New photos of the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola XOOM 2 develop
With the Motorola DROID RAZR beginning to catch some attention of those Verizon customers who passed on the Motorola DROID BIONIC, some more pictures of the device have been obtained by Engadget. Also known as the Motorola Spyder and the DROID HD, the image of the handset shows what could be the final build of the handset. We can see the Verizon insignia on the device for the first time and we might be glaring at the Kevlar coated body that repels water on the device.

As we reported on Monday, a source characterized as a Verizon "insider" said that the carrier never really had much hope for the Motorola DROID BIONIC's staying power and instead, has high hopes for the DROID RAZR. The Engadget tipster told the site that the device in the picture has a 1.5GHz processor under the hood although the final released version is supposed to come to market with a 1.2GHz processor aboard.

The other device pictured is the Motorola XOOM 2 with an 8.2 inch screen. The picture reveals a better looking prototype than the one seen in other leaks, which could be a very good sign for those who have been waiting for this tablet.

i have to say as a gs2 and ip4 owner this does interest me and actually think it looks really nice

But how thin is it?

3. gotjesus unregistered

This thing looks hot! Making it tough for me with the Prime on Nov's heels. Although the thought of another locked bootloader device deters me....

I actually have a similar looking phone case for the Droid X. ITs supposed to be carbon fiber. It was the first accessory I bought for it. If the Droid spyder, HD, Razr, really does have a back carbon fiber thats a HUGE WIN.

Am I the only one who thinks the RAZR looks awkward and ugly? Especially compared to the smooth curves of the Nexus Prime. Thin is about the only good thing about that design.

It does look awkward, but it may be comfortable to hold. I will need to hold the phone in my hand to see if its comfortable or not and to give a better opinion about it.

Well, at least it's not just me. :)

It looks like carbon-fiber, not Kevlar though. It better be great phone now that Samsung Nexus Prime is around the corner!

Bionic goes back this Friday for sure. I'll have to hold the RAZR and Prime in my hands to make a decision. However I will say this. I've had to replace my driod twice because of water through the past 2yrs I've had it. So having a water resistant Kevlar chassis is really appealing to me.

Methinks Verizon will have a boatload of CPO Bionics on hand in a few weeks...

Hopefully you won't have to return the RAZR or Prime when the next new model arrives

the Spyder looks quite smexy although i don't much care for Motorola's new capacitive buttons. if this was an ICS device with on-screen function keys this thing would look even better.

Yes. I mean, why release a brand spankin new phone that'll look a generation behind upon the release of ICS? Plus, wouldn't being button-less make it look sleeker?

I can't wait to see how the display looks up close.

Assuming the RAZR is SAMOLED, it'll be about the same as the Nexus One. There isn't much difference between a 3.7" HVGA screen and 4.3" qHD.

and just like that the Motorola DROID BIONIC is forgotten. They need to come out with Motorola VTEC Android type phone.

Is that the Sprint Logo on the Xoom 2 icon there on the 3rd image?

And I just bought the damn Bionic 2 days ago. Hopefully my 14 day return policy still intact on launch day.

With the name "RAZR" it better be crazy thin

Supposedly as thin as the iPhone, which for an LTE device is crazy.

there's two XOOM 2s. one is the 8.2" Media Edition and the other is the 10.1" successor to the original XOOM.

i am soo mad like i just got the bionic on oct. 4 b/c i had to with that feature to smartphone deal to keep my unlimited data : X .......................... i rather have the droid razer or the nexus prime

Sorry to hear... I was sorely tempted by the $100 feature-to-smartphone deal, but I couldn't pull the trigger without seeing a release date on the Vigor or Prime. $100 isn't worth 20 months of phone envy. Verizon times their deals this way for a reason... like when they axed the $15 data plan just before the iPhone launch. They knew their best phones were coming in November.
