The Motorola DROID RAZR officially goes on sale today at Verizon Wireless for $299.99 on a 2-year contract. But if you’re not already a Verizon customer and plan on snagging the RAZR, I suggest you head over to Amazon where it’s just $111.11 for today only.
A huge lot of Android enthusiasts (as you’ll likely notice by the comments), are supressing all interest of the Droid RAZR in favor of the Galaxy Nexus- the world’s first Android 4.0 phone with Ice Cream Sandwich. The release date of that phone has yet to be announced and consumers would be foolish to not give the RAZR a thought at the very least. While the Galaxy Nexus bests the Droid RAZR in a bunch of key categories, you’ve got to hold the RAZR in you hands to truly appreciate it.
Complaints have included a sealed battery door (iPhone seems to do okay?) and locked bootloader, but barring any total battery blunders, the typical consumer isn’t likely to notice these complaints and the first of those contribute to a rather striking design.
In fact, the more novice smartphone user may prefer the Droid RAZR: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will definitely have more of a learning curve whereas the version found on the RAZR is much more obvious “here-is-the-icon-please-press-it” mentality. Plus it’s a Droid and it’s a RAZR. That alone is pretty cool.
