Motorola DROID RAZR display up at some Verizon locations

Motorola DROID RAZR display up at some Verizon locations
You know that the Motorola DROID RAZR is coming with the constant airplay that the new television commercial is getting (with an ad that once again shows none of the phone's features except that it apparently can slice a light pole in two) and the new display that is up at many Verizon stores. The display shows a metallic arm similar to the one that you get to wield in the "DROID extraction" game, holding the RAZR sideways, showing off how thin this phone really is. A sign reminds you that the actual launch is coming 11:11am on 11/11. By now, you should have come to the realization that the 11's represent two thin  Motorola DROID RAZR units standing next to each other. Luckily for Big Red, November is the 11th month of the year because 10 or 12 wouldn't quite work.

In addition to the display, it seems that some Verizon locations might even have a demo unit for the manager and his favorite reps to play with in the back of the store the customers to check out while at the store. We are not referring to those dummy units that have a printed label to represent the screen, but an honest-to-goodness working model that lets you load up PhoneArena so that you can check the browser.

If you decide to blow off work on Monday morning (Sorry Mr. Smith, it's the flu. I'll take care of the Henderson account tomorrow) or take a detour and forget to do the shopping (nothing wrong with 3 month old turkey slices, hon. The dogs? Let them fend for themselves) so that you can check out the new Verizon flagship for yourself, let us know what you think about the Motorola DROID RAZR in the comment box below. For those that can't slip away to visit a Verizon location, we're just days away from the 11:11 11/11 launch. And in case you've forgotten, the phone is $299.99 with a signed 2-year contract.

First. Looks beastly, unfortunately though it's on Verizon and they have a horrible track record with Android phones. Wouldn't mind having this phone even though it's made by Motorola.

I'm hoping it is similar to the OG Droid, which was a great phone.

First andro phone which I would like to have (and maybe first droid/milestone...I could live with crappy camera).
RAZR is pure amazing!

I like this Razr. The best droid i have ever seen. The only issue is a new one will be out next month and this one will be reduced to the bargain bin. So if you want one just wait a couple weeks you could save few bucks.

I don't see why this is a down side, as long as it gets updates and bug fixes the only thing you might want is a "HD" screen supposedly this phone up for the 2 year minimum guarantied updates you might get mad that you didn't got it cheaper and being CDMA is a down when reselling but a new android phone wont make this any less nice

I hear you. But i have a serious problem. When i get into a product i always want the NEWEST product from that line.

Its a personal thing. My boy is an androider and he is like me in this and he gets everyone that comes out. Im not with the months turn overs though.

I think the android phone for you might be Nexus Branded, you wont see a Nexus till next year and it will be on Verizon(and the others) about the RAZR there will be another Motorola phone soon enough with the droid branding on it by Jan (Or at least rumors and leaks) Motorola sometimes trows unnecessary stuff

I think this is much more a Bionic problem than an Android problem. At least on VZW it took a solid 8 months to replace the Thunderbolt, 6 months to replace the Charge and we don't even have a release date for the Revolution's successor. The manufacturers keep trying to outdo one another for top phone bragging rights, but the way I see it the buyer wins in the end. Just do your homework, find out what's coming in next couple months and you won't get burned.

I wonder if pre-order shipments will start to leak out before 11/10? That would be so cool to get a RAZR before 11/11.

There's no reason they couldn't... it says "ships *BY* 11/10". I think they should ship first come, first served right now.

Our Inventory just got a shipment of quite a few of these amazing beasts...not allowed to sell them until the 11/11 date though.
