Last week, Motorola held a big event to unveil the “new Motorola,” a supposed relaunch of the company after its acquisition by Google. That event didn’t do much to show us what the new Motorola is really about, but we did get a look at the latest smartphones from the manufacturer, including the new Droid RAZR M for Verizon Wireless. Motorola and Verizon positioned the RAZR M as a mid-range smartphone, but it’s more of a spiritual successor to last year’s high-end Droid RAZR. The M comes equipped with improved hardware, a speedier processor, and a low starting price of just $99.99 on-contract.

It’s hard to see Motorola’s supposed new vision in the RAZR M, as it is really just a refined version of last year’s flagship smartphone from the company. But the original RAZR did have its merits, and if Motorola was able to address some of its faults (namely with the display and battery life) in the RAZR M, we could have a solid device on our hands — with an attractive price to boot. Let’s find out.
