Screenshots show blue Motorola DROID RAZR with release expected May 17th
Android Central obtained a screenshot of an internal Verizon website that shows a blue version of the Motorola DROID RAZR. Another screenshot shows that the model is expected to hit the market on May 17th. While no pricing information was revealed, the blue Motorola DROID RAZR will no doubt be priced at the same $99.99 with a signed 2-year contract that the other versions of the phone are selling for. Presently the handset is available in black, white and purple with the latter two colors added at the beginning of this year. The specs will also remain the same which means the unit will sport Android 2.3.

The Motorola DROID RAZR has had a rather sharp drop in price since it launched last November at $299.99 on contract. Once the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX was released with its 3300mAh battery, the former was reduced to a contract price of $199.99 at the beginning of 2012 and now is tagged at $99.99 on contract. With a Motorola DROID RAZR HD having been leaked, we could see another price adjustment across the DROID RAZR line soon, perhaps including the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. The latter remains at a $299.99 price level with a signature on the dotted line of a 2-year pact.

Motorola has a pretty good thing going with the Razrs. they have the Razr for the style conscious, the MAXX for the battery conscious and soon the HD for a complete refresh and the spec and monster screen size conscious.

Yep, I paid $300 for my RAZR 1 on Nov 9th, WORTH EVERY PENNY!

i bought it outright on craigslist and buried the price by selling my previous phone. i eventually replaced it with a certified like new replacement too.

Replaced? why?

the phone i bought wasn't in great shape so i just griped to customer support about the touch screen becoming inactive randomly which didn't really bother me much because locking and unlocking the phone would fix it but i felt like getting a fresh unit.

Craigslist has been my best friend. I've been trying out new phones every 4 months by selling or trading phones on Craigslist with people. It's awesome. You pay a little more up front, but save a hell of a lot of money, especially if you're with a prepaid carrier like Simple Mobile or Straight Talk. I'll never sign another contract again.

the device and the contract are separate. i used an upgrade on the Droid 3 and by a series of trades i ended up with a Razr.

Ok I'm very jealous of Verizon getting all the RAZRS with it's nifty colors only for that carrier. HOW BOUT RELEASING RAZRS for others? Still want one but I'm stuck on AT&T.

The RAZRS are only on Verizon because they are DROIDS and DROID is a Verizon only brand.

If Motorola is smart, they would release the Razr as something else for the other carriers. Maybe even keep the name Razr, because I love mine. This is a bad a$$ phone, one that could pull them out of the red. But I have to be honest, I don't feel too bad about having an exclusive phone with VZW because what I originally wanted was the Note. This will hold me over until the Journal, Note 2 or whatever comes out. VZW better get us a 5.3 incher, or I'm walking!

I have a Bionic and Razr Maxx. Have 4G LTE in my (small) city. I can leave 4G on with the Maxx all day. The Bionic on 4G goes dead in 3+/- hours. The Razr (standard) has just a few more mAhs on the battery. So I wish Motorola would drop the Razr it's crazy! The Maxx is the only way to go!

My RAZR 1 usually lasts 2-2.5 days, I just pulled it off the charger, it had been running for 2 days 2 hours (50 Hours) Once and a while it lasts 3 days ( http://i496.photobucket.com/albums/rr325/BattleBrat/DSC05056.jpg )I'm not the only one either.

i find those battery pages to be full of it. mine has similar stats but it doesn't last nearly that long. i use mine heavily and it makes it through the day but barely.

I assure you, It was 3 days, happens once and a while. Juice defender ultimate, don't go cheap, use ultimate. My Archos G9 101 Tablet running ICS lasts a week! Keep in mind, I also carry a 64GB 4th gen iTouch, so it takes some workload off the phone, but when out and about, the phone handles the music. The iTouch is mostly for games.....

the blue looks cool, id rather have the white one. i think more compnaies should release a better selection of colors for higher end phones.

16. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

yeah, i want a white one myself. i may get my black one replaced with one eventually. o:

I keep mine in an Otterbox Commuter, I wouldn't be able to tell what color it was anyway :D

i used to keep mine in a Speck Fitted case but the fabric got stained and my OCD wouldn't allow it so after many attempts to clean it with traditonal methods i tried to pressure wash it and it ruined it. i like it better without the case though so i'll keep it bare. replacements are just a minor inconvenience anyway. xD

I don't like that whole replacement attitude, it started with apple, where your music just happened to be on a device, oh, your ipods screen cracked cause you dropped it? don't worry, we'll just copy it and load it on new one for you, like it is just a husk for your music, made it feel cheap. I liked it when a device was YOURS, it was unique to me, like my Walkman X. I got the OG Droid back in the day, I still have it THE SAME PHONE. I use it as an alarm clock (That thing is pretty loud for a phone.) I plan on keeping my RAZR as well.

sorry, i'm just not that sentimental about things.

24. BattleBrat

It's not about sentiment, its about something being so easily replaced like that, it makes it feel cheap...

25. KingKurogiii

on the contrary, it's satasfying to know that they value my satasfaction enough to just throw nice phones like the Razr at me. it doesn't really detract from the phone at all for me.

How would you be able to do that? Because I was thinking about exchanging my DROID 4 for a DROID RAZR. At the time I bought it I wanted a physical keyboard, but now that I tried typing on the screen I am willing to sacrifice the keyboard for a better screen and a thinner phone. Btw I got it two months ago if that helps and it’s in perfect condition.

it might be possible if you get enough Droid 4 exchanges but they wouldn't want to because the Razr is still regarded as a flagship device. i'd be happy with the Droid 4 though. there's times that i almost decide to trade my own Razr for one. o:
