Motorola RAZR

Motorola RAZR

Pronounced ‘razor’, RAZR is a cellphone series by Motorola which ran between 2004 and 2007. The RAZR series was immensely popular, especially the RAZR V3 which remains the best-selling flip phone in the world. Indeed, the V3 sold an impressive 130 million units in the space of 4 years. Despite being discontinued, the popularity of Motorola RAZR cellphones has endured to present day.

Much of the Motorola RAZR V3’s success is due to its iconic design. Marketed originally as a fashion phone, Motorola invested a lot of effort into the design of the V3. The RAZR was the slimmest flip cellphone on the market at the time of its release. The phone has an aluminum body and color screens on both the front and inside of the phone. The outside screen is protected by a layer of glass, giving the phone a premium feel. Inside the phone there is an electroluminescent keypad crafted from a single piece of metal wafer.

Another attraction of the Motorola RAZR is that it is available in a whole range of colors. Originally a silver model was released, but, following the popularity of that model, Motorola rereleased the phone in a number of different colors including matte black, several shades of pink, green and orange. The latter two colors are quite hard to find though.

Motorola also released an immensely popular red version of the Motorola RAZR V3 to help raise money for charities helping fight AIDS, Malaria and TB. Motorola also teamed up with Dolce and Gabbana to produce a special version of the Motorola V3i. The Dolce and Gabbana version of the phone has an aluminum gold body and the keypad inside is also gold. In addition, this version of the popular cellphone comes with a branded leather pouch to keep the phone safe and a D&G phone charm.

In terms of technical specification, the cellphone is capable of texting, calling and receiving emails. In addition, it has a built in MP3 player so you can listen to your favorite songs on the go. Most versions of the Motorola RAZR feature a single camera on the front of the device with a VGA, 1.23MP or 2MP sensor. However, the RAZR V3x is the first phone in the lineup to feature two cameras.

Unfortunately, the Motorola RAZR series has been discontinued which makes it hard for individuals to get their hands on a new RAZR cellphone. However, there is a huge market for secondhand and reconditioned Motorola RAZRs. Be particularly careful if you decide to purchase a RAZR cellphone from an international seller as some international handsets are not compatible with US wireless technology.
