Motorola RAZR making a comeback?

Motorola RAZR making a comeback?

The RAZR was arguably Motorola's most successful line ever. Everywhere you looked in 2005, somebody had one. Then came the black, the blue, the shocking pink, the D&G gold, the V3i, the V3x etc.

But Moto clearly misses the influence it once had - so it's looking to bring back the RAZR line, and it could be with us in just a week's time on October 18.

We are speculating, but it's all based on a teaser video from Moto HQ which tells us a new device is being announced on that date. And with constant references to razor blades, plus it being faster and thinner, there's only one conclusion we can really draw.

Then, of course, there's the pics leaked to This Is My Next which almost give the game away completely.

The screen is said to be 4.5in across with an 8MP camera packed on the back. Processor-wise, we're expecting to see a dual-core 1.2GHz chip and 1GB of RAM. Gorilla Glass is also mooted which is just as well as we imagine any smartphone as thin as a RAZR is likely to be pretty fragile.

The question remains what the phone will be called in the UK - the names of Motorola Droid HD and Motorola Spyder have been mooted by some, with the latter making the most sense for us Brit-dwellers, given our apathy to the Droid moniker.

Either way, just a week to go. October is shaping up to be a very exciting month indeed.

Anyway, you can check out the video for yourself below - Motorola clearly thinks a lot about this phone given one of the 'clues' is that it will answer the meaning of life.

Always thought the original RAZR was overrated. Liked the fatter, sturdy KRZR but they were just fashion phones to me. Shame as MOTO had been middling for a while until recently when they produced a serious of strong but unpopular phones. Their problem does seem to be marketing, so maybe a bit of retro branding will work to boost them?
