Moto Razr is flipping open the nostalgia box to tease its new phone, dusting off some video from its 2004 Razr launch (below). Now owned by Lenovo, the Moto brand still means mobile first to millions — with the iPhone almost occupying a different category. People are showing Razr the retro love, but will they change their ways just for nostalgia’s sake? Vinyl made a comeback, but phone tech must go forward. Still there’s excitement, as some ask: Won’t it be awesome if Motorola launches a Moto Razr 2016 model?
Does the flip need to be re-invented, reintroduced? Might be the right time — as there’s a big battle raging to own the real estate on every phone’s lockscreen, with apps abounding. Is the simultaneous push into more space for lockscreens — dual screens — behind a potential relaunch of a Razr flip phone? What about a flip phone you didn’t even have to flip open to access much of your non-private critical info from? A virtual ticker of data on the outside, private stuff on the inside? Moto’s new phone announcement is expected June 9.
