Motorola Wants You to Attend Their September 5 RAZR HD Event

Next week, on September 5, the world is expecting Motorola to announce their next two Android devices for Verizon:  the DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR M. The unveiling will happen at a press event in NYC, which normally means, for press only. Not this time, though. Motorola wants 25 of their biggest fans that live in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut to attend and experience the presentation for themselves.

Here are the contest details:

  • The contest is live on Motorola’s Facebook Page and entries will be accepted until Wednesday August 29, 2012 at 11:59 AM ET
  • Contest is open to all legal residents of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
  • To enter, users can visit the Motorola Facebook page, click the “You. On Display.” tab, and follow the directions to upload a photograph depicting what Motorola means to them along with a caption explaining the photograph in fifty (50) words or less.

Sound easy enough? You have until tomorrow at midnight ET to enter. And who knows, you may just run into Droid Life while you are there!

    A whole event for just 2 devices? There MUST be more to come, especially for european and worldwide customers! Did you know, that the last “high end” qwerty device in Europe was the Milestone 2?

    So is every new Motorola phone going to have RAZR in the name? This is going to get real confusing real fast…

  • MafiaMM

    Sorry but I have other things to do that day

  • And in other news, the day after everyone’s Droid RAZR HD return period expires they will announce the Droid RAZR HD MAXX.

    • YourFriend

      OMG, so funny and original!!!!

  • already going to the Nokia event on the same day…

  • TJ

    This is terrible timing for Moto. The iPhone announced the following week will steal all their thunder.

    • Rotkaeqpchen

      It’s just gonna be another Apple Smartphone… People will someday get tired of these.

  • And my Original Droid RAZR will still be using an annoying pentile display with sub HD resolution…..good thing I can get an upgrade in November ( I would rather just wait for a perfect device to be released and pay full price for it and keep unlimited data.)

    • Steven Fields

      My thoughts exactly Champion1229. I will pay full price for a phone just so I can keep pissing off Verizon for having a “legacy” plan. However, even though the Original Razr’s display isn’t HD, it isn’t horrible…the regular person can’t even tell the difference – only us “in the know.”

      • Considering I JUST got my Razr as a CLN device, I think I’m going to hold onto it for as long as possible and then save up my money for a full priced phone! Considering my data usage is through the roof compared to most users ( it reset 6 days ago and I am already over 5 GB of usage) I simply could not afford to change plans! Maybe the Samsung Galaxy S4 or a similar device will be the one that I JUST absolutely NEED and I will save up my $600 and buy one.
        Personally, the screen on my Razr is perfect for normal usage but at night it bugs the hell out of me! The black ink looking blotches are just incredibly obnoxious and drive me crazy (I’m a little OCD, I like my devices to be perfect). The Pentile thing is again not that noticeable in normal usage but its still there and when looking at an icon that is colorful (like the People icon or the Google Drive icon) it is bad. The resolution isn’t a big deal but I liked on my Rezound where the movie filled up the entire screen! It made it look really cool! Also, I am having a few “stuck” pixels they’re easily fixable by just downloading a Pixel Fixer app and letting it run for 5 min or so but even that gets annoying after a while.

    Of course one of the only events to show near PA would be for press only, would love to go… >.>

  • TheDrunkenClam

    I prefer removable batteries, unlocked bootloaders, better quality displays, and bone stock android. That is all.

    • CopierITGuy

      Good thing we’re not picky, huh!?! Why won’t MOTO listen to us!?!?!

      You’d think they would have learned their lesson when the OG was their most successful device ever! It put MOTO back on the map – back in the game. Now, it’s same old, same old. Please, can we do what works?

    • MooleyBooleyTroll

      Bone stock Android is boring, Unlocked boot loaders are overrated, and I do agree with the displays 🙂

    • Rotkaeqpchen

      I prefere all that PLUS a qwerty keyboard 😀

  • cancerous_it

    I’d love to go by I’m manscaping my nethers that day.

  • Liderc

    They are beating this dead horse to death. I’d love to see Moto reveal they’re working on a Nexus. The Razr is a good phone, just leave it be.

    • I actually think this refresh is highly needed! The Droid RAZR and Max’s only real downfalls are their screens and the cameras so in theory, the DROID RAZR HD sounds like a beast of a phone that I would love to have ( I’ve got the original Droid RAZR until November!)

  • paul_cus

    I would’ve thought that maybe they’d want to include Chicago as well. It’s where Motorola is based, after all. Oh, well.

    • Pedro

      Is that near Mountain View, CA?

  • Stephen Winter

    will there be a root checker there?

    • John


  • MichaelFranz

    You know I wouldnt mind attending. I’m sure whoever attends gets free swag, free swag is always good, maybe a free phone

    • Korey Page

      That’s the only reason I considered asking my friend to go for me and she doesn’t care for Android products.

  • RedPandaAlex

    what do you think the chances are that the HD will at least match what LG has been showing off?

    • Detonation


      • CopierITGuy

        So, you’re saying there’s a chance!

  • noc007

    I’m wondering if they’ll be announcing a new Lapdock. I’m interested in the 500, but $200-$350 is just crazy. I might have pulled the trigger at $150, but I’d still feel like I overpaid.

  • I guess Motorola didn’t want to pick up the tab for transportation!

  • Patrick Flanigan

    I wonder if they will be unveiling a new tablet anytime soon? They need something amazing to stay relevant in the tablet space.
    Nexus 10 anyone?

    • CopierITGuy

      Ha! Did you see the disaster that was the XOOM? They need to leave the tablet market to ASUS where it belongs!


    we were all hoping for the Droid Razr Nexus

  • Michael Forte

    If the RAZR HD doesn’t have 2 GB of RAM and an unlockable bootloader,it’s DOA.

    • r0lct

      To people on this site maybe, but not the rest of the smartphone buying world.

    • CopierITGuy

      While I’d love to have these specs and Vanilla JB-goodness, most of the market just wants shiny and new. Sad… Thanks go out to Apple for dumbing-down the masses. Most people wouldn’t know a good smartphone if it roundhouse-kicked them in the face! Look how many idiots are eagerly anticipating the iDon’t 5 (or 6, whichever it is)!

    • Rotkaeqpchen

      2GB of RAM? What are you planning to run on your device? 100 apps at the same time? People sometimes do just want MOOOOOOORE of something they’ll never use…
