Motorola Mobility has announced its intentions to bring the super-thin RAZR smartphone
to the shores of Japan. The handset will look very similar to the device released here in the states -- 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, an eight megapixel shooter with 1080p video capture and 32GB of storage -- only minus the LTE radio and Droid branding. The handset will be available in "shadow black" or "glacier white" and land on KDDI's network at an undisclosed date for an undisclosed price. The full press release awaits your scrutiny after the break.
Motorola Mobility Reveals Motorola RAZR™ in Japan: Impossibly Thin Meets Head-turning Innovation
Slick design and features with wow factor
TOKYO – Jan. 16, 2012 – Today, Motorola Mobility Japan, Inc, announced the Japan launch of the incredibly thin and lightweight Motorola RAZR™ smartphone. This smartphone is loaded with sexy curves. Its sculpted glass face, diamond-cut aluminum accents and hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display reflect museum-worthy industrial design, while its KEVLAR® fiber, splash-guard coating, and scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen make this work of art a force to be reckoned with.
While they're still dazzled by the outside, hit them with what's on the inside. A cool 1GB of RAM hooks up with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android™ 2.3.6 to get you a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. Rock your playlists while you check your email, breeze through photos – all at the same time, without delay. Watch movies on a screen that sports a wider range of colors than most LCD HDTVs. And when you're tired of watching (as if), use the cinematic-quality front-facing 720p HD video camera and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with even sharper 1080p HD video capture to create your own movies – all with image-stabilization technology to turn your life into art without breaking a sweat.
Work Smart, Not Hard
Government-grade encryption protects your email, contacts and calendar so you are business ready. Even your strict IT manager will be impressed. Work smart with Smart Actions – a preloaded app on Motorola RAZR that lets you automate everyday tasks and enable better battery life. Smart Actions can turn down the ringer when you step into work, change the Bluetooth and GPS settings when you get home to save battery, or send a text to someone if you miss their call – letting you focus more on what's actually important.
And Motorola RAZR's no slouch with damage-resistance, either. It's armed with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass and a splash-guard coating, even on the electrical boards inside. Because a museum-quality device demands museum-quality protection.
Motorola RAZR is powerful on its own but when combined with Motorola's accessories, you unleash a world of possibilities. Use the Motorola HD Dock or HD Station to let loose Motorola's revolutionary webtop application, giving you the power to edit documents, browse the Web with a full Firefox browser, and connect to an HDTV or monitor, speakers and other peripherals for large-screen entertainment.
