Motorola RAZR says hi to FCC with AT&T radios on board; Motorola XOOM 2 also visits?

While the Motorola RAZR made it to the FCC with AT&T radios on board, customers of the nation's second largest carrier shouldn't get too excited as the frequencies are the same for Canadian operators who are expected to get the phone after Verizon...

Globally launched! :o great decision! Launch a steady line worldwide with similar dates around the globe and update like you said 6 weeks after ics source code is ready and you might win some customers

Razr. The whole phone is just kickass. The SGS2 is nice, but my loyalty to Motorola remains. :)

Ahh, yeah, my only MOTO phone was the KRZR which was way better than the original RAZR as it allowed an micro SD card. I would be willing to get the phone after some more research.

No no no no no...the Razr is the best phone ever made, that's all.

(make a little pray after each time you say "Razr").

Well...joke...it was a phone that was pretty unintuitive, pretty hard to use...but the phone you desperately wanted ! I have had one for a time...that was a time manufacturers thinked you wanted to be proud of your phone when you putted it out of your pocket. And that's why I wait to have the current razr in hand, to see if the sensation is the same... Even if I want to compare with the GNexus (but the design bore me a little in photos) and the Nokia WP phones.

Jesus, I want this phone so bad, and I would be so happy for this to come to at&t, but at the same time I would be so f*cking mad that I can't afford it. I would probably be a dumb *ss and wait another few months just to get this phone if that happened... Wait, if it does come to at&t, will it run on its new 4g LTE network? or just its hspa+?

So glad that this phone won't be a Verizon exclusive. I love seeing another elite phone hopefully sweeping across all the carriers. Especially since this is a "RAZR". Brings back the good ol' days.

That looks utterly bogus, why on earth would it be called Droid Razr for At&t unlocked? I smell crap mock up, Droid is trademarked for use by Verizon so this would be called the Razr but not Droid Razr. This is most likely going to canadian telecoms like Rogers, besides the original Droid, the X all showed up elsewhere in the world and on smaller networks. Might not see such a high profile phone going to a major competitor, seems like Motorola makes sure that any phone that gets branded Droid by Verizon is not released on a major US network.

George Lucas owns the 'DROID' name and Verizon has a deal in place to be the sole user of the name. It is probably a website typo...all that is important is that it has the AT&T band/s.

Still no confirmed date for RAZR availability in the U.S. Not even a confirmed date for pre-orders.... F*ck! October 27 is 3 days away and not a peep from VZW.... Double F*CK!

My guess is that is launch date for online pre-orders.

Settle down there, dude. That's 3 days they still have to announce a release date. Past that the phone is clearly cancelled and you'll have to live with a Droid X for the rest of your life.

I hope they unlock the bootloader for this AT&T version!
