Verizon confirms Droid RAZR goes on sale at 11:11 a.m. 11-11-2011, brings new data plans with it

31

Verizon's been teasing a Nov. 11 launch for the Motorola Droid RAZR, and this morning it's made it official. And, lining up with the news we broke last week, stores will open at 11:11 a.m. local time. (It's all to celebrate November being the launch month of the original Motorola Droid, they tell us.)

Oh, but there's more. Verizon's celebrating with some limited-edition data plans to go with it, provided you have a 4G LTE-capable smartphone. Starting Nov. 8, if you opt for the 2GB/$30 plan, Verizon will double your data allowance to 4GB. And this applies to new and existing customers. (The latter will need to change their plans online or with a customer service representative.)

Pretty sweet deal from Verizon, which did not say when the promotion will end.

Motorola Droid RAZR review

Our comprehensive review of the Droid RAZR

What a way to enter the holiday season. Verizon Wireless has suddenly found itself with arguably three of the hottest Android smartphones of the year, just as the holiday shopping season begins. There’s the just-announced HTC Rezound, the “Pure Google” Samsung Galaxy Nexus and what brings us together today -- the Motorola Droid RAZR.

Yes, the RAZR -- the flip phone that became as cliche as it was once iconic -- has been reborn in the smartphone era. And it should surprise no one that Android is at the heart of its reincarnation.

And Motorola, which led the march toward thinner, lighter and bigger smartphones more than a year ago with the Droid X, has changed things up again with the RAZR. But the Droid RAZR’s eccentricities may also be its undoing. Read on to find out why in our complete Droid RAZR review.


It's fast, it's thin, it's got a gorgeous high-resolution display, and it's running the most recent version of Android available (at least for a few more weeks). Motorola has already promised an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. Good camera, and has Verizon 4G LTE data.


May be too large for some; is about the widest phone we've used. Battery can't be removed. Full of preloaded apps that you might or might not actually want.



Yet another "best-of" phone for Verizon. But the Droid RAZR's size could be a bit much for some, and we've got real concerns about not being able to swap out the battery for a fresh one when needed.

Motorola Droid RAZR hardware review

Don't want to swallow our Motorola Droid RAZR review in one bite? Let's break it up a bit. Here's our official walkthrough of the hardware. Put it this way: It's big. It's thin. It's relatively light.

It's almost too big, though. The Droid RAZR is about the widest phone we've ever used. If you've got smallish hands, it could be a bit much. But, boy, is it ever thin -- 7.11 mm at its thinnest point.

It's also bitterly ironic that the back of the phone is as beautiful as it is, because that solid piece means no removable battery. Time will tell if that's its Achilles' Heel.

Droid RAZR software review

Want to stroll through the Motorola Droid RAZR software without being bothered with all those words and things? We gotcha covered. Here's a quick look at a lot of what Motorola's packed into the Droid RAZR. 

You've got the same Philblur UI that's evolved over the past year or so. Five home screens, a customizable dock, and a horizontal scrolling app drawer. That's the bread and butter, but where Motorola's really impressing is with the little things. Automatic reminders for Wifi (and automatically turning it on when you're near a trusted network). A new music app. MOTOACTV. MOTOPRINT. Plus more pre-loaded applications than we know what to do with.

Take a gander at the video above for a walkthrough, then hit the full review for all the dirt details.

HTC releases Desire Gingerbread kernel source code

0

Good news for anyone involved with tinkering around with software for the venerable HTC Desire. In accordance with open source rules, HTC has just released the kernel source code for the device's Gingerbread update, which was offered as an optional RUU for GSM Desires back in August. The move follows the release of a slew of other source code for more recent devices over the weekend, and should help out anyone involved with the lively Desire custom ROM scene.

Remember, as ever, that this code is for developers only, and won't be of much use to the average user (or even the average ROM flasher). If you're after the Gingerbread update itself, you can find out more over here.
