This week brings a massive day of announcements for equally massive Android Smartphones. Within the next 24 hours, there is set to be the announcement made regarding the Google Nexus Prime/Samsung Galaxy Nexus that the world has been waiting so patently for, while Motorola are to make public the official details of their new Razr Smartphone, which is to be their highest spec Android device to date. Preorders for the Motorola powerhouse are to begin on October 27th, with a price of $299 and a headline announcing the arrival as the Razr Sharp.
Needless to say, the Razr may be one of the devices best suited to compete against the Nexus Prime upon its launch, keeping the market warm at least for the brief period before the HTC Rezound/Vigor sees the light of day.
Among the excellent specs of the Razr come a couple of signature features, which include wireless computer media streaming, specialised docks and not least the fact that it is the thinnest 4G Smartphone the world has so far seen.
Launching early November, the Razr will measure in at 7.1mm thick, boast a 4.3 inch curved Gorilla Glass screen and a Kevlar coated back panel. Furthermore, every component of the device has a splash guard coating to protect against everyday liquid-related mishaps.
Power comes courtesy of a lightning fast processor backed up by 1GB or dedicated RAM, while the 8 megapixel camera and full 1080p video recording are also quite superb.
Smart power saving options are also a Godsend for preserving battery life, which include automatically switching the Razr to vibrate mode during working hours and dimming the display as battery power diminishes.
Of course, it remains in the hands of the consumer to decide the fate of the Razr upon its launch, but given the likes of the iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S2 and soon to be Nexus Prime doing the rounds, to say it will have its work cut out would be putting it mildly to say the least.
