More on the Motorola RAZR3

moto-razr3-2

We have to admit we were pretty blown away by the responses from our exclusive pics of the Motorola RAZR3. So with this in mind (and the fact that it’s Sunday) we thought we’d have a little fun today and share a gallery’s worth of pictures and information about how this particular phone, which also happens to star in a YouTube video, came to be. All of this — and more — is available right after the jump.

First and foremost, let’s take a moment to talk about the phone itself. For something that wasn’t a smartphone, it would have had enough features and functionality to make Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Average happy had it not been killed off. Here are the key specs of the prototype:

  • 850/1900MHz UMTS/HSDPA
  • Quad-band EDGE
  • 420MHz ARM11 processor
  • 109mb RAM / 19mb ROM
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • Symbian UIQ OS
  • 2.2″ QVGA internal display
  • 2″ QVGA external display (touchscreen)
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Ad hoc internet sharing
  • Mesh WAN support
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • microSD support up to 16GB
  • Opera Mini browser
  • MicroUSB

Now that the specs are out of the way, here’s the story behind how this particular engineering prototype surfaced this week. Travis, the gentleman who now owns it, recently spotted an eBay listing for a unnamed mobile phone that was literally in pieces. Immediately recognizing it as the same phone a Motorola rep once showed when he used to work at Rogers, Travis immediately bought the phone so he could assemble it and bring it back to life.

Pretty crazy to think this thing was scheduled to debut at the same time as the DROID, right? Anyway…

Thanks, Travis!
