Motorola announces Android 4.0 smartphones for Canada

While Bell Mobility has scored an Atrix HD LTE exclusive, a number of Canadian carriers will offer the Razr V later this summer.

Motorola Mobility today announced a pair of new Android-powered smartphones set to arrive in Canada in the coming weeks.

Both the Atrix HD LTE and Razr V are expected to run Android 4.0, feature Kevlar fiber protection, and offer similar form factors. While they might look similar on the surface, there are a number of differences tucked under their hoods.

First up is the Motorola Razr V, the latest in the remarkably thin Droid Razr series, and the most powerful thus far. Details include a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera (1080p HD video recording), HSDPA support, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a microSD expansion slot.

Squeezed into an 8.4mm chassis, the Razr V will be available across a number of carriers, including Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile, and WIND Mobile. Motorola isn't quite ready to divulge pricing just yet, but the company said it would arrive in stores later this summer.

The Motorola Atrix HD LTE is a slightly more robust device on multiple fronts, most notably in the support of 4G LTE connectivity. Due "this summer" as a Bell Mobility exclusive, the Atrix HD LTE also offers consumers a 4.5-inch HD (720x1,280-pixel) display, and 1.5Ghz dual-core processor in the same 8.4mm frame.

Like its recently announced U.S. counterpart , the Motorola handset also comes with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, Micro-HDMI, and microSD expansion for up to 32GB.
