Verizon Wireless’ flagship smartphone for the holiday season, the DROID RAZR, will finally become available Friday at 11:11 a.m. local time. The 7.1-millimeter thin smartphone features a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Advanced display, a dual-core 1.2GHz TI processor, 16GB of internal storage plus an expansion slot, an 8-megapixel primary camera capable of recording 1080p HD video, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera that supports 720p HD video chat, a 1,780 mAh battery and the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS. Verizon is offering the device for $299.99 on contract, but AmazonWireless is running a special on the new smartphone: $111.11 on contract for a limited time. There is a catch, however… the DROID RAZR is already back-ordered on Amazon, so those who take advantage of the $189 discount will have to wait an estimated 8-9 days before it ships.
