Motorola Droid RAZR gets a launch day special price of $111.11 on Amazon Wireless

Amazon Wireless is kicking off the launch of the newest and thinnest member of the Droid family with a tip of the hat to today’s unique date by offering the Droid RAZR for $111.11. Amazon is backordered at the moment, but orders placed today will still qualify for the special price. As of this posting they are still saying they will ship by the end of next week.

As with most of the Amazon Wireless deals, this pricing only applies to brand new 2-year contracts.┬áIf you’re looking to upgrade an existing contract, they are offering a slightly discounted price of $249.

The Droid RAZR is just the first of Verizon’s power trio of Android devices, so make sure you peruse what the Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound have to offer before making any snap decisions. You can take a look at the review roundup we assembled earlier this week to get a sense of the early impressions of the Droid RAZR from around the web.

Are any of you planning to either take advantage of this deal or pick up a Droid RAZR direct from Verizon today?

    I had my razr since yesterday. I even had to go to the Verizon’s store to pick up a new car charger. It was kinda funny as all the reps didn’t understand how I had one already and it kind of had people asking for one cause they saw me with it lol. It’s a nice phone. Colors look really good. Video looks great. Switches fast with no lag between screens and apps.
    I will say it’s bigger then I thought, as I have the x and it’s longer and wider, though it fits nice in your hand. I will kep it for a bit and return it if I like the nexus better, though I am a fan of motorola.
    The stores are sticking to the 11-11 time frame stating they can’t even process a sale in the computers till then.

    Is the camera really as terrible as Phandroid’s review made it look? That’s a no-sale right there for me even if I was interested in the thing.

      I haven’t had a chance to use it yet myself, but you can check out Anthony’s first impressions post and the full review will be available early next week.

      If the camera is one of your primary concerns I would definitely be more inclined to steer you to Samsung or HTC though.

    If I could renew my contract for this price I’d go for it. Not worth the hassle of doing a new contract and changing phone numbers and losing my unlimited data.

      Definitely not worth losing unlimited data. I’m not looking forward to biting off full retail on the Galaxy Nexus, but that unlimited data is like gold, I go over 5GB every single month.
