    I am making my first Droid purchase this month, so I am new to monitoring this rumor mill. However: I went to Best Buy to look at a Razr Maxx in person before I buy from Amazon, as I am debating between Maxx now or wait for the Fighter/equivalent. Best Buy in Alexandria, VA (Potomac Yard) had no Maxx phones in stock and zero replacements are being sent out to the store. They had the dummy model on display but its price tag/etc had already been removed.

    Is that normal?

    Sounds a bit odd and makes me wonder if Best Buy is phasing out the Maxx in anticipation of the Fighter. VZW online still has Maxx in stock though.

    The lack of any news on the Fighter makes me think that is more of a refresh of the Maxx than a completely new device (which would generate a lot more heat, leaks and news).

    Maybe our Verizon employee ghost88 can provide some info.

    the Razr Maxx is a Special Order at most stores. Usually Takes 2 days for it to be shipped to a store if Customer really wants it. ;)

    Nothing yet on Fighter.. No training manuals or dummy displays.
    Maybe well see something on Monday.

    To clarify, this Best Buy employee said that he could not special order it. He checked the computer system for me and said that it was no longer available.

    He may have simply been wrong, of course, but that's what he said he saw in the system. I'll check another store in the area later, perhaps.

    I had to work today =/, and the MaXX is still a special order.

    BestBuy is either out of stock or they just didnt want to go through the hazzle of ordering you one.

    I am hoping to hear something soon. A higher resolution screen with moto radios would be great

    Yea, I hoping it's true, but I'm not getting goods feeling regarding the 4/12 release of the Fighter.

    We'll know for sure a a few days.....

    Been following the news with you guys on here, so I thought I should post.

    I have a buddy that works at Verizon as a sales Rep. I told him I was looking into getting the Maxx until I heard about this phone. He hasn't heard about any phones being released soon so he checked with his manager who confirmed nothing has been announced to the stores just yet.

    I'm betting, since verizon likes to push back launch days, we will hear more information about it on the 12th, but not an actual release day for the stores. Aren't there usually commercials out before the phones are released? Hopefully we hear something soon, I have the Droid 1 and desperately need an upgrade :p

    There's an update on another site that shows a June release date. It had some interesting details in the specs section that was more complete than before. I'm too new to publish links yet, but if I could, it would look like this:
    pdadb/index.php?m=specs&id=3446&c=motorola_droid_fighter

    but would have .net following pdadb. What's interesting for me is that is shows an analog radio receiver. Maybe no one else cares, but it's an important feature for me. I'm a runner and not one phone I have tried can maintain a data connection for a complete run, so the FM simulator apps are worthless.

    I wonder where they got the June release date from?

    It is prolly just speculation since nothing has been said about it yet and its almost the 12th. I have yet to see a site besides that one that says a different release date than april 12th.

    I have waited with my upgrade for something I could really get excited about. I passed on the nexus and the raz. I really hope this phone will by my huckleberry. While I love my Droid X its def time to enter the multiple processor world for me.

    So, according to pdadb.(net)/index.php?m=specs&id=3379&c=motorola_atrix_3_mb886 , the motorola phone that's coming out in April is the Atrix 3, NOT the Fighter. Conveniently, however, it's using the same picture (which is a Droid form-factor), so I doubt that is very accurate.

    My bet is that the Fighter is either coming out on April 12th, or it's going to be announced then(or announced that it's been pushed back, as someone already mentioned :( ). According to the dates on the initial screenshot leak, the phones were all released within 1-3 days of then, so let's hope for this week!

    To access the page, remove the ( ) around .net. Can't post outside links yet :(

    I'm like 99% sure that the Fighter will not be released on the 12th.

    We still haven't seen anything in eRoes or any kind of training related to the device.
    No display Dummy yet.

    I open tomorrow, so I will inform you guys when I know something.

    I still stand by what I posted. Verizon employees need to be able to train on the devices so they should know when stuff is coming out and they havent never heard of anything coming out soon. I'm hoping we will hear something by the end of the week.

    Verizon didn't get the Atrix or Atrix 2. Why would they get the Atrix 3?
  20. Sarrith

    Sarrith Well-Known Member

    I thought the Atrix was part of AT&T, but I wouldnt trust my answer :p. I just know I haven't heard of any Atrix at verizon.

    jt122333221 New Member


    You're correct, the Atrix is an AT&T phone.



    They wouldn't - it's an AT&T Phone, I just thought it was worth mentioning becuase it's the same release area as the Fighter. That's the information that PDAdb.net had, so I just passed it along. I thought it was interesting that the Fighter was rumoured to be released in April, and now, it's not (according to this website) going to be out until June while the Atrix is estimated for April.

    If PDAdb.net says that I don't think we can hold the information specs it says about the moto fighter credible.

    ylexot Well-Known Member

    Well, I guess we only have to wait until tomorrow to find out if it gets released. Right now, I seriously doubt it. I don't think VZW would release a new Droid flagship phone with zero hype beforehand.

    With a new upgrade fee starting on April 22nd.. I would not be surprised if the phone does not come out until after that.
  25. ylexot

    ylexot Well-Known Member

    I agree, but if they are going to do that, they need to start releasing a lot of information about the phone right now! Otherwise, people will upgrade now to avoid the fee since there is nothing for people to hold out for.
