The Motorola Droid RAZR event is happening in New York but I took a quick look at Motorola Canada website for details. This device is heading to Rogers and will brought back as the “MOTOROLA RAZR”, but will run Android.
This is ridiculously thin at 7.1mm (now the thinnest phone on the planet), Android 2.3.5, made with KEVLAR fiber, have a 1.2 GHz processor and 4.3″ super AMOLED LED qHD display, 1800 mAh battery and a 8 megapixel camera that shoots 1080p HD videos. There’s a bunch of business features that comes with this and also accessories.
From the Moto Canada site it shows you can pre-order this, but it currently goes to a broken page. However in the States this pre-orders start on the 27th and the price is $299 on a 2-year, November launch.
Udpate: The press release I received stated “Motorola RAZR is coming exclusively to Rogers Communications customers in time for the holidays”.
Update #2: Rogers has posted their RAZR pre-order page – the 3-year contract price has been set at $149.99.

“Motorola RAZRTM: Put the Impossible in your Pocket. Again.
Head-turning design and life-changing features, available only at Rogers
TORONTO – OCTOBER 18, 2011 – Say hello to the jaw-dropping new Motorola RAZRTM, brought to you by the brains at Motorola Mobility Canada and available exclusively at Rogers Communications. Impossibly thin and lightweight, this smartphone is loaded with sexy curves. Its sculpted glass face, diamond-cut aluminum accents and hyper-saturated 4.3” Super AMOLED Advanced display are museum-worthy industrial design, while its Kevlar® fiber (yes, that Kevlar) and Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen with splash-guard coating, make this work of art a force to be reckoned with.
While they’re still dazzled by the outside, hit them with what’s inside. A cool 1GB of RAM hooks up with that dual-core processor and AndroidTM 2.3.5 to get you a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. Rock your playlists while you check your email, breeze through photos – all at the same time, all without delay. Motorola RAZR comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast™ app1, giving you the power to stream or download content from your PC straight to your device so your personal content is always within reach. Watch movies on a screen that sports a wider range of colours than most LCD HDTVs. And when you’re tired of watching (as if), use the cinematic-quality front-facing 720p video camera and 8MP rear-facing camera with even sharper 1080p HD video capture to create your own movies – and turn your life into art without breaking a sweat.”
