We got a brief DROID RAZR M hands-on experience at the event and found that it was a surprisingly powerful-feeling device for its status under the DROID RAZR HD devices sitting nearby. With its near-edge-to-edge 4.3-inch display, it's tried-and-true fabulously powerful dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood, and a collection of protective elements throughout this device's chassis that make it, again, an ideal phone for today's mobile landscape - just as the original DROID RAZR should have been (and still is, for many happy users, to be fair).

This week we've had a look at the next slide-out QWERTY smartphone to hit the 4G LTE universe in the Motorola PHOTON Q.
