internal document from Canadian carrier Rogers says that the Motorola RAZR, the international model of Verizon's DROID RAZR, will be coming to the Great White North this Friday, November 4th. Significantly, that's a week earlier than the November 10th date that Verizon has set to ship DROID RAZR phones to United States customers who pre-ordered. Also headed for Rogers is the Galaxy S Glide, a QWERTY slider that's already been revealed.

DROID RAZR's sexy hardware without tying yourself down with a two-year contract? Nobody said being a free spirit was cheap: the phone will cost $649.99 from Verizon without a new contract or renewal. The news was broken by Droid-Life, who got a look at the DROID RAZR's listing in Verizon's internal device database. All things considered, that's about what we expected for the DROID RAZR. Over in the UK they'll be paying £454.80, or about $716 USD. It's still pretty darn expensive for a smartphone, but not stupendously so, when you consider that the cheapest iPhone 4S is the same price while offering a whole lot less in the hardware department. Kevlar beats glass, in case anyone was wondering. A qHD Super AMOLED screen, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4G LTE data speeds and a 7.7mm frame should make this a hard decision, even with the equally impressive Galaxy Nexus coming soon. The DROID RAZR's introductory price for those of us that toil under contractual obligation is $299.99, and pre-orders begin tomorrow, October 27th. The phone itself will ship "no later than" November 10th. The phone will sell internationally as the "Motorola RAZR", and in most major markets should be available around the same time. So what do you think - too expensive, a bargain or right on the money? Check out our hands-on of the Motorola DROID RAZR: Motorola DROID RAZR hands-on: [vms 9b2541ff53db39f407a9] [device id=1739]
DROID RAZR's November 10th launch date seem to be right on the money, as Verizon has updates its DROID DOES mailing list with the happy news. Pre-orders will begin tomorrow, October 27th at 8 AM Eastern, and the note says that the phones themselves will begin shipping "no later than" the 10th of next month. No mention of retail availability was made, but you can bet that RAZRs will begin showing up in Verizon and partner stores shortly thereafter.
lock the bootloader on its latest flagship device, the DROID RAZR. Though we later learned that international versions of the phone would be user-unlockable, their current and past reliance on custom software and locked bootloaders has been a sore spot with the Android mod community for years. Moto has decided to come clean with a forward-facing new start, instructing curious users to two separate sites for unlocking and upgrading.
Motorola tablet passed through, and now we are seeing a Motorola RAZR headed for AT&T. The Motorola DROID RAZR was announced last week headed for Verizon with 4G LTE and we've also heard a few non US carriers will also get a version of the RAZR as soon as November 1st. Today what appears to be the same RAZR smartphone has just hit the FCC packing AT&T radios, that means the Verizon "DROID" wont be present in this bad boys name.
DROIDDOES.com, what fond memories we have of you. The portal for the original influential DROID campaign is still the go-to destination for Verizon's high-end android phones, so it's altogether appropriate that the Motorola DROID RAZR find itself there. The new site offers a 3D view of the new phone showing off its slim profile, and not much else. Oh, an the Flash-only site is totally inaccessible to certain iDevices that shall remain nameless.
unlockable bootloader. Unfortunately this doesn't apply to United States DROID RAZRs - Motorola is giving carriers the option to disable the unlock feature, and Verizon has jumped on the chance. Just to be clear, the phone is known as the DROID RAZR in the US and the Motorola RAZR elsewhere. Commence your cursing now, Verizon customers.
Motorola DROID RAZR will simply be known as the "Motorola RAZR" in every territory outside the United States, and at least one is getting right in front of the vague "November" launch date set for the phone. According to online retailer Clove, the first stock of Motorola RAZR will be available in the United Kingdom on November 1st. The price is £379 or £454.80 after some expensive Value Added Tax, which comes out to $716 USD.
DROID RAZR was officially announced early yesterday in NYC, along with MotoCast and a few other things. We were live and able to get plenty of hands-on time and you can see it all for yourself right here. Today Motorola has released a few teaser and commercial videos for everyone to drool over while we wait for the phone to hit the shelves come November.
DROID RAZR and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Since Verizon customers at least may soon have to make a hard choice, we've put up a direct comparison between the two devices. Which one will reign supreme at the top of the Android heap?
