Hi, love this new phone...I have a couple of questions:
-Will it be a dual sim card version?
-Does it take microSD card to expand memory and its maximum capacity?
-Wil it come available an unlocked version?

If so, I think you'd sell a boatload.Thank you, I hope you get some done like that soon, we've been waiting a long time.RDLongview
You're making some good points, and I had similar thoughts when I first read about it, but I think the fundamental issue here, is what you're decribing has been done, in fact many years ago. It doesn't innovate. While I think $1500 is high, most first of its kind devices are in this range.
I was an original Atrix 4G user, and all-in, I was near the same level of investment.
I don't think there is mass consumer appetite for two small screens. Media and gaming would be very uncomfortable.
As for no external screen, the orignal RAZR had one, I don't think they'd take it away. I'd imagine it could be used for call screening, text messages, and calendar updates, and save on hinge stress and screen bending for small/short tasks.
Clearly a lot of engineering went into it. The hinge and screen look great, better than some of the other foldable competitors I've looked at, so I think it may very well be worth the asking price. Verizon also always offers an extended return policy for the holidays as well, so I'd think if you don't end up liking it, you have a route to return it.
We'll know more when it launches.

I see the appeal for some of this phone - but please, for others, especially those who work in more hostile environments, make another Razr based on the Razr V3, only add 4G and give it KaiOS so it's "smart enough" but has great battery life, and price it nearer the low-to-mid range. I'm not saying this phone is wrong, but I'm saying there's also a large market out there for a different Razr that isn't being filled well by the existing flip / "feature" phones.
