Verizon just pinged our inbox to let us know that the 16GB version of the DROID RAZR in black is now available online for $199. The white and purple versions (our hands-on) will be available on January 23 for the same price. If you are confused as to what the “16GB version” is, I’ll try to clean that up. What Big Red and Motorola have done, is reintroduce the original RAZR with 16GB of internal storage and then left out an SD card, bringing the price down $100. Since they want to move the RAZR MAXX at $299, they had do something like this or this phone would have just been passed up. It should be noted that the 16GB version will still have an SD card slot, so you can simply swap in your own card to get additional storage. It really is the same exact RAZR that was released back in November, only it doesn’t come pre-loaded with external storage.
