Motorola Droid RAZR unveiled: LTE, 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED displayIn Devices
When the original Motorola RAZR came out in 2004 it turned the mobile world upside down with its slim profile and impressive design. Motorola sold more than 50 million units of the device, which makes it the all time best-selling clamshell. However, Motorola didn’t quite manage to continue riding the enormous wave of success which the RAZR set and inevitably lost momentum.
This newest addition to Verizon’s Droid lineup boasts a Gorilla Glass coated, 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display — a first for any mobile handset — atop a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP4430 processor. Although the RAZR may look like a Kevlar-wrapped, slightly warped Droid X with its 7.1mm skinny silhouette and familiar topside hump, the insides tell a different tale. Joining the list of well-heeled specs, are an 8 megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p HD video, 1GB RAM, 16GB of onboard storage with 16GB additional on the microSD card and an 1,800mAh battery. Moto’s also included Lapdock 100 and 500 Pro compatibility, converting this latest red-eyed beastie into a power user’s best friend.
