Motorola unveils the Razr mobile phone


as the world’s thinnest handset

Google recently acquired Motorola Mobility company has launched the Android based thin Razr phone, with a 7.1mm thickness, a tough screen and robustness unseen in other devices.

Motorola’s Razr is the mobile phone manufacturer’s first handset to carry the Razr name since 2008, only without a clamshell design and in a regularly found smartphone form factor.

The Razr arrives with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, with a Corning gorilla sculpted glass face and diamond-cut aluminium accents. The handset has Kevlar fibre integrated, to help the screen cope with scratches and scrapes, with a splash-guard coating and even on the electrical boards inside.

The phone is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and support for 32GB microSD cards, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p HD video recording whilst running from the Android 2.3.5 OS.

Motorola’s Razr now claims the crown of the world’s thinnest phone, taking the title away from the Sony Ericsson arc which has a thickness of 8.7mm, at its thinnest point.

The device can also be turned into a laptop, in much the same way as the Motorola Atrix and Atrix 2 with the aid of the Motorola Lapdock accessory.

The Motorola Razr will be available this November, in North America, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa although no prices have been unveiled as yet.
