Flickr Photo Appears to be Taken With a Motorola DROID HD?

A set of photos has popped up over at Flickr that appears to have been taken with an unannounced device called the Motorola DROID HD.  At first we blew it off as being nothing or possibly someone messing with EXIF tags, but as we dug through some additional photos from this user, we noticed that they also had images posted that were taken with a DROID3.  And to make things ever more interesting, all of the photos were geo-tagged from inside Motorola’s offices in Libertyville, IL, just off of Motorola Parkway.

So what the heck is the DROID HD?  We have absolutely no idea.  Could it be the new Bionic or something to come just after?  Are we talking massive HD screen or just a marketing tag?

One thing I can tell you, is that we’ll be digging for more…

    It may be the Droid Targa from earlier.
    Shame that it may run motoblur…
    Seriously, just release your sin and widgets like launcher pro or something…

    I and my pals were found to be taking note of the good tricks from your web page then quickly got a horrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for them. These boys became consequently very interested to learn them and already have definitely been having fun with these things. Appreciation for turning out to be indeed accommodating and for finding this kind of marvelous areas most people are really eager to learn about. My personal honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

    I intended to post you one little bit of observation to help say thank you over again about the lovely tips you’ve provided in this case. It was quite open-handed of you to grant extensively all some people could possibly have supplied for an e book in order to make some cash for themselves, precisely now that you might well have tried it if you ever considered necessary. Those tips also worked to be the fantastic way to recognize that some people have the same eagerness really like my personal own to realize many more pertaining to this condition. I think there are several more enjoyable moments up front for people who read through your blog.

    Anyone just ask? I just posted a comment on the pic asking what a Droid HD is. Who knows, maybe they’ll answer

  • tjhrulz

    Maybe a bionic rename (because of the bionics 4.5 in screen)

  • Im_Just_Saying

    Did you ever think they are just messing with morons who continually post idiotic rumors for the heck of it?

  • Anonymous

    Im getting tired already for this wondering, rumor b/s.. all carriers need to just have some deadline date twice a year summer/xmas for all of them to release phones which i know will never  happen.  My contract is up 9-3-2011  and im waiting on this bionic superphone , or droid 3, droid hd, targa device lol*.  I guess when these phones come out late July or August, Verizon’s Droid line-up will be introduced to another Droid line-up to ponder about all over again and again…

    This must be a Verizon phone of sorts.  So far no ther carier has the rights to use the Droid name. What ever it maybe it better get her soon and NOT suck!  I’m dying for a new phone.

    Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of awkward/incorrect comma use on Droid-Life. I’m not trying to be a grammar stickler, but it’s been bothering me. “One thing I can tell you, is that we’ll be digging for more…” has an unneeded comma in it (imagine the pause you’d take when speaking that sentence). “One thing I can tell you is that we’ll be digging for more…” has better fluency and makes more sense.

    • Ricky Babalu

      I, think, you, might, be, correct.

    • Granted

      No it doesn’t, I’d pause after I said the line he put the comma at. Maybe you’ve done too much speed and are incapable of separating your words.

      • Granted

        Plus, I’m pretty sure, one, can, pause at any interval, they please.

    I found the user: CBS Test.  The pictures suck, but definitely a lot of it is the photographer.


  • Hamholla

    At least its not the “DROID PENTILE” bc this x2 that asurion sent me is horrible to stare at

    • Anonymous

      You got the fastest device on VZW as a replacement for a phone you obviously didn’t know how to take care of in the first place, and you’re complaining?  

      p.s. Stop holding it against your eyeball, all those pixels come together to form neat stuff!

      • Hamholla

        Really? I got the x2 from asurion bc a drunk chick spilled beer all over my x. No need to attack my level of care. As for the screen, I can honestly say it isn’t all that bad, but its annoying to see the pixels when holding the phone even at reasonable level.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Perry/651895305 Ryan Perry

          Your level of care obviously sucks if a drunk chick managed to spill beer all over it…. just saying… if it was in your pocket and it got ruined with beer then that bit** must of been carrying a keg.

          • Hamholla

            It was on the table… but thanks everyone

    is there actually a picture or just two shots of the location it was taken at?

  • Anonymous

    Why did the other site block out the user?   Flickr is a sharing site and if they are public, then anyone can find and see them.  I want to see pictures to determine if the camera sucks or not.

  • T Hall

    Dig for lots more Kellex!  I need some Bionic news!  Please :)

  • shr1k3r

    its a 4.5 inch 720p screen with dual core omap or snapdragon processor, a class leading 5 mp camera that excels in low light situations and it is the first phone to come with android 4.0…

    i hope

  • Arrowcool

    Highly Disappointing

    Doesn’t matter if it’s pentile.

    It must be the Bionic. In this case, HD = Huge Delay. :-)

  • The Dave

    Could be Verizon’s ICS launch device….. Remember, the rumors are each carrier will get a FLAGSHIP, not necessarily a Nexus-branded device. HD runs in line with the rumors as well. 

    Could be the Bionic, but seems unlikely.

    Could be someone playing games with us?

    Just an observation… a few months ago I (and most others) were all over Samsung for how they handled the Froyo update for the Galaxy S. Now it seems they have their act together and are updating pretty quickly, and all is forgiven with a lot of us (including myself) wanting the GSII. 
    Could the same thing happen with MOTO? Unlocked bootloader, and non-delayed devices..and all is forgiven?

    just saying

    • Interstellarmind

      nah, for me moto’s blur ruins the device. and their camera (on the OG and DX, at least) suck (dark, not enough options to play with settings of the camera).

      htc, however, has taken the spot for me. sense is seemless and ENHANCES android, rather than hinder it. the camera takes bright photos and the settings (thanks to sense) are very customizable.

      • Interstellarmind

        though, i do have to admit, samsung camera’s have the MOST customizable settings for cameras… jsut not sure about the quality?

        (i’m talking about the droid charge, specifically)

  • Tferrell7368

    This is not the DROID your lookng for…

  • Guest

    Perhaps this unknown device (mentioned in the source of this article)?

  • Anonymous

    that’s hilarious. who uploads test images to flickr? oh wait… we are talking about motorola D:

  • Gabe

    To be honest, I’m surprised more phones don’t have the tag “HD” attached to them.

  • Anonymous

    Perhaps this was one of Moto’s reason to hold back on bionic for further enhancements???  Some other device will be doing the HD thing, so perhaps Bionic will have it.. even a different name.. look at how quick carriers change names and ditching custom themes on phones like the xperia plays timescape and then a month later it was stock for U.S. 

  • Anonymous

    Good thing I dont’ work at Moto, I’d be f$cking with people all day long with stuff like this if I could.  I would have a device called “Moto Droid Nexus Unlocked No Bloat 10-core”


    Its the all new Droid Delayed… just saying.

    • GotSka81

      I think you’re onto something…the “Droid Heavily Delayed…by Motorola”

    Motorola… who cares when it comes out. It’ll probably be delayed and have a shoddy version of Android.

    • digsoreos

      Motorola needs some good press and buzz after the GingerBlur problems so that’s probably why this was “leaked”.
