Rumor: Droid RAZR revealed?

Launched in 2004, Motorola's RAZR line of mobile phones became a huge sales hit for a few years. The flip phones were known for their thin and stylish design and during its life span Motorola sold 130 million units of the device, more than any other flip phone ever made. While the RAZR line fell by the wayside in the wake of the rise of the smartphone, a new rumor from Thisismynext.com reports via an unnamed tipster that Motorola might be trying to bring the RAZR name out of mothballs and on a new phone in its Droid series.

The new Android-based phone, which might also be going by the name the Motorola Spyder, is supposed to have a dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor, support for LTE networks, a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touch screen display, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a front facing camera, and more. It's also supposed to have Kevlar casing for added toughness. The phone reportedly has added support for the Lapdock add-on that will allow the user to use the phone as a laptop. The article also has a few pictures of the Motorola Spyder-Droid RAZR.

While there's no word yet on how much this phone will cost or when it will be released, if it does use the "Droid" name in the title it also means that Verizon will likely be the exclusive wireless provider for the product. So far neither Verizon nor Motorola have officially announced anything about this new smartphone.

The thing I hate about touch screen phones is that they all look almost the same. Looking at the specs, I don't see how it would be any different than the Galaxy S II.

Hey I took the original apart was gonna go in the trash anyway. well made phone very hard to take him apart. course today I don't do that anymore. But the Razr by then was as hated as a Blackberry that it made sense at the time.

Yawn, this isn't going anywhere, like the new Xoom as well. And people wonder why Motorola mobility is going nowhere.

Unless it is the slimmest smartphone ever made by Motorola, or by stretch any other company (like the original Razr at the time), this name is just a gimmick.

If that is the phone it doesn't look that amazing. Just like any other Android phone.

I'd have expected something with the RAZR moniker would be more interesting like the original razr.

Couldn't agree more.
Motorola should hold off on using the RAZR name until they create a standout device. Maybe save it for a super-thin device or something...
