Motorola DROID RAZR announcement: Live Coverage!

Motorola DROID RAZR announcement: Live Coverage!
Welcome to our Live Coverage of the joint Verizon-Motorola event! We're here in NYC to report anything that's happening with up to the minute updates for you. As you can imagine, we're pretty excited to be here, since we know that the most probable candidate for an unveiling today is no other handset but the Motorola DROID RAZR! And as you know, anything with "RAZR" in its name should not be taken lightly.

What we know so far about this device is that it may feature a sizable 4.3" qHD display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and LTE connectivity, in order to achieve those blazing-fast 4G speeds on Verizon's network. But this is all still subject to change, of course, as nothing is yet official. But it will be soon!

Stay tuned for our liveblog, which will begin shortly before the start of the event, scheduled for 12PM eastern time, 11AM central time, and 9AM pacific time.

All these "flashy" specs are underwhelming to me. So it has 1.2GHz dual-core processor...don't tell me the buzz word or that it's "2x faster." SHOW me how fast it is, tell me WHY I want it, and what it actually does for me. Their claims of battery life will be tested in the real world. I feel like this "unveiling" was similar to that of the iPhone 4S. It's underwhelming. Give me a reason to upgrade. Tell me the "Advanced" part of the screen is that it's brighter, has richer accurate colors, and better resolution than anything out there. Tell me something that allows me to easily complete this sentence, "The DROID RAZR will definitely be my next phone because..." Wow me. I appreciate knowing these specs/features as soon as they are presented from the manufacturer, but real-world use is just not the same as these controlled demos...which by they way they had technical difficulties. Nothing really new was introduced. We already have dual-cores, cloud syncing, LTE speeds, 8MP cameras, 1080p video, "thin" devices...maybe it's just that we don't have all that in a thin, Kevlar, long-battery-life device? Someone help, I'm fainting... Rant over.

Haven't heard 100% yes or no, but people have said the Pentile issue with the Droid Bionic is not on the DROID RAZR. We'll keep you posted when we find out more.

That have to be the best Motorola phone ever created! THINNER than the CHARGE/iPhone 4S better battery life.4.3" of goodness SUPER AMOLED PLUS qHD. The only thing I dislike is the price of the 32GB and 16Gb. They should of just kept it simply with 32GB @ 199.00 BUT STILL I LOVE THIS PHone just wish I was on Verizon just to get the DROID RAZR. And I will be piss at APPLE sues Motorola on this phone. It makes my Atrix looks like SHT.

The screen said Super AMOLED "Advanced" qHD...not "+." What does this "Advanced" mean anyway? Where did you see 32GB and 16GB flavors? Did you see the live version? I only saw $299 with no mention of flash-momory size.

I agree I am sitting here with an OG Droid, an upgrade and $300 dollars burning a hole in my pocket. Want a new phone sooo bad.

If its anything like the original RAZR, from what seems like years ago, stay away from it! The original RAZR was on eof the worst phones ever. At least on Verizon it was bad, I dont know about any of the other companies it sold on. We'll see though, Motorola has gotten better over the years. However the RAZR name has left a bad taste in my mouth.
