Motorola Droid Razr Is World’s Thinnest Phone [Updated]

Motorola has launched its latest assault on the smartphone

market with the world’s thinnest handset, the Droid Razr.

At just 7.1mm thin and weighing just 127g, the Droid Razr, as

it will be known in the US, certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to narrowness and portability,

but at what cost? Well, not much it seems.

Despite its svelte figure, the Droid Razr packs in a 1.2GHz

dual-core processor, 1GB or RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and a 4.3in super

AMOLED advanced QHD display (960×540). It also has an eight megapixel camera on the rear, capable of

capturing 1080p video, as well as a front facing camera.

According to Motorola, the phone has been built on top of a

stainless steel core and will easily “withstand the famous back pocket test.”

It also has scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass and a Kelvar coating on the

back to help protect it from accidental drops and a spill resistant coating has also been applied.

Most impressive of all however could be the 1800mAh battery

which promises 12.5 hours of talktime and nine hours of video playback which,

if true, would be a huge selling point for this phone considering all the

negative press the iPhone 4S battery is getting at the moment.

The Droid Razr will run Android 2.3.5 when it is launched

next month though an upgrade to the newly announced Android 4.0 may not be too far off considering Google’s recent purchase of Motorola Mobility.

At the launch, CEO of Motorola Mobility, Sanday Jha, said:

“We wanted to create a true object of desire. Not only is it a marvel of modern

engineering, it is beautiful.”

Adding further functionality will be the inclusion of WebTop,

which will allow you to slide the phone into the docks already available for

the Atrix.

The original Razr phone was launched back in the

pre-smartphone days of 2004 and at the time was a radical new design which put

Motorola on the mobile phone map. It went on to sell 130 million units and a

repeat of that feat would certainly be welcome by Motorola.

The Droid Razr will go on pre-order on 27 October in the US

costing $250 (8GB) or $300 (16GB) with a November release date. There has been no word from Motorola

yet regarding a UK release or even availability.

If the handset does cross the Atlantic (and we certainly

hope it does) then we would expect a name change to possibility the Motorola

Razr or the Motorola Spyder.

Does the Droid Razr get you all excited or do you think it’s

just too thin? Let us know in the comments.

Update: Online retailer Clove has publishing UK pricing for the phone it’s calling the Motorola Razr (Spyder) and it ain’t cheap. The phone will cost £454.80 including VAT with the handset due to be available on 1 November.
