Android fans in the United States have been enjoying the Motorola Droid RAZR for just under a week now, and today the super slim smartphone has arrived in the U.K. It’s the first handset to hit the market that’s thinner than both the iPhone 4S, and the Samsung Galaxy S II — measuring just 7.1mm at its thinnest point — making it the slimmest smartphone in the world.
Motorola announced the handset’s availability in a press release this morning, which also listed a number of retail stores in which users can pick up the handset, including Carphone Warehouse, Phones4U, and Amazon if you want it SIM-free.
Those looking to pick up the device can get it free with a two-year commitment, with both Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U offering the device on Vodafone from £31 (approx. $48.84). That includes a 500MB data allowance, 300 minutes, and 3,000 texts, which, to me, seems like a pretty good deal for Motorola’s latest flagship handset.
Without a commitment, the Droid RAZR is selling for £448.99 (approx. $707.38) on Amazon, with free express delivery.
Despite its tiny waist, the Droid RAZR certainly isn’t skimpy on specifications. That 7.1mm chassis is home to a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display. You won’t get Android Ice Cream Sandwich, however, but Motorola has promised that this will be available in a future update.
Despite the absence of Ice Cream Sandwich, those specs coupled with that tiny form factor should make the Motorola Droid RAZR an incredibly popular Android smartphone. Will you be buying one today?
