Sources over at This Is My Next have stated this new device may be the Motorola Spyder or the Droid RAZR or possibly the previously rumored Droid HD. Whatever the name it has a first-of-its-kind 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 qHD Super AMOLED display. Also rumored to have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel, 1080p rear-facing camera and HD front-facing camera, as well as Moto’s Webtop environment. And is apparently outfitted in Gorilla Glass and Kevlar. What's more, the phone's got a couple of accessories on board, including a laptop dock called the Lapdock 100.

what exactly does it mean when it says that it is outfitted with a kevlar chassis?

It means the body of the phone around the screen is kevlar

Which means more impact resistant than the metal/plastic bodies of older phones.

Kevlar = bulletproof

My b&w home theater speaker cones are also kevlar. This phone sounds mighty nice to me.

Like_A_Boss57
09-25-2011, 09:32 PM
The thing with kevlar is it is extremely strong, so it won't crack like plastic phones could, but it won't cut down on reception like some of the metal-bodied phones do. It's a win-win. Sounds BA when you say your phone is made of kevlar, but it also makes it extremely durable while being lightweight.

I've been enjoying reading this thread. I must say that I was going to get the Bionic (especially being one of the grandfathered clowns that have unlimited data). But now I am going to hold out for this one...Until the next one after that catches my eyes. Lmao!

But the Kevlar may or may not be bullet resistant. Depends on it's construction and thickness, and anything it is made with (like gold can have an alloy).

The bunker gear, or turnout gear, depending on where in the Country you are (the gear we wear in a structure fire) is made of Kevlar. And it isn't even close to being bullet resistant. Puncture resistant? Yes. Bullet? No. Lol.

When I was in the Service, the Kevlar helmets were bullet resistant. You could still get greased in the head.

The cop's Kevlar vest technically isn't bullet proof, either.

Kevlar, if I understand it correctly, is used to help enhance functionality, like "bullet proof" vests. The main construction and material used absorbs the impact of the small projectile, or bullet, and the Kevlar helps make the vest even more versatile and stronger.

But cool as hell that the rumored ohone is rumored to have an element of Kevlar construction.

Lol. Guess I should have specified to begin with instead of assuming everyone would understand what I was referring to. Gotta admit, while we knew it wasn't puncture-proof, it surprised the heck out of us to see it happen. Usually, those drum heads would warp the drum (due to being able to withstand being tightened down so much but the wood of the shell couldn't handle the stress), so very strange to see it get punched through.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread on this awesome looking new phone.

I want one. I might have to be in line at the store that day.

Lmao! And force us pay for options we don't really want or need too, I imagine (cityid, blockbluster, slacker radio (I use Sirius), kindle, etc). With no way of opting out or getting rid of those options.

Oh, wait. That is verizon who does that. Moto is the one with no backbone. Who doesn't say, "No. You want to sell out phones? Quit making the cusromers (yours and ours) use your proprietary/"you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" apps. (As much as I hate apple, that is one thing I gotta give them props for. They told vzw to stick it - "If you want to sell our phones so bad, you will have to sell them without bloat" ).

It's like buying a new truck with ARB's, a snorkle, and swampers (big ol tires with tread) and being forced to get a dvd package. I have ARB's, a snorkle, and swampers. What good is that dvd package if I have a club-cab and I am bouncing along on rocks up in the mountains? Bite me. Lmao!
