Smartphone season unofficially started last week with the release of the iPhone 4S. As Android phone makers try to capture their share of the lucrative Christmas market, the volleying for differentiators takes different angles to be as appealing as possible to consumers.

For the Motorola Droid Razr, their gimmick is thickness (or lack thereof). This “impossibly thin”smartphone is equipped with a stainless-steel core, a Gorilla Glass screen and a nanotechnology Splash-guard. Motorola Mobility President Sanjay Jha said the 7.1mm-thick device is the world’s thinnest.

Here are some of the specs:

  • Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS
  • Syncing through MotoCast
  • 4.3-inch Screen
  • qHD Resolution with Super AMOLED
  • 1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor

Jha said it will be the “first device to download HD movies from Netflix.”

The company described MotoCast as the most important feature on the phone.

“You can stream content from your computer straight to your pocket (or purse) so your personal content is always within reach,” the company said in a press release. “And, because you don’t have to upload to a third-party site, you’re saving time while gaining peace of mind. That’s right — your files stay safe because they stay with you.”

A 2-year Verizon contract puts the phone at $299.99. It will be available early next month.

  1. Great! There is bit of competition held for make thinnest smart phone. Most of smart phones makers companies are doing all efforts for making thinnest smart phone. Now I waited who will give challenge to this phone.

  2. This phone would be better looking (without the ridiculous “hump” and sell like hotcakes if they would make the bottom totally flat and fill the space with extra battery, creating a phone that would probably last a week without recharging while using 4G.   Just a thought.
