    Went to my local VZW store last night to pick up a replacement phone for the wife. The lady I have been dealing with over the last couple months gave me a Razr to try out (not one of those models that is strapped to the security device).

    All i can say is WOW!! Super thin and weighs next to nothing. The screen is amazing! I watched an HD trailer of the new Star Wars MMO on it, absolutely beautiful.

    If i wasnt happy with my D3 id be shelling out full retail to pick this thing up.

    The buzz around the Razr is crazy! Looks pretty sleek. I'd be a bit concerned about the physics of having such a large surface area and being that thin. I haven't read if it's clad with Gorilla glass. The ironic thing is the original Razr was marketed as the perfect pocket phone, which is exactly where mine lived- my right back pocket. I'm sure the new one would fit there too but what if I were to forget about it and sit in a park bench?? Better buy the insurance.

    That's awesome! Perhaps it could stop a bullet? I'll put a pocket in the middle of my back then.

    Maybe they used teflon as the nano coating? lol! Some reviewers have been stating that the Kevlar is a bit slippy. :p

    Teflon is only used on gangsters to make them unconvict-able! :p

    I got to play around with one too and agree that its amazing. I just got my Droid 3 a few days ago and the camera wouldn't work and the store said that I would have to wait till tomorrow to get a replacement Droid 3. I am now starting to consider waiting and just going with the Razr.
