Verizon is gearing up for the launch of their Motorola Droid RAZR, which if rumors hold out to be true will be on Big Red’s shelves by the end of the week. The phone has appeared in VZW’s equipment guide, giving us one last look at its specs. The document comes courtesy of DroidLife (visit the source link below to view). Nothing new is revealed by the entry, but its appearance is a good sign for those eagerly awaiting the uber-thin handset. Another good sign? The launch of a Droid RAZR landing page over at DroidDoes.com. The site gives yet another overview of major features and offers would-be buyers the opportunity to sign up for email alerts. We also get another good look at the RAZR’s stylish design. It’s a shame every phone doesn’t look this good.
