Does anyone remember that rumor we reported on just last week of a blue Motorola Droid RAZR hitting Verizon? Well, that’s not a rumor anymore, as Big Red has confirmed the official release of the new version of the phone.
The blue Droid RAZR will hit Verizon’s shelves, both online and offline, on May 17 (the day after tomorrow), which is one day before the suspected date from last week. And if you thought that the release was going to be an insignificant event that would go without much attention from the nation’s biggest mobile carrier, you thought wrong.
A short promotional video has hit YouTube the other day and shows us the new Droid RAZR in action. The clip has a very catchy soundtrack and the blue is everywhere! The Earth, the sky, the ocean, the moon, everything seems to celebrate the new phone’s coming and, while I wasn’t impressed by the looks of the Droid RAZR last week, I must say that it’s starting to grow on me.
The phone was available in black, white and purple so far, but there was simply something missing to make the most out of the ultra-thin design and the sturdy, yet elegant exterior of the Droid RAZR . Don’t get me wrong, I’m not seriously considering buying a blue RAZR, but I can understand why some of you might be tempted to go for it.
As we told you last week, the new Droid RAZR “version” will pack the same specs as the original phone and the only change is the coat of “paint”. You will therefore get the same dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, the 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board storage, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a 540 x 960 pixels resolution, 4G LTE connectivity and a 1780 mAh battery.
The RAZR’s biggest problem is still the software, as far as I’m concerned, with the 4.3-incher running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a planned ICS update to take place “sometimes soon”.
Verizon hasn’t mentioned anything about the Avatar-esque phone’s pricing, but we’re pretty sure we will be seeing this go for $199.99 with a two-year agreement and $599.99 with no contract. Those are the price tags of the current black, white and purple versions and there’s no reason to think that the cyan model will be in any way considered superior or inferior to the trio.
Check out the cool promotional video of the new RAZR below and let us know what you think of it! Will you be looking to “get into the blue” anytime soon?
