Just hours after photos have been leaked in the tech blogosphere, Motorola and Verizon Wireless have finally unveiled the LTE-capable Droid RAZR smartphone, said to the the thinnest of its kind. Motorola brags that this device is “faster, thinner, smarter, and stronger”–as repeatedly emphasized during its launch event–than that basic smartphone you are holding.

The latest Android-powered phone from Motorola takes its design cues heavily from other Droid devices, as it looks pretty much like the Droid X or X2. It has that same hump along the upper back edge, but with less weight and thinner profile at 7.1 millimeters. The Droid RAZR even comes in a Kevlar fiber casing which, according to Motorola, withstands the “back pocket test.” The casing is not the only “rugged” part of the device, as it also has a stainless steel core and Motorola’s Splash Guard technolgy.

This smartphone brags about its 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED 960 x 540 screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1GB of RAM, microUSB port, HDMI out, and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. As for the camera, the Droid RAZR comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter with dual-LED flash and autofocus and video recording capability at 1080p resolution. It runs for up to 12.5 hours of talk time and 8.9 hours of video playback.

Motorola also packs the phone with support for its MotoCast application, which streams multi-media content from the PC to the smartphone. Business-savvy users would be delighted that the Droid RAZR will also have corporate access to e-mail, ability to view and edit Microsoft Word documents, Citrix Receiver for remote access to desktop, and added password enforcement. It even allows users to sync their new MotoACTV watch with the Droid RAZR, enabling them to text messages and check for phone calls while jogging or exercising in the gym.

The Motorola Droid RAZR will be available for pre-order beginning October 27, while in-store and online availability begins in November, with a suggested retail price of $299 with two-year Verizon contract.
