Motorola Mobility Canada recently announced that the RAZR V will be available sometime this Summer through a variety of carriers, such as Bell, Videotron, Virgin and WIND Mobile. We then realized that Bell, possibly Virgin, would be up first with an “early August” release, while WIND is targeting the fall period. If you’re holding out for this Android 4.0 powered device you should mark August 2nd off on your calendars. This is the date that Bell has set for its release. The price should come in just under $400 outright and hasa 4.3-inch display (resolution of 540×960), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8.4mm thin with Kevlar backing and an 8MP camera that captures 1080p videos.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Pretty decent price for what you are getting. I can see this being a popular device among people.

    kevlar, just in case someone tries to shoot my phone

      Hey, in toronto you never know !

    A unlocked version of this would make a great idea for a contest for those of us locked in a contract with a crappy phone. *caugh xt720 *caugh

    Telus is a premiere Canadian carrier that we enjoy working with. They cater to all types of consumers with their wide variety selection of phones. This phone would be for the misguided shoppers category and for people who don’t like making smart purchases.

    The Iphone 4/4s would be a much better alternative

      but its Bell that’s releasing it. seems really easy to get a job at apple, just say a bunch of retarded s**t.

    Anyone know if it will have video output? Won’t buy on bell but maybe on wind if I can play my movies off it

  • Sub-Joker

    which processor is motorola using for this phone??
    also, how is this different form the RAZR XT910?? beside the memory size difference and of course the ICS OS, and the use of LCD rather than AMOLED???

    I don’t understand the reason behind releasing this phone as it seems to be very similar to the RAZR XT910!!!

      the RAZR is Moto’s current flagship android phone, but it’s been on the market for 9 months. They’re probably going to release a new flagship, but rather than discontinue the existing model, they’re keeping it in the product lineup but trimming it’s cost.

    Haha, clearly the apple sales guy was being sarcastic, no one in their right mind would actually suggest that the iPhone is a better alternative.
