Motorola announced a new developer version of the Motorola RAZR, which will be on its way to Europe in the coming months. What makes a developer version of the device so special? The developer version comes with an unlocked bootloader, which gives developers a little more free reign when it comes to developing their apps. There is no release date given, but it should be here soon. Motorola also said the device would be available in the United States in the coming months. Have you read our review of the Motorola RAZR yet? You can check out the press release in full after the break.

Press release: We have some news for the community of people interested in unlockable/relockable bootloaders. Today, we announced a step forward in Europe with the availability of an unlockable version of our most in-demand product: the Motorola RAZR™ Developer Edition. This solution allows us to continue meeting our carrier and regulatory obligations, but also meets the needs being expressed by our developer community.

In the coming months, we also plan to introduce an unlockable developer device in the United States through MOTODEV, Motorola’s global developer network. Stay tuned to Motorola’s Developer site for additional info.

EU-based consumers can pre-order the Motorola RAZR Developer Edition through the Motorola Shop. Post-purchase, the MOTODEV site will contain all support info for unlocking, relocking and locating build files, as well as access to additional developer resources. The Developer Edition will have all the same great features as the Motorola RAZR: an impossibly thin design, hyper-vibrant Super AMOLED Advanced display, KEVLAR(R) fiber and more.
