Motorola's new Razr gives me hope for the future of foldables
By JR Raphael
All right, stop me if you’ve heard this one before: After months of rumors and teasing, a snazzy new foldable phone is breaking cover — and promising to change the very way we think about mobile technology. Oh, but in reality, it’s expensive and almost certain to be laden with compromises, not least of all its subpar-looking and inherently fragile display.
It’s a familiar tale for anyone who follows tech news even a little, thanks to Samsung’s high-profile Galaxy Fold fiasco, and it’s starting all over again with the latest overhyped entry to the foldable phone fold: the new Motorola Razr, which brings the classic flip-phone form back with a 2019 twist and a $1,500 price tag. The phone goes on sale December 26th and is available for now only in the U.S. and only on Verizon — another throwback to a bygone era of mobile technology, though one that’s perhaps a tad less endearing.
