The past hour has been full of Motorola this, and RAZR that for most of us here in the US, but what about our brothers (and sisters) to the north? If you want some RAZR HD love, Rogers is the place to be. The only place to be, in fact, at least for an LTE version of the device.
Motorola just announced that the newly-unveiled RAZR HD will be making its Canadian debut exclusively on Rogers Wireless in all of its 4.7" glory. The device is virtually identical to Verizon's offering:
- 4.7" SAMOLED HD 720p display with Gorilla Glass
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor (most likely MSM8960 Snapdragon)
- Android 4.0.4
- Rogers 4G LTE
- 1GB RAM
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 16GB (12GB usable) internal storage for HD
- 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
- microSD slot
- 2500mAh battery for RAZR HD
- NFC-enabled (no mention of Wallet)
- Android 4.0
Much like the US Droid RAZR HD, there's no certain release date yet, only that it will be release "this fall."
