The Moto RAZR is back . . . Kinda.

At approximately 2PM CST today, Motorola will be releasing the new DROID Razr.  Remember the Razr?  It was the coolest phone of its time.  Everyone had one, some even had 2 (you know who you are).  It was slim, it had text messaging, it went on the Internet, and…..well that’s all.  But for the time, it was a great phone.

Now, Motorola is banking on the strength of the name to help is slumping wireless phone sales.  What they seem to have forgotten is that when the Razr first came out, there was nothing like it.  It set a new standard for how phones should work and look.  With the DROID Razr, they basically took the DROID they have and made it thinner.  Don’t get me wrong, that’s a big deal in terms of how they are able to fit all that technology in a slimmer package.  But in reality, it’s not the game changer that the original Razr was.

Motorola Brewing another Tablet

Based on an FCC filing for August 25th, it looks like Motorola has submitted a tablet for the governing body to approve.  As of now, all that can be deciphered about the device is that it is a tablet, and may have a camera.  Motorola has contracted Compal, a Korean ODM (Original Device Manufacturer) to manufacture the device, according to the letter of authorization submitted to the FCC.

The Samsung Tablet

Yesterday, Sprint announced that it would be adding the Samsung Galaxy Tab to their line-up.  They are offering it at a lower price point than Verizon.  When a “wanting”consumer chooses the Sprint iteration, they get the device for a measly $499.  They also must commit to a 2 year agreement and choose from the $20 2GB plan or the $60 5GB plan.  Overall, the Tab seems like it’ll be a cool little device to have to do “stuff” with.  I’m still trying to figure out what would be the best use for this device.  Forgive me, I’m just barely getting used to me iPad.

The key word there is “little”.  As a reluctant iPad owner (I’ll explain that another time), I can attest to the fact that anything less than 9.7″ is just a really big phone, or a netbook without a keyboard.  Actually, most netbooks have at least 9-10″ screens.  There’s probably going to be a lot of zoomin’ going on with this Tab.

And Sprint really dropped the ball by not shooting for a 4G version.  I mean really!  It would have given them an easy edge over the Verizon version.  At least until Verizon launches LTE and Sprint shuts down the WiMax…..

Anyway, I think the concept of the device is great, and that Samsung can do great things in this segment.  I do feel that it was kind of rushed to market because no one was trying to take on the iPad.  Well, this surely isn’t going to take any significant marketshare from Mr. Jobs.
