year is 2004. Netflix is making millions by mailing DVDs, every teenager is on MySpace, and the iPod Classic is the hottest truyền thông player money can buy. Sản phẩm điện thoại tech was simpler back then. We had no iPhones or app android phones. In fact, downloadable ringtones & wallpapers were pretty much the most advanced feature the average cell phone could offer.
So, how vì chưng you make an outstanding phone in 2004? With outstanding design, Motorola thought, và gave us what quickly became the hottest cell phone in the world – the Motorola RAZR V3.

& the Motorola RAZR V3 didn"t only look great. It truly felt like a premium product. Unlike its plastic contemporaries, it was made of metals like aluminum và magnesium, while the external display was protected by a layer of glass. A spring-loaded mechanism aided the lid as it opened & closed. The chin at the bottom made the device easier to lớn hold & operate. The speaker was loud and could play fancy MP3 ringtones. And the keypad, with its xanh electroluminescent glow và unique design, was practically a piece of art inspired by tech.
But the Motorola RAZR V3 wasn"t cheap. At launch, it was priced at $500 with a 2-year contract, meaning that you would mostly see one in the hands of the rich and famous. Và in TV ads và on the covers of magazines, of course. On the other hand, that initial exclusivity & aura of luxury surrounding the V3 made it even more desirable in the months that followed. Motorola had succeeded in striking an emotional chord with consumers. It had made a phone that people didn"t necessarily needed – but definitely wanted. As the RAZR V3"s price fell down, units were shipping by the millions.
Okay, by now you"re probably wondering what the Motorola RAZR V3 could actually vị beyond drawing the envious looks of bystanders. In reality, the phone wasn"t as advanced as some other phones at the time. On one hand, its 2.2-inch màu sắc screen with 176 by 220 pixels of resolution was pretty. It also offered conveniences like Bluetooth connectivity and support for Java applications. On the other hand, the battery was rather small, as you would expect, và even though the RAZR V3 could play đoạn phim files & MP3s, the 7MB of built-in, non-expandable memory severely limited the device"s multimedia capabilities. The camera offered 0.3MP of resolution at a time when 1MP cameras were already available on high-end competitors. Here"s what image unique was like:
On November 13, Motorola is expected to announce a foldable android phone of its own – a phone with thiết kế inspired by the iconic Motorola RAZR V3. On the surface, it seems that the company is preparing a rival to lớn the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but while that"s not entirely false, it"s not a statement painting a full picture of what"s going on.
You see, the foldable Motorola RAZR 2019 is going to be an android phone of a completely new size factor. While the Galaxy Fold unfolds lớn become a tablet-like device, the RAZR is going khổng lồ be a standard-sized phone that folds in half, thus fitting easily in any pocket. It will be the first phone of its kind – although we know that Samsung"s working on a similar phone already.

Will the Motorola RAZR 2019 be a smashing hit? At $1500 a piece, I doubt it. But I have a feeling that Motorola isn"t launching this phone khổng lồ make money. The brand is in a state where it desperately needs a way lớn remind people that it still exists – & that it can still make cool stuff. Perhaps xe máy is trying to replicate the V3"s success formula here – not a bad idea in a day when practically every new phone looks the same as the one next lớn it. But in 2019, it will take more than nostalgia for Motorola"s plan lớn work.
