Been watching news of the Droid RAZR launch in the States? Feeling jealous? No more, my friend. Motorola is bringing its latest flagship Android device over here too though the 'Droid' moniker will predictably be getting the shove.
Expansys has it on pre-order at £474.99 but as is always the case with them (sorry to say this, Expansys), if you shop around you'll more likely than not find it cheaper elsewhere. The Smartphone Centre has it on its books for £449.95.
The return of the RAZR is certainly a massive deal for Moto. Gone is the clamshell design and fiddly OS. In its place, one of the slimmest Android forms available in the world (just 7.1mm at its thinnest), a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced screen with qHD resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and Gingerbread by default (with a promise yesterday that Ice Cream Sandwich is on the way.)
Motorola reckons the screen is 25% more efficient than the Super AMOLED Plus technology you'll find in the Samsung Galaxy S II's display which is itself not as huge a power guzzler as some handsets. And with a 1,780mAh battery, it's got more grunt than the Sammy too.
Our collective palms are already moistening. Galaxy Nexus? What's that?!
