“Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility unit announced three new smartphones from its RAZR line on Wednesday afternoon, one of which will launch next week priced at $99,” Dan Gallagher reports MarketWatch.
“Motorola showed off the RAZR HD, an update to its thin RAZR model that offers a sharper display. Another new device was the RAZR HD Maxx that offered a larger battery,” Gallagher reports. “Motorola also unveiled the new RAZR M, which comes with a smaller screen than the other models, in a body casing that the company said was similar to the best-selling iPhone 4S from Apple Inc. That model will go on sale next week at Verizon Wireless for a price of $99.”
