For those of you interested in picking up the white or purple version of the Motorola DROID RAZR, listening to Motorola during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas say that it would be coming out “in the coming weeks” probably wasn’t good enough for you. Well, the company has finally come forward and announced an official launch date, as well as final pricing, and we can probably safely say that it should make any potential owner plenty happy.
As the title suggests, both the white and purples version of the 16GB-boasting DROID RAZR will land on January 23rd. As far as pricing goes, you can pick up either version for only $199.99. That makes perfect sense, considering the drop to only 16GB of storage (Motorola is not including a memory card in this device), and the upcoming release of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, which will cost $299.99 on contract.
If you are more interested in the black version of the 16GB DROID RAZR, you can pick that up right now for only $199.99.
