Report says Verizon Wireless will focus on promoting the Motorola Droid Razr this quarter.
Verizon Wireless will focus on promoting the new Long Term Evolution Android smartphone by Motorola Mobility, the Motorola Droid Razr, according to a report posted by Reuters.
The company’s spokesman has confirmed that the new Razr with the Google Android operating system will receive “tremendous advertising weight” this quarter that will surely attract the wider consumer audience, obviously leaving other Android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound as “alternatives” to Motorola’s sexiest Android smartphone to date.
The new Motorola Droid Razr is the thinnest Android smartphone yet, only 7.1 mm and surprisingly thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S II and Apple iPhone 4/iPhone 4S. However, the Droid Razr will offer an “older” Android operating system version, the Android Gingerbread 2.3, making it less attractive to advanced smartphone users.
Samsung’s new smartphone, the Google Galaxy Nexus, is the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich device, and the only smartphone that will offer the “most beautiful” Android version this year. However, Motorola has confirmed that the Droid Razr will get the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update next year — a strategic business decision that will challenge Samsung’s “pure Android” smartphone.
The Motorola Droid Razr, without the “Droid” branding, is also expected to compete against the Galaxy Nexus in other countries including China, countries in Europe and Central and South America.
The Motorola Droid Razr is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM, sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with 540 x 960 pixels resolution, can shoot HD photos and videos courtesy of an 8-megapixel primary camera and can also initiate and receive video calls courtesy of the phone’s 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Meanwhile, HTC is also trying its best to compete against Samsung and Motorola. The company’s new smartphone, the HTC Rezound, also created a buzz this week courtesy of the phone’s top of the line 720p HD screen and the free Beats Audio ear buds. Similar to the Motorola Droid Razr, the new HTC Rezound will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread — and similar to Motorola’s business strategy, HTC is promising an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich “early next year.”
Can the Razr plus Android, and Verizon’s ad blitz, deliver an impressive sales?
