Bell Mobility is sticking to its scheduled release of August 2 for the Motorola Razr V. The mid-ranged Razr phone and all of its Kevlar fiber glory is now on sale for $29.95 with a three-year contract – a minimum $50 value for the voice and data plan is required. Otherwise, you can snag the Razr V off-contract for $399.95.

Except for the rather chubbier build, there’s no questioning the resemblance between the Razr V and the original Razr when it comes to design and specs. At only 8.35mm thick, it’s still a remarkably slim and slender phone, mind you. Some also may prefer the on-screen buttons on the Razr V than the capacitive buttons of the older cousin.

The Motorola Razr V sports a 4.3-inch ColourBoost qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory, and up to 32GB expandable storage via microSD card slot. It also boasts an 8MP rear camera with HD camcorder, a VGA front-facing camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s no confirmation yet whether the device is upgradable to Jelly Bean.

If Bell doesn’t have a good coverage in your area, you can look for the Razr V on other carriers as well. As reported, all the major ones should have stock the phone soon. For example, a quick check at Virgin Mobile’s website shows that it’s already selling the Razr V for the same $29.99 price on contract – though the off-contract price is slightly cheaper at only $350.
