Motorola Droid RAZR M developer edition, unlocked and ready for purchase

As promised, Motorola has released a developer edition of the recently launched Droid RAZR M for Verizon. The only difference between the dev edition and the phone release yesterday on Verizon is an unlockable bootloader (and an unsubsidized pricing). Otherwise, you get the same specs, including a 4.3-inch qHD display and 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. The Motorola Droid RAZRM Developer Edition is available now for $549.99.

      Except that when your phone can’t hold service to save your life you’ll wish you spent the extra money on a phone that works as a phone. ;)

        Not to mention a brand new device out of the box and not used.And God knows what that used phone has gone through…

        Sitting next to my brother who got the M yesterday. My S3 has 4g, and he’s looking 3g. Been that way for two hours.

    Save that money and get a nexus phone!

      If we even get a Nexus device this year >.>, so far its not looking so good, no leaks at all

      • james ortiz

        prefer no leaks. because it makes it seem like something big is going on

        • Marsg

          Well Jelly bean has already been released and a new nexus is released side by side a new version, on top of that we haven’t seen or heard any rumors to re-assure us that we are getting a nexus this year, I really hope we do

          • james ortiz

            well I remember something about 5 nexus devices being released

          • Marsg

            Well the thing is, that rumor was started on forums, there is no solid leaks of documents or snapshots that indicates its true. So really we have no idea whats going to happen. Last year we had Nexus rumors starting all the way back in June, then we had a teaser early October and a release in December. if we don’t see anything percolating all the way through October then i will have a lot of doubts.

            I don’t foresee a Nexus release this year. Remember the reason for the Nexus in the first place? To set the bar for the rest of the manufacturers? I think they have done that well already. What else could Google offer with what is out right now in hardware that would be game changing?

  • Nick_Lopez_Loya

    I wish tmobile had razrs. Sweet ass battery

    • koolkat2

      gsm versions should be coming. although the last one lacked dev support but as long as thats not a must for you, i imagine it would be great

  • Jonathan DeJesus

    Every year we’re to get a nexus device(not phone)and this was the year for the nexus 7 or did you guys already forget. We may get announcements for new nexus devices later in the year but I really doubt to see a new nexus device on the market this year. As Google is still selling Nexus 7s and pushing the Galaxy Nexus really hard.

    Why anyome would support a company stiff-arming their consumers like this is beyond me.I don’t think this whole, ‘developer edition’, crap will stick.
    It’s essentially them saying, ‘Ha ha! We’re not unlocking the bootloaders like we said! Neener neener neener! That is, unless you pay for for your phone outright, with no option to get it subsidised.’
