Yeah, so how old is that page? Rumors of RAZR-MAXX????

Also, here's a copy and paste of what's in the upper right corner of the page.

The Fighter is listed as is the RAZR Maxx???? the phone they appear to be talking about is the RAZR HD - MAX.

The copy and paste didn't do an exact copy and paste, but the importants stuff is there.

Well this seems to point out that the fighter may be turned to the razr hd. So who knows. The chinese HD razrs were shown around the launch of the us razrs to begin with making us all wonder why they did not come hd to begin with.

I agree - sounding like the "What's the name going to be". If VZW wins - it'll be "DROID". IF MOTO wins - it'll be "RAZR".

Well here is my 2 cents on the whole thing. Anyone else remember that other Droid that emerged that apparently looked just like the "Droid Fighter" except without Moto's and Verizon's branding all over it? Well I'm guessing that that one might actually be the Droid RAZR HD while the one that has Moto's and Verizon's branding will actually be the Droid Fighter. This merely conjecture though, so there is no need to take it as truth.

So I don't think i understand lol. R we saying the "Droid fighter" could be named "razr maxx HD" making "fighter" pretty much code word for what they were releasing? Or they r in fact 2 different phones?

I think what Cris90 is saying is something similar to the Droid X/Milestone X. They are the same phone, but different names based on the carrier. So, the Droid Fighter could be the Verizon version of the RAZR HD.

This is mostly stuff we, (who are interested) have seen before, but gives us something to do while waiting for our/my next phone.

New Motorola Droid Razr HD (XT926) possibly headed to Verizon, could be the Droid Fighter Unwired View

Patiently/impatiently waiting for my next phone.

Just found this. A raw comparison between the Galaxy S3 and the Droid Fighter. (or whatever name it ends up being called)

Motorola Droid Fighter vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Raw Comparison Phone Reviews

Obviously much is based on rumor, but for us that are waiting to upgrade our phone, it's interesting reading. Which is all we have at the present time.

Trying to be patient, but it's getting more difficult as the days wear on.

Until moto quits encrypting their bootloaders, or going with faster updates I am going to stay away from their products. If i wanted something locked down I would get an iphone.

Well, now that Motorola Mobility is under the Google umbrella, we'll have to see what comes down regarding the bootloader situation. Their stance could soften with Google being the developer of the operating system.

Time will tell, however,

I don't buy it, and based on their own statements, I don't see them changing motorola a whole lot. I hope I'm wrong though, another Motorola Nexus device (Since the OG Droid was effectively a nexus) would be great...

That being said, with 2nd init, and other hacks, I'd rather be limited to a certain kernel and have Motorola's great build quality and signal retention, than have unlimited kernel access, and poorer quality. All I have to do is hold off and make sure 2nd-init can be obtained before purchasing the phone...

+1 Having a locked bootloader on the DX hasn't limited me much.

Motorola Switching to Snapdragon S4 Processors For Next Lineup of Phones, Including the RAZR HD? – Droid Life

If Moto is really using the S4 in this upcoming phone, I am willing to wait.

As far as the sale of Moto to whoever, I don't think it mattters. It's a global marketplace. G will keep the patent portfolio and manufacturing has limited returns. All of their phones are already made overseas, aren't they?

I'm not sure that the upgrade fee is large enough to make me commit to a GB phone for 2 years.

(Yes, it will be upgraded, but I would rather have a phone designed for ISC from the start)

Same here. I will say though if all it has different from the Droid maxx is an HD screen then I will be so pissed I didn't upgrade before the fee. Ics or not this phone better be awesome

Yes there is a lot of stuff in the pic.

However, what we need is something like a pre production phone given to a reviewer to review! Yes, specs can change from pre-production to actual production models but usually changes are minor. At least then we know the phone was coming and also the majority of the specifications.

C'mon Verizon/Motorola/Google, toss us a bone!

I'm waiting patiently... (what choice do I have) but it's difficult to not get impatient. But then again, what good would that do?

Have we seen this before? Possible photo of the Droid Fighter/ Droid RAZR Max HD?

If you are talking about the Moto phone on the right, there is a very good possibility that it could be. The style is very much like the RAZR but also different. The Motorola logo is off to one side near the earpiece. If nothing else is could be an early render being used for the purpose in the photo.

EDIT: I think that on the right is the smaller Xyboard now.

I thought they were referring to the device in the middle. The one on the right side is waaaaaaaay too big to be a phone.

One in middle looks like one of their phones thatwould slide out with a querty keyboard. Those are smaller phones. The one on the right is about the right size of the razr series. If u look top-left u can see tablets size, def way bigger.

Putting my hand in the same position as the one in the picture, the one in the center is significantly bigger than my Droid X. The one on top is a 10" tablet. The one on the right is a smaller tablet (7"? 8.9"?). It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too big to be a phone.

I'd imagine we'll hear about this phone around the time the S3 is launched (not necessarily when it's announced on 5/3). Verizon would do well to encourage it's customers (and potential customers) to wait just a little longer, rather than move to another carrier and get the S3.

Although I'm sure the number of users who switch carriers for a specific android phone are remarkably small... it's one thing to switch carriers to get an iPhone (back in the day), but another to switch just to get a slightly different flavor of android.

So I guess I'm back on waiting for the Fighter.

The Nexus was the biggest piece of crap ever. Horrible battery life and reception issues.. Never again Samsung.

This upgrade fee and no new information on the Fighter has me considering giving in and getting the MAXX! This whole thing is getting frustrating. What do I do?

I considered doing the same, but I'm going to hold out for two things: the family data plan (supposedly available this summer) and a BOGO deal on one of these newer phones (the Maxx will be fine, but I'd rather have the Fighter...I think). Getting a BOGO deal with the upgrade fee will be cheaper than buying two Maxx's now.

I say wait if you can live with your current phone for a few more months.

I don't like the screen on the current generation Razrs, I think text looks just awful. I can't live though a new contract with that screen. The higher res screens of the GNex and especially the Rezound are just beautiful and render everything (inc text) beautifully. However, both those phones have issues (plus they are getting "old") where I wouldn't recommend either of those phones as well.

The upgrade fee had me about to jump on the GNex, but again, I have to keep this phone for almost 2 years so I want to make the best choice.

I agree, I fail to see 960x540 pentile as being an upgrade over the 854x480 of my X at all...

Makes me wonder if I'll have to hold onto my upgrade till this fall... maybe when the next gen Tegra3+ LTE devices hit. Doesn't seem like Verizon has any interest in introducing a real next generation phone anytime soon.

It seems to me that Motorola and it's parent company feel Verizon customers aren't worthy of Ice Cream Sandwich

BAM!

DROID RAZR HD Will Essentially Look Just Like This Device – Droid Life

"Along with the HD screen, we will likely also see a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip inside clocked at 1.5GHz, 12 or 13MP camera, 3300mAh battery from the MAXX, and 4G LTE."

Like, but how will this stack up vs. a SGSIII? or will Verizon even get one?

So I know marketing should never really be taken as gospel, but can someone tell me what phone is in this commercial? Looks like a Razr without buttons...and the commercial just aired a week ago, right after the fighter was supposed to come out...maybe a little delayed?

They were just probably using it as a prop simulating the images on the screen.
The keys don't appear until you hit the top lock button like my Incredible 2, but then again what new moto phones keys always stay light/visible? Battery waster.

Now it looks like Verizon might be preparing for price drops on current "flagship" phones. Sign of new phones coming? I would guess Dinc 4G for sure and hopefully a new Moto.

so this couldnt have happened at a worse time. My Droid 1 just kicked the bucket and wont charge. only needed it to last a little bit longer.... So should I file with the insurance and have them send me a replacement phone? wonder what it would be o.0

EDIT: ok just called and said I'd like to know what phone I would get and how much. $100 and it'd be the Droid 1 that I had....wtf $100? a bionic costs $100 right now at verizon....I've been paying for insurance, how is that $100???

Insurance is a rip, I do an auto deposit of 6.99 into a savings account every month for the past 5 years. Now I have over $400in there for if and when I drop/lose or otherwise feel like buying the latest and greatest phone.

With Verizon preparing a bigger and probably badder version of the DROID RAZR, this model is likely just an incremental update for Chinese consumers who haven’t bought a RAZR yet.
So that article pretty much has nothing to do with the Droid Fighter, possibly known as Verizon's RAZR HD (MAXX?)

Also, it's well known that China has had a HD version of the RAZR since december I believe, so I'd assume this is just a minor tweak of that model.

That article is talking about Motorola MT887, isn't that the Droid Fighter?

This looks nothing like the supposed leaked Fighter. If anything, it resembles that other phone, Bullet.


I ain't believing it.
