Motorola Razr M to reach Australia on October 30, now up for pre-order from Telstra
We’re only a couple of days away of the Droid Razr HD and Maxx HD’s launches, but before Moto’s new flagship devices can see the light of day, the mid-range Razr M and Razr i are continuing their gradual global conquering.
We’ve seen the Intel-powered Razr i unveiled in UK, Brazil, France and China lately, with its Qualcomm counterpart getting the attention in the States and Japan. Now the Razr M is extending its reach to Australia too, where it should start shipping on October 30.
In the meantime, Aussie tech lovers can pre-order the device from Telstra without worrying about any upfront payment. The nation’s number one carrier has the Razr M for free on 24-month contracts with four different plans.
The most affordable of these, the S plan, will have you pay $60 per month for 1GB of data, unlimited texts and $600 worth of calls, while the priciest of the bunch (XL) includes 3GB of data, unlimited texts and talk time for a monthly fee of $130.
There’s no noticeable difference between the Australian Razr M’s spec sheet and the phones’ features in the U.S., but if you missed the Verizon Razr M introduction, here’s a very quick rundown:
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 960 x 540 resolution
- Dual-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU
- 1GB of RAM
- Android 4.0 ICS (upgradeable to Jelly Bean “soon”)
- 8GB of on-board storage
- MicroSD support
- 2,000mAh battery
- 4G LTE
Anyone excited about the “full-screen phone” down under in Australia? Or would you rather wait and see if the Razr HD and Maxx HD will ever make their way towards you?
