Motorola is sending out invites to a media event to be held in New York City on October 18th, and the contents of their message are giving us plenty of clues on what to expect. The invites touts “Faster. Thinner. Smarter. Stronger.” Aside from sounding like a lyric from a Daft Punk song, it also conjures up images of a super sleek Android smartphone. Add in the fact that the image file name mentions a “spyderlaunch” and we have a pretty good idea of what Motorola will be showing off. You will recall that the Spyder codename has been closely linked to the rumored Motorola Droid RAZR. It is also possible that Motorola will launch the device as the Droid HD, but a recent flare-up in RAZR related activity and an emphasis on a “thinner” device suggests the RAZR is indeed what we will see. We are also hearing multiple devices could make an appearance, including an update to Motorola’s XOOM tablet. We’ll have the scoop live from the event, but feel free to add your own speculation below.
Update: Motorola reuses the copy from their invite in the above teaser video, which again mentions the October 18th date. Notice the image of an actual razor appearing around the 14 second mark. Any doubt that we will see a new Motorola RAZR is all about gone at this point.
