Blue makes a lot of things better - berries, rhapsodies, alternative percussion groups. Whether or not Motorola's RAZRs look better with an azure paint job is something we'll leave up to you. Verizon is now selling blue versions of both the mid-range DROID RAZR M and the flagship DROID RAZR HD, though the latter is more of a trim than a full paint job. Both versions were spotted by notable tipster @evleaks about three week ago. The blue RAZRs are available for purchase online now, and should be in Verizon retail stores starting today.

The DROID RAZR M seems to get the lion's share of the paint job here. The metal casing surrounding the screen and sides are painted a sky blue, with the exception of the power button, which gets the same silver color as the exposed hex screws. The blue portion of the DROID RAZR HD is even skinnier, just a couple of millimeters on the band surrounding the screen, though here the power button is blue while the volume buttons are silver. Since the screen bezels and backplates of both phones remain black, the effect is jarring at best and downright ugly at worst.

At the moment, the DROID RAZR M is available for free, while the HD is $99.99. Both prices are for two-year contracts or renewals - the phones will cost you $549 and $599 without them, respectively. There's no indication of a blue version of the DROID RAZR MAXX HD in the pipeline.

    If these were the facebook phones I presume it might sell better than the HTC First.

      OT: I'm loving the new season. It started out really awkwardly, but once the threads started to come together I found it just as good as anything that came before it. Lots of external and internal references to dig through, jokes everywhere, and a new non-linear format. Brilliant.

        I found it disconcerting how many people thought the watermarks were a real thing. I mean it's ok if you don't get a joke, but thinking Netflix actually pirated the footage? buzzfeed
        even had to explain that it wasn't real.

        Also, there are many local jokes residents of the LA/OC area can appreciate.

        • mechapathy

          Damn, really? If those people didn't get the joke, they could have just something'd it.

  • andy_o

    It's obviously an Arrested Development reference, because everything is.

  • mechapathy

    Damn. I don't know why, but I really like this.

    • Mauro

      I feel you bro, I really like it too and I don't know why.

    Message to Verizon, judging by the comments below, people are not even paying attention to this mediocre announcement.

    My son is on his third RAZR HD! Each one had the 'gorilla' screen and they all shattered when dropped from distances of three feet or less. His carrier won't accept any responsibility for the false advertising of this product, namely that it's screen is unbreakable!

    This is the worst phone ever. I am on my third on my wife is on her second. As well as a guy at work is on his third one. My first one just turned off and never came back on. The second one the speaker went out. I would like this phone if each one would last for more than a month.

    Whatta P.O.S.! It Froze twice while trying to write this review! This is the 3 Rd phone in a month! Drops calls with Verizon reps while they try to troubleshoot...Motorola rep blames Verizon service....Freezes constantly, I need to hurry or this will be lost.....What a pos service and phone. They be violated terms of service, for months. Good luck getting your early disconnect fee. Your pos phone and service isn't worth
