September 5 announcements: Nokia Lumia 920 and Motorola DROID RAZR HD
"Incidentally", both events will take place on the same day - September 5, with Motorola and Verizon claiming theirs will be "the day's main event", of which we aren't so sure. It goes without saying that the DROID RAZR HD is a hot phone, but the hype surrounding Nokia's upcoming Lumia range is somewhat bigger (probably because Nokia is constantly reminding us that something big is coming). It's also worth mentioning that Motorola might actually unveil one more handset - the DROID RAZR M 4G LTE, which is expected to be more of a mid-range smartphone with the same lovely Kevlar design elements.
If you, like us, are looking forward to these events, it might be a good idea to go through the content below, where you'll see some of our latest articles about the anticipated handsets. That way no one's going to be caught by surprise when the companies introduce their latest and greatest inventions on Wednesday. Of course, you can count on us to keep you informed about anything that happens before, during and after the keynotes. The Nokia and Microsoft event is scheduled to being at 9:30 EST on September 5, while the Motorola and Verizon one will be a few hours later, starting at 2PM EST. Stay tuned!

Well... How much fun is THAT for Mobile Geeks?
Pretty much these devices are rumored enough that more than a few surprises are unlikely. The only reason why Nokia may trump Moto is due to WP 8 getting it's first hands on treatment. People wlll want to see how much it has caught up to Android, and if it has anything to set it apart from Jelly Bean and iOS5.

Hkhmm dude, WP is better than Android from day 1, since the later began as a mere copy of iOS. WP just lacked some functionality, that I hope will be gained with WP8.

Well.....according to many ppl, it isnt better. Hence the low market share. WP is different, I will give it that. I just dont like the whole Live Tiles thing. And how its like a hybrid between iOS, Win Mo as far as some features.
When saying it was better.....you forgot to say IMO. You state is as fact, and every OS has its pro n cons.
Even tho IMO Android didnt start off as a mere copy....you cant deny where Android is today.

Please don't taint us all with the comments of one. As tempted as I often am, I try not to make such sweeping generalizations about Android fans.

Ok, ok.. I get it you are Windows Phone fanboy. I agree WP is better than Android in some aspects, but Android starting as a "mere copy" of iOS? Seriously, dude?
Reality distortion field is strong around this one.

Well Nokia match LG optimus G in terms of Specs, and take it one notch higher by squeezing ur Pureview camera in ur 'something Big' smartphone; then surely u will be again on the path to be smartphone 'king'............... :)

The next hottest to be announced phone will be the nexus.

This is great and all... But my most anticipated release is the next Nexus... Isn't Android's 5th birthday right around the corner?
