The Motorola RAZR M and RAZR HD have been confirmed to be exclusive devices to Telstra, both running on its new 4G network; with the RAZR HD already in stores while the RAZR M will be out in November.
Both phones are being touted in having style, speed and endurance; and the RAZR HD is said to be an ‘all-day phone’ (yes, be sceptical about that claim because it depends on how you use your phone). The RAZR HD has a 4.7-inch AMOLED 720p HD display, a dual core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone also features a Gorilla Glass-protected screen and a body made from KEVLAR fibre.
The RAZR M, however, features a 4.3-inch AMOLED Advanced display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a VGA front-facing camera and an 8-megapxiel rear camera. The phone’s body is made with KEVLAR fibre and has a screen protected with Gorilla Glass.
Both phones will also have Chrome installed as the default browser (probably because Google now owns the company); and Motorola has confirmed that these devices will be upgradeable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – currently these phones will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich. Telstra has also confirmed that these phones will support HD Voice – which apparently makes it easier to chat on a busy street because of noise cancellation technology.
The RAZR HD is out now on a $60 Everyday Connect Plan with a $5 monthly handset repayment fee – that also includes $600 worth of calls, unlimited SMS to Australian mobile numbers and 1GB of data. The RAZR M will be $0 upfront on the same plan when it comes out in November.
