sober black, flashy white and baffling purple color options for the DROID RAZR, and Verizon has just confirmed it for us. You can find the blue DROID RAZR in select stores now (so select that we have no idea where they are) or wait until May 17th for nationwide availability and online sales.

sober black, flashy white and flamboyant purple aren't enough for you, then perhaps something a little more conservative will convince you to buy a new Motorola DROID RAZR. Yet another hue was spotted in a Verizon internal website, indicating that the blue version of the phone would be coming out on May 18th for $149.99, on contract of course. That'll make the DROID RAZR the most color-varied smartphone out there at the moment.
Droid Does campaign fondly: it kicked off with Motorola's original DROID and was instrumental in giving Android a leg up on iOS in the United States in 2009. While the Droid Does campaign continued with the likes of the HTC DROID Incredible and others, it seemed to disappear from the airwaves once Verizon got its hands on the iPhone 4. Now it's back, showing off the DROID 4, DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX from Motorola.
DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX still haven't received Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich -- officially at least. While we've seen various documents suggesting the update is coming soon, including the testing schedule leaked yesterday, we now have what could be the final Ice Cream Sandwich build. It has leaked and will be available soon.
HTC Rezound, Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX got something of a false alarm a few weeks ago, when Best Buy claimed that these Verizon phones were getting Ice Cream Sandwich updates. The upgrade days came and went, but Verizon, Motorola and HTC remained steadfast that they'd be updated... eventually. Now an internal Verizon screenshot shows that the RAZRs' testing period will end on May 17th, and the Rezound will end even sooner, on May 7th.
over at XDA have found that Motorola's recent hardware for Verizon features global GSM roaming bands (not unlike the HTC Rezound). With a little hacking, they found that these LTE devices could accept SIM card from AT&T and T-Mobile, making them transferable to a huge portion of American carrier customers.
Verizon are having some issues with that Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update we've been waiting for, and even saw leaked earlier this month. After announcing a soak test, then seeing the update leaked, it appears to be canceled or put on hold as they are now pushing an update to both devices -- only this is still Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX are downright handy if you're looking to maximize your phone's longevity. Unfortunately, those two phones (and their international counterparts) are the only ones that get the privilege. But with some modding and a little elbow grease, Twitter user Dan Davis managed to modify the app so that it runs on the DROID Bionic as well.
Motorola DROID RAZR launch announcement was the fact that despite Moto's commitment to more open bootloaders, the flagship phone would be locked down just like previous Motorola-Verizon devices. Even after considerable customer backlash and unlocking the bootloader on the international GSM RAZR, not to mention the fact that both Samsung and HTC have provided unlocked bootloaders for their own Verizon phones, Motorola has stood frustratingly firm. Now a pair of modders have found away around the locked bootloader, opening up the possibility for true custom ROMs.
DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX pretty hard over the last few weeks. Leak after leak seemed to indicate that the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update, or a test, or a beta, or something, was just around the corner. Each time we've been thoroughly disappointed when the update either failed to materialize or was immediately denied. Ready for one more glimmer of hope, Motorola owners? Video walkthroughs of the DROID RAZR ROM have made their way to YouTube, complete with the new Ice Cream Sandwich interface.
