Motorola RAZR Stops a Bullet

by Mark R

Motorola RAZR phones are thin, compact, and full of features. Now Motorola can make another claim to their popular cell, it is bulletproof!

Or, at the very least, bullet resistant. Apparently, Motorola subscriber and Louisiana resident R.J. Richards was mowing his lawn and felt an odd sensation, and thought he was hit with a tiny rock. This always seems to happen to me when I mow my lawn. Mowers tend to blow pieces of debris and hit my legs all the time.

Richards then took out his RAZR phone, only to have it fall apart in his hands. He soon discovered that it had been hit by a .45 caliber bullet. Don’t worry, nobody tried to assassinate this man, but apparently there was a “hunting accident”. Dick Cheney must have been visiting Louisiana that day.

R.J. Richards attributes the cellular phone bullet-block to divine intervention. In all honesty, I’m not certain what else to attribute this to. If you look at the odds of the cellular phone, plus the hunting accident, it does seem a little against the odds.

This is assuming the story is true, of course. I heard a similar story about how an iPod blocked the path of a bullet a few years ago. Apparently it saved the life of a U.S. soldier based in Iraq.

So, what is the next mobile device that will block a bullet? Better yet, can we get mobile devices to be so tough that they could take a bullet? Go ahead and chime in on this one with a comment.

Don’t know if this is true or not, as it has not been in Louisiana papers in my area, but ironically, I can verify that Dick Cheney was in Northwest LA last week stumping for a Congressional candidate and the candidate loves to talk about his pro-gun stance & even has pics of him hunting in his campaign literature, lol!

Score one for Motorola. I thought cell phones stopping bullets was only for TV and movies!. I would be devastated if I had a Krave in my front pocket and it was broken. I’ve been a fan of the Krave ever since I started working with Motorola (
