Motorola Droid RAZR: Thinnest of All. Kevlar. Splashproof. Yes.

By Adrian Covert on at

After crashing and burning in a blaze of mediocrity, the once-legendary RAZR lineage has a new successor. The Droid RAZR is a 4G LTE, 1.2 GHz dual-core-CPU-powered, kevlar-constructed wafer of a phone that protects against water.

The Droid RAZR is only 7.1mm thick (although it has significantly thicker bump at the bottom), making it the thinnest of its kind. It also has 1GB RAM, 12.5 hours of talk time on thanks to an 1800 mAh battery, 8 megapixel camera (with 1080p recording), a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display strengthened with Gorilla Glass and Kevlar fiber, which makes it strong and light weight. But the real gem here is that all parts of the phone — even the electronics — have been coated in a water-resistant material, which will help guard against spills and the elements. 

There's also an added bonus for road warriors, as the Droid RAZR will dock with Moto's webtop (just like the Atrix 4G), and the MOTOACTV, a smartwatch that can sync with the Droid RAZR for on-the-fly updates and functionality.

From what we can tell, the Droid RAZR like a faster version of the Droid Bionic. Sadly though, there's no mention of Ice Cream Sandwich as the Android OS powering the Droid RAZR: it is instead running Gingerbread. [Moto Liveblog]
