor.
At only 7.1mm, the Motorola RAZR was the thinnest LTE smartphone available in the market, until Fujitsu’s 6.7mm thick ARROWS μ F-07D took the crown for the world’s slimmest Android phone.
The RAZR sports a brilliant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced capacitive touchscreen, which is based on Motorola’s innovative mobile display technology. The screen boasts 540 x 960 pixels resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass against scratches and scrapes.
The back of the phone features KEVLAR fiber, while the insides are protected by a splash-guard coating.
There’s also an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities. A 1.3-megapixel front facing camera is included as well, which is perfect for video calls and chats.
Although the smartphone is delivered with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread on board, Motorola confirmed plans to upgrade the RAZR to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012.
With MotoCast application that comes pre-loaded on the phone, users can stream and download content from computers directly to their Motorola RAZR units.
It is also worth mentioning that the handset is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and packs 16GB onboard memory, 1GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
