Motorola Droid Razr (Verizon Wireless) Video Transcript
Hey, everyone. I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and we're here in New York at a very special event where they have unveiled the Motorola Droid Razr. Yes, that's right. The Razr is back but in a smartphone form. And as the previous Razrs, it's very, very thin. It's 7.1 mm thick, so as you can see really thin here but a very nice feeling phone. On back, you've got a Kevlar fiber backing, so that's very nice and rugged. It's also water-repellent inside and out. So if you happen to spill some coffee or splash some water, it should be alright. On front here, you've got a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD touchscreen; really, really gorgeous, very sharp and bright, you know, better than previous Motorola phones which has just qHD displays, so very exciting there. On bottom, you've got the usual Android buttons: the Menu, Home, Back and Search. On top, you've got an HDMI port as well as a micro-USB port and a 3.5-mm headphone jack. On back, there is an 8-megapixel camera and it can do 1080p HD video. So even though this phone is very thin, it's still very feature-packed and powerful. It's got a dual-core 1.2 gigahertz processor as well as 4G LTE capabilities. Software-wise, it's running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. A couple of things that Motorola added is MotoCast so you'll be able to stream content from your PC to your phone such as videos and music and photos. It's also got an application called Smart Actions which will help you automatically do some tasks or optimize battery life. Speaking of battery life, it has a 1780 mA lithium-ion battery and they are saying that rated talk time is gonna be 12.5 hours. So you know, that was one of my concerns about a phone this size, is what would happen to battery life, but they're saying it's gonna be around 12.5, so we'll have to see once we get it in whether that's true or not. I'll admit when I first heard rumors of a Droid Razr, I wasn't sure what to think about it. But now that I have it in hand and have been able to play with it, it's really fast and gorgeous. I'm really excited about it and then hopefully it'll work out in performance testing and everything else. The Motorola Droid Razr will be available for pre-orders from Verizon Wireless starting October 27th and the cost will be $299.99, so it is a little bit pricey. It'll be available in stores in November but they don't have a specific date. Also available in November is the new Moto Active which they also announced today. It's the fitness and music device that also has a heart rate monitor and can hold about 4000 songs and also can sync with your phone like the Droid Razr which has an app preloaded on here so you can check out your workouts and also receive text messages and see incoming calls. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your First Look at the Motorola Droid Razr for Verizon Wireless.
