Verizon Wireless will start selling pre-orders Oct. 27 for the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR smartphone.

The phone will cost $300 with a two-year contract and a data plan. The DROID RAZR will run Android's 2.3.5 Gingerbread mobile operating system. The 4G LTE enabled phone will feature a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP4430 dual-core processor and 1GB of memory. It will have 16GB of internal memory with an expandable microSD slot, supporting up to a 32GB card. The screen will be 4.3-inches, 540 by 960 Super AMOLED qHD display.

It will also have an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone will also be able to capture HD video.

The DROID RAZR is characterized by its extremely thin design, only 2.8-inches thick. It will also be 5.15-inches tall and 2.71-inches across, and will weigh 4.47 oz.

The little phone will also be fairly tough with a strengthened stainless steel casing, a Kevlar-fiber back cover, and a Gorilla Glass display. The phone will also have a spill resistant coating.

As far as connectivity is concerned, the phone will feature an 802.11 b/n/g Wi-Fi, support Stereo Bluetooth Class 2, have an HDMI output and support DLNA media streaming.

The phone will also probably be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0 mobile OS upgrade, early next year.

Customers can make pre-orders on the Verizon online store or by calling 1-800-2-JOIN-IN. The DROID RAZR is expected to release Nov. 10.
