Motorola Mobility Reveals Motorola RAZR™: Impossibly Thin Meets Head-turning Innovation

Slick design and features with wow factor, available from Motorola Mobility in Europe

BERLIN – Oct. 19, 2011– Say hello to the jaw-dropping new Motorola RAZR™, brought to you by Motorola Mobility. Impossibly thin and lightweight, this smartphone is loaded with sexy curves. Boasting a gorgeous sculpted glass face, diamond-cut aluminum accents and a hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display for incredibly vivid images, Motorola RAZR also sports KEVLAR® fiber (yes, that KEVLAR) and Corning® Gorilla® Glass to help the screen stand up to scratches and scrapes. In fact, every part of Motorola RAZR is protected by a splash-guard coating – even the electrical boards inside. Motorola RAZR will be available in Europe starting in November.

While they’re still dazzled by the outside, hit them with what’s on the inside. A cool 1GB of RAM hooks up with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android™ 2.3.5 to get you a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. Rock your playlists while you check your email, breeze through photos—all at the same time, without delay. Motorola RAZR comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast™ app1, giving you the power to stream or download content from your home or work computer straight to your device so your personal content is always within reach. Watch movies on a screen that sports a wider range of colors than most LCD HDTVs. And when you’re tired of watching (as if), use the cinematic-quality front-facing 720p HD video camera and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with even sharper 1080p HD video capture to create your own movies —all with image-stabilization technology to turn your life into art without breaking a sweat.

“With the new Motorola RAZR we have re-imagined an icon, it’s an impossibly thin smartphone with mind-blowing power that Europeans will want to show off,” says Ralf Gerbershagen, vice president and general manager, Mobile Devices Europe, Motorola Mobility. “Thinner than your friends’ smartphone, it’s better looking too. We know our customers will be lining up to have the next generation Motorola RAZR – it’s the most captivating Android-powered smartphone on the scene.”

Work Smart, Not Hard

Government-grade encryption protects your email, contacts and calendar so you are business ready. Even your strict IT manager will be impressed. Work smart with Smart Actions – a preloaded app on Motorola RAZR that that lets you automate everyday tasks and enable better battery life. Smart Actions can turn down the ringer when you step into work, change the Bluetooth and GPS settings when you get home to save battery, or send a text to someone if you miss their call – letting you focus more on what’s actually important.

Accessories that bring a whole new universe to life

Motorola RAZR is powerful on its own but when combined with Motorola’s accessories, you unleash a world of possibilities.

Work hard, play hard! With the Motorola RAZR Work and Play kit, plug the device into the HD Multimedia Station to connect to your HDTV, speakers and other peripherals for large-screen entertainment. Sit back and use the included keyboard and mouse with Bluetooth technology to make the most of Motorola’s revolutionary webtop application, giving you the power to edit documents and browse the Web with a full Firefox browser. The new Smart Controller lets you take control of your content on the big screen, all while keeping your calls within reach when your phone is docked. Out and about? Why not use the new sleek and lightweight Motorola Lapdock™ 500 Pro with a built-in keyboard and 14” HD resolution screen, Lapdock 500 Pro looks like a slim laptop, but only comes to life when you dock your Motorola RAZR. Watch movies, edit documents, video chat with the built-in webcam and browse the web with the full Firefox browser. Need something smaller? The Motorola Lapdock 100 gives you all the same cloud computing capability but in a smaller and more compact size with its 10.1″ screen. You’ll have the brains, brawn and beauty to make the impossible possible.

Motorola RAZR is coming to countries across Europe starting in November. For more information visit www.motorola.com

      1GB is the highest a mount of RAM found any any mobile device outside of a laptop.

      You are talking about storage space though which this device has 32GB.

      Qee? 1gb is the RAM, it has 16gb Memory:http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-DROID-RAZR_id6026 with mico SD slot

      On another not, if this one isn’t getting ICS till early 2012…. and Motorola is nearly in bed with Google, not much hope for SE or HTC devices… since I assume now they are close Motorola devices will run the vanilla version, so not much tweaking to do and still takes 2 months?

    This being a Motorola phone though the upgrade is unlikely to arrive in early 2012. I bought the Arrix in May on the understanding that it would soon be updated to Gingerbread – it’s still running Froyo though! The new Nexus is by far the better bet, especially with a few of the networks already announcing that they will carry it.

    Its nice to see moto getting back to doing what they do best- innovating. They’ve been bold with this, look at the materials! The name smacks of desperation. I had the original Razr V3 and it was cutting edge, laser etched keypad, acid washed glass display all engineering firsts on a mobile phone. Its such a shame they’ve lost their way with a CEO that clearly knows nothing about the current smartphone market. The sooner Google get him out the sooner I’ll buy another Motorola. This used to be the Mercedes of the mobile market under Jha they are now the 5th yes 5th largest smartphone manufacturer. It goes to show patents in the wrong hands or wrong CEO account for nothing.

      I made a mistake they’re not even in the top 6 now!
