Motorola Launches New Teaser Site for the DROID RAZR Event

Motorola has launched a new online campaign to help tease what they have planned for tomorrow’s DROID RAZR event. Similar to what they did with the DROID Bionic’s launch, they have invited 16 sites to participate in the shenanigans that involve a box of swag along with a code to be entered at a “reveal” site. Once that code is entered, a new piece of the phone (DROID RAZR) will be shown, adding to the fun.

As you can see above, the folks at Mobile Burn have already unlocked one piece which clearly shows off that kevlar back from last week along with Moto’s trademarked hump.

Visit the Reveal site here and watch the rest of the puzzle show itself.

    Where’s the love for Kellex with these things?  Droid-Life is the first mobile blog I hit up in the morning.

  • BKH_01

    Neither spec sheet for the Droid RAZR nor the Galaxy Nexus lists an external memory capacity. I’ve seen rumors that the Galaxy Nexus definitely will NOT have an SD card slot. Does anyone kow if there’s any truth to this? Can anyone confirm jwhether or not the Droid RAZR will have an SD card slot? I realize all will be revealed tomorrow at the launch, just curious if anyone has that information today and if it really matters much considering the 32GB internal memory?

    Is this device going to run ICS?

  • Dominick DeVito

    Faster? Thinner? Stronger?

    Sounds like, I dunno, words to describe the Bionic (man).

    …just saying…

  • Alexander Garcia

    Kevlar back plate!? And still RAZR thin!? Sign me up!!!

  • Bear0013

    For some reason im just not excited about moto right now! ..maybe I gotta case of the Mondays lol…or just disappointed! In them lately

  • Anonymous

    People are interested in the Galaxy Nexus right now…  Moto choosing to release this now is a case of bad timing, advertising/promotion wise.  If this phone is released with anything other than ICS, then really, who cares…

    • Lgreg64

      Moto set the date 1st

    • Anonymous

      Samsung and Google changed their original date…their date was supposed to be on the 11th…

      • Dominick DeVito

        Yes, but what difference does it make? If the MazrSpyderHD releases with Gingerbread? Will YOU want it? Will I want it?

        Nope.

    Never owned a motorola before.. but does locked bootloader mean you cannot root and install custom roms??

    • EC8CH

      no, but the Kernel remains out of reach.

    • Anonymous

      No, it means that you have to use the stock kernel. It can be ok, but not great.

    • Anonymous

      while nothing is a given, it should be possible to root it and probably even load custom roms if they can get clockwork recovery on it.  What they can’t do is load a custom kernel.  Not sure about any other limitations.

    Can we get some nexus news to hold is over til tomorrow ;)

    Sorry Moto - 

    You lost a loyal customer with your bungling of the Xoom.  Then the fact that I’ve had to had my Droid X replaced 3 times now on warranty claims has made me lose confidence in your ability to produce a quality product.

  • Jarred Sutherland

    As much as I love new hardware .. these releases are getting to be a bit crazy. Bionic released in September, here we are a little over a month later and yet another release impending from the SAME company. 

    Ugh, I am riding the fence on Android right now. I hope ICS has something crazy that makes me go “I NEED IT”.

    If this thing had an HD display, and was running stock ICS, I would totally take it or at least have a hard time choosing between this an the Nexus.  But Blur + qHD = no sale!

    I’m wondering if the fact that this isn’t going through droidlanding means it won’t be Droid-branded?

    • Anonymous

      It does have a pretty sweet looking “droid eye” boot animation, though.

  • TheRobotCow

    I wonder if people would change their minds if this phone is running ics
    its possible right?

    • Anonymous

      Doubtful, more like it.

      • Anonymous

        While it won’t be running it out of the box, one would assume that it’d be an OTA upgrade at some point, though it might be next summer before you see it.

    Did droid life get to participate this time?

  • http://www.facebook.com/cush2push Geoff Wightman

    hopefully by giving it the “razr” name they cut out the moto crap ie locked bootloader and blur  

    • http://www.flayme.com/troll/ bananatroll

      that would be awesome… I would sell my bionic for this if that was the case.

  • OG Droid

    Sorry Kellex; you have me already dead set on the Nexus. Unless something is godawful on it there isn’t enough hype to get me to think about this phone.

      Have you heard about the 6 hour battery life? Not enough to get through a standard work/school day

      • Anonymous

        You need to go and examine that tweet by black man again. He specifically mentioned that he managed to drain the battery in 6 hours, but that he downloads over 4 GB of data for tests on a daily basis. Comparatively, he drained the Bionic through the same process in 3 hours. Plus, that tweet was loaded with sarcasm.

        • OG Droid

          Good call; I saw that too. There’s a google employee that got some hands on time and listed everything he said on Google+(if true) it sounded like it would be amazing. Looking forward to tomorrow nite.

        6 hr battery life under heavy load (as described) is great! 

        • Anonymous

          I know.. 6 hours and he said he downloaded 4gb during that time with everything including brightness at 100%… I don’t think a single current android phone including 3g phones could do that.. if true, the gnex could get 24 hours with moderate usage

    • babadush

      I’m with you on this one.

      Yeah, unless they have dramatically improved the screen, I’ll pass. 

  • FortitudineVincimus

    kevler? more likely carbon fiber?

    • http://www.facebook.com/williams.g.a Greg Williams

      It’s most likely not kevlar, but it’s meant to mimic kevlar.  They hint at it in the video when they show the chemical structure of kevlar and also it looks just like kevlar.

      • EC8CH

        nah… I think they are really using Kevlar to make the back cover.

        seems kinda gimmicky to me but hey…

    • EC8CH

      Kevlar weave can be all black and look just like carbon fiber.  Kevlar is more impact resistant and less likely to shatter, which makes it a better choice for a material for the back cover.

      You will often see Kevlar weave with yellow in it, but Moto probably chose to go all black for a better look.

  • EC8CH

    The frame around the back cover actually looks shiny and metalic in that picture…

    much better than the plasticy looking black from from the early leaked images.

    you have regained my attention RAZR :-)

      Believe it or not, I’m on the fence on getting this over the Nexus. Just because build quality, signal strength in gps and voice calls, and maybe a better battery.

        Black_Man_X has said that both HTC and Motorola will have stock ICS devices out by the end of the year. I am waiting to see if Moto can deliver a stock, unlocked phone. If not, Galaxy Nexus, here I come.

        • http://www.flayme.com/troll/ bananatroll

          please let this be stock!!! if it is, farewell bionic and HELLO RAZR!!!

        • Anonymous

          Did Black_Man_X, say which was the better buy?

          • Anonymous

            Well I can tell you right now that any HTC or Moto phone will be better than a Samsung. I am going buy the track records of each company.

          • Anonymous

            I’ve had both brands and had issues with both Moto and HTC, no brand is perfect. I haven’t heard an abundance of complaints about the galaxy s2. so, Samsung must be improving.

        • Anonymous

          That’s quite the feat if they deliver that! 

        • Mrhug3

          The stock moto device that he was referring to is the Xoom. Either way, I’m seriously considering this OVER the nexus.
