Flip phone ‘Razr ‘ may soon return to fashion


The pride , love as well as fashion symbol
,the iconic flip phone “razr “ is all set to make 2nd innings to the
market after a long period.
It was first released in
2004, and eventually sold over 130 million units.
Now, Motorola is set to
bring back the Razr flip phone – as an android handset.
The firm, now owned by
Lenovo, has teased the new handset with an ad promising it will ‘flip back to
the Razr days of yesteryear and get ready for the future.’


New Motorola owner Lenovo promises a new RAZR
handset next month, which will ‘flip back to the Razr days of yesteryear and
get ready for the future.’

Motorola has teased the arrival of the
new handset in a gloriously 90s video (below) – and it’s expected to have a
similar form factor to the original, just with an added Android touchscreen.

Because of its striking appearance and thin profile,
the Razr was initially marketed as an exclusive fashion phone, but it was not
until a year later when the price was dropped it became a huge success, selling
over 50 million units by July 2006.


Over the Razr’s
four-year run, the V3 model sold more than 130 million units, becoming the
best-selling flipphone in the world to date.
In 2007, a second
version, called the Razr2 was unveiled, which has an external touch
screen.  
In October 2011,
Motorola resurrected the Razr brand for a line of Android smartphones; the
Droid Razr for Verizon Wireless, otherwise also known simply as ‘Motorola RAZR’
on other networks.
Celebrities such as Vogue’s Anna Wintour and Rihanna have recently been
pictured with the gizmos – and the gadgets are once again massive in Japan.
Analysts Gartner believe
that the boom is partly driven by older phone users who don’t want all the
features of smartphones – and that Western Europe could be next for a
flip-phone comeback.
