Motorola DROID RAZR M is announced – compact, 4.3-inch Android, with Kevlar body and $99 price tag
It is here, folks! After leaking several times on the internet over the past few days, the Motorola DROID RAZR M has been made official at the Motorola and Verizon On Display event. Think of it as the DROID RAZR HD's little brother. What we have on our hands is a pretty compact Android smartphone with a spacious qHD screen, beefy battery, and premium design. At the same time, it is priced quite reasonably, to say the least. Do we have your attention already?

Then here is what you need to know about the Motorola DROID RAZR M: first of all, it comes with an edge-to-edge, almost bezel-less 4.3-inch display with qHD resolutin (540 by 960 pixels). The panel is built using Super AMOLED Advanced technology, much like what we had on the very first DROID RAZR. Processing power is delivered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and backed up by 1GB of RAM - a hardware combo that is identical to what makes the DROID RAZR HD tick. There is an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash on its back, and a VGA cam up front for video chats.

The device itself is only 8.3 millimeters thick and weighs 126 grams. Despite that, Motorola has managed to tuck a rather generous 2,000mAh battery inside the DROID RAZR M, with which users should expect getting about 20 hours of mixed usage. And if that is not enough, the smartphone's screen is protected by Gorilla Glass, and its back is reinforced using Kevlar elements. As you might expect, the Motorola DROID RAZR M can fly on Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is what comes pre-installed, but an update to Jelly  Bean should be out before the holidays.

So how do you get one? Well, anyone who is interested can pre-order the Motorola DROID RAZR M today, or just wait until it hits the shelves at the carrier's retail stores next week. Pricing is set at $99 with your signature under a 2-year contract.
