Motorola RAZR coming back hints Lenovo CEO

One of the most popular handsets in the history of the cellphone, Motorola sold 50 million RAZR flip phones between 2004 and 2006. Anyone who was anyone had to have the device. While there were smartphones around, it wasn't until the next year, when Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced something called the Apple iPhone (you might have heard of it) that the smartphone revolution began in earnest. Intelligent handsets soared in popularity, marking the end of the RAZR...

Everyone who was anyone had to have the Razr. Well, I guess I wasn't anyone, I never had one, never cared for it. Anti-trendy type. When everyone was jumping on board the iPhone, couple years later I got a Dell Streak 5, because I wanted a bigger screen. The looks and laughs I received never bothered me. Now, pretty much everyone has "a big screen".

Though I lived Moto back in the day, I never wanted a Razr. Had the Droid Razr Maxx though.

I remember people get envious when you have a RAZR phone. This is the phone that everyone wants to buy but not everyone can afford. I just realized phones nowadays look like a slab of chocolate bar and nothing more. Nokia, Motorola and Sony-Ericsson have unique styles and you can't compare one to another and features are oh so different.

"Anyone who was anyone had to have the device." Until The iPhone came around and blew everything out of the water. Every phone, and I mean EVERY SINGLE PHONE became obsolete the moment Jobs unveiled The iPhone! I was in awe and so were many people when Jobs demonstrated that slide to unlock lock-screen and I had a feeling that this is a rabbit hole that goes DEEP! Even unlocking The iPhone felt high-tech and futuristic. And then he went a step further and showed up pinch to zoom and all that fancy stuff which was unimaginable back in 2006. Poor Razr didn't have a chance! Nothing had.... G'Day!

No, they became less sought after or popular, not obsolete. Obsolete by definition means they no longer serve a useful purpose. It's not like every other phone stopped working when the iPhone was launched, just that everyone wanted something else. I know I'm being picky, but to me using words like that dilutes their weight, like someone saying this burger is "epic". No, it's not, it's a sandwich.

While everyone was walking around with RAZRs, I was using a Sidekick 2 and Sidekick 3. I guess I wasn't part of the in-crowd. Oh well.
