While Verizon will be launching the Motorola DROID RAZR at 11:11 am on 11/11 for $299.99 with a 2-year pact
, Canadian carrier Rogers is offering the non-U.S., GSM version of the phone-the Motorola RAZR-starting today for $149.99 with a signed 3-year contract. Up north in Canada, a three-year lock up is traditional.
The Motorola RAZR, like the DROID RAZR, carries a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP processor and a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED advanced qHD screen made of Gorilla Glass. 1GB of RAM is aboard with an 8MP camera capturing video at 1080p and a 1.3MP front-facing shooter for self portraits and video chat. 16GB of native storage is on the phone. The Kevlar coated back brings a unique look to the device which is coated to protect the handset from splashes
of liquid. Android 2.3.5 is pre-installed and like the DROID RAZR, Ice Cream Sandwich will be on board
once everything is in place for the OTA update.
Unlike the LTE connectivity available on Verizon's CDMA variant of the phone, Rogers version is a GSM model that offers download speeds up to 14.4Mbps over HSPA.
