You can write this down: the new Droid RAZR is Android’s answer to the iPhone 4S. It’s the form-factor revolution most were expecting of the “iPhone 5.” It’s as desirable — or more — than any iPhone or BlackBerry while innovating on several fronts.
Keep in mind this is a phone for the masses, not for Android developers or “geeks.” It’s a status symbol just like the first RAZR.
Yes, it lacks Ice Cream Sandwich but an update can fix that. What it adds to the game is much more meaningful:
- Thinnest phone out there — 7.1 mm
- (probably) the lightest big-screen smartphone in the world
- Gorilla Glass (always awesome, a required feature in my book)
- KEVLAR body that makes it super-tough and resistant to spills
You’ll see this phone in best-seller lists this Holiday season, even if you can’t replace the battery or play with the bootloader. It’s the first DROID all over again and a huge step forward in smartphone engineering and design.
