Live From Motorola’s RAZR HD Event in NYC

The Motorola and Verizon event is about to kickoff in NYC at 2PM ET (11AM PT). We are fully expecting them to announce the DROID RAZR HD and the RAZR M, the latter being the rumored “edge-to-edge” device that was the talk of the town over the weekend. No word yet on price, but if you browse through a number of posts from the last couple of months, you can get a feel for the specs that are involved in both phones.

Moto always puts on a good show, but this is the first with new CEO Dennis Woodside at the helm. It should be interesting to see his influence and approach to an event like this, especially after years of getting used to Sanjay Jha’s on-stage antics.

We have a man on the scene to take it all in and get us some hands-on time, but the rest of us can at least watch the live portion thanks to a live stream that we have included below. We also have a live blog going, if color commentary is your thing. Ready?

    I just don’t get the strategy of Motorola or Nokia. Each introduced new flagship phones today, with very impressive specs. But then, the availability date is way out in neverland. As far as I can tell, the shipping date for the RAZR HD, RAZR HD Max and the Nokia 920 is sometime in Q4. It has to be really dumb to introduce the phone months before it ships. Apple is going to introduce its iPhone 5 next week with an availability date a few weeks later. Anyone, like me, who is on the fence will probably go for the iPhone. If the RAZR HD Max was out at the same time, I’d go for that. But, I think i’ll pre-order the iPhone next week…I just dont want to wait!

    Why can’t they just go straight AOSP already… All the interfaces are horrible.

    Why does page 4 of the live feed show 16 hours of talk time and then it contradicts itself and says 21 hours of talk time on a picture just a few minutes later.

    What’s the time mark for the Jelly Blur?

  • duke69111

    This band is not quite the London Symphony Orchestra.

  • Pegleg

    Presentation was a big dud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still no firm dates for the MAXX HD…just before the holidays…really VZW/??????????????????

  • Alpha_Axl

    No MOTOACTV 2? Are there any other conferences or events that would have this? Just making sure…

  • Robert Jakiel

    This was the most underwhelming and craptastic event I have seen in a long time. Hell the Nokia event and the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 was far more exciting that this! Not that I will ever switch but if Nokia can get these to market at a good contract price in combination with WP8 they have a winner on their hands. Whereas this Moto event with 3 more RAZR phones… like we need 3 more? Come on.

  • Nice job Motorola.

  • mbagasao

    waiting for all the quick hands on vids that’ll hit youtube.

  • nightscout13

    MAXX HD….. I can’t wait to get my hands on it…..

  • Aaron

    i cant handle how bad the music choices are for this press conference.

  • WOW, that crowd is awful… They get M’s for being miserable

    • Robert Jakiel

      That’s probably because there was nothing special to be seen here. How many freakin’ RAZRs are needed? Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX, RAZR Dev, RAZR HD, RAZR HD MAXX, RAZR M, RAZR HD MAXX Dev. It’s the same damned phones over and over again. No quad core Tegra 3 or S4 Pro, no 2 gig RAM, just a damned screen? All this for a freakin SCREEN!?

    It’s going to be a while before I’m up for a new contract. Here’s hoping the developer’s edition thing keeps going, and doesn’t end up being ridiculously expensive over the locked-down version.

    By the time the hollidays rolls around this phone will be about a year late to the party

  • picaso86

    are we getting Jelly Bean soon?

  • derek connolly

    droid razr max hd developer edition..

    • wickets

      should be an amazing phone

  • master94

    Wow loving the promise of actually updating on time or $100 off new phones

    • Kevin Raymond

      It’s looking like the OG RAZR and MAXX could be getting JB, which is pretty good to hear.

  • 4G LTE, Android, Battery, Developer Editions, Jelly Bean, Upgrades ($100 refund for those who dont get them), new “Razr” family

  • Kyle Miller

    So far Moto. FAIL! No musical acts…well unknown, sucky, predictable bands!

  • Michael

    What exactly is meant by “edge to edge display”? I hope for Motorola’s sake it’s pretty impressive or they may be in danger of becoming another RIM…..

    • LionStone

      Left edge to right edge…but its definitely not “stretched corner to corner” like the one guy said.

  • jaybar

    whoever that band is – they suck

  • moelsen8

    is this a concert or a phone unveiling? i just got back from a late lunch thinking i missed the whole thing and there’s still a band playing??

  • MKader17

    • Amenemhat1

      +1 friend!

    • michael arazan

      I’d like that 60 foot curved screen behind them that they are using with the demo. That screen would be awesome

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio
