Verizon Wireless has started sending out emailed announcements saying preorders for the ultra-thin Android smartphone, the Motorola DROID RAZR, will start on October 27 (that’s tomorrow) at exactly 8:00 A.M. The same email reminders also mention that orders of the DROID RAZR will start shipping “no later” than November 10.
A minimum advertised price (MAP) list reportedly coming from Verizon had been leaked earlier, and the list showed October 27 as the effective start date of the minimum advertised price for the Motorola DROID RAZR. Starting tomorrow, customers can start preordering the Motorola DROID RAZR for $300 with a two-year Verizon contract.
Motorola and Verizon have been unabashedly capitalizing on the DROID RAZR’s reportedly ultra-thin body and ultra-strong construction. It is said to be 7.7 millimeters at its thinnest point, and its body is protected by Kevlar coating.
With the powerful tandem of Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, and buoyed by 1 GB of RAM, Android apps will definitely run smooth as butter on the Motorola DROID RAZR’s 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD touchscreen display.
However, if this device does not make Verizon customers’ eyes sparkle, then maybe the other two upcoming Android smartphones might. Rumored for release on Verizon on November 10, the Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound look like powerful alternatives to the DROID RAZR.
Samsung and Google had already officially announced the Galaxy Nexus, while HTC has an upcoming media event slated for November 3 which we believe will be the occasion for launching the HTC Rezound (also called the HTC Vigor). The same leaked MAP list suggests November 10 as the release date for the Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound.
Whichever of these three powerful Android smartphones you pick, no doubt it would be a perfect choice.
