Well if they want to include touch buttons then screen has to be at least 4.6" because then it would actually be about 4.3-4.4" of actual viewable area

yeah, really everywhere between 4.6" & 4.8" i'm betting it's the same 4.65" HDSA Display the Nexus has.

Not that the s3 is a bad phone its a great phone but I prefer htc but being stuck on vzw and not knowing what's gonna happen to my unlimited so i figure I can get this lock in my data and see if I like the phone or not depending on the data and stuff I my sell the gs3 on eBay and buy a htc later this year full price or if data stays the same I got another upgrade around Oct and my brother in law will enjoy his new gs3 :)

Verizon and Sprint are supposed to get a large HTC phone similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note, if you like HTC, you may want to wait for that.

Get the S3 with an upgrade now, do a warranty replacement, then sell the warranty replacement one as a return or new, and use that to buy the razr maxx on eBay full retail...might only need to pay a little more out of pocket.

Give that s**t to me on AT&T and I'll find a way to afford it, I'm sure. :)

Motorola doesn't care bout us those on AT&T. They give all the nice THIN RAZR phones on Verizon. That is why I'm never buying another Motorola again

That will be changing this year as Moto is supposed to be making A LOT less phones and will focus on a few good ones which should see variants on Sprint & AT&T.

Not Motorola doesn't care about you it is AT&T doesn't care about you.

'... and should address the complaints that the RAZR (and to a lesser degree the RAZR MAXX) received indicating that the sharp-edged devices where somewhat uncomfortable to hold.'

Baloney....I own the DROID RAZR with a case and it not uncomfortable to hold.

Not everyone puts cases on their phones, and some people are just pussies...

It was a common complaint by reviewers - that doesn't mean everyone will agree. In a case you've pretty much mitigated the problem all ready.

I'm still wondering why other phone makers are not going in the same direction as Motorola with their amazingly large battery.

Because the RAZR MAXX didn't sell gangbusters. The top selling phones all had average sized batteries.

It didn't sell like gangbusters because for the longest time it was at that stupid 300 dollar price.

also the phone is as big as a 4.7 inch screen with only 4.3.

Mainstream consumers still think they need the thinest device. But until we get our battery technology out of the 20th century we're not going to last long with these anorexic phones. It's nice to have something thing but not at the expense of comfort and certainly not at the expense of daily use.

That is all changing with newer processors in phones such as the HTC One X / HTC EVO 4G LTE / Samsung Galaxy S III using the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (28nm) SoC, which Motorola will likely use in their next gen phones. These phones get MUCH better battery life and are still very thin. I personally don't care about having THE thinnest phone around but it is nice when you can get great battery life and a high quality thin phone like the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

Its not about the size of the battery, but the technology behind it. I think its thinner then other 3300mah batteries from 3rd parties, while still giving the 3300mah power to last longer. Motorola really innovates :)

Motorola designs are really good.
I left nokia for Motorola and never looked back.
With Droid Razr, no regrets.
And this one will have it's effect on the market.

Just hope that it is a S-AMOLED or S-LDC kind of display. My question is, are they going to release a Droid Razr HD & a Droid Razr Maxx HD or is it just going to be a Droid Razr HD?

No point in doing the Maxx thing again since it already has the Maxx's Battery in it. Also no sense in upping the mHa's since 3300 is more than the average and even heavy users need.

Darn... the Moto haters are gunna have to come up with something else to whine about.

No we still got the crappy UI and unlock screen to complain about :). Other than that everything is pretty good!

you have no idea what you're talking about. xD
the only other thing is the bootloader. Moto needs to get in and slam some carrier heads around.

Oh aye. The new Moto UI is great and widely appreciated by many. Yes an Unlocked phone would be the icing on the cake, but the UI that has been showed off is the closest thing to stock that you are going to get with out buying a Nexus.

And about the screen... We have yet to even see specs past size. If they are indeed going to try and compete with the HTC One x and the SGS3 they had better pull out all stops to make this screen something to talk about. I mean the One X's screen is gorgeous by many standards and I'm not saying that it has to be on par with that. But they certainly have to try to get their displays up towards the SGSIII standards if they do intend in having a chance in competing.
I think that is what we are going to see from Moto this go around. But even that is hope. Really, we'll have to wait and see but I think this phone will be something great.

I think it will be:

Motorola Droid Razr HD = For Verizon

Motorola Razr HD = GSM version

And they both will be with 3300mAh battery.
