Motorola Buying Up Domains Involving The DROID “HD” RAZR?

Motorola has reportedly began snatching up domain names through Corporation Service Company relating to a device supposedly called the DROID RAZR, better known around here as the DROID HD. Rumor has it that Motorola is planning on releasing the 4G enabled device sometime around the holidays and Moto’s recent acquisitions definitely fuel that fire.

Along the long list of recently purchased domains are razormoto.commotorazr.netmotorolarazr.net, and many many other variants. All the links go to empty pages of course and are just a sign that the DROID “HD” RAZR is very real. We just saw the device pass through the Nenamark with a hefty 1.2GHz processor, so soon we will see exactly just what is up Moto’s sleeves.

I’m sort of hoping this name scheme drops off completely and they just call it the “RAZR HD”. Sounds awesome, right?

    Why is Moto buying these domains? I thought Verizon owns the Droid trademark along with Lucas.

    Here’s some randomness… Does Amanda Knox know what an iPhone or what Android is?

    I like the idea of the Prime better bc it is “a little more” future proof (I obviously know anything will be outdated within a few months, weeks, whatever).  But the fact that the moto devices are coming with softkeys and no NFC chips is a little bit of a turn off for me.  I want to know that I’m going to get the best out of my phone for as long as I can, and I think the Nexus gives me the best chance.

  • I receive mail from Verizon with the OG Razr on the cover.

  • A lot of thanks for your own efforts on this web page. My aunt really loves carrying out internet research and it is easy to understand why.

    I was torn between this and the Nexus. 

    Then I saw the teaser today.

    I have the Bionic. I won’t be buying any new Motorola’s any time soon. I want the Prime !!

  • Anonymous

    I know these forums are full of prime lovin; for good reason, but I look forward to having to decide between the Prime and this phone. I just hope I can exercise restraint and wait to see what the RAZR will be while these and many other message boards lavish praise upon the Nexus device. No matter what I choose I can’t wait to eat some ice cream!

  • Using RAZR name is a bad idea. The phone was great for it’s time, but it was played out and left a bad aftertaste.

    Trying to relive past days of glory, moto? Yeah, it’s worth a shot.

  • Dongwenal

    I’m hoping this Droid HD will have that camera focus properly and long battery life apple makes motorola look silly holding out for spyder,Razr. Bionic nice phone but auto focus is off.

    • Lgreg64

      apple has battery life because it’s 3G. moto has the longest lasting LTE phone.

  • Dominick DeVito

    If fans are Prime fanboys then we will say how much better the Prime is than this phone or that phone.

    If we’re HTC fans we say how much better the Vigor will be then the Razr.

    If we’re Moto fans we probably already bought the Bionic.

    So answer me this – who is this phone targeted at?

      People who wished the Photon would have come to Verizon?

        Uh, it pretty much did. It’s called the Bionic.

  • Why would you name a new product, especially a Droid branded product with one of your most notoriously horrible past products? I talked to a friend last night that hasnt bought a Moto phone since the Razr/Krazr of past disaster phones. Moto -1

    • Anonymous

      Yea, wasn’t the RAZR the top selling device for a while till the iPhone came out? Sounds awful.

    • Anonymous

      The Krazr was a horrible phone, but the Razr was not.  In fact I had the Razr Maxx VE and it was a great phone.

      • Not sure what magic you had but me and my girl went trough like 6 Razrs and then she got the Krazr and went through 4 of them and they finally let her get a new phone

        • The Razr’s os was the slowest I have seen. 2 second after each button press to get a reaction.

    • Hotcake

      I still have my RAZR.  It still works.

  • you’d think that Moto would have a bunch of those on lockdown from the original Razr? Or is it just me?

  • Why would someone get the Droid RAZR when the Nexus Prime will already be out? Just doesn’t make sense to me.

    • Jarrett

      the Nexus Prime will be really expensive.. maybe some people just don’t feel like spending that much money on a phone, and would rather get something a bit cheaper.. Although, this is all based on the assumption that the Droid RAZR will be cheaper.

    • Anonymous

      Based on the info that’s come out the screen size will be smaller.  It’s the reason why I like this phone over Nexus.

  • Anonymous

    I’ve suddenly stopped caring for every other phone now that the Nexus Prime is coming ..

  • Mctypething

    Now come the “My OG Droid is on its last legs and I don’t know whether to wait for the Prime, Vigor, or this” posts.

    Or the, “Nothing matters but the Prime. Screw Moto”

      I’l take the latter statement with a hint of “My OG Droid is on its last leg…”

    If it’s stock, this will be my phone.

    • Dominick DeVito

      LOL – you said “if it’s stock”. Funny

        haha hey you never know…

  • Bunie

    The Razor was awesome in its day! Maybe it will live yet again!

  • This phone is what the Bionic should have been.

    • Mctypething

      Coming from Mr. Bionic himself.

      • Yes I know. I have a Bionic and am very happy with it. Just don’t get why after 9 months the Bionic wasn’t this phone instead, especially if they plan on releasing this within a few months. Just seems like a way to piss off people. 

        • Mctypething

          That’s what Moto does best!

    • EC8CH

      Who are you, and what have you done with Micheal Forte?

    • Dominick DeVito

      Agreed – Bionic 2 – LOL

  • Why is called HD when the screen isn’t HD?

    • Dominick DeVito

      High Density alloy body perhaps

    • Anonymous

      Are we sure that the RAZR and the HD are the same phone?  It seems odd for the phone to show up on Cellebrite as the Droid HD while Moto buys up all the RAZR domains.

      Perhaps the RAZR is the ultra-thin, kevlar-lined Spyder and the HD is the Maserati slider with an HD display?

  • Pass through the FCC? What? The link goes to the Nenamark score.

  • OG Droid

    They can call it whatever they want; but I’m still buying the prime.

    • EC8CH

      They should just call it the DROID RAZR.

      But you’re right, even if they did I’d still rather have the Galaxy Nexus.

      • im as excited about the new nexus as i was about the bionic at ces.. 

        im not one of those idiots who discount everything that moto does, but its hard to say no to a nexus device on verizon.

        For the last time, the name “Galaxy Nexus” will NOT be the name of the next Nexus phone.  It doesn’t fit the naming convention in any way.  The name “Nexus” will always come first.  Always.

        The only way a phone will be released with that name is if it is a skinned variant of the hardware used for the actual Nexus phone, not entirely dissimilar from how the HTC Desire (and, to a lesser extent, the Droid Incredible), were skinned versions of the Nexus One.  Even then, there are still issues with the naming convention, for the same reason that we will never see a phone called “Galaxy Droid” or “Droid Galaxy”.

        Galaxy Prime would make perfect sense, as would Droid Prime, for a skinned variant. That’s under the assumption that the phone will be called the Nexus Prime, and there is an overwhelming amount of evidence suggesting it will.  Please stop using the term “Galaxy Nexus”, it’s like nails down a chalkboard.

        • EC8CH

          You’re basing this “Naming Convention” on a total of TWO phones.  Which I may point out is the absolute minimum number to even attempt to label it as a “pattern”.

          I don’t know what it will be called, but I can see Samsung pressuring Google to include the “Galaxy” name in this device to tie it in with their very successful branding.

          So long as it ends up on VZW as a Nexus device I don’t care what they call it.

          • Anonymous

            Two is enough to get my point across. Or it should at any rate.

            Droid, Nexus, Galaxy, Evo, MyTouch, etc., are the brand equivalents of surnames in function. In a “marriage” of two distinct product lines, you wouldn’t expect one product to replace its first name with the surname of the other any more than you would in an actual marriage.  The name “Galaxy Nexus” would be the brand equivalent to something like “Anderson Smith” for a person.

          • EC8CH

            I’m not saying I know what the name is, but I think it’s highly likely that Samsung might demand the Galaxy name to be included (something similar might have happen with the Nexus “2” being called the “S” because of a demand from Samsung trying to tie it into their Galaxy “S” phones).  If that is the case, then it has to be a combination of “Galaxy” and “Nexus”…

            Nexus Galaxy or Galaxy Nexus… to me Galaxy Nexus flows better.

            I personally like the name Nexus Prime the best.

          • Sockid

            Droid Prime Nexus Galaxy by Samsung.

            That’s it.

          • EC8CH

            and the Sprint variant:

            Nexus Galaxy Epic 4g Touch with Sprinkles

          • Sockid

            I could see the release date getting pushed back for this very reason. Verizon with Droid, Samsung with Galaxy, and Google with Nexus are all going to want to have their names in the phone, and in a preferred order. Plus PRIME is just sweet.

            Could you imagine that being a holdup?? ha
