Good Deal: Telstra puts Motorola’s RAZR M on sale for $199

Looking for a cheap Android handset? Telstra is selling the white version of Motorola‘s year-old RAZR M at its online store for just $199.

Will Motorola’s RAZR M & RAZR HD phones see a KitKat update in Australia?

This is a little surprising as both devices stopped receiving updates after Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rollout[Read More...]
