Motorola RAZR now available from Rogers for $149.99 with 3-year contract
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.

In know this isn't on topic, but does anyone know what happened to the Sony Tablet P? I know I'm not the only one waiting for it. On topic: Nice bargain! but 3 years :( It will be obsolete this time next year.

They have 1 and 2 year agreements on most carriers but the phone price jumps to like $400 on 2 year and $500 for 1 year.

Please Please Please USA, don't EVER adopt a 3yr subsidization schedule. Mobile market moves WAY too fast to be stuck with a 3yr old device.

I'm kind of curious how that works, because in the U.S. it's a 2-yr contract but often times upgrade eligibilties come up again before the contract actually ends (thus never giving the customer a chance to actually be out of contract). So with a 3-yr contract, is the upgrade date at the end of the 3 years or before then? That way, people wouldn't have to wait 3 years and Rogers would constantly be having people in contract.

The HUP date falls 2 years after you sign your contract. 3 year contracts blow and I wish the Great White North would move with the times. ):

US should offer 18-month contracts like other EU countries.

My next phone. Is Canada seriously the only country that does 3-year contracts? And here you guys in America are complaining...
