DROID RAZR™ Available this Friday: 11-11-11
The all new DROID RAZR™ will be available at Phone & Wireless locations this Friday November 11th – just in time to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the original DROID by Motorola.
The Motorola DROID RAZR features top-of-the-line specs, and it somehow fits it all into one of the thinnest and lightest smartphone cases around – a slim 7.1 millimeters thin. Features include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, an LED flash, 1.3 front-facing camera for video chat, an HDMI-out port, noise cancellation capabilities, 16GB of built-in storage and a 16GB microSD card pre-installed.
Reviews from popular tech sites report that touch-sensitivity on the handset is “excellent and incredibly responsive”, and the whole package is protected by a rugged construction of Gorilla Glass and a metal case with Kevlar backing.
In response to the common complaint that smart phones eat up battery life too quickly, a new software feature to address this is included on the RAZR – Motorola’s Smart Actions app. Smart Actions lets you specify different actions for your phone to automatically perform based on locations. For instance, if you don’t use Bluetooth when you’re at home, you can set the RAZR to turn that function off whenever you arrive at your home address.
Besides being location based, you can also set these actions on parameters like when the phone reaches a certain battery percentage. One of the suggested configurations is to have your display dim, turn off GPS, and turn off background syncing when your phone’s battery is at 20% or lower. Motorola claims that using Smart Actions can extend your battery life by up to 30%.
The DROID RAZR also offers government-grade encryption for email, contacts and calendar, voice and video conferencing, which may be particularly appealing for business use.
The Motorola DROID RAZR will be available at Phone & Wireless locations this Friday, November 11th at for $299.99 on contract with Verizon Wireless. Verizon is offering a limited time promotion for those activating new 4G smartphones, including the RAZR. Sign up for the 2GB monthly data plan for $30, and receive the 4GB data plan – double your data.
Another great incentive: Verizon Wireless said in a press release today that DROID RAZR customers can enjoy access to NFL Mobile at no additional cost for the remainder of the season.
