Motorola outs Jelly Bean friendly phones

Razr gang

3 Big data security analytics techniques

While Nokia was showing off its new Windows Phone 8-based Lumias, the Google-owned Motorola Mobility was unwrapping three Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphones from its Razr line.

The Razr M, which is destined for a worldwide release, follows the trend toward bigger screens. It has a 4.3in panel, though the handset is narrower than rival offerings, Motorola claimed, because the display goes (almost) edge to edge. It's a qHD panel - so 960 x 540 pixels.

Motorola Razr M and HD

The Razr HD has a 4.7in, 1280 x 720 screen, as does the Razr MAXX HD, which is a Razr HD with a bigger battery - enough for 32 hours' operation, the vendor claimed. That said, the HD gives you a full day's operation, so it's no slouch in this department. Both have an 8Mp rear camera and a 1.3Mp front-facer. The M has an 8Mp camera too, but only a 0.3Mp job for video calls.

All three are backed with a kevlar battery hatch cover and fronted by Corning Gorilla Glass.

Motorola Razr Maxx HD

As we say, they will all run ICS initially, but Motorola has promised Jelly Bean upgrades "soon".

The LTE-enabled Maxx HD will be US-only releases initially, but the M will be available globally in HSPA form. Ditto the HD, which will also be available with LTE. Special developer-centric versions of the M and HD will also be made available with unlockable bootloaders and, if so opened, no warranty. The developer M will cost $550 (£346) and ships next week. ®
