iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Motorola Droid Razr To Cost £455

The Motorola Droid Razr has just been released in the US on Verizon and the super-thin Android phone will come to the UK courtesy of Clove Technology; the online retailer has announced that the phone will be available here for £455 from the 1st of November.

The landing page is currently up here and points out that the phone will be known as the Razr in the UK rather than the Droid Razr (which may confuse some customers). It is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market with a thickness of just 7.1mm.

That's slimmer than the Galaxy S II, the iPhone 4 and the Xperia arc. Another key feature of the Razr is its build materials. Its outer casing is made up of Kevlar fibre, which is both light and super resistant. There's also a splash proof coating that protects it from spillage (but not from immersion).

The rest of the specifications resemble the Samsung Galaxy S II; a dual core 1.2GHz SoC (from TI), 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass, a 960x540 pixel resolution, an eight megapixel camera with full HD video, a front facing camera and a 1780mAh battery.

The Razr runs on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and features a number of new applications like Motocast which allows the phone to stream content to five computers and Smart Actions which combines every day tasks and your location.
