Motorola’s Facebook “Mystery Phone” A Big Letdown

Advertisement

Yesterday morning, we saw what appeared to be a marketing campaign Motorola had started in anticipation of announcing a new smartphone. The company began releasing a series of clues on its Facebook page, hinting as to the identity of the mystery phone, with plans to finally reveal the model this Friday. We speculated at the time that the company might be building up to the announcement of the Droid RAZR HD, but we would need some more of Motorola’s hints to know for sure. Well, now the second hint’s been posted, and it’s quickly become clear that this little promotion isn’t going to end up revealing anything new at all.

Motorola’s latest hint includes the revelation that the mystery phone is “in market in the U.S. from Motorola already”. Based on what else it shares, the manufacturer is likely talking about the Atrix HD (above).

We noted yesterday that such a thing was possible, since Motorola never did actually say this was a new phone it was talking about. Still, such a lengthy tease for an already-released phone sounded so unlikely, we were willing to give things the benefit of the doubt. Apparently, even that was too generous.

This leaves us all the more curious to learn just when Motorola or Verizon will make the Droid RAZR HD official. Everything appears nearly ready to go for the phone’s launch, but we’ve yet to get any idea of just when that might be.
