Motorola RAZR lands in the UK

Motorola RAZR lands in the UKIf you're thinking of going all retro and going for a classic Mororola RAZR, you can get 'em on eBay cheap as chips. But as of right now if you fancy Motorola's all-new RAZR reboot you're also in luck, as Moto's latest flagship skinny mini has arrived in the UK.

What's more, you won't even struggle to get one with the likes of Expansys, Clove and Amazon all showing it as in stock for a not-unreasonable one-off payment of around £450, give or take a couple of pence.

And if you can't face coughing up all that dough this close to Christmas, you can even go down the contract route with both Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse stores claiming to have it on pay-monthly details for around £31 a month.

The RAZR boasts a Kevlar splash-proof chassis with Gorilla Glass screen and a 4.3in Super AMOLED qHD touchscreen.

On the inside, it has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, along with an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p video capture. Moto is also quite proud of its new handset's battery life, which should dish up 12.5 hours of talk time and 8.9 hours of video viewing.

And although it only comes with Gingerbread, Moto has slipped up and admitted Ice Cream Sandwich will be available soon in the US. And since we can't see Blighty being left off the upgrade list, you're fairly well future-proofed too.

We have to say: this is how you launch a product successfully. No wild claims (like the Atrix and its "world's most powerful smartphone" schtick), no huge marketing ploys to get everyone excited followed by the inevitable disappointment of struggling to find stock - just good old fashioned shipping it out and getting it in consumers' hands pronto. Not so much "Hello Moto" but more "Well done, Moto."
