Following the launch of the iPhone 4S, Motorola could use a winning smartphone right about now and perhaps their about to get one. Due to launch in November for $299 the new Droid RAZR provides a 4.3-inch AMOLED display wrapped in Gorilla Glass (resolution 960 x 540) and a dual-core CPU at a clock speed of 1.2Ghz. Measuring a super slim 0.28 inches in thickness and less almost a quarter of a pound in weight, it certainly makes for a neat and tidy handset in your pocket. The 8MP rear camera will provide excellent still image quality and 1080p video. There is also a front facing 1.3MP camera if video chatting is your thing. In terms of Software you’ll find Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed and a custom Droid Bionic-style UI.
Your mulitmedia needs will certainly be met with support for a wide range of video and audio codecs included such as MP3, AAC, AAC+, WMA, WAV, AMR, MIDI, MPEG4, H.264 and WMV. The built-in sensors include A-GPS, S-GPS and Glonass (a Russian alternative to the U.S. GPS system). Of course you’ll also find an accelerometer and compass along with micro-HDMI, MicroSD and SDHC expansion ports so you can increase the phones storage. The battery offers up a competitive 12.5 hours of 3G talk time. As if to answer Apple’s iCloud feature, Motorola have included their own cloud storage service called MotoCast. The Motorola Droid RAZR will be available to pre-order from Verizon on October 27th with an official release expected some time in November.
