Motorola announces Droid Razr

Motorola finally announces the Droid Razr, its thinnest Droid yet. It has a dual-core processor, 4G LTE support, and a 4.3-inch Super Amoled Advanced display with qHD resolution.

Motorola has officially announced the Droid Razr, which combines the power of the Droid branding with the iconic slimness of the Razr. Motorola says it is 7.1mm thin and is built out of Kevlar fiber and Corning Gorilla Glass, both of which contribute to the device's durability and scratch resistance. The Droid Razr also claims it has a water-repellent nanocoating.

As was leaked yesterday, the Droid Razr has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor along with support for Verizon Wireless 4G LTE. This makes it the second Verizon phone to have both these highly coveted specs--the Droid Bionic was the first. It also has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with qHD resolution, and the company boasts that it's the first smartphone that is capable of streaming Netflix content in HD.

It ships with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video capture and image stabilization, a front-facing HD camera for video chat, 4G LTE mobile ho tspot, and remote wipe, pin lock, and government grade encryption for enterprise minded customers. The Droid Razr is one of a few phones to ship with Bluetooth 4.0 , which heretofore has only been on the iPhone 4S and the Nokia N9. It has 32GB of memory--16GB on board and a preinstalled 16GB microSD card. Other features include Quickoffice for documents, Motocast for streaming or downloading media from the PC to the phone, a Smart Actions app that automates tasks and optimizes battery efficiency, and of course the Webtop application that turns the phone into a portable PC by docking it into a Lapdock 100 or HD Station.

The Motorola Droid Razr will be available for $299.99 in early November after a new two-year service agreement with Verizon Wireless. You can start to preorder the phone on October 27.
