Motorola Announces RAZR V For Canada

Motorola has just announced the addition of the RAZR V phone to their RAZR line.  The new RAZR V is only 8.4mm thick and is protected by DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, providing a tough scratch-resistant outer shell.

Motorola understands it’s users and to meet their various needs, it’s introducing SMARTACTIONS™.  This application intelligently automates routine tasks and provides additional ways to customize your phone to make your life easier.   The software will now be able to detect that you’ve inserted headphones, and will automatically start your favorite play list.  SMARTACTIONS will also detect that your battery is low and can adjust settings to extend your battery’s life.

The RAZR V will ship with Android 4.0, an 8 megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p HD video, front-facing camera, and a 4.3″ Colourboost™ display which enhances the color, providing you with sharper images.

Iconic. Innovative. A specimen of smartphone genius.

July 10, 2012

TORONTO – July 10, 2012 – Designed to give your current smartphone an inferiority complex, Motorola RAZR™ V, brought to you by Motorola Mobility Canada Ltd., packs really smart software and high-end, high-tech multimedia tools into inspirational design. .

The newest addition to the RAZR family, Motorola RAZR V is remarkably thin – just 8.4 mm – yet unbelievably strong. It’s made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, which gives an other-worldly sturdiness to the outer shell, while a scratch-resistant screen defends against bumps and bruises. And, a high-tech, invisible nano-coating shields against the unexpected splash.

You’ve got needs, and Motorola RAZR V knows it. That’s why there’s SMARTACTIONS™, an app that intelligently automates everyday tasks and suggests ways to personalize your phone and make your life easier. Most importantly, SMARTACTIONS gives you the power to get through your day without running out of steam. The Battery Extender will notice when you’re running low and change your phone’s settings to preserve whatever juice is left so you won’t be without power. It’s the SMARTACTION current users love the most.

There’s a lot more SMARTACTIONS can do for you. Let’s say you’re at the gym for spin class, SMARTACTIONS will recognize your headphones and automatically launch your favourite workout playlist. In meetings or in class, SMARTACTIONS has your back – the app silences your phone’s ringer and then auto-replies to calls and texts so you’ll never be “that person” whose phone goes off in the middle of a presentation. That’s smart.

“We’re thrilled to launch another RAZR into the Canadian market,” says Michelle Digulla, general manager, Motorola Mobility Canada. “Motorola RAZR V will be available through a wide selection of channels – bringing the iconic Motorola design and smarter smartphone experience to Canadians.”

Motorola RAZR V doesn’t just turn heads and keep you going through the day, it also lets you get creative. Snap pics with the 8 megapixel camera, see or be seen with the front-facing camera, and save memories in HD with 1080p video capture featuring image stabilization so your shots will be steady and your playback smooth. Share special moments instantly with your friends on Google+™ or Facebook®.

Harness the power of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and access over 600,000 apps and games on Google PlayTM, as well as millions of books and thousands of movies and TV shows. Watch everything on the huge, high-res 4.3” ColourBoost TM display which supports a wide range of more vibrant colours for greater detail and sharper, clearer images.


Motorola RAZR V will be available in Q3 to Bell Mobility, Best Buy, Future Shop, Tbooth Wireless, The Mobile Shop, The Source, Videotron, Virgin Mobile, WIND Mobile, WIRELESSWAVE
