Motorola DROID RAZR M: Small Phone, Huge Screen, Great Price

RAZR M_Black_Front_VZW-2To cap of its RAZR-focused gala, Motorola on Wednesday announced the DROID RAZR M, a rather unique device that’s practically all screen. It’s essentially the size of an iPhone 4S, but it comes packing a 4.3-inch display — that’s 40 percent more viewing area, Motorola said.

The “unbelievably compact” device is basically a shorter and narrower DROID RAZR (the first one from 2011), but retains the screen size. That means users will experience some amazing edge-to-edge goodness in a tiny pocketable package. Let’s hope this is the future of all next-generation devices.

Like its two larger brethren, the RAZR M will come preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich, with plans to upgrade to Jelly Bean later this year. Again, super disappointing, but if the company can make good on its “end-of-year” promise, then maybe it won’t be too huge of a deal.

In addition to the screen size, the M will pack an 8-megapixel camera, 2000mAh battery, NFC, 8GB of internal storage, microSD support and Gorilla Glass 2. It’s a budget phone, sure, but it comes packing some impressive specs for only $99. Better, it’ll go on sale next week, and potential buyers can preorder today.

Motorola unleashed a three pronged beast today. The RAZR and RAZR MAXX are excellent options, but the company also tailored to the mid-range crowd. The M will with full support of Google’s suite, and also run Chrome from the outset. It’ll be interesting to see how it performs against today’s current devices.
