Nostalgia seems to be a lucrative niche in technology gadgets ... The legendary 2004 Motorola Razr will be making a comeback as a smart phone, for the price of ... hang tight ... USD 1,500. Motorola Mobility, which Lenovo bought out from Google in 2014, is determined to leverage the brand’s legacy. According to the Wall Street Journal, this phone could be released next month and would be exclusive to Verizon. We have already seen resurrections of old designs as with the Nokia 3310, but never in a price range that would place the new Razr in direct competition with the high end of the market.
