With a sculpted glass face, diamond-cut aluminium accents and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, the RAZR also sports KEVLAR fiber and Corning Gorilla Glass to help the screen stand up to scratches and scrapes. Every part of Motorola RAZR is also protected by a splash-guard coating – even the electrical boards inside.

“With the new Motorola RAZR we have re-imagined an icon. The most captivating Android-powered smartphone on the scene, it’s thinner than your friends’ smartphone and better looking too!” said Megan Nicholas, mobile devices lead, Motorola Mobility South Africa.

A 1GB of RAM hooks up with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android 2.3 gives users a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before.

Motorola RAZR comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast app, giving users the power to stream or download content from their home or work computer straight to their device, so personal content is always within reach.

The RAZR will be available with Vodacom in November, while a recommended retail price of approximately R6999, and it will also be available on contract at R269 per month x24 on Business Call.

“We partnered with Vodacom to launch Motorola RAZR, and we know Vodacom customers will be lining up to be the first to have the next generation Motorola RAZR,” Nicholas concluded.
