After Sanjay Jha stated that Motorola planned to slow down the release cycle, he didn’t mention if that would apply to releasing 3 versions of the same phone.
That’s right, the popular Motorola DROID RAZR now has a third variant. After Motorola announced the DROID RAZR MAXX only a week ago (features a larger capacity battery) has Motorola dropped a new bombshell. The following details were posted on the Motorola Community blog earlier today:
New Motorola RAZR Developer Edition will feature unlocked bootloader in Europe
We have some news for the community of people interested in unlockable/relockable bootloaders. Today, we announced a step forward in Europe with the availability of an unlockable version of our most in-demand product: the Motorola RAZR™ Developer Edition. This solution allows us to continue meeting our carrier and regulatory obligations, but also meets the needs being expressed by our developer community.
In the coming months, we also plan to introduce an unlockable developer device in the United States through MOTODEV, Motorola’s global developer network. Stay tuned to Motorola’s Developer site for additional info.
EU-based consumers can pre-order the Motorola RAZR Developer Edition through the Motorola Shop. Post-purchase, the MOTODEV site will contain all support info for unlocking, relocking and locating build files, as well as access to additional developer resources. The Developer Edition will have all the same great features as the Motorola RAZR: an impossibly thin design, hyper-vibrant Super AMOLED Advanced display, KEVLAR(R) fiber and more.
