Motorola Droid RAZR M and RAZR HD are going through a blue phase, as Verizon just complemented the existing white and black versions with blue alternatives.
Verizon announced the availability of both of these handsets in blue hues versions, but they're not blue all over. The blue paint job is instead limited to just some trimming for a nice blue-ish look.
Verizon is now selling blue versions of both the mid-range DROID RAZR M and the flagship DROID RAZR HD, though the latter is more of a trim than a full paint job. Both versions were spotted by notable tipster @evleaks about a week ago. The blue RAZRs are available for purchase online now, and should be in Verizon retail stores starting today.
As previously mentioned, the phones are not all blue. The Droid RAZR M gets a sky blue color on the metal casing surrounding the screen and sides, while the power button is silver. The blue portion of the Droid Razr HD, meanwhile, is even smaller, with just a couple of blue millimeters on the band surrounding the display. The power button on this handset is blue as well, while the volume buttons get the silver treatment. The screen bezels and back plates of both handsets remain black, so the new blue scheme is more of an effect than an actual color option.
The Motorola Droid RAZR M is currently available for free with a two-year contract or renewal with Verizon Wireless, while the Droid RAZR HD costs $99.99. Without said contract the handsets normally cost $549 and $599, respectively. There's no mention at this point regarding a blue Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD, so that handset may escape the blue trim treatment.
Many users of the Motorola Droid RAZR M and Droid RAZR HD seem to prefer the minimal black version of their handset, but more options are usually welcome to accommodate more tastes and preferences. Would you buy one of these handsets in this new blue fashion or do they look horrid?
