Motorola was able to keep their latest flagship smartphone, the DROID RAZR hidden within the FCC prior to this mornings announcement. After Sanjay Jha took the stage to announce “the world’s thinnest smartphone”, the FCC approved the device. Obviously the RAZR comes packing Verizon’s LTE bands with CDMA 800 / 1900 support. Interestingly enough the device also comes with GSM and WCDMA connectivity, the documents also state that “this device supports voice call functionality over GSM and WCDMA on non-US cellular networks”.
Will the RAZR be a global device, if so it will be Verizon’s first LTE enabled global roamer. However if that is so, wouldn’t Verizon and Motorola have highlight this unique feature during their announcement?
