We know that those of you who pre-ordered the Motorola DROID RAZR will have it shipped out to you “no later than” November 10th, but the company has been mum on when Verizon customers would be able to but the phone at retail. Until now, anyway: Verizon has confirmed that the DROID RAZR will be available in retail stores on Thursday, November 10th. The phone should be available nationwide.
Nothing has changed since pre-orders began rolling out. The RAZR will still cost a full $299 (no mail-in-rebates to be found) on a two-year contract, or a whopping $649 free and clear. We haven’t heard anything to suggest that the initial stock is running low, so if you declined a pre-order and want to get your instant gratification on, feel free to mozy on into your Local Verizon Wireless store next week. But keep in mind, both the Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound are coming soon at the same price, and the former at least won’t have the DROID RAZR’s locked bootloader and non-removable battery.
Strangely, our neighbors to the north will get the Motorola RAZR (the DROID RAZR’s de-branded cousin) almost a week earlier, on November the 4th. If you live in Canada and are at the end of your Rogers contract, you can sign up for a new 3-year deal and get the RAZR for a mere $150. If you opt for non-contract pricing, it’ll be the same $649 price tag.
