I was attending Les Misérables with my father when the email came though. I actually squealed with excitement. I was chosen to be a Verizon Wireless Ambassador and test out some of Verizon’s latest and greatest technology. For once, I would be the one in the house with the newest and coolest phone, yippie.
Let me introduce you to the coolest, sleakest phone this gal has ever owned. The Droid RAZR.
DROID. It’s even cool when it powers up and says it’s name. (A quick aside. After I set it up I left it in the room with my daughter to finish a system update and reboot. When I returned K exclaimed, “Mommy, your phone said TOYS!” DROID vs TOYS… Well, apparently they sound similar enough to a three year old. So even K thinks my phone is cool.)
When I signed up for the program, the big mystery was what phone we would receive. Since my father recently received a the Droid Razr, I had it in my head that would be the phone to test. Although my techy hubby suggested it might also be a Galaxy Nexus or even an iPhone (insert ohhhs and ahhs here). When we were given a clue about gorilla glass, I knew it was either the RAZR or RAZR MAXX. (Not familiar with gorilla glass, it is supposed to be scratch and shatter resistant – whooo hooo! I don’t know about you, but I am always dropping my phone.) So far, I am please as a peach with my RAZR!
I am no stranger to smart phones, I carried a couple generations of the Blackberry in it’s hay day, and I have even owned two Android phones. But this is the first Verizon phone I owned, at least in as long as I can remember, at some point my memory goes fuzzy on carriers past. And my other phones, they weren’t the tip-top coolest like this little piece of machinery.
So far, this is one happy mom. I haven’t played with things too much yet. But when I have it is fast, which is good since I have zero patience.
There will be much more about my Droid RAZR in coming weeks. I can’t wait to put it to day-to-day use, and tell you want this mom things of her new phone. If you have any questions you’ve always wanted to ask about the phone, let me know. I will figure it out or be happy to ask.
Disclosure – I have been provided a phone and service plan to use throughout the duration of this program, no other compensation was received. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Glad you like your phone. Android is a great, open source, operating systme that I think we can expect great things from as it moves from cellphones and tablets to other digital devices like cars, tvs and a multimedia players (like the roku, only android!)
