Oh God the Motorola RAZR Is Back (with Android on Board)

Illustration for article titled Oh God the Motorola RAZR Is Back (with Android on Board)

This morning Motorola threw up a teaser page for a new phone being revealed tomorrow. Droid-Life did a little sleuth work and pieced together none other than the very svelte RAZR reboot with Droid branding. Looks sharp, indeed.


We saw the first leaks of this sucker last month, and it sounds like a thinner, faster, prettier, more-powerful Droid Bionic. The 1.2GHz dual-core processor is nice, 4G LTE is nice, but the qHD Super AMOLED display is what I really want to see. In theory, it should look much better than the Bionic's screen, which was bright but ugly. Also of note is the kevlar back, which might just make this phone literally bullet-proof. Looks very thin, too.

For those of you who have forgotten your cellular history, the original Motorola RAZR, which was released back in 2003, became the number one selling clamshell phone of all time (which it still is). The original series of RAZRs sold more than 130 million units and pretty much saved Motorola's life. This looks like a very worthy reboot to an iconic brand name. We'll be sure to give you all the deets tomorrow. [Droid-Life via This Is My Next]

Update: We just received a little teaser kit from Motorola, which included a carbon-fiber-looking mouse pad, a die-cast U.S. Air Force SR-71 Blackbird, a Moto-branded Rubix Cube, and a little bag of peppermint patties. There was a note promising that we'll see how it all fits together tomorrow. There's speculation that we may be seeing the Xoom II tomorrow as well as the RAZR. Check back tomorrow at noon EST for our live coverage.

I can't believe Moto is already replacing the Bionic. That device was just a mess of endless delays.

This looks decent. Wasn't Moto supposed to start unlocking thier phones around the end of the year?

The Nexus will also be announced tomorrow, so should be an exciting day for Verizon android users.
