The Droid RAZR is a next-generation update to the old Motorola flip phone.
Everything old is new again. On Tuesday, Motorola introduced the Droid RAZR, a much-upgraded version of the clamshell flip phone of yore. According to Motorola, the new RAZR – pronounced "razor" – will get a frame that's only 7.1 millimeters thick, strengthened with kevlar fibers and kitted out with a Gorilla Glass display. "Diamond-cut" metal accents grace the corners of the handset, and the whole thing gets a coating of splash-resistant finish.
In fact, if the Droid RAZR press release could be boiled down to two words, it would read something like this: "Strong, thin." But the internals aren't bad either, from the dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, to the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS. There's also the obligatory camera – 8-megapixel, with video capability – and a big and bright 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen.
