Motorola DROID RAZR HD: 4.7-Inch Beauty in a Slim Package

motorola-droid-razr-hdMotorola on Wednesday officially announced the DROID RAZR HD, a device with a wonderful 4.7-inch display that the company said stretches all the way to the handset’s corners. See ya later, bezel. Nobody will miss you, ever. The HD screen allegedly sports 78 percent more pixels than a RAZR or RAZR MAXX — really, any upgrade over the screens on those device’s is an upgrade — and has an incredible 85 percent more color saturation more than something like the iPhone 4S. Eye-popping photos and video.

The device will come preloaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which is a huge disappointment considering the OS has been out for a few months now. Not only that, but company is under Google! I guess there is no preferential treatment involved.

However, Jelly Bean is promised to hit before this holiday season — Chrome will come preinstalled as the browser of choice, though. That’s Project Butter with an already blazing face mobile browsing experience. I want. Now.

Of course, you’ll get Verizon wonderfully quick LTE, allowing users to stream music and videos, and easily browse the Internet with ease. And don’t worry about draining your device’s life. LTE may have a rep for sucking battery dry, but the RAZR HD will sport a 2500mAh battery, giving users 16 hours of talk time in a package that’s smaller than a Galaxy S III or HTC One X.

Specs include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera, mobile hotspot, Gorilla Glass, global ready and microSD support of up to 32GB. The device will be available before the holidays, Motorola said.
