-- I just Brian -- for cnet.com and they were taking it. First look at the Motorola Droid RAZR and for Verizon Wireless. Available for pre order now and expect to hit store shelves September 13 for just 9999. The Droid RAZR impacts lots of high end Smartphone features for in mid range price.

It feels great resists fingerprints and protects the back from scratches but also means the 2000 -- battery isn't user removable. Other nice features include Android Ford auto Ice Cream Sandwich software driven by nimble one point five gigahertz dual core snapdragon processor. And one gigabyte program. Application performance looks to be very quick with smooth navigation either flipping through menus home screens are launching apps. I'm also expand the circles widget that provides -- information -- alerts time weather and battery level. All in a slick and graphically engaging interface. -- Motorola I know you wanna keep this circle things yourself but I'd be willing to pay top dollar for four bucks sounds a great deal to me.
