    [Rumor] The Launch Date of Verizon's Motorola Droid RAZR HD Delayed


    Motorola fans who have eagerly been awaiting the release of Moto's next flagship device, the Droid RAZR HD (aka the Droid Fighter & aka the Droid Vanquish), may be disappointed to learn that the device's launch has likely been delayed. Originally, all the rumored launch dates of the device pegged it for sometime in June. More than likely the new time-frame is late summer. The likely culprit behind the launch date move was to avoid pitting the Droid RAZR HD head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S III.

    The RAZR HD has some impressive specs, (a few of which actually surpass the SGS3 - like the 3300 mAh battery & the rumored 13 MegaPixel rear camera), however, for practicality's sake it actually makes sense not to launch the two phones together at the same time. If Verizon launched them simultaneously, they would basically be competing with themselves and dilute the sell-through numbers for both devices. Also, apparently it wasn't just Verizon's decision. Supposedly, Motorola doesn't want to take on the SGS3 directly either.

    Perhaps waiting a couple of months is the wise business move, but it means that Motorola fans will have to tough it out a bit longer. Maybe it will give Moto the opportunity to hype the phone up a bit more before its launch...

    Thanks for the tip, 94lt1!

    Here are a few more leaked pics of the RAZR HD.

    And from a recent apparent benchmark it appears to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU and ICS on-screen navigation keys. Notice how they moved the micro SD and HDMI port back to the side.

    Thinking the same thing. I have 5 phones on Verizon. One is currently due for an upgrade. But I'm still not sure if I'm willing to give up unlimited to move to shared.

    I still have two upgrades available. One I have been sitting on for almost a year and another just got back in March. My daughter has an iphone 4 which she loves. The other line has no need for an upgrade and once I get my wife into a smarthpone she will be happier than a pig in, well you know, for quite a while. I could see her using the Maxx for 2-3 years easy.
