Motorola may have announced the Atrix HD for the United States, but it's also bringing another phone to the Canadian market, the RAZR V. It looks fairly similar to the original RAZR, but has seen a slight redesign. Motorola say the RAZR V is 8.4mm thick and features the same Kevlar back, and the company is quick to point out the numerous software enhancements it has added on top of Android.

The handset will feature the same 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED display (dubbed ColorBoost in the PR), and the 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording makes a return. A microSD card slot is present for cards up to 32GB, and HSDPA, WiFi b/g/n, and Bluetooth radios are all onboard. The RAZR V will be running Ice Cream Sandwich when it ships, along with Motorola's software customizations.

Those include Smart Actions, which allows you to personalize the phone and perform certain functions when triggers are activated, and a Battery Extender that turns off non-critical functions when you're starting to run low on juice. Motorola says the phone should be available in Q3 from Bell Mobility, Best Buy, Future Shop, Tbooth Wireless, The Mobile Shop, The Source, Videotron, Virgin Mobile, WIND Mobile, and WIRELESSWAVE. There's no word on pricing yet, however.
