This morning Motorola got official with the Droid RAZR. Measuring in at just 7.1mm thin, Motorola is calling the handset the “world’s thinnest smartphone.” The phone is also the first to come sporting “Motorola SpashGuard” to help protect it from life’s little accidents, and will have an optional lapdock (two of them) available as well as a slew of other accessories such as Bluetooth headset and a Bluetooth keyboard.

Along with the RAZR Motorola announced MotoCast, a new free application that lets your stream and download music, pictures, and other data from your home computer to your phone, as well as Smart Actions that help automate everyday tasks (such as putting your phone on vibrate while you’re at work) to optimize the phone’s battery performance.
