Live: Motorola and Verizon announcing new Android smartphone (possibly DROID RAZR HD)
If you ask Motorola and Verizon, this is the day's main event! If you don't... well, we're sure it'll still be pretty interesting, because the duo is expected to announce the Motorola DROID RAZR HD smartphone.

The DROID RAZR HD is expected to close the gap between the DROID RAZR series and the competition by featuring a large, 4.6" screen with 720x1280 resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset and, of course, LTE connectivity. The handset looks quite promising, and we hope that Motorola will again use premium materials for the design, making the DROID RAZR HD an easily-recognizable product.

Stay tuned for our liveblog of the event, which will begin at: 2PM ET | 1PM CT | 11AM PT | 8PM Central European Time!
