Motorola's next-generation flagship handset - the Motorola Droid RAZR - has launched in the US with an impressive spec sheet and a huge array of docks and accessories

The Motorola Droid RAZR is clearly a huge leap for the company, combining all their strengths with a whole host of new features and design cues. Full details on UK price and spec is not yet available, but based on the US details this is going to be some phone indeed.

Most notable is the MotoCast feature which will surely be classed as a rival to Apple’s iCloud, allowing users to stream media content from their personal or work computers from home onto their RAZR.

Confirmed as running Android 2.3.5 it's not yet known whether Motorola is using a new UI skinned specifically by Motorola or whether this is just a one off. Of course all eyes will be turned to the impending Android Ice Cream Sandwich release to see whether this new leviathan will be receiving the update to Android 4.0.

Motorola RAZR Specs:

Under the hood of this super-thin superphone is a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM making it both incredibly fast and fully capable of handling multi-tasking with little or not difficulty.

The camera is an impressive 8MP and allows full 1080p video-recording putting it right in line to face up against the new Apple iPhone 4S. There is of course a front-facing camera for video-calling as well.

The screen is a Super-AMOLED 4.3inch display wrapped in Corning Gorilla Glass making it as tough as it will be stunning to look at.

Motorola RAZR Features:

At just 7.1mm thin it’s officially the thinnest phone in the world, but as you can see from the specs above, that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not filled to the brim with power.

Protecting all that power is a diamond-cut aluminum chassis, KEVLAR panel on the back and of course the Gorilla Glass on the front, all of this is then backed-up by a splash-resistant coating making it truly an all-weather phone.

To make sure that you think there really isn’t anything this phone can do Motorola has also announced a slew of products that can be used in conjunction with the new RAZR including the new Lapdock 500 Pro which lets you use Firefox right off the Motorola RAZR echoing the success the company has had with the Motorola Atrix.
