It's 11.11.11, which means the Motorola DROID RAZR is up for grabs on Verizon Wireless. Priced at $299.99 with a new, two year agreement, the DROID RAZR is - for the moment, anyway - the skinniest Android smartphone around, just 7.1mm for the majority of its chassis, and fronted by a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD Super AMOLED Advanced touchscreen.

There's also 4G support for Verizon's LTE network, an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus, an LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, and a 1.3-megapixel front camera for up to 720p HD video calls. Inside is TI's OMAP4430 1.2GHz dual-core with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage; Motorola also preloads a 16GB microSD card, bringing the total to 32GB.

We praised the DROID RAZR's build quality - though the broad, super-skinny design won't be for everyone - but had some issues with battery life, particularly when LTE was in use. For more on the DROID RAZR check out our full review.

Motorola has thrown together a dramatic advert for the new RAZR, which you can see below, though we can only imagine how frustrated the protagonist will be when he realizes he could've simple stopped by his nearest Verizon store.
