Motorola finally announces the return of one of the best selling phones of all time. The original RAZR was a simple flip feature-phone that ended up in the pockets of millions all over the world Motorola has announced a very worthy successor to carry on the name. This new RAZR aims to attract a market for those who don’t want a typically bulky 4G phone. Its use of a Kevlar back and a stainless steel frame help it measure 7.1mm thick at most points, thinner than even a Galaxy S II, while still being strong enough to survive common abuse, including splashes. Battery life also doesn’t take the typical hit: Motorola expects 12.5 hours of calling and 8.9 hours of video.Part of this comes through an update to the Android 2.3 version of Blur known as Smart Actions. It can tell when the user is home, for example, and switch off Bluetooth and GPS knowing that it can get its position from Wi-Fi.



Although it has a 4.3-inch, 540×960 display like the Droid Bionic, it now uses a more vivid Super AMOLED screen that helps get to the new size. It’s also faster in clocking the dual-core TI chip to 1.2GHz. Motorola claims that the phone is more than twice as fast on the web as even the iPhone 4S: it can pull up ESPN’s page in three seconds versus the iPhone’s eight. The hardware is also purportedly the first to stream Netflix in HD.



The Droid RAZR has a large 1,780mAh battery in spite of its size and is one of the first Android phones to support Bluetooth 4.0. An eight-emgapixel back camera with 1080p recording and a front facing camera are similar to the Bionic, Motorola said. It carries 16GB of built-in memory and a 16GB microSDHC card already installed.

In the US, the Droid RAZR will be on Verizon’s network in early November for $300 on contract, with pre-orders starting October 27.
