Domain purchases tell so much, yet at the same time oh so little. This time, brand protection service CSC seems to have been contracted by Motorola to buy up several RAZR domains.

The selection includes domains such as MotorolaRAZR.net and other combinations of “Moto” and “RAZR” alongside various spellings of the latter. These likely won’t be used by Motorola as they’re just trying to make sure no one creates a website using their name and trademarks.

But why now? The RAZR brand is ancient in phone years. Recent rumors have suggested that Motorola would be bringing back the brand in the form of a DROID RAZR, an Android smartphone for Verizon.

We usually see domain registration activity pop up around these sorts of releases so we want to believe it’s that. In fact, Motorola’s not doing feature phones anymore last we checked so we’re sure it can’t be a remake of the once-iconic phone. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for more info in the coming months. [via Fusible]
