Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition "not for the faint at heart'

Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition
Motorola is now offering the Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition which is says is "not for the faint at heart". The phone looks exactly like the Motorola DROID RAZR M, including the edge-to-edge screen that the manufacturer is playing up in its ads for the device. Inside, well, again the Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition is just about a carbon copy of the`original model. The only difference is that inside the Developer Edition is an unlocked bootloader.

If you love to play around with your Motorola DROID RAZR M, install custom ROMs, or if you want to root your handset, the Developer Edition makes it happen. But just because Motorola is offering the phone with an unlocked bootloader doesn't mean that you won't lose your warranty if you take advantage of  it. Make sure you know what you're doing because otherwise you could end up with an inoperable device. And priced at $549.99, that would be quite an expensive brick to have purchased.

The only thing Motorola need to improve in their phones is the quality of pics and videos in their phones. Other than that they have pretty good phones.

I agree because I loved my atrix but the camera was not on point at all.

Ive taken pictures with the RAZR M next to my RAZR and mine has a greenish haze in them and the M camera does not. It honestly is the first motorola camera that is good enough for me.

Something i was waiting for very very long time. Edge to edge display. Happy to see someone finally coming up with it. for me this is revolutionary. So where is apple's wow factor with their iPhone 5?

Stupid me. Noticed only now. No physical home button. Niiiceee. That is the future. Thinking of that more looks like this could be my next phone. Samsung S3, Nokia lumia 920, Motorola Droid.... Yay... So many choices, yet muppets still choose to go for iPhone 5. Which one should i go for and why?

S3 because its just a solid monster phone. Lumia 920 because its different and kinda stylish. Motarola droid line because it'll be built like a tank. (Downside is that kevlar back is way not stylish. ) But let's be real, you'd be happy no matter which you choose.

Am I alone in the boat that thinks the kevlar looks (and feels) fantastic?

I love the way the kevlar on the razr feels but i think it looks cheesy. like ubermacho or something.

I'd personally go with the Razr HD Maxx. It has a better form factor than the S3 and it looks a lot nicer, IMO. The cameras may not be as good, and there's not physical home button. Just wait and you will see. The battery will outclass everything else.

Hello @phonearena, will the developer edition of RAZR M work on T-Mobile after unlocking the boot loader?

And also will it work outside the US?
