Motorola officially unveils the DROID RAZR

Motorola has officially unveiled the DROID RAZR smartphone at today's press event in NYC. It is indeed faster, stronger, smarter, and thinner. The last one, being true to its RAZR name, measuring in at only 7.1mm thin at its thinnest point.

The Motorola DROID RAZR is now confirmed to sport a 4.3-inch advanced qHD display, which boasts a high contrast ratio and richer color saturation than the iPhone 4S. The display is fully covered with Gorilla Glass and the chassis is indeed made with Kevlar and splash-proof. It features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p HD video capture.

But besides the faster and more powerful specs, the DROID RAZR also boasts smarter power management with Motorola's "SmartActions" technology that automatically performs certain actions like turning off your Bluetooth settings once you reach home to help conserve battery life. It can be customized to fit your needs and can extend battery life by 30%. It boasts 12.5 hours of talk time and 8.9 hours of video viewing.

The device will be a 4G LTE device heading to Verizon as suspected. It also features Motorola's WebTop technology that integrates it with desktop interfaces as well as MotoCast and other enterprise features. It will also have a whole bunch of accessories available for it.

The Motorola DROID RAZR will be priced at $299 with a new two-year service agreement. Pre-orders will start on October 27 with the device to be available in stores starting November.
