Telstra has begun selling the new Motorola Razr HD today through retail stores and online, with the smaller Razr M handset coming in November.

The Razr HD will be available for AU$5 on AU$60 Telstra personal plans, or for AU$720 RRP outright. When the Razr M hits stores, it will be AU$5 cheaper each month, and sold outright for AU$600. Both phones will be exclusive to Telstra until the end of the year.

"We're focusing on doing fewer things better, and we're making some big bets around the world," said Motorola Australia managing director Timo Brouwer. "The combination of Google's passion, in terms of software and in particular the mobile experience, combined with the way we design and make phones, makes for a really interesting partnership."

Brouwer spoke specifically about the way that Motorola is designing its user interfaces to be "much simpler to use", saying that the feedback Motorola has received from its customers was that many people find Android "fairly complex".

The Razr HD builds on the relaunch of the Razr branding last year, and maintains some of the key design decisions of its predecessor, including a Kevlar battery cover for added rigidity. It now has a larger 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 4G connectivity.

THe HD is not $5 but $15. For $50 on a byo plan you get the same calls as for the $65 including the Razr HD. some smoke and mirrors by Testra with their plan pricing.

"Both phones will be exclusive to Telstra until the end of the year."

What does this mean for 2013? Available to purchase outright from electronics retailers or will it be offered by other carriers. I don't care about telstra's better coverage, their plans are absolutely terrible.

Hi all, I've had the iPhones, galaxy s and am still looking for a phone that replaces my old palm pilot.... Although the never ending loop was fun. Samsungs screen was beautiful and I'm sure the new ones are great but is there an app that combines with your computer and keeps you synced and organised as good as the palm pilot system did? I'm a small business in the bush so I dont want blackberry!

Anyone want to weigh in on this little dilemma of mine?

$600 seems to be a pretty big discount by Telstra...
Should do well.

Wasn't there an antenna related delay to the HD?
