Canada's Bell rings in the Motorola RAZR V
Amazing what has happened in the smartphone industry in just one year. Specs that would have been seen on top-shelf models are now available on low-priced entry level devices. Take the Motorola RAZR V which is launching today for Canada's Bell. It is equipped with a 4.3 inch screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and an 8MP camera. Just 8.3mm thick (thin?), the handset has that iconic Kevlar bulletproof back. And Android 4.0 comes installed on the Motorola RAZR V right out of the box.

t wouldn't have been so long ago that a 4.3 inch screen would have been the ceiling. Actually, you could have called it a glass ceiling (what do you want, it's Friday). Now, the range is 4 inches to 5.3 and that might be expanded when the Samsung GALAXY Note 2 brings a 5.5 inch screen to the table on August 29th. The dual-core era also seemed to go by in a blink.

Anyway, we need to interrupt this visit down memory lane to tell you that with a 3-year contract, the Motorola RAZR V is just $29.95 from Bell. You can also purchase the phone outright for $399.95. For a new convert to the world of smartphones, this would make a great handset.

See this is what I was talking about in a different post....This phone has all the sweet spot specs, BUT i guareentee you that 1.2 ghz processor is not a snapdragon S4 and the battery just may not be removable....All I'm saying is, If im going to pay 400-600 dollars for a phone, it better not be outdated and it better have all the right things to last you at least another year and half before branded "outdated"....

The fact this is only $400 outright would be pretty sweet if it is compatible with any US carriers.

The one differentiating them the most is the user interface, for those who enjoy their respective UI, they will go for the respective manufacturer

You can easily get around the stock UI.
