Purple/Violet/Fuchsia Motorola DROID RAZR Official Launch Date Revealed


In the days before CES, we told you guys not only that the Motorola Droid Razr’s price had dropped to a more reasonable $200, but that Moto would introduce an all new purple version of the device “in the coming days.” Well, if you have a lady friend or significant other who is particular fond of purple devices (I don’t know — I feel like it’s more of a fuchsia), you may want to tell them to wait until January 23rd when the purple (fuchsia) Razr will officially be available in Verizon Wireless retail stores.

And for all the men out there, I wouldn’t hold it against you if you waited in line for this one. You know… for “your girl.” Full press release below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
