Unlocked Motorola DROID RAZR "Developer Edition" now available on pre-order, U.S. version coming soon
Motorola's DROID RAZR "Developer Edition" features the same specs as the GSM unlocked RAZR, with the addition of an unlockable bootloader
Motorola has unveiled a developer version of the Motorola DROID RAZR with an unlockable bootloader. The device was revealed in a post on Motorola's developer blog, with a link to pre-order the new smartphone straight from Moto.
The RAZR Developer Edition is nearly identical to the GSM DROID RAZR, adding only the unlockable bootloader. That specific feature though is something many developers in the Android community have been clamoring for for quite a while now.
With the supposed added risk of a developer phone, Motorola is not including a warranty with the handset. That means if you break your phone, you're out of luck. Sorry devs.
The DROID RAZR Developer Edition's other features include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and 16GB of internal storage. The device will also launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread with an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich arriving in Q1 2012.
The Motorola DROID RAZR Developer Edition is available for pre-order through the Motorola shop in Europe for $657. The OEM also plans to make a developer RAZR available in the United States on Verizon Wireless sometime soon.
