Motorola's bringing the Razr back. Remember the Razr? The flip phone that out-slimmed and out fashioned all those other bricks. They were so fly for a good four years in the aughts. All the cool kids had them until smartphones came along. They then became signs of late adopters, or even worse: technophobes with no fashion sense. But at one time really trendy tech users made these sliver phones popular and Motorola hopes it can tap some of that nostalgia to capture the fingers of the trendy again. Let's take a look at what exactly captured made the Razr so lovable.
The first Razr hit the market in July 2004. With its high price tag ($600!) and sleek facade, it was called a "fashion phone," at least by CNET's Kent German in a 2005 post. He refered to the first gen Razr as "supersleek," and "fashion-friendly." "Sure, it has a few quirks," German wrote, "but the Razr is--and always has been--all about its striking style." It was so thin and so sleek and had cool glow in the dark buttons--you could even add cute little charms. It also came in pretty colors like matte black and pink and Dolce and Gabbana even made one for the haute crowd. It really was cool looking.
