The company had earlier let slip that when the purple Droid Razr makes an appearance on the website, it would be tagged at $199. Besides the black Droid Razr that’s purchasable now, the one dipped in white will also see its price slashed down to $199, but the drop will come into effect from January 23 onwards. Potential users who had second thoughts with regards to purchasing this mobile phone can now get their hands on the 7.1 mm sleek device for a lower amount.

The handset is adorned by a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display designed with Kevlar fiber as well as Corning Gorilla Glass for making it scratch resistant. Possessing 4G LTE capabilities, it runs on the Gingerbread platform which is upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich. The smartphone can also serve as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot for as many as eight Wi-Fi enabled devices.
