Since its public unveiling last week, a great deal of attention has been paid to the newly announced Droid Razr smartphone from Motorola Mobility. On the morning of October 27, it was made available for pre-order on the Verizon Wireless website, currently priced at $299.99 when purchased with a new or upgraded two-year wireless contract, according to TechCrunch.

The news source reports that the phone is expected to do brisk sales in the pre-order stages, which would bode well for its chances after its official release. Currently, it is only available from Verizon, but speculations have surfaced suggesting that it may be offered to AT&T wireless customers as well, sometime in the near future.

Reported technical specifications of the Droid Razr include a body that is only 7.1 millimeters thick, in keeping with the ultra-thin physical dimensions seen in previous Razr models. It will be powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and the 2.3 Gingerbread version of Android, soon to be supplanted by the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. Details of compatible smartphone accessories are not yet available.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Motorola Mobility shipped 4.4 million of 11 million total smartphones in the second quarter of 2011.
