Motorola Brings Back The RAZR…But Its Not Like You Remember It

October 19, 2011

Back in the early 2K, Motorola had major success with the Motorola RAZR. This phone was part of the “Flip Phone Era” and was widely popular. Its thin design made it popular in an area where phones were kind of big and bulky. Now it seems that Motorola is going to give the RAZR a nice comeback run. Last night, Motorola announced that there will be a new and improved RAZR phone hitting the shelves soon. With a boatload of improvements and a touch of Moto magic, the Droid RAZR might just be a solid device to grab. Here’s what the rundown looks like for the specs on this android powered smartphone.

The Motorola Droid RAZR will be sporting a 4.3 super AMOLED screen for that vibrant and colorful display that you have seen on most Samsung devices. Looks like Motorola is taking a small page out from Sammie’s book with this one. The Motorola smartphone is also covered in a Kevlar coating inside and out so that it is better protected. This should prove useful for those of us that aren’t as sure handed and are subject to that oh-so-wonder “oops I dropped it” factor. For processing power, the Droid RAZR has 1.2ghz dual core processor and 1gb of RAM. Android 2.3.5 otherwise known as Gingerbread will also be running on the RAZR. Various sources have stated that ICS (Android 4.0) will be made available to this device in early 2012 year so that should be a plus.

The camera’s on the RAZR are also impressive. The front facing camera will be able to record at 720p and a rear 8mp camera that can record at 1080p for all your video recording needs. Another addition to the Droid RAZR is the custom preloaded app called Smart Actions. What this app is placed to do is that it will allow the user to automate the various functions and tasks of the phone. This can range from adjusting battery life, adjusting ringtone volume, turning on bluetooth and GPS and so on. This sounds like a pretty good addition just for the fact that it would cut down on a few apps that a person would download to access these functions (because some of us don’t like constantly going to “Settings” to do all of that.)

Last but certainly not least, the Droid RAZR has its own slew of accessories too. It has two lapdocks that it can use in the 500 Pro and the Lapdock 200. It also has a new bluetooth device called the Motorola Elite Sliver. The RAZR also has an HD Dock that you can use to connect to your HDTV for all your viewing pleasure.

Motorola seems to have done a good job with the new and improved RAZR. The release date hasn’t been announced just yet for the U.S. but Singapore should be getting the new smartphone in early November, which could mean that the U.S. release won’t be that far behind. We’ll keep you posted on those specific’s when they become available. Scroll down below for the official press release from Motorola and take a gander of what Motorola spoke about during their announcement….oh almost forgot…. the Droid RAZR looks to be heading to Verizon, but we’ll try to find more info to confirm that too. Till next time…

Motorola Mobility Reveals Motorola RAZR™: Impossibly Thin Meets Head-turning Innovation

Slick design and features with wow factor, available in Singapore from early November

SINGAPORE – Oct. 19, 2011 – Say hello to the jaw-dropping new Motorola RAZR™ brought to you by Motorola Mobility and all three local telecommunications operators – SingTel, StarHub and M1. Impossibly thin and lightweight, this smartphone is loaded with sexy curves. Its sculpted glass face, diamond-cut aluminum accents and hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display reflect museum-worthy industrial design, while its KEVLAR® fibre coating (yes, that KEVLAR) and Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen with splash-guard coating, make this work of art a force to be reckoned with. Motorola RAZR will be available in Singapore from early November.

While they’re still dazzled by the outside, hit them with what’s on the inside. A cool 1GB of RAM hooks up with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android™ 2.3.5 to get you a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. Rock your playlists while you check your email, breeze through photos – all at the same time, without delay. Motorola RAZR comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast™ app1, giving you the power to stream or download content from your PC straight to your device so your personal content is always within reach. Watch movies on a screen that sports a wider range of colours than most LCD HDTVs. And when you’re tired of watching (as if), use the cinematic-quality front-facing 720p HD video camera and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with even sharper 1080p HD video capture to create your own movies – all with image-stabilization technology to turn your life into art without breaking a sweat.

“Motorola put sexy in mobile phones when we launched the original Motorola RAZR with its sleek and stylish design. Now, meet the evolution of that iconic device in an impossibly thin body and yet packing unprecedented power that enables a range of experiences other smartphones just can’t rival,” said Spiros Nikolakopoulos, vice president and general manager, International Distribution Markets, Motorola Mobility. “In Singapore, we are partnering with the three local telcos to launch this head-turner and we know that their customers will be lining up to get their hands on this amazing smartphone.”

Work Smart, Not Hard
Government-grade encryption protects your email, contacts and calendar so you are business ready. Even your strict IT manager will be impressed. Work smart with Smart Actions – a preloaded app on Motorola RAZR that lets you automate everyday tasks and enable better battery life. Smart Actions can turn down the ringer when you step into work, change the Bluetooth and GPS settings when you get home to save battery, or send a text to someone if you miss their call – letting you focus more on what’s actually important.

And Motorola RAZR’s no slouch with physical safety either. It’s armed with Corning® Gorilla® Glass (no surface scratches) and a splash-guard coating, even on the electrical boards inside.

Accessories that bring a whole new universe to life
We’ve got the tools and toys to turn the world’s sexiest smartphone into a mobile cloud computing powerhouse, an HD media hub, and a navigation device (not to mention a killer stereo system).

Motorola RAZR is powerful on its own, no doubt, but when combined with one of Motorola’s incredible accessories, you unleash a world of possibilities. Use the new Motorola Lapdock™ 500 Pro or smaller Lapdock™ 100 to let loose Motorola’s revolutionary webtop application, giving you the power to edit documents and browse the Web with a full Firefox® browser – all while powering the device. Or, plug it into the HD Dock or HD Station to connect to your HDTV, speakers and other peripherals for large-screen entertainment. You can also connect a navigation dock for GPS and directions, battery pack for extra life, Bluetooth keyboard for efficient typing, and the elegantly designed, almost-invisible Motorola ELITE SLIVER™ headset for discrete, hands-free talking. Control your content and your calls, play basic games and browse the web from the comfort of your couch with the Smart Controller. You’ll have the brains, brawn and beauty to make the impossible possible.

Motorola RAZR is coming to all three main local telecommunications operators’ customers in Singapore. It will be available from early November. For more information please visit motorola.com/mobility.
