Additional Leaked Shots Of The DROID RAZR and XOOM2 Emerge

The Motorola “Spyder” (aka DROID RAZR) and XOOM2 are no secret and have been leaked already, however the more pictures the merrier. The Xoom 2, in this case is the 8.2-inch version and is said to be in “better shape” than the earlier leaks.  The Spyder is also sporting what looks to be a rugged backside for enhanced grip.  Interestingly enough, Engadget’s source has said that this particular Spyder is clocked at 1.5GHz, although the final version will indeed be 1.2GHz.

Could we be seeing both of these at the Motorola and Verizon event set for October 18? Feel free to sound off in the comments, and check out the full gallery after the break.

    It was only matter of time. I was wondering when they were going to bring “RAZR” back. Such a huge hit back in the day. I wish them good luck.

    Motorola need to give it up already. They release half baked phones and tablets that simply don’t work. Nexus Prime is going to pwn this phone. I wonder if it is even going to sell 10,000 nationwide?

    Looks nice, but I’m more than satisfied with my Bionic. Glad I didn’t wait for the Prime, my week with a Droid Charge turned me off Samsung forever. I’ll take Moto’s build quality and vastly superior radios over an “open” device any day; it’s pretty hard to utilize a powerful phone when the data connection is reset every few minutes. 

  • Brandon Dellos

    Wow! Razr looks like crap… won’t be buying! Nexus rime all the way!!

    It is great to have a choice coming to VZW.  Razr, Prime, and Vigor (maybe) are all geared to high end users.  It would be nice to be able to make a side-by-side comparison when I want to make my purchase.

    You guys owe me. I was at CTIA today, having a discussion with one of the Moto marketing guys. He hadn’t seen the RAZR pics yet, so I pointed him to your site, which he also didn’t know about, but now wants to put into part of the training material.

    Is it just me, or does the Spyder look like a dummy unit?

  • Alexander Garcia

    For reasons I can not explain, I am much more drawn to this bad boy than the upcoming Nexus Prime! Must be the Moto Fanboyism in me I suppose. That kevlar backplate is absolutely awesome!

      We are on the same boat. I cant leave moto’s sound and build quality :) the radios on their devices are awesome.

      • Alexander Garcia

        Yes most definitely. Their high end devices are built like timeless quasi-classic tank-armored beasts. Proud and happy of a Droid X2 myself. And their radios… they sure as hell kno

        • Alexander Garcia

          … know how to tweak those Qualcomm baseband radio chipsets just right for full optimal data transmission performance.

            So far the Moto screens leave alot to be desired,maybe this will change that. And the camera’s as well are slow. I’m goin for the Vigor or Prime or Nexus whichever whatever the Sammy phone(s) will be. The Bionic debacle has soured me on Moto….

        • Anonymous

          I completely agree with you. Are you getting this one?

          • Alexander Garcia

            If I’m impressed with the its performance after giving it a test drive, then you bet I will. :-)

            same over here. I will give my droidx2 to my bro and stay with this one and the bionic :)

    This is what the Bionic should have looked like after a year of going back to the drawing board.

      I prefer the Bionic’s design.

  • Johnszumigata

    Looking for some help on this matter. I had been waiting for the Bionic since it was announced at CES. I weathered the delays and then finally 8 days after the release I went to a Verizon Company Store and bought the Bionic. It had everything I wanted: Big Screan, Dual core and LTE. Also I wanted to have Motorola’s flagship handset. I dont like Samsung or LG devices and HTC just has had way too many battery life issues. So I made my decision after a considerable amount of research I was going to forego the Vigor, revoltion2 (?) and tbe Prime. I was going to treat myself after 3 years of owning a BB Curve (which never gave me a problem and its battery would last for days if it needed to) and buy a Bionic. I bought it on September 16th. Yesterday my heart nearly stopped when I read that the Spyder/Razr was going to be announced October 18th. The Bionic has been great for me and I love how fast it is especially when compared to the old Edge Blacberry. The onlu issues I have with the thing is the display isn’t as nice as some of the other phones. The heft of the phone is also a bit much with the extended battery. It seems as if both of these issues are fixed with the Razr/Spyder as well as being FASTER!!!! Considering that I am a 15 year customer of Verizon I decided to give them a call and see if there was anything they could do for me. After over an hour on the pbone pleading my case the final answer was that I was 10 days past my “worry free” return period that there was nothing that could be done especially considering that there have been no official releases made regarding the introduction of the new phone. Am I wrong to be upset that my “master of all machines” will be obsolete 45 days after it was released and 32 days after I bought it? I just think that in April when Verizon shrunk their return period from a month to 14 days they new this exact situation was on the horizon. If anyone has some constructive advice as to who to write to or any other words of wisdom it would be appreciated.

      Sorry about your situation. Technology does move fast nowadays. Try this. Sell your Bionic on eBay and then buy the RAZR outright (no contract price). If you can sell the Bionic for about $400+, then you’ll only have to shell out another $100 for the RAZR. Depends on how bad you want the phone, but this is the only solution I can think of. 

      • Johnszumigata

        Thanks for the advice. Do people really buy used phones on ebay for $400?

        • GiantKN

          I sold mine for $400 as Buy It Now in about 15 minutes.  If you’re going to sell it, do it now while it’s worth this much.

      not sure where you got the idea that this phone will somehow fix your issue with bionic display and size. motorola has been introducing only pentile displays, which i’m pretty sure this phone will also sport a variation to it. this phone will be thin but i also believe it will not have an interchangeable battery, and until it is out, there is no guarantee the battery life would be better.

    • http://twitter.com/MrUniq78 Christopher

      Stick with what you have. Kruck55 has a point but think about it..is shelling out an extra 100 to 200 on top of what you just spent for a marginal upgrade worth it. By Dec or Jan you will be hearing rumors about the next “flagship” Moto device and you will have even more regret. In the future, consider buying phones ‘strictly’ off contract, but in the meanwhile…best advice to you is to be content with your purchase. It’s an arms race in the Android world…there never will be a single ‘best device’ for years to come..those days are gone.

      The razor will have a better display and a better build quality, but other than they are close in specs. You can add another line and have two devices like i do :). You can also sell your bionic and get this one if the display bothers you so much.

       VZW changed their policy from a 30-day return to a 14-day return.  The simple fact of the matter is that you did not make an informed decision.  There was no doubt in the air at all that this was a hunk of crap coming out.  VZW and Moto had to just decide on a date to dump it to get some money back. 

      #1 You should have taken the Bionic and put it next to older phones.  You could easily tell how crappy the display was.  You didn’t even need to do a side-by-side comparison.

      #2 Before the Bionic was released, VZW announced it passed on the SGS2 (a much better phone) for something coming that was better.  This alone should have told you to hold out. 

      #3 Buying on or near launch day is crazy.  It is the highest price you would pay for it.  In the next week or two, it will sell for maybe $100. 

      #4 “Master of all machines” was a marketing scheme to get uneducated consumers to purchase it.  At the time, it was.  However, it no longer is.

      You have options.  Try selling it on the open market and buy a real phone at retail pricing.  You can even look at the cost of canceling your contract, selling the phone, and then opening a new account.  Any way you slice it, you will lose money.

      Next time, do a little more research and not buy into the fanboyism.

      Unfortunately, you can’t return it.  However, if you say you lost the phone (walk into a store and say you lost it and don’t have a warranty), they can most likely give you a new 2-year contract on another phone.  

      • Anonymous

        most likely they wont do that and would make you buy one full retail, which if you lost it why would you wait a few more weeks to get a phone???

    • Anonymous

      Stick with the Bionic.  There is always going to be something better coming out.  People have pretty much forgot about the Vigor because of the Prime, but guess what, quad cores are right around the corner and the Prime will be stated to be obsolete.  Plus, they are just announcing the phone which doesn’t mean they are releasing it any time soon.  We are getting to the point of diminishing returns with these phones.  How much power do you really need??  Dual core with LTE is what this phone is about which for the average user is more then is needed.  The uber-nerds want the best and brightest but they will be waiting till eternity to find the perfect phone.  There is no such thing because if there was, then no one would sell any more phones ever.  As for the screen, if you don’t like it then that would be the reason to try and get a new one.  Personally, I don’t have a problem with it.  It is better then the X2′s screen and from a color reproduction, close to the beloved OG Droid screen.  It is not over saturated like the AMOLED ones but some people like it.  Basically, you will always be chasing specs, don’t base decisions like this solely on this since……it is just a phone to make calls and that should be the primary focus of buyers.

      do some research before you buy a phone next time

      This Razr is only a moderate improvement, mostly in the screen.  The Bionic is nowhere close to being obsolete.  The only reason you should get the Razr is if you feel the screen is worth it, otherwise you can barely call it an upgrade.

  • Bionic

    Maybe its me but I find it hilarious that so many people are so picky about how phones LOOK.  Its a device that goes in your pocket or in a case/pouch for crying out loud.  I totally understand if a phone is REALLY REALLY ugly.  But I dont think recent motorola phones qualify as that.

    • Anonymous

      cell phone has evolved to a necessity these days, much like a wallet. i know people who won’t leave their house without their phone. when you are paying so much for an item that you spend so much time with, whats wrong with wanting a nice design. i like the design of motorola phones, but this spyder is something else, its definitely ugly lol

    • Anonymous

      They are good looking devices all of them. The look of the photon, droid x and atrix are the best looking ones among moto devices.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MRXKXFO5F7NVWFJHNZFO7NEHVY Big R

       Tell that to a crApple owner.  If it was shaped, looked, and smelled like a turd, they would still argue that it was the best design and phone ever.  So, yes.  People do care about what a phone looks like.  Personally, I don’t.  I just want the phone to be able to handle what I throw at it and have the latest technology.  Unfortunately, crApple does not provide that.

    I never thought I would see the day that Nexus (prime) fanboys would be even more annoying the iPhone fans. Seriously, holy shit shut up with your constant high expectations. “OMIGOSH IT HAS BUTTONS ITS GAY!!!”. I’m a bit bummed it has Moto’s proprietary UI, but seriously it’s not as bad you people make it out to be. Have you ever even tried it rather than make up your own assumptions just by looking at screenshots and declaring it as shit? It’s just like the Droid Bionic all over again, people are going to continue to hate without even using the device. Some part of me actually hopes the Nexus Prime becomes a bigger disappointment than the iPhone 4S, but then you people would never stop your whining.

    • Anonymous

      i prefer having buttons actually. but still i will never buy another motorola phone, no matter how good the specs are (im not even impressed with these specs actually)

        That’s because you’re a dullard.

    • shdowman

      I actually don’t hate on the device.

      I think most people who are cautious, is because Moto has a track record of being “subpar” in some areas of their phones (camera, updates, software). All anyone has to go on right now are these leaked images.

      For myself, I think it is hideous design-wise. That’s just me though. I get that they are trying something different and attempting to differentiate their phones from other flat black slabs on the market, I just think they could do better.

      As for the Galaxy Nexus, let people be excited. Nothing wrong with that and who are you to take it from them. In the same sense, I wouldn’t take from you, your right to be excited over this phone. I hope it is awesome and you enjoy it for many months.

    Whatever happened to the Vigor? I really wanted that phone. I like Sense 3.0 and it has 2 more home screens than this RAZR with Blur. Guess we’ll never see it, with all of HTC troubles right now. I’m not impressed with this phone, just seems like a faster Bionic. 

    • Bionic

      by your logic the vigor is just a faster thunderbolt

      • Anonymous

        Not really. Dual core vs single core, Sense 3.5 vs Sense 2.1, 720p v 800×480 screen, 2MP front vs VGA. Much more than RAZR’s 200 Mhz speed upgrade and a more durable case. 

  • Chad

    Doesn’t matter how strong the processor is, Blur will slow it to a crawl. No thanks, Galaxy Nexus for me!!

    • Bionic

      ive tested my Bionic and blur has not slowed it.  Im getting exactly 1.0GHZ.  I froze all the bloat apps.

        These sheeps are stupid. They do not understand that the bionic has 1 gm of ddr2 ram. Blur used to slow down the droid x while it was on froyo.

          blur slows down all phones even your “perfect” bionic. its the main reason why i have grown to hate moto phones.

            moto devices with 516 of ram not the bionic’s ram.

    An uglier Bionic that’s 200MHz faster and running Gingerbread, or a Galaxy Nexus with stock ICS? Touch choice.

    Seriously how long until the Bionic owners start picketing outside of Motorola’s offices?  Verizon should offer a pity upgrade because they totally got screwed in this situation.  The Bionic is a great phone don’t get me wrong but to release a better phone so soon?  Just plain wrong.
