Verizon to announce Motorola RAZR HD on Sept. 5th?


Today Motorola sent out a teaser to member of the media with the message, “Motorola. On Display. Join us for the day’s main event.” At the bottom of the image was a Verizon logo, so we are going to assume this is the coming out party for the rumored Motorola Droid RAZR HD.

We have been following the RAZR HD for months, and we have a pretty good idea of what the final spec sheet should look like. The RAZR HD is rumored to feature a 4.6 inch 1196 x 720 HD display, 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8 megapixel rear camera, and 2530 mAh battery. If the final design has those specs, that mean this device would be comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S III or HTC One X.

It is interesting to point out that Nokia and Microsoft are also holding a press event in New York on the same day. Their event is earlier in the day, but they are widely expected to unveil their new lineup of Windows Phone 8 devices. Motorola must be confident in their product, because there is a good chance it will be overshadowed by Nokia.

In a recent poll of Most Wanted Android Phones, Motorola ranked pretty low and came in behind Samsung and HTC. Only 4% of our readers said the RAZR HD was their most wanted phone.

What would it take for you to consider purchasing another Motorola Android phone?
