Motorola has been struggling to make an impact on the market with its smartphones since the past two years. Its slump began with the Atrix 4G and the XOOM tablet back in January 2011 and it only went downhill after that. Thankfully, the Verizon Droid Razr helped somewhat in resurrecting the brand. Then with the acquisition of the mobility division by Google, we began expecting new and fruitful things from the company. A hint of that was given when the company removed the traditional Moto Blur UI (which wasn’t all that great) to bring a more stock Android experience. Following the breed of the original Droid Razr were the Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and the Razr M which launched in fall 2012. The Droid Razr M in particular was an interesting addition to the mid-ranged segment as it brought forth impressive specs for a reasonable price.
And now, an exclusive “Platinum” version of the Droid Razr M has been made available, only via Best Buy. This smartphone basically has an all new color variant, and that’s pretty much it. However, it’s not only a change in the color of the body. Motorola has gone with an all grey finish for the smartphone, with blue colored hardware keys for that added edge. If you intend to stand out from the crowd of Droid Razr M owners, this is the best way to do it (unless they happen to own the same exclusive version). Besides this, the Droid Razr M features pretty much the same specs as other variants of the smartphone. If you’re interested in snatching this bad boy up, make sure you head over to the nearest Best Buy stores as you won’t find it anywhere else.
The mid ranged Droid Razr M packs a 4.3-inch qHD resolution display (540×960), a dual core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset along with 1GB of RAM. The smartphone packs 8GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 32GB via the microSD card slot. Also on board are an 8MP and a VGA camera sensor on the back and front respectively. The smartphone came out with Android 4.0.4 ICS but currently runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, thanks to the quick update by Motorola. Interestingly, the smartphone also has a Intel based sibling in the form of the Motorola Razr i.
