Now This Is Thin!

If you want thin, it will be hard to beat the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR. Talk about thin: the specs claim it is 7.1mm, which is a hair thinner than the current iPod Touch. It’s nice to see other phone designers coming up with gorgeous designs, without directly aping Apple (I’m looking at you Samsung. The images of their latest phone looks like a Photoshopped iPhone). While this was developed prior to the Google deal, this could be an indication of what could come next. Motorola had a history of building a home-run device (like the original RAZR), and then milking it for all it was worth. I expect Google may change that a bit, by creating a culture that wants to keep pushing the edges. It takes devices like this to give Apple a run for their money in terms of setting the direction of an industry.
