DROID RAZR Presales Begin Tomorrow at 8AM EST for $300, Ships No Later than Nov. 10th


Welp, Verizon’s made it official – the DROID RAZR will be going up for presale tomorrow, Oct. 27th, for $300 after signing a new two-year agreement. And just as the rumors suggested, Verizon says it’s shipping no later than November 10th which gives them room to ship to preorderers a bit before then (we wouldn’t cling too tightly to that last bit, though).

The DROID RAZR has a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, Android 2.3 with MOTOBLUR, 4G LTE radios and more. It’s one of the thinnest phones in the world at just 7.1mm. Motorola has also committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to the device sooner.

Hit this link tomorrow at 8AM EST to stake your claim to one. Other options include walking into a good ol’ brick and mortar shop or calling 1-800-2-JOIN-IN. Anyone in for one or will you wait for that other phone we’re all excited about?



Customers can pre-order the DROID RAZR starting tomorrow at 8 a.m. EST for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement and data plan at www.droiddoes.com/DroidRazr.


The DROID RAZR not only shreds through the Web at blazing 4G LTE speeds, it does it in style with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display and measuring 7.1 mm thin. DROID RAZR is also packed with brains and security giving customers apps like MotoCast and features like remote wipe, pin lock and government-grade encryption for email, calendar and contacts.


DROID RAZR customers can take advantage of the Super AMOLED Advanced display and 4G LTE speeds to stream videos with NFL Mobile, only from Verizon. Fans can stay up to date on news, schedules and scores from their favorite teams. NFL Mobile is included at no additional charge for 4G LTE customers for the remainder of the 2011 season. DROID RAZR customers will have access to Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network that now covers more than 186 million Americans coast to coast with additional markets planned before year end.


Customers may also pre-order in stores or by calling 1 800 2 JOIN IN.  Pre-orders of the DROID RAZR will ship no later than Nov. 10.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. It would be nice to see manufacturers eventually be able to pinpoint a date for an operating system update. They are losing out on sales because people don’t want to buy it with no idea when it will get 4.0

    1. I think a relatively small market of people are even aware that Android 4.0 exists. Heck, the masses of android buyers out there will not even realize there are different versions of the OS.
      If you are on Phandroid though, you are obviously “in the know”.

      As for the Razr, I’ll pass. I need a removable battery. I could probably overlook that but not when I know the Nexus is around the corner.
      Nice phone though.

  2. I think I may wait for the nexus. Whenever that’ll be…

  3. This looks great – but not great enough to actually pre-order before trying it.

  4. Who cares. Let me pre-order the Nexus!!!!

  5. Galaxy Nexus it will be!

  6. Nexus or bust!

  7. I was actually going to hold out for the Nexus, but this phone supports Bluetooth 4.0 and I could actually use the ‘up-to-200ft’ range. Any thoughts on this?

    1. I (personally) find no need for bluetooth at 200ft…I want the latest software and most B.A. phone out there…Razr looks nice though.

      1. Does anyone know if Bluetooth 4.0 will boost the range for A2DP protocol?

  8. If I was ignorant, I would be all over that. However, knowing what I know…what we all know, I just can’t do it. I’ll continue to wait for the Galaxy Nexus.

  9. Verizon is being very hopeful taking pre-orders. I personally dont think there is a need. There will be no lines for this come Nov 10. Not when there is an android flagship phone released ever 2 months.

    1. I think @robjackson81 is correct…this phone will be marketed like crazy by Verizon and will probably outsell the Nexus. Ask 100 people on the street what the Nexus line is and 99 will have no idea (that’s it a pure google device).

      I think the Nexus is aimed more at the hardcore android users and developers. The marketing will have a more targeted approach (mostly online).

      1. Ask anyone at a VZW store and they don’t know what the Nexus or Razr is. They are still promoting the Cryonic.

      2. Valid point. But there are still a limited # of people willing to pay $250 – $300 for a phone. Most of them just bought the Bionic or the 4s.

  10. Verizon WILL promote the heck out of this and it WILL outsell the Galaxy Nexus. Which phone is better? Depends on who you ask but I am betting there will be an advertising ONSLAUGHT. I mean… Droid? RAZR? That’s two hugely powerful brands.

    1. You mean like Galaxy and Nexus? I think you’re probably right though, VZW is gonna push this phone harder.

    2. agreed.. but I wonder how many more sales they would’ve done if they chose to advertise the crap out of the Nexus? More people would take notice of the Nexus being amazing (more so than the razr) and word would spread just as fast as it did for the original Droid

  11. Between the two big 4g phones about to drop on big red neither one is getting my hard earned money. Both of them have too many cons against them to make me want to step up from my DX.

    1. there are 3 big LTE phones that are about to be released.

      Really, too many cons to step up from the DX? So the LTE radios, superior displays, dual cores do nothing for you? talk about high maintenance

      1. Not high maintenance just looking to get every dollars worth. I do not want a new contract so to spend $500+ on a phone I want it to withstand time a little better.

        Yes I am looking for lte and hd displays, what about fm radio and card readers? I would also like a removable battery and NFC, all on the same phone. Right now I don’t see a phone with what I am looking for.

        Both fall short.

  12. Damn Verizon getting the phones! Where are the other three carriers? Lol.

  13. Maybe it’s just me, but from a design perspective this is a much more appealing and forward-looking phone when compared to the Nexus Prime. Fortunately for me my renewal isn’t until February by which point I’m sure there’ll already be a RAZR 2. LOL

    1. I believe there will be a line of bionic owners at Verizon stores ready to throw their phone through the glass windows. For the people who bought the bionic they should feel very cheated by Motorola and Verizon. In fact since both phones probably were in development at the same times I think a class action would be fair, at least to get your upgrade reversed, if nothing else.

  14. Now, $300 is a good price. Of course, I’ll wait for the frenzy to die down before I get my Droid Razar.

  15. So if the Verizon leaks are correct, we should be able to preorder the galaxy nexus on 11/10 and give thanks to it on the 24th?


    1. most likely nov 10 or 17 are the dates flying around with some “sources” saying it may be available nov 3 but didnt say if it was for preorder or in store.

  16. I am going to pass and get the HTC Vigor… It reads to have everything I need and want and I am sure ICS will be on it quickly… either from HTC or one of our Dev groups.

  17. Verizon and Motorola haven’t learned a single thing from the overpriced Xoom, $300 for a phone is way too much.

    1. you do know that the phone probably cost $300 to make? lol. id be surprised if they broke even. they make the money on the contract..

      1. Doubt it costs that much, but even if it did, relaying the production price of the phone onto the customer, and adding in a two year contract is too much. I paid $525 full price for my Samsung GS2, dread the full cost of this phone if they are charging $300 for a contracted price.

  18. I would need to know if that same rooting technique that works for the droid3 and bionic would work for this before I would buy it.

    1. root has already been achieved on this and will be released come launch day. One of the testers on twitter announced this

  19. I will wait for all 3 phones to be in the store. I will load the different benchmark apps, check those, see how the screens look to my eyes, and make a final decision. My hope for the order goes like this…

    1. Galaxy Nexus
    2. Droid Razr
    3. HTC Rezound
    4. iPhone 4S

  20. Hmmm. $300. Locked Bootloader. No ETA for ICS. MotoBlur. Yeah I will stick with my rooted TBolt running BAMF 2.4.1 for now

  21. They won’t charge under $300 for any 4G phone. Period.

    1. stratosphere $150, breakout $99 both of which are 4g. Not to mention revolution is 149 and thunderbolt is 149, charge is 199.

      1. oh snap

      2. burn

  22. The Razr has been up for pre order here in Norway aswell for a couple of days. No Nexus though..

  23. Just got a email so i could order the RAZOR but I think I’ll wait for the nexus prime

  24. I am due for an upgrade early November. I am on the fence between the Razr and the Nexus. Each phone has a lot to offer. One thing I wonder is, would it be better to buy the Razr because it offers a 8MP camera versus the Nexus’ 5MP and wait til the beginning of the year for when the Ice Cream Sandwich update comes out?

    1. having a higher megapixel count doesn’t make the camera take better pictures. plus the nexus galaxy has zero shutter time so when you snap to take a picture it captures immediately instead of waiting 2-3 seconds like most phones (which is too late to capture the moment sometimes)

    2. You would buy a phone with a bootloader locked tight, no NFC, no curved screen, slower android updates?
