phone which not only isn't out, but hasn't even been officially announced or rumored before. There is a chance that this is the same Streamline device we saw leaked on the Motorola web site redesign, but the only connection there is the fact that any DROID RAZR will undoubtedly be a very thin device.
Of course, the question remains whether Motorola can make a device sufficiently thin enough to make anyone really interested. With the Samsung Galaxy S II and iPhone 4 both around 8.5mm thick, the iPhone 5 likely to be at most 8mm thick, and a new phone from NEC at just 7.7mm, just how thin will the DROID RAZR have to be to get you interested?

In my point of view(correct me if I'm incorrect) the king of the age of RAZR (2004-2006) was nokia N95(2006) a way better my 1st smartphone (I had almost all Nseries, now with an N8, surelly i ll buy a N9)

or is it going to be a really thin flip phone with basic android services on it? Something that I thought would have happened a long time ago concidering just under 50% of the market is still non-smartphone. kill the touchscreen, give it a trackpad and better access to the internet and email than a regular phone and it will be a hit for grandma. the gateway phone to a smartphone.

NO!!!! DONT DO IT MOTO!!!! There's a reason you don't bring things back from the dead? Kindof like people. You don't bring people back from the dead because they come back all icky and gooey and undead and eventually start to eat the living people. This is probably what would happen if you tried to bring the Razr back...

That would be an amazing feat! Think about it: a phone thinner than the SGSII's thinnest point, all throughout. Flat, with no booty, unlike the SGSII. Around 7mm? But with awesome specs. A great screen, fast processor, great camera, etc. But then again, that would feel too delicate. Someone with strong hands might be able to break that phone in half.

I am interested to see how a new Razr would do. I work for a phone company and a LOT of customers either wish we'd rerelease it (thinking we manufacture the freaking things) or they cling to theirs no matter how old it gets.

I've used the old Razr for a while when it was out. I personally don't think it is as good as it is hyped up to be. I found it not very easy to open when you receive a call. That is an issue with many clamshell form factors back then. My wife had a different clamshell phone and often the phone will slip from her fingers as she is opening it and she ends up hanging up on the caller. The Razr was my work phone and the Nokia 6126 was my personal phone. I like the Nokia more because it had a spring action button that flips open the phone with a simple press. The Razr looks nicer, but the Nokia just works better. The Razr was a very popular phone back then. I see them around a lot. I guess Motorola is trying to capitalise on the name and hopes that it will give them a marketing edge. The name implies that it will be a very thin device. I would be interested to see how it compares with the thinnest phones on the market at the time of its release.

" I personally don't think it is as good as it is hyped up to be." ONE WORD: IPHONE. I say hell yes to a RAZR running android. The RAZR was the most popular cell phone period and I know a lot of people who still use them and would love to see it again.

as long as it remains a feature phone with just the Android OS then that could be nice.

That's not going to happen sadly. Android is a smartphone OS thus it requires the data package. I mean they could sell it under a prepaid package but it will still require a data plan of some sort.

I personally don't get all the hype about thinness. Really, are peoples pockets getting smaller and tighter that they can't fit phones 2mm thicker than the "thinnest phone"? Also seems reckless to keep making phones thinner, unless they plan to make carbon nano-tube frames.
