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?...

Yeah, but what about its internal memory?

Probably 8 gigs, just like the Photon Q and Atrix HD.

Yea, it's 8GB internal. It's listed on the specifications page.

Seems decent, but...why come out with another RAZR of similar type? Do something different, something definitely above the razr and razr maxx - do not be like APPLE, where your next model looks an awful like the previous model interms of specs and appearance.

1. it is a refinement of an already good base product. so in incremental update is reasonable. there are people out there that werent elegible for upgrade but wanted the razr. now that they are elegible they can get the great phone they want with out all off the rough corners that the predecessor has.

2 besides incremental changes allow for EFFECIENT bug fixes and updates with out causing a new infestation.

3. they are owned by Google NOW. but motorola which owned them wholy PRIOR, has a HUGE base of loyal fans so a huge over haul in this turbulent time could be disasterous and while it could bring a new crowd but could turn away hordes of fans. it will be a slow change

3 new models for Verizon, 0 for other carriers.

I think Motorola may be making things hard for itself by putting out so many verizon exclusive models. What if Motorola's phones dont end up being hits, due to the new iphone or the 1080p HTC phone or others like the intuition or galaxy s3, etc.

They should be smart about it and do like samsung and make the phones for every carrier, at least for their flagships. Its easier to maintain brand loyalty if you dont play favorites with carriers.

I agree, I wish they wouldn't keep throwing all of their best efforts onto Verizon. The Atrix HD and Photon Q would be awesome choices if they didn't have such s**tty internal memory. If they threw flagships onto the other carriers they would be kings of the mobile world again.

However, Verizon seems to have some sort of death grip on them, which I can't fathom. No other manufacturer is as dependent on a single carrier as Motorola.

This all seems kind of familiar with the HTC One Series. Mainly because of the their three top phones being the One X, One S, and the One V in that order. So because of this I could see the Razr M going to some of the prepaid carriers who are rolling out their LTE networks like Metro PCS, Cricket, and C Spire.

you know the Razr M is better than the One S right?

Yes I agree I was just trying say that the Razr M might get the same carrier support as the One S.
