Motorola DROID RAZR officially up for pre-order at Verizon
You have probably heard all that there is to hear about the Motorola DROID RAZR by now. It has a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display and is powered by a zippy 1.2GHz dual-core processor as well as 1GB of RAM. The back of the DROID RAZR houses an 8 megapixel camera that can record video in full 1080p HD. Around the front side of the smartphone is a 1.3 megapixel shooter to help you in all of your video chatting needs over Verizon’s impressively fast 4G LTE network.
The back of the DROID RAZR is made of Kevlar and the front has a splash-guard screen that is also made of gorilla glass. The body of the device is made out of stainless steel core which will make this device feel quite solid to hold. The RAZR moniker is a very fitting one as Motorola claims it is the thinnest smartphone in the world, measuring at only 7.1mm. However, the trade off to the ultra-slim body is a sealed battery that cannot be removed by the user.
While this handset is shipping with Android Gingerbread on-board, Motorola made it clear that it will update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future. They are promising some extravagant battery life so if their claims of 12.5 hours of talk time are anywhere close to being accurate then this device is truly the total package. Hurry on over to Verizon before the pre-orders are gone. You can pick yourself up a Motorola DROID RAZR for the price of $299.99 with a two-year agreement.

The biggest upgrade that is not mentioned is a move away from the horrible pentile displays in the DX2 and Bionic. I say that as an owner of the DX2, a DInc2 and an iPhone 4S. The DX2 is one of the most pixelated displays I have ever seen.

I agree, coming from a Droid 3. I can't believe they tried to force it on us, rationalizing, "it doesn't look that bad." That should never be a justification for a new product.

qHD or HD?
One thing I will miss moving to the Nexus is ZumoCast. That is some really convenient software.

You can bill to your account by ordering over the phone....so I've heard. By the time I read that tip I already used my card.

yeah I had to pay upfront too, the lady told me I would have it by the middle of next week at the latest. I thought it wasn't till the 10th anyone else get told this?

i'm pretty sure everything this morning just said "will ship by 11/10".... that leaves the door open for any release date they want. the iphone is released already and if you want to order one it states "will ship by......" as well.

When I placed my order at around 9 a.m. Pacific, the order confirmation stated will ship by 11/10/2011. I then tried calling Customer Care, and they didn't have any more precise information. Also, my credit card didn't get hit, so they won't be shipping for at least a day or so.

When I ordered (9 a.m. Pacific), VZW was still processing pre-orders.

Don't do it don't pre-order. wait till it comes out and then buy if you like it. I am going to return my Bionic for the Prime. Make sure it works for you before you buy.
