Motorola rolls out three new Droids

Written by Peter Scott

Krait and ICS all the way

Motorola, or should we say Google is rolling out the red carpet for Apple’s new iPhone with the US-centric launch of three new Droid devices. All three phones are to ship with Android 4.0.4 and they are powered by the same Qualcomm 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of memory.

The new range starts with the RAZR M, a compact mid range phone with a clever edge-to-edge 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display in 960x540. With practically no bezel to speak of, the screen is clearly a sign of things to come and it looks impressive. The RAZR M measures 60.9 x 122.5 x 8.3mm and weighs 126g. With a 2000mAh and a snappy dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM 8960 chip, battery life should be good. It will ship in white or black, with 8GB of storage and a microSD slot.

The RAZR HD kicks things up a notch, with a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED screen in 1280x720. Like the rest of the series, it’s powered by a 1.5GHz processor, but it comes with 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD slot. It has a 2530mAh battery slapped into a 67.9 x 131.9 x 8.4mm Kevlar body and it weighs 146g, which is not bad all things considered.

Motorola-Droids-2012

The RAZR HD MAXX is designed with mobile addicts in mind. It has 32GB of onboard storage and a massive 3,300mAh battery. However, it did not end up too bulky and 67.9 x 131.9 x 9.3mm and 157g sounds very good considering the size of the battery.

All three phones share the same 1080p capable 8-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0 support, abgn WiFi, A-GPS, GPS, Glonass and compass. Also, Jelly Bean should hit all three in a matter of weeks.

Best of all, Motorola is offering a $100 discount to owners of last generation Droids that will not get the Jelly Bean update. It is a sleek move and a nice way of rewarding brand loyalty.
