Motorola Droid Razr begins to make waves

Posted by Mike Luttrell

The phone that will revive what used to be one of the coolest, hipped smartphone brands is expected to be unveiled later today.

A timer is currently counting down on Motorola Mobility's main website and is set to expire at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. The widely believed idea is that at this time, Motorola will open up a pre-order page or at least reveal information about its newest Android phone.

The timer also corresponds with the timing of a media event in the US. Motorola promises the reveal will be for a "faster, thinner, smarter, stronger" phone.

Most believe this will be the unveiling of a new Razr phone, which would essentially bring new life to a product line that many considered dead after Android was introduced.

Expected to be called the Droid Razr, it looks like such a phone will fit in line with the brand's heralded super-slick aesthetic.

According to reports, the phone will have a 4.5-inch display, dual-core 1.2 GHz processing power, 1 GB of RAM, and an 8 MP camera.

Some optimistic spectators think it's possible the Droid Razr could also be a flagship phone for Google's Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, which is conveniently timed to be unveiled at around the same time.
