As promised, Motorola has started shipping the RAZR M, the smartphone that they introduced earlier this month with the (rather specific) distinction of being “the most compact 4.3-inch 4G LTE smartphone”.
Despite the relatively large screen size, the phone sports a really slim bezel surrounding it, giving it a smaller frame. Priced at $99.99 with a two-year contract from Verizon (after a $50 mail-in rebate), the phone offers a nice spec for LTE shoppers on a budget. The phone is headlined by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, a front-facing cam that’s capable of 720p recording, and a rear eight-megapixel snapper.
Other features include a 2,000mAh battery and a 8GB of storage that can be expanded with a microSD card slot for adding up to 32GB more. Like a number of Motorola’s recent releases, the RAZR M also comes with a number of exterior features that give it a little more toughness in the form of a Gorilla Glass panel up front and a Kevlar plate at the back.
The RAZR M will ship with Android 4.0.4, and is available in black or white colors.
