The Fighter is starting to feel a lot like the Bionic...lots of rumors, no actual product for a very long time. So, by the time it comes out, it will probably be eclipsed by something else that comes out earlier.

Droid Razr coming in blue? Does it even matter any more?

Im right there with you. I check everyday for news on this Phone. You see "droid Razr" in the title of the article only to given news about colors. Even sadder is the fact that they are still talking about the "Razr" and not the "Razr Maxx". I think people are done caring about the original "Razr". We want news of "New" phones! Glad to see Incredible 4G LTE making its way, but seriously doubt there are people jumping for that phone, it doesn't bring anything new to the table. I might end up with the S3 if Moto doesn't announce something soon, well if Verizon even gets the S3.

It would be nice if they had the Maxx in the same colors (I'd probably go for a white one), but I'm not liking that shade of blue...it looks like that Nokia Windows phone.

The colors on the Razrs are so subtle I don't know why they bother. They need to color the front bezel and the back.

Just gimme some solid info on the Maxx HD/Droid Fighter in black and let's get on with it.

Sometimes delaying the info for to long after teasing with rumors dosn't build more hype and interest. People get discouraged by constantly being told absolutely nothing and just move on.

I was and sortof still am pretty excited about the Maxx HD/Fighter but I'm getting to the edge of that envelope. One of these days I might just say, "Ahhh, ok, what else ya got?"

I said it before and will say it again, C'mon Verizon Google/Motorola, throw us a bone!"

+1. I'm actually about to call it quits and upgrade to the razr maxx once I see a sale on it. Having been on the first droid since the day it came out, I've put up with all its slowness and problems for far too long.

If its coming out in august/sept, im going for the maxx. If I see a sale of any kind (preferably $100+), I'm going for the maxx. "no news is good news" yea right...

Anyone know if Moto is at the CTIA in New Orleans this week? Would hope that they announce something about the Razr HD this week.

It's not like Moto/Verizon is releasing these rumors or is teasing about any upcoming device (have they?). In fact they need to keep quiet on any new devices has to not hurt sales of current ones. There's no point is being frustrated, they have to do this.

It's our job to dig up what we can so we can hurt current sales so we get the lastest/greatest.

From what I've read, none of the big players (Moto, HTC, Samsung) have press conferences scheduled. So, chances are that we won't hear any big news from CTIA.

I Have copy and pasted the following from a TechRadar piece about the CTIA Show.
______________________________________

While we expect to see handsets from all of the major manufacturers, there will be some rather conspicuous omissions: Sony, BlackBerry and Motorola have informed TechRadar that they will not have a presence at the show.
In a conversation recently with Sony's PR representative, Chelsea Alexander, she stated simply that "Sony Mobile Communications will not be attending CTIA this year."
Additionally, Sprint also informed TechRadar that they too wil not have a presence on the show floor.
______________________________________

So there you have it,

Just chatted with Verizon again, of course they have no idea. I asked "Do you have any information about the Razr HD or the Galaxy S3." Their reply "No, we do not have any information on upcoming phones, but is there a phone we currently have that peaks your interest?"

Im tired of checking everyday for news.. Come on, give us something Verizon. Anyone have a twitter account for the MOTO employee that took the pictures with the Razr HD? Be nice to see if we can get info from him, although he probably wouldn't answer cause he would lose his job.

If anybody locates any information, please share.

Well said. I'm patiently holding onto my X as my renewal date was last month. As it looks like right now, I know the specs of the SGSIII and will be getting that if it is released on Verizon before knowing any specs on the Droid Fighter/HD.

I'd be shocked if VZW released an SGSIII before the next big Moto device. And like previous posters intimated, as long as VZW keeps releasing a new "Color of the Month" RAZR it might be a while before we see a spec'ed up Moto. I hope I'm wrong.

I'm betting we'll see a new iPhone before the other two. And truth be told...if it has a bigger screen and LTE, I'll take a look. I'm struggling with a GNex with crappy reception and my previous and only other smartphone was a Thunderbolt. I really want to try a Moto device before I bail on Android.

I turned in my GNex, couldn't deal with the reception any longer. Got a RAZR and am very pleased with it. Am now much more patiently waiting for the next Motorola device.

Verizon is slashing the price of the Droid Razr Maxx by 100.00 dollars. Hopefully this means that they will announce the Razr HD soon. See the link below.

Cool I'd pull the trigger if...

Lets see. Cut the price from $299 to $199.

Then I take my $30 for renewing a contract. The extra $100 off for buyng a 4G LTE phone and finally an additional $50 off for buying on line... That would mean my total cost would be $19 plus the $30 upgrade fee.

I'd pull that trigger.

Yeah, I'm going to second that "what?"

I know that I have a personal $30 "upgrade discount" and a $50 "corporate discount", but when I had my 24 hour flirtation with the GNex Verizon was very clear that I could only use one or the other. Not both.

Assuming that the previously mentioned possible sale of the Maxx is true, and is applicable to existing customers as well (the fine print in the picture clearly shows that it's a new customer price) then my cost would be $200-$50 discount+$30 upgrade fee for a total of $180.

Which I still may take, as it seems that the Fighter might be an August release at this point, and I'm not willing to wait that long.

PS - It could very well be that the previous poster gets a much better discount than I do - I know that the incentives keep piling up the longer you wait to upgrade. I have a friend with a dumb phone that can basically choose anything for free because Verizon is desperate for the data plan $.

PPS - I suspect the Maxx sale will fall in line with the prices at Amazon and Wirefly - that is, $200 for new customers and $230 for existing ones. Makes the most sense to me. Of course, they've had those prices for a while now, so if we're lucky we may see another price drop from the third party sites in response.

So with this price drop, is the Razr HD coming sooner then later? I want to hear something BEFORE the Galaxy S3 Launches, so i can make a decision.

199 is tempting on the Maxx.

We have to get two phones and we do have our final 100 NE2 credit. I'm almost about done waiting on the Fighter/RazrHD/Whatever because I'm getting antsy.

I was pretty much sold on the GS3, but knowing Verizon, they will price it at 299 (While AT&T, Sprint and TMo will sell it for 199, no doubt). I honestly would prefer not to get another Samsung product, as I have a GT10.1 and their lack of updates has been no surprise.


Decisions, decisions. I think I'll see if I can find a coupon code online to bring that price down any further and sweeten the deal. Hmmmm.

My guess is later. Obviously they want to get rid of their inventory of RAZR MAXX's before introducing a new product. They will not sell anything new until at least 2 weeks after the sale ends to prevent people from returning the MAXX for the HD. Based on similar tactics with the Incredible 2 and Rezound I'm guessing we are looking at a couple of months before the HD is released.

Yeah, I see that logic but Motorola would be dumb to let everyone jump on the Samsung S3 bandwagon without "officially" announcing a date for the next "verizon droid branded" flagship. For example, S3 is to come out in Late June. If Moto doesn't announce, say Mid July release for the Razr HD, then most people will have already jumped on the S3 instead of possibly waiting an few weeks to get the latest Razr.

Who says they have to get rid of the Maxx inventory? With the price they've been selling the regular Razr for, perhaps that is the low end, the maxx is the mid tier and the Fighter is the high end.... Why not have a price point for everybody?

(I would say just ditch the Razr and have the Maxx and the Fighter, but with them still bringing out new colors, I don't see it that way).

I think it depends on the specs of the Fighter/HD. If it is a RAZR MAXX with upgraded screen and processor I can't see them keeping both around. If it has a larger screen or something else to set it apart perhaps they will keep both around. It would not surprise me either way.

That's exactly what I'd do.

I'm holding on to my DX (been amazing since installing an ICS ROM), but the first phone that comes out with "acceptable" specs (4" screen on Inc4G won't do it for me), I'm going to get.

I know the specs for the Galaxy S3 and that would probably do it, though I'm pretty anti-Samsung due to crappy phones I've had before and total lack of updating their phones.

If the S3 comes out and Moto has been mum, I'll have no choice but to upgrade.

I've been going back and forth all day over just getting the Maxx. Since I keep my phones for the full two years (unless of course it's just an atrocious device) I don't think I'd be happy with the Maxx for two years. Hell, I'd just get the Inc 4G if that were the case.

I'm giving them until the day the Galaxy S3 is released on Verizon. If I don't hear anything about their new flagship, I'll be enjoying my S3 for two years (and will be avoiding all tech websites for a while so I don't know what I might be missing. LOL)

On the VZW site? The $169.99 price is supposed to be for upgrades plus a $30 upgrade fee so it's still the same price.

199.99 without logging in. Login and then price drops to 149.99 for 50.00 Discount (upgrade bonus/Loyalty discount).
Add the 30 dollar charge for upgrade and you end up with 179.99.

That is the price that it shows for me.

WTH? I tried going through the process of selecting it and checking the price in my cart and it's charging me $199.99 PLUS $30.

Had you used your last NE2 discount already? If not, maybe this is why you are seeing a $50 discount. I thought it used to be $100. The NE2 discount was phased out but current customers were grandfathered in for one last discount.

I emailed Costco to see if they would match the discounted price and so far they are not.

Did you go thru the My Verizon page? You have to log in to it and follow the upgrade link to see the loyalty discount if you're eligible.

I logged into "My Verizon" and clicked the upgrade link. It shows the Razr Maxx at $149.99. I'm assuming this includes the "loyalty" discount they been dangling in front of me since around the first of the year. I'm also assuming that the $30 upgrade fee will be added in later. (If I were to buy the Maxx, which I'm not at this time)

I waiting for information on the Maxx HD/Fighter. (Official information of course)

Good luck to all of us in getting the phones we want and to getting phones that treat us right!

Waiting until my area gets 4G before I take the dive on a upgrade. The SG3 looks good but I've had bad experiences with a ton of sanding products and their usually weak GPS is enough to steer me away. Guess my DROID x will have to keep chugging along for a few more months.

Hmmmm, I have always seen the $50 discount on upgrades which I always thought was part of my corporate discount plan. I just looked today, and no $50 discount. Either Verizon has changed their terms with my company, or it may be because I've been off contract for one year effective tomorrow.

The "Loyalty" upgrade is either $30 or $50 depending on your plan. I think you have to have a plan of $99 or higher to get the 50 discount.


Back on topic... I just saw this article this morning: Where On Earth Is Motorola? - Mobility - Smartphones - Informationweek. Might have some validity since we haven't heard anything out of Moto for a while...

Agree, if Moto is sitting around waiting, it just means we are sitting around waiting, and well, i am already sitting around wiggling around like I have to go to the restroom with no restroom in sight. With that said, if no announcement by Moto before the S3 is released, then i will be owning an S3. Prefer the Moto but we can't wait forever.

Where would it show loyalty discount? I selected upgrade phone, logged in with primary account (moms, hope that doesn't make a difference), selected the maxx which said 199.99. Went through added to cart and at the end still was 199.99. Is it just primary account? I've been available for an upgrade since 5/5/2010

Sounds like you don't have the Loyalty discount. If you log in, go to eligible upgrades. "your now looking at the page that shows "your device", "your moms device" and who ever elses that is under the account. Under each phone will show the date that it is eligible for an upgrade." Under one of those phones there should be a 50.00 loyalty bonus if the account has one available. If none of the phones have this then unfortunately the account didn't qualify. Now what the qualifications are, I have no clue.

I was pretty underwhelmed with the S3, but it'll probably be very similar to the Razr HD spec wise, so if it looks/feels better than it looks online I may do the same thing.

I still would love a phone with the maxx's battery, on-screen keys, and a decent screen. But the longer I wait, the further in the future my next upgrade will be...

Agree 100%. Moto build quality is just better. Kevlar backing vs. cheap plastic, Nano coating vs. umm none, gorilla glass vs. umm none, better antenna vs. okay antenna, bigger battery vs. standard battery, etc.

dang i think i just talked myself into waiting for the Moto, no matter what..
