The new Moto RAZR (Razer phone) rises from the ashes of the old

Remember the Motorola RAZR aka Razer phone? That was a series of flip phones with a hardware keypad that sold in their millions. The Moto RAZR V3 sold over 100 million units worldwide to get a mention among the top 10 bestselling phones of all time.

This is what the original Razer phone looks like:

The original RAZR was known for skimping on specs and splurging on looks. This new guy, however, is as much looks as real muscles too.

The new Moto RAZR will be available in stores from November.

Motorola disappeared from these parts years ago, so hopes of seeing the new Razer phone come officially here are next to zilch. Still, what’s to stop Android fans from drooling over this guy?

    It’s not sporting the latest ‘ice cream’ android 4. By the time it will be shipping it will be already outdated. Motorola is owned by google and I don’t know why this is. Motorola is notoriously slow in getting updates to its users as was the case in the Droid X.

    Yomi, you forgot to mention; the Dorid Razr would also be Water Resistant!

    However I doubt the Razr would be as compelling as it was years ago. Maybe the dressing of the looks with good features this time around may make the difference. Still I think it is an an old idea, and Motorola may not be ale to pull the stunt they did the last time!

    Can someone please tell our CDMA operators to go pick up this phone, market it and sue me if it does not sell.

    @Bosun99uk. totally agree with you. Our CDMA operators seem to be overwhelmed and intimidated by their GSM brothers (what is with operators significantly spiking the price of handset? Pretty silly imho)
