There have been an increasingly number of Motorola DROID RAZR HD leaks lately. The phone was first revealed as the DROID Fighter back in March, looking awfully similar to the current RAZR but with a larger 4.6-inch screen and 3,300mAh battery. The handset was mentioned again in leaked EXIF data last month, and another leak out of China showed the phone running Ice Cream Sandwich. The device has popped up again, this time in the Cellebrite database.
First there was the DROID RAZR. Then, there was the DROID RAZR MAXX. And now there’s the DROID RAZR in blue, although just like the white version before it, it’s more of a blue trim than a blue phone. Verizon has announced that the blue version will be in “select stores” starting from today, with online ordering possible from May 17th. Otherwise it’s the exactly the same phone.
There's no denying that Motorola has stuck to their guns when they said that the RAZR was a hero for them and that they'd be staying the name for some time to come as this week we're seeing a 720p version called the RAZR HD hit the wild. A couple of photos have been seen over in China at Gfan where this Motorola RAZR HD will be bringing not just 720p, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. Can we expect this titan to hit Verizon just like its predecessors over the past few months?
The Android smartphone landscape is constantly shifting, and Motorola may soon be revealing yet another device in their RAZR lineup. New evidence discovered in photo EXIF data points to the Motorola DROID RAZR HD. The photos were posted by a Motorola employee to Picasa, and reveals some details about the camera, as well as confirming a previous codename for the phone.
Motorola is back with another Android smartphone for Verizon's 4G LTE network. Adding another DROID to their ever-growing list of phones. Some might say they've released too many too fast lately on big red but the new RAZR MAXX is a bit special -- and available today. This phone features a standard, built-in 3,300 mAh battery. Something no other LTE handset can even come close to touching. See more after the break.
While Verizon and Motorola assure us that the back of the DROID RAZR by Motorola is not meant to be removed and that the battery is certainly not meant to be replaceable, the folks at iFixit never ever take no for an answer, starting their traditional teardown process with no less than the traditional Japanese saw known as the Dozuki. Of course there was no real need for this since there actually is a fingernail hole at the top of the device and snaps all around the edges that a non-terrifying instrument like your finger could work apart, but the glue between the battery and the back will make for a more difficult take-apart process for you. Then take note of the Kevlar, and be sure to remember that Kevlar in this state is both flexible and definitely not bulletproof - iFixit reminds us that bulletproof Kevlar is actually layers and layers of similar material backed up with a ceramic plate -- in other words, no bullets please!
We mentioned this morning that today was the day for those of you lusting after that thin Motorola Razr to get your hands on the smartphone. Amazon Wireless has a very low price on the smartphone that adds up to about $188 off the normal price of the smartphone. The normal price of the Razr is $299.99.
Motorola's DROID RAZR has a lot to live up to - and a clear warning around how to drop the ball in mobile strategy. Named after the slimline clamshell handset that changed Motorola's fortunes in 2004, this new dual-core Android promises to be the world's thinnest smartphone with power and performance to match. Thing is, Motorola quickly milked the original RAZR to death, pushing out special edition variant after variant while the market left its underwhelming specifications behind. Is this new DROID worthy of the RAZR name? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
Believe it or not, all you lovers of both hacking of Androids and updating of Androids, Motorola has today offered clarification of its future with unlockable bootloaders and updates for its products to no less than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is Motorola itself that today speaks to the world saying that "without a doubt" the two "hottest topics in [their] world right now" are Ice Cream Sandwich and bootloaders. Imagine that! Having just spoken with Sanjay Jha this past week, I can tell you firsthand that it wasn't the first (and it certainly wasn't the last) time he'd spoken with someone about Motorola's bootloaders and their unlockability as a hot topic.
We already know enough about the Motorola RAZR Android smartphone to be able to figure out the thing is pretty darn cool. We had hoped it would land running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box, but that didn’t work out. If you are wondering, when exactly the Android 4.0 update would come to the smartphone Motorola has now offered up that detail.
