Purple DROID RAZR Headed for January 23 Launch

Verizon announced all kinds of new 4G LTE devices at CES this week, but one thing that remained absent from almost all of those announcements were release dates. Scratch the purple DROID RAZR off of that list, as we have just learned that Big Red has targeted January 23 for the “all channel” launch. The only question now is,will we see the RAZR MAXX and DROID 4 on that date as well? The black and white versions of the RAZR at just 16GB are also hitting shelves on the 23.

We have some glamour shots of the purple RAZR here.

Cheers ___!

    I was almost def shooting for the Gnex when I got a little extra cash…but the Maxx is prob going to be a beast..and the rezound is 199 now…hmmm really don’t want to use this last NE2 unless theres something i can’t live without.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Bingo… I keep holding out and will wait until after next months electronic show to finally make a move. So far, nothing is of interest to me.. nope, not even that lame Nexus.

    I bought two pairs. Cheap, good quality, you can
    go and ship with there

  • Granted

    That is a very nice looking phone. If my contact wasn’t up in March I’d probably buy this. Maybe the Nexus as well, but I’d have to listen to the back speaker on it first. I’m interested to see what new faandangled overpriced piece of tech I don’t need, is available when my contract is up. I still think ill just use a video phone watch and see how retarded I can look talking to my wrist in public.

  • reyalP

    Definitely, a woman’s phone!  I think that was there target market.  Razr for the ladies and Bionic for the men.

    Go Vikings! err, next year of course!

    too bad it cannot hold a data signal and does not know east from west.  so sad such a great phone cannot do basic features.  questions:  merely use Maps and see if it can point east, west and actually find north..

    • TechGeek

      exactly.  then i read people blame Google.  it is not the App.  it is the phone not reading the mag sensor correctly.

    • DingleBerry

      yea, what’s with the data issue.  several times per day I pick it up and see no 4G.  symbol is there but it is white and no data.  so i sit and wait and wait….and wait then it works again.

        If the screen is off it conserves battery by turning off the radio if it isn’t actively being used

        • DaManThatKnows

          brilliant.  actually it has an issue holding on to 4G just like the G-Nex.  CDMA has a 2.54 second slot cycle (slot 1) so it wakes, looks and sleeps.  But if I wake it up it should grab data and work.  however, it does not several times per day.

      not had a problem with my razr(except when the vzw nationwide 4G outages occurred)…someone got a bad apple out of the bushel? 

  • Infernox51

    They should make a Purple Droid RAZR Maxx 4G Barney Edition.

    • Guest34567

      So what’s the big deal, so it’s purple? Does purple give you better signal quality?

  • http://www.linkedin.com/in/PhilHamlin Phil Hamlin

    Oh snap.  The same phone that has been available for a while now, but in purple.  Dang.  How do they expect average joe consumers to be able to keep up with this breakneck pace of innovation?

    When did Verizon start releasing phones on Mondays? Haven’t we seen screen shots like these before?

  • Anonymous

    Launch this MAXX this month? Nah, try half a year later after a major redesign and the launch of a bunch of other devices that far surpass it in a variety of ways.

    Motorola wouldn’t have it any other way. <3

    every time i see the blockbuster app on verizon i stop and think what the hell.. how many years was the deal for?  does anyone use it?  it won’t die.

    • Granted

      I have the exact same sentiment when I look at it. I wonder if they charge me 99 cents if I don’t rewind my movie after streaming it? I remember some assclown Blockbuster employee actually getting visibly angry at me because I forgot to rewind a movie I returned. I worked for at least 6 video rental chains and mom and pop stores throughout my working career, and never once did I give a crap about that. That was what the numerous rewind-only machines were for. But a vagina-deprived moron will always be a eunuch no matter the circumstances.

      Agreed, pretty funny (sad?) that their actual stores are closing by the month but the company lives on in our phones thanks to big reds seemingly never ending deal with them.

        blockbuster is not completely going out of business, they’re joining the ranks of netflix and redbox, and only running online, through the mail, and out of kiosks…but i understand your point

    Here’s what I find funny. Motorola’s CEO said Tuesday that “Carriers don’t want seven stock android devices on their shelves.” Then promptly releases the fourth ot fifth version of the RAZR that will inevitably stock Verizon’s shelves with possibly two or three more versions on the same phone in the pipeline. Hmmm.. Am I the only one scratching my head?

      You have to take what they say at face value. Watch what they do. Its like there is a blur department that sanjays brother in law runs and therefore can’t be eliminated. Meanwhile the hardware department makes great product but only a few a year.

    ok seriously, what’s the difference besides the color?

    Why has there been so much coverage of this device?  The MAXX – if anything – deserves the coverage because of the new battery, but wtf?

    • Granted

      The difference besides the color is the color. But I’ve only ever bought one color of car before. If there had been different colors it would have never swayed my decision, mainly because choice sucks, seriously with poop on top.

    WHAT THE HELL Kellex? Why don’t you make another page called RAZR-life.com? All you have been posting all day is Razr and Moto stories!! You are such a fan boy!

        Yeah, cause a couple of drops of Razr news in a sea of Nexus news is totally unbiased.

    They should sell that on T-Mobile only.

    why..?

    • Anonymous

      Because my GF adored my RAZR before I traded it in for the Nexus, and she would buy this in a HEARTBEAT. Purple is her favorite color, and it’s Android (She currently has an iPhone 4 but keeps getting jealous of my RAZR/G-Nex :] )

      • FortitudineVincimus

        be very weary of a man who uses the word “adored”

  • Dmb1517

    My wife loves my Nexus, but a purple RAZR is too hard to pass up.
