Motorola RAZR hands-on video

RAZR There have been a few devices from Motorola to bare the name RAZR over the years but this latest offering from Moto is, in fact, a sweet looking Android touch-screen slab.

The Motorola RAZR, also know as the Motorola Droid RAZR (in the US), is a brand new super-thin Android phone that not only offers a solid build and stylish design, but a range of powerful features and accessories.

Measuring just 7.1mm in thickness, the Motorola RAZR is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market. Slimmer than the Samsung Galaxy S II and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, which are slim handsets anyway.

So keen were Motorola to make the RAZR special, they have in fact made the back of the device with Kevlar (the material in bulletproof vests) fibre, to keep size and weight to a minimum but increase strength and rigidity in the phone. So that is the back protected, what about the front? Well Corning Gorilla Glass protects the Super AMOLED Advanced screen that sits below it. Super strong, this glass will protect the device against scratches and scrapes that would normally damage any other display.

Oh, and in case that was not enough, they have coated the RAZR with a nano technology which makes the device splash-proof. Spill water, coffee, beer or out in the rain the device will resist all of these. (Please note, the RAZR is not waterproof and is not designed for immersion in water. Ports are exposed and have no covers).

Pleasing to the eye, the RAZR is also extremely powerful. An evolution of Motorola’s other dual-core device, the Motorola ATRIX, the lightening fast Motorola RAZR rocks a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and with 1GB of RAM, it really does pack a powerful punch.

So what else is special about this top of the range superphone? It comes with a stunning display – 4.3" Super AMOLED Advanced with a 960 x 540 resolution. It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G capability, an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording and a front facing camera for video calling.

Lots of features often equals a lot of power use, but with the RAZR, there is a massive 1780mAh battery that will ensure it lasts the whole working day (on average) – all of this in a device 7.1mm thick!

Record HD video content with the 8 megapixel camera in 1080p content. Sit your device in a HD dock (sold separatley) and control it using a wireless keyboard and mouse or Smart Controller (sold separately) and watch the content back on a HD display.

This new phone from Motorola runs Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) Operating System but will be compatible with the new version of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). However, not only does it offer the latest features of the Android operating system, but a range of features that have been developed by Motorola specifically for its own handsets.
