Do More With Your… Smartphone, Tablet and Accessories
Following the launch of DROID RAZR™ by Motorola, Motorola is at it again, expanding the limits of smartphones with a full family of DROID RAZR by Motorola products. With an array of colors, an impossibly thin design, storage options and software that’s second to none, there is now a DROID RAZR for everyone. The newest member of the family, DROID RAZR MAXX lasts more than twice as long – yes, 2X – as long as the leading competitor 1. And at just 8.99 mm, the device is still impossibly thin. DROID RAZR MAXX will be available at Verizon Wireless in the coming weeks for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
For people who need a smartphone that has all the personality they do, we give you DROID RAZR by Motorola in a kaleidoscopic color palette, including classic Black, pristine White, and now vibrant Purple. And with 16GB onboard memory, these devices deliver enough storage at a great price – only $199.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
These smartphones are definitely gorgeous on the outside. But the beauty of the DROID RAZR by Motorola family goes deeper than what you can see thanks to some truly groundbreaking software. Use MotoCast™2 to access your music, photos and videos from your home or work computers1 – virtually anywhere, anytime. Or set up Smart Actions to automate your settings to perform everyday tasks and extend battery life. Smart Actions can automatically set your ringer to silent when you get home from work, or turn off email while you sleep; saving you the trouble and more importantly, saving battery life.
The DROID RAZR family is compatible with a Smart Ecosystem of companion products that unleash the power of your smartphone at home, in the office and in the car: HD Station and Smart Controller to share videos and pictures on your HD TV, Lapdock™ 100 and 500 Pro to take advantage of webtop anywhere, anytime, and the Vehicle Navigation Dock for hands-free calling, navigation and music through your car speakers.
If that’s not enough, we also announced the world’s thinnest, most powerful 4G smartphone with a “computer-like” QWERTY keypad – DROID 4 by Motorola. Featuring the very latest Motorola Business Ready software tools like MotoCast, Smart Actions, and the webtop solution, DROID 4 by Motorola is the only tool you need to power your work life. So whether you’re in the office, holed up in a hotel room or sprawled out on a beach on some faraway tropical island, you’re always connected to the job.
The entire DROID RAZR Family and DROID 4 by Motorola will be upgraded to Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the second quarter of 2012.
Also on display at CES 2012, the two recently launched DROID XYBOARD by Motorola tablets. Both boast the blazing speeds of Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network and the power of dual-core 1.2 GHz processors for lightning-fast Web browsing and multi-tasking. The DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is optimized for productivity with support for easy note taking and markup using a precision tip stylus, included in the box. The XYBOARD 8.2 is perfect for portable entertainment with 2.1 adaptive virtual surround sound and a high-definition display for enjoying Netflix™ movies in up to HD quality, concert-like music and serious gaming. Both DROID XYBOARD tablets will get a boost when they are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich later in the year.
These recent flagship products are all Business Ready, offering some of the industry's most robust security and productivity features on Android. From U.S. Government-grade encryption on DROID RAZR, DROID RAZR MAXX and DROID 4 to powerful tools to help you get more done on DROID XYBOARD tablets, Motorola continues to drive the expansion of Android in enterprises -- and empower you to be more productive than ever before.
Motorola Mobility is also helping you flaunt your individuality with two budget-friendly, stylish and unique Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) powered smartphones available soon in Europe, Greater China and Latin America. MOTOLUXE™ is a hip, slim 4-inch edge-to-edge touchscreen device and Motorola DEFY™ MINI is dustproof and water-resistant, making it the ideal “life proof” device for active users. And they come in different shapes, sizes and colors – so you can choose a phone that best reflects your personality.
The Motorola booth wouldn’t be complete without highlighting our industry-leading Bluetooth® enabled accessories. Introducing the ROADSTER™ 2, the latest Bluetooth®3 enabled in-car speakerphone from Motorola that simply attaches to your visor and offers best-in-class noise cancellation which means your voice can be heard over the loud traffic or road noise outside. It also features the My MotoSpeak™ application which is the ultimate hands-free texting solution with the latest text-to-speech and speech-to-text technology. And don’t worry about having to search endlessly for your car in a massive parking lot or multi-tiered garage. Roadster 2 is designed to work with the new Motorola Car Finder app4, so you can always find where you’ve parked the car.
