Motorola shows off revamped Razr line Motorola Mobility, now part of Google, used today's press event in New York City to unveil three new additions to their Razr smartphone family.
The Droid Razr HD and the Droid Razr Maxx HD are the new flagships while the Razr M is more for those with a tighter budget.

Starting with the Maxx HD, the phone has a 4.7-inch, 1280-by-720 Super AMOLED HD display with 312 pixel-per-inch density and Motorola's own ColorBoost technology which makes for 'more vibrant color reproduction.'

The phone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, which should be as efficient and powerful as quad-core equivalents. Inside is 32GB internal storage and a massive 3300mAh battery. Dual cameras 8/1.3MP are standard as is a microSD slot, NFC, LTE and an HDMI port.

At launch, the device will have Android 4.0.4, with a Jelly Bean update expected before the end of the year.

The Razr HD shares the same exact specs except it has 16GB internal storage and a smaller 2350mAh battery, along with a smaller price tag, supposedly.

Motorola's new Razr M has an edge-to-edge 4.3-inch, 960x540 display, 8GB of storage and a 2000mAh battery. The Razr M will cost just $100 with contract while there was no price or set release date for the two flagships.

Watch your back with those phones Motorola... They look like rectangles with round corners.

I have the original Droid X 3g for my work phone. That thing has so much bloatware on it, it is just ridiculous. Not sure if I would buy another Motorola phone because of that, normally I would root and remove but with a work phone I just left it stock. At least you can get around Verizon's bullcrap tethering dictator rules without rooting! I am now eligible for a new phone though so I will have to peak around Verizon's new line up.
