    One of the more popular accessories for the recently released Motorola Droid RAZR is its HD Media Dock. The dock allows you to easily connect your RAZR to a compatible HDTV or monitor for viewing on a larger screen. If you're more interested in an audio experience there's even a 3.5mm audio jack for hooking up to headphones or speakers. More basically, the dock is a perfect way to keep your smartphone on your desk, displayed at an optimal viewing angle, all the while keeping it charged up and ready to go. We did have some difficulty getting the phone to completely seat onto the connectors ...

    Earlier this month, we saw a Motorola Droid RAZR variant destined for release in China that featured a couple design changes from the original handset, but looked like it would retain the same hardware specs. A closer look at China's RAZR offerings is now available, revealing that Motorola has beefed-up the handset with the addition of a 13-megapixel camera, as well as one version with a 720p screen. The phone we saw was the MT917 (above, center), the TD-SCDMA version of the RAZR. It's joined by the XT928, which will run on China's CDMA2000 network. Whereas the MT917 looked like a RAZR ...

    The Motorola Droid RAZR, which we are currently reviewing in our labs, has been rooted by the community. Word of warning for those who want to apply: the application will not allow you to revert even if you run into trouble so you better think twice before taking the plunge (or probably wait a couple of more weeks). For details as well as instructions, follow the source link below. Meanwhile there's a new ad ready for the Motorola Droid RAZR, prepared by Verizon, and hopefully you won't have to go through all of that just to get your hands on the razor-thin Kevlar protected device.

    In our last 1080pd video demo recorded on the Motorola Droid RAZR our viewers noted that there was some odd "swimming" in the recorded video. After some discussion in the comments we decided to test the leading theory: image stabilization at close range has some unintended consequences. Original Video (with image stabilization) Second video (without image stabilization) So, let's put that theory to the test! Let us know if this video (with image stabilization turned off) is any better. What do you think? Is the RAZR's image stabilization doing more harm than good? Let us know in the comments!

    The Droid RAZR is the latest flagship smartphone from both Motorola and Verizon, featuring LTE, a dual-core processor, and the thinnest design to-date. But how does this influence what you see on the screen, and what can you expect the first time you turn on your new RAZR? The first thing you'll notice is just how fast the phone boots up -- especially the very first boot, which is usually the longest. As soon as you're booted up the waiting begins. Like most CDMA devices, the RAZR has to activate itself with the network. In this case activation took an annoyingly long two or three minutes. ...

    At 11:11 this morning, Motorola's Droid RAZR officially went up for sale. While we were initially expecting the LTE smartphone to drop on November 10, last week we caught wind of this new plan to shape the RAZR's release around this 11/11/11 theme. It turns out that idea is spreading a little farther than just the RAZR's release date and time, and also extending to its launch price. We touched on this offer with the RAZR hardware tour video we just published, but here's the full skinny: for today only, over at Amazon, you can place an order for the Droid RAZR on-contract for just... you ...

    The Motorola Droid RAZR, the latest flagship phone on the Verizon network, is also the thinnest smartphone to date. In this video we'll look at the hardware that encloses the phone, show you where all the buttons and cameras are, and give you a tip on how to install the LTE microSIM. We also compare the RAZR's dimensions to those of the Droid Bionic. Battery 1780 mAh 12.50 hours Talk time 204 hours Stand-by time Dimensions 5.15 x 2.71 x 0.28 (130.7 x 68.9 x 7.1 mm) 4.48 oz (127 g) Display 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display 540 x 960 pixels Processor 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor ...

    What can you expect to get when you pick up your very own Motorola Droid RAZR? Let's take a look inside the box! First off we've got a few manuals, a standard microUSB cable, and a very cool USB power adapter. This wort is a small cube with fold-out prongs (to make traveling with it easier). While that's cool, it also has not one, but two USB ports! That's right, folks! You can charge your phone and Bluetooth headset, or two phones, or phone and smart watch, at the same time, using the same power-hungry wall wort. This not only frees up an outlet, it also save on phantom power loads -- by ...

    The Motorola Droid RAZR, the thinnest smartphone to date, isn't hampered in any way by its size. Being able to shoot 1080p video is no small feat. Couple that with auto-focus and image stabilization and you've really got something! In this video we'll take a quick look around my front yard at some high-contrast, high-detail "subjects" (yes, they're flowers), as well as some quick action. You'll get a feel for not only the video quality, but also the audio that you can get if you decide to get your own Razr. How is the audio and video quality? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

    In recent months, we've been noticing Motorola releasing smartphones (and now tablets) with a distinct set of angled corners. It's certainly a catchy look, and helps to differentiate Motorola smartphones from the rest of the pack at a glance, but what if a more traditional, rounded-corner design is to your liking? Chinese smartphone consumers should soon get an opportunity to buy just such a variation, in the form of the Motorola MT917. The MT917 is probably up around 98% Droid RAZR. The only substantial changes are the swapping-out of the phone's cellular radio for one supporting ...

    So far, all recent signs have pointed to Verizon releasing the Motorola Droid RAZR on November 10. We've seen that date pop up time and time again, from the ship-by date for pre-orders, to a leaked doc identifying it as the day of the RAZR's all-channel launch. It now seems like one exec might have been absentmindedly flipping through his calendar when inspiration struck (Oh! That's a much more interesting date!); a new advertisement for the RAZR sees its release date get pushed back a day, now set to formally launch on November 11, or 11/11/11. Not only is the phone's launch date going ...

    We're just about a week away from the release of the Motorola Droid RAZR on Verizon, and that means efforts to market the smartphone are about to step things up a notch. One tool that Verizon's used in the past is a scavenger hunt to win Droid phones and other electronics, and it looks like we're in for a repeat with the RAZR. The Twitter account DroidLanding, which acts as the mouthpiece for these events, posted about an hour ago for the first time since the Bionic promotion ended, name-checking the RAZR and letting us know that we should start getting ready to learn about the contest ...

    Motorola's Droid RAZR for Verizon LTE is nearly upon us, and we had almost put together a complete picture of the phone's release plans. Verizon hadn't given a hard-and-fast release date, though, and while there were plenty of signs pointing to it being November 10, we were unable to say for sure. Now, with just over a week to go until the RAZR drops, a new leak formally names November 10 as the RAZR's launch date. Pre-orders for the RAZR opened a couple days back, with the promise that handsets would ship out by November 10. While that certainly implied that the 10th would be the phone's ...

    Today marks the first day of pre-orders for Motorola's Droid RAZR on Verizon. Once it gets here, apparently around November 10, there will be no shortage of accessories for the smartphone. If you were thinking of picking some up on launch day, pricing for the group has leaked, revealing what you'll have to shell out to do so. Verizon will be selling some of the new Webtop accessories in its stores, including two new models of Lapdock. That good news here is that, while they're still more expensive than many users might be able to justify, especially when you add that together with the cost ...

    Ever since Motorola announced the Droid RAZR, we've been trying to divine its release date. Right before the event that formally announced the phone, we heard a rumor of its planned arrival for November 10. When it was time to finally unveil the phone, though, all we learned was that pre-orders would begin tomorrow, October 27, with the phone finally becoming available at an unspecified time in November. With pre-orders about to begin, Verizon's put out a statement announcing them, as well as offering a little bit more certainty about when the RAZR find its way into the hands of customers. ...

    While Verizon subscribers in the US wait for the arrival of the Motorola Droid RAZR for the carrier's LTE network, the rest of the world is waiting for news of the international version of the smartphone. We've been told that it's on the way sometime next month, but details are sparse. Today, the FCC has published the certification paperwork for a new Motorola smartphone; could it be the international RAZR? Frequency support has been tested for AT&T's WCDMA bands, which is about what we'd expect for an international phone arriving at the FCC in the States. Motorola is quite good at not ...

    Last week, just as we were waiting to hear the announcements of Motorola's Droid RAZR and Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, a leak revealed some release dates for upcoming Verizon handsets, including both those models and the HTC Rezound. We were hoping for confirmation of the November 10 date for those phones from at least one of their launch events, but it did not come. While we still await official new of their retail availability, a new leaked Verizon screenshot shows the HTC and Samsung still on-track for a November 10 arrival. According to the screenshot, taken from Verizon's internal computer ...

    It won't be long now before we know the fate of Motorola's Droid RAZR, and we're expecting a glut of information on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to follow later-on in the day. A new Verizon leak just might steal some of the thunder from those announcements, claiming to reveal their release dates, along with that of the HTC Rezound. The released pic of a Verizon calendar of release dates appears to be legit enough; it claims that the RAZR, Galaxy Nexus, and Rezound are all due to arrive on the carrier on the very same day, November 10. If this proves accurate, that is shaping-up to be one heck ...

    Now that cellphone image sensors have evolved beyond the dark days of sub-megapixel blockiness, photo quality has become an important determinant when choosing among handsets. To that end, we've collected sample shots from some upcoming models, hopefully giving you a basic idea of what to expect when you release the shutter. Of course, as we've noted before, test shots from pre-release devices often don't represent the output from shipping products: camera firmware, which plays just as important a role as sensor quality, is often tweaked right up until the last minute. In situations where ...

    Back in August, we got a look at Motorola's Droid HD, and shortly thereafter heard a rumor that the phone was being developed under the codename Spyder. Flash-forward to this month, and we uncovered a test pic taken by a Motorola model identifying itself as a Droid RAZR. A new rumor says that all of these are the same upcoming smartphone. According to the source, the handset will be dual-core and feature a 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED display; we haven't heard if it will also use a screen without a PenTile matrix, as we've heard the Motorola Edison will. Beyond that, the phone is said to feature ...

    We already know that a device called the Droid HD has been taking test photos. The Droid HD might be one of the most highest spec'ed devices in the Droid lineage yet, packing a 4.5" qHD (or even 1280x720) display, an 8MP camera on the back with 1080p video capture, and a super thin bezel. Despite its thinness, it still makes room for an HDMI output and dedicated camera button. Still unknown are details about its shipping Android version (we're hoping for Ice Cream Sandwich) or its processor, RAM, etc. Engadget has posted some images that give us a first real glimpse of the upcoming ...

    A couple days ago we got a look at the Motorola Droid HD, after first hearing the name earlier this summer. Droid-life noticed the similarity between the smartphone and a rumored Motorola Android we caught wind of earlier, but could they be one and the same? In mid-July we heard a rumor about a Motorola called Dinara. It was supposed to have a 4.5-inch screen – possibly in HD – and be a thinner, lighter Bionic. Looking back at the Droid HD, it's easy to see how they could make that connection. Apparently, at least according to a source with Verizon, the Droid HD isn't the Dinara at all, ...

    Usually one to keep its EXIF data pretty close the to chest, Motorola may have slipped up and revealed an intriguing new model by way of some Flickr images: the Motorola Droid HD. Notably, the shots were captured in Libertyville, Illinois, where Motorola happens to have a campus. Obviously the name brings to mind immediate connotations of a phone with 720p resolution, which would best even the Retina and qHD displays found on the iPhone 4 and high-end Android handsets, respectively. Such a large number of pixels is not out of the realm of possibility, as the next Nexus device (said to once ...

    After staying up last night to watch the Google/Samsung event, we went to bed as visions of Ice Cream Sandwiches danced in our heads. Today, everyone's got Android 4.0 on their minds, and for good reason. While plenty of Android fans will be picking up a Galaxy Nexus, if only to be first to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, the rest of us are thinking about updates. We've heard that it should be technically possible to release the OS for phones currently capable of running Gingerbread, but whether or not that translates into manufacturers actually doing so (or in a timely manner) remains to be ...
