This may not be the announcement that many of us were waiting for, but Motorola and Verizon have decided to step into the breach with an event of their own.
Next Tuesday in New York they will be taking the wraps off some new hardware which as you can see from the invite will be “Faster. Thinner. Smarter. Stronger.” (Great, now I’ve got Kanye and Daft Punk stuck in my head.)
Fortunately for us, Motorola and Verizon apparently didn’t feel like being too tricky and left the name of the invite as “spyderlaunchinvite.jpg” which as you will no doubt remember was yet another code name for the Droid RAZR (Droid HD).
Specs for this phone leaked late last month and if accurate will certainly position it as the top dog on Verizon, for now anyway:
Droid RAZR (Droid HD)
4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD Super AMOLED display
Unspecified dual-core 1.2 GHz processor
8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording and image stabilization
“HD” front-facing camera
1 GB of RAM
Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar casing with a splash-guard coating
Webtop support and Lapdock accessories
We didn’t get the thickness, but if you take a look at the images from our post in August which had the Droid RAZR side-by-side with the Bionic you will see that it is also much more compact. The Droid RAZR is certainly a bit of a puzzling addition to the lineup so soon after the launch of the Droid Bionic, but we all know that the Bionic was launched several months after intended.
If you enjoy a bit of flashy advertising that doesn’t show you anything about the product then Motorola made the teaser below especially for you.
Any Motorola fans out there excited for this new addition to the Droid family and not particularly worried about what Samsung and Google have in store?
