As we have previously reported, Despite Motorola hosting a co-produced event with Verizon to introduce the Droid RAZR HD, the Big Red will not be the first carrier in the world to carry the device. Canadian carrier Rogers, will be selling the device first. Following Motorola’s announcement via their twitter account, Rogers announced exclusive availability of the smartphone as well — known as the RAZR HD LTE in Canada.
Motorola’s flagship device features a 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display made of Gorilla Glass, is 8.4mm thin, has an 8MP camera that captures 1080p HD videos, has Moto’s “SMARTACTIONS” that extends the battery life to give you a “full day” of use, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 chipset, LTE connectivity, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (4.1 Jelly Bean will be coming to the handset at some point).
Pricing wise, the phone is at $99.99 with a three-year contract though it can also be purchased outright for $599.99. The device, however, is not quite on Rogers’ website just yet, but it is available at local brick-and-mortar stores. Currently Americans are still waiting for news of a release date as Verizon has yet to announce a definitive release date. DroidDog will continue to keep an eye out for any new information coming from Verizon on this new Motorola smartphone.
