Watch this: Summer return of the Razr? Teaser video gets nostalgic for flip phones

Think back to the halcyon days of 2004. Gamers were levelling up in the brand new World of Warcraft. Google had just released a platform called Gmail (invitation only, naturally). Facebook was connecting people for the first time. And you probably took calls on your Motorola Razr.

The Motorola flip phone sold in excess of 100 million units to a pre-iPhone world. Now owned by Lenovo, Motorola's midrange Moto X phones of recent times have failed to make the same splash as the Razr. However, a new teaser video posted to YouTube seems to be pointing to a either a Razr relaunch or a new network teen drama.

The ad ends with a character-efficient "TTYL" (remember the days before over-the-top messaging services?) and the date of the Lenovo Tech World event, June 9.
