Motorola Mobility Unveils Motorola RAZR M™, the Full Screen Smartphone that Fits in Your Hand

Impossibly compact with superfast speed and unstoppable power on the SoftBank 4G1 network

TOKYO – October 9, 2012 – Motorola Mobility Japan Inc. today announced the launch in Japan of Motorola RAZR M™, a full-screen smartphone that packs a 4.3-inch screen into a lightweight and compact design that fits in the palm of your hand. It will be available within the year exclusively from Softbank Mobile Corp.

Motorola RAZR M pushes its high-definition Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch screen to the edge with an extremely slender bezel. The border you typically find on smartphones is virtually, in a word, gone. The big screen in a compact body makes it much easier to carry and type emails or text messages on Motorola RAZR M. You can also watch movies and YouTube™ videos and browse the Web using Chrome™ for Android on a wider screen.

With the blazing data speed of the SoftBank 4G network, you’ll forget what it’s like to wait as you download files or enjoy video chat and streaming media. And although it’s a light 128g, Motorola RAZR M still packs all the power of a 2,000mAh2 battery, so you can stay connected all day long. With Motorola Mobility’s exclusive SMARTACTIONS™, you can easily create rules that will automatically optimize phone settings based on time of day or location, so you get even more out of your battery. SMARTACTIONS can even learn from your behavior and make suggestions, so you spend more time doing what you want and less time worrying about your settings or battery.

Motorola RAZR M also brings the best Android™ experience with the latest Google services pre-installed, including the high-speed Chrome™ browser; Google Play™ with access to more than 600,000 apps, games and movies; and Google Maps™ with voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation.

Pick up Motorola RAZR M and be amazed at just how much can fit into the palm of your hand.
