The phone revealed Tuesday is thin, like the old Razr. Otherwise, the new Droid Razr is a different breed from the folding "dumb" phone that made Motorola the second-largest phone maker in the world, before Apple Inc. overturned the order of the industry with its iPhone in 2007.
The new phone has a big touchscreen and runs Google Inc.'s Android operating system. Verizon Wireless will sell it for $300 with a two-year contract. Pre-orders start Oct. 27. The Droid Razr will use Verizon's new LTE high-speed wireless data network.
