With its official launch scheduled tomorrow, details about Motorola's Droid Razr have been cropping up all over the Web. Earlier today, Droid Life published a full teaser picture, revealing an ultra-thin, Kevlar-backed handset. Meanwhile, MobileBurn received a package promoting tomorrow's New York City unveiling. It contained a Motorola-branded Rubik's Cube, a die-cast SR-71 Blackbird jet, a mouse pad with carbon fiber styling and two bags of thin mint chocolate candies.
The items are meant to represent the Droid Razr's "smarter," "faster," "stronger," and "thinner" design. Early specification leaks have validated those claims. BGR and others have confirmed that the handset will carry a dual-core 1.2GHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch 960x540 display protected by Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar-based shell. It's supposedly the thinnest LTE phone to date and its rear camera is rumored to support 1080p video capture.
As noted, Motorola has scheduled a press event in NYC tomorrow at 12PM. It's unclear whether any other devices will be displayed, though it's possible that the Xoom 2 could make an appearance. It's worth noting that a separate event for Android's much-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich build is also scheduled for tomorrow in Hong Kong. Although it could be pure coincidence, the coordination between events has led some to believe that the Razr will be the first handset to run Google's new mobile operating system. The software could just as likely be unveiled on the Xoom 2.
As a side note, the similarly-equipped Atrix 2 has just launched on AT&T. It's outfitted with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch 960x540 touchscreen, an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, as well as Bluetooth and GPS support. The Atrix 2 is priced at $99.99 through AT&T if you commit to a two-year contract, though the same offer is only $49.99 through Amazon. We also feel compelled to mention that our smartphone guide should be updated this week comparing today's hottest devices.
