Today Motorola Mobility announced a new phone the Droid Razor. Yes they brought back probably one of their most popular brand of phones. Though I got to say when I look at the phone it dose not really scream Razor. Its more like a Droid that is a little bit thinner then their other phones. Im surprised they didn’t call it the sliver since this is not a flip phone. Though I can’t say much since I have only seen photos of it from the press release they sent me.
If you look at the image its thin but I just don’t feel like it should be called the Razor. It will be out in early November for $299.99. It seems to have all the specs that any Android phone should have at this point.

Im a little shocked that is will not be an Ice Cream Sandwich phone (Android 4.0) since they announced it today. I have e-mailed motorola but I have not herd back as of this time October 18, 2011 11:49 PM.
Some of the things that comes with this phone such as the Quickoffice and remote remote wipe make me think they want to appeal to businesses to make this a work phone as well as a toy.
I would kind of like to see this phone up close and hold it and see how it feels. When it comes out I might have to go over to the Verizon Store and take a look at it. But it is nice to know that the Razor brand is not dead.
