I don't think that tells us anything really. Some angry comments in that article, makes me think twice about getting a Motorola phone if they are going to continue to but out a better version every 4 months and stop support on devices so quickly.

Well, since China finally approved the merger on Saturday, maybe we'll finally see some info from Motorola in the next few days after the merger is finalized.

You know, if you go to Amazon.com and type in the search box "Motorola Maxx HD" or "Motorola Fighter" it will pull up a list of accesories for both. The interesting thing about the Maxx HD listing is a dock

Amazon.com: Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD Station with HDMI Cable and Rapid Wall Charger - Non-Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

That says the box includes an adapter for the RAZR Maxx.

What does all this mean? Your guess is a good as mine.

It may be easy to interpret it as this:

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD / Station with HDMI Cable and Rapid Wall Charger

But I think it was intended as this:

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX / HD Station with HDMI Cable and Rapid Wall Charger

I believe there is an HD dock and regular dock depending on if you want the HDMI out to work. I know my Xoom has both a regular and "HD" dock available.

I agree, the products are the "HD Dock" and "HD Station" and they are compatible with the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, so the "HD" is part of the product name rather than being part of the name of the compatible devices.

Between the Microsoft Intellectual Property allegations, the Motorola-Google merger and Verizon's trying to decide what to do in regards to data plans, there appear to be several possible factors delaying the introduction of the Droid Fighter. The immediate question seems to be whether all of the relevant factors can be resolved in time to let people get the DF (like that won't result in some jokes) before the data plans change.

I just want some type of formal announcement as to when it is expected to be out so I can make my decision. I would like to wait for the Droid Razr HD but if it isn't coming out for quite some time, i will be pre-ordering the Galaxy S3. My Droid X is killing me.

Sure, that a logical possibilty, hence my statement "Your guess is as good as mine"..... and you could be 100% correct.

But I, like so many people here, would just like some official, or even semi-official info regarding the Maxx HD/Fighter. Like somebody else said now that China has approved the sale (thier approval was the last hurdle) of Motorola Mobility to Google, maybe some good info will be soon forthcoming. Sure hope so anyway.

Default Any info

Any info on this phone would be amazing. I love my DROID X but its starting to show its age. Slow boot up time, battery door dosent stay on, battery life is less than a few hours even when its in sleep/standby. Plus I might be able to watch maybe 30 minutes on video on wifi before its screaming to be charged up. I've tried custom roms but that didn't seem to help at all. And it has taken me minutes to type this because the keyboard is super laggy. Here's hoping to atleast some clue that this phone exists and it's actually coming soon.

Did she know anything about pricing? I assume it'll be $299.99.

My two local stores, as well as the 800 number know nothing about it, but that doesn't surprise me.

I called my local store though I'm not sure if it was someone local who I spoke to. I selected sales so it could have been a call center. She knew nothing about the Fighter and said if they haven't been trained on it they don't know anything. I'm not sure I want to wait that long on a rumor. Is there anything available that compares the Razr Maxx to the rumored Fighter specs?

Probably either wrong info from the store or the poster is a troll.

Most likely the phone won't even be called the "Fighter", so the store never would have referenced it as such.

Yes, can be both. I asked my local Motorola store, they even can not distinguish between GPS and GLONASS. I asked about the GLONASS on the RAZR and they answered me that "you have to pay for that service". LOL.. some stores are not really technically competence. they are just business people so no wonder they make mistake.

I can't speak to all your problems but your battery problems are most like a wornout battery. Lithum-ion batteries are only good for approximately 500 chargings. If you got your "X" anywhere near it's original launce date, you battery has seen lots of chargings.

Best of luck,

While I agree that most reps aren't technically savvy, GPS vs. GLONASS is hardly a softball question. BUT, they shouldn't have tried to cover that up with a silly "you got to pay for dat" response. I only rely on their knowledge with Verizon-specific things, like contracts and prices.

Back to the topic at hand. Anyone remember how much info on the Razr leaked before it's official announcement? I wonder if the lack of info means it's a long way off, doesn't even exist, or Moto has got better (or always was good) at leak control??

I just replaced my launch-day X's battery. The original was clearly swollen in the center. I didn't realize how bad until I compared it to the new one.

Me too. I didn't notice that my original was swollen, the charge on mine would fall off fast after it hit about 50%. The new one from Amazon stays strong all the way down the low battery warning.

Not sure about the Razr, but I was looking back at the early DX threads, and they started in March with the launch in July. I think the official announcement of the DX was in late June. I am guessing a possible similar plan for the Fighter/HD?

You are all dreaming if you think the Fighter/HD will be released in June.

Look at the Inc4g thread. That phone appears to be way further along (way more leaks, exact specs known, webpages, pictures, etc.) and no one has any clue when that will be released yet.

The speculation of a Septemper release date is prolly a better guestimate. As I did go with the Maxx after that whole "you're gonna lose your unlimited data unless you upgrade nao zomgwtfbbq" fiasco, I'm still gonna watch for the fighter. Can't wait to see how beautiful it is

So, what's your overall opinion of the Maxx so far? I saw a friend's and was impressed but I still feel that I should take another look before committing.

I think I've given up on the Fighter.



Now it's SG3 for me or else I'm moving to Sprint for the new EVO.


I wish they'd hurry up and let us know when the new family shared data plans go into effect. I'm planning on renewing my contract the day before it starts and then just exchanging my phone at Costco once the SG3 comes out.

Yeah I got my X on the launch date. Was my first smartphone and I followed the news since it was first leaked as the shadow. But no reason in buying a battery for it when I will be upgrading whenever the announce the shared data plans. Ad for the battery cover its from my original X that I bricked trying to root it so that's why it wont stay on but ut really just a minor annoyance.

A senior member here recently posted their report of a personal conversation with a VZW rep that contradicted everything else out there and the response was "He was just passing on what he heard. No harm in that..." Shouldn't that also apply here?

As far as the Droid Fighter name, hasn't that been seen in a supposed internal VZW document (http://www.bgr.com/2012/02/23/droid-fighter-and-lg-cayman-heading-to-verizon-according-to-leak/) and might the internal document referenced here then also use that name even if it ends up not being the name used for the public?

I don't think the potential impact of the Google-Motorola relationship and especially the pending ITC exclusion order regarding Motorola Mobility products stemming from the Microsoft claims has been mentioned. While MMI may say that these are not affecting anything, Motorola may be tightly controlling information regarding new devices that could potentially affect or be affected by those situations. This also may touch on the comment regarding the Incredible 4G as that release may have already been affected by a similar exclusion on HTC devices that has apparently dragged on much longer than expected. Unless someone similarly goes after Samsung, the Galaxy S3 may be the next major VZW phone release by default.

For many, whether it is June or September probably does not matter as much as knowing whether a release would be before or after it would affect existing unlimited data plans. I do not want to wait some time, in my case with an increasingly problematic DX, only to eventually find out that it will not be possible to wait until the the Droid Fighter/Razr HD release without also losing unlimited data.

this. I've been eligible for an upgrade since early april on my droid x and the only reason I haven't done it is this phone. Now its going to be a waiting game. Either I get the maxx (at cheaper than I would have paid. Can't complain there) or hopefully the fighter comes out before these new data plans show up.

I have a feeling this phone is going to be saved to go up against the iphone in the fall. Its starting to get that Bionic vibe. Hopefully they don't have a razr right behind it...

Seems very plausible. It certainly doesn't appear to be around the corner

This Galaxy Nexus is growing more frustrating by the day. I'm seriously considering re-activating my Thunderbolt until Maxx HD or equivalent releases.

What stands out to me is that all of the current Verizon Android and 4G models are several months old and have dropped to $199.99 or less, leaving VZW without any of the usual $299.99 with two year commitment 'flagship' Android and/or 4G smartphones That would usually suggest the imminent release of one or more new 'flagship' phones, yet there seem to no well supported upcoming releases, just all sorts of rumors.

At the same time, you have many coming off their 2 year commitments from the original Droid X release, a group that is greatly likely to be looking to upgrade to the latest technology.

Put those together and one would think there would have been a new flasgship Android 4G phone already released, which makes me wonder if VZW planned to have released the Droid Incredible 4G but those plans were upset by the ITC exclusion order against HTC. If so, then since the underlying Intellectual Property issue was apparently addressed that device might be released as soon as the customs side gets resolved.

If that is the case then it could be that the release of the Galaxy S3 and Droid Fighter/Razr HD will be tied to promoting the new data plans and/or countering the iPhone5 release. Unfortunately, that would likely make those releases after the data plan changes and it being possible to get a subsidized upgrade without losing unlimited data.

I really hope I'm wrong and the Droid Fighter is released or at least a release date identified soon, but I'm not sure that I can or want to deal with a buggy DX until as late as possibly some time in September with the risk of then either losing unlimited data or ending up with the same Droid Razr MAXX at the same price that I could get now. So I may wait a week or two with the hopes that something changes or is clarified by then, but can't justify waiting indefinitely.

Actually, anybody who got the Droid X at launch has been eligible to upgrade since March.

I'm waiting to see what the new plans are before I decide. I REALLY want the Fighter/HD. Thus far, even though I stream a lot of music , I could live with a capped plan. My concern is the video apps coming down the line. If I give up unlimited - I can never get it back.

Decisions, decisions.

Today is Memorial Day. Remember all the vets who have served, and those that are currently serving, so that we can have these discussions!!

Still holding out some hope this will turn out to be wrong, but I am getting more and more of a sense that the Razr HD release will occur in conjunction with or after the new shared data plans going into effect.

Apparently, you like you Thunderbolt more than I do mine. The One X doesn't do much forme. Nor does the SGIII.

The only Moto I had was the "Q", my gripes were mostly with WinMo, not Moto. My wife has a Maxx - I want the Fighter. I am waiting to hear what the new plans are - then I'll decide. Right now, I have unlimited data - but - even thought I stream MUSIC like 2 hours a day on work days - could survive a cap. My concern is IF I Give it up - it's NEVER coming back. Gotta think that things will get more (rather than less) data-intensive.
