Motorola's Razr to return as an Android phone
Motorola also said that it will be "the world's thinnest 4G smartphone," at 7.1-millimeters thick.
A 4.3-inch touchscreen is out front while the back of the new Razr will be made of kevlar with an integrated battery -- meaning you can't remove this power pack.
The new Razr also features a front facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 1080p video, a 1.2-gigahertz dual core processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM and 32 gigabytes of storage (16 gigabytes built-in and another 16 gigabytes on an included microSD card).
The rebooted Razr looks nothing like the original line of flip phones that sold millions of units from 2004 to 2007 and still rank among Motorola's biggest mobile gadget hits. But resurrecting the old Razr brand should bring back a bit of nostalgia for what was the last blockbuster seller before smartphones captured consumers' attention with the BlackBerry, the iPhone and later Androids.
The Droid Razr will hit Verizon stores in early November at a price of $300 on a new two-year contract.
