Motorola is about to make a big comeback on Verizon Wireless with the launching of Motorola’s “next big innovation” set for October 18 in New York City. The two companies have sent out invitations and…
British online phone retailer Clove has confirmed that the Motorola RAZR will be available from the retailer starting on November 1. The phone’s VAT-inclusive price is expected to be GBP454.80 (US$624).
To be called the Motorola DROID RAZR in the United States, the U.K. variant will be branded simply as the Motorola RAZR but will still be expectedly super fast with its 1.2-GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, despite the recent launch of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the phone will run Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. Although, an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich can be expected soon.
Owing to its “impossibly thin” size of 7.1 mm, the Motorola RAZR is also super strong with its Kevlar Coat protection at the back, and Gorilla Glass scratch protection up front. It also includes Splash Guard, which provides additional protection from unexpected water spills.
Also packed under the hood is its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 960×540 resolution–for extra crispy display. It also carries an 8-megapixel rear camera and an HD front-facing camera.
The handset has MotoCast already integrated in its system–which allows you to access your computer files from any part of the globe and also allows you to sync with your MotoACTV.
In the U.S., neither Motorola nor other phone carriers have made official announcements yet about the Motorola DROID RAZR’s release date and price. But, according to leaked info allegedly coming from Verizon’s internal system, the device is aimed at a November 10 launch with a US$299 on-contract price.
Earlier reports are also pointing to the same release date for the recently unveiled Galaxy Nexus with the same US$299 price.
Who among you will be getting the Motorola (DROID) RAZR once it is released?
