    Read this article on Moto's Site & just glanced over the Ice Cream Sandwich details & phone list & came across something odd. They mention the Droid Razr of course getting the update but after that they mention the Moto Razr...as in the original Razr? I assumed the Droid Razr was the only one in the lineup of Razr badged phones that ran Android. Am I wrong?

    Yeah that appears to be a typo, as it's not listed and definitely won't run on the original POS razr =)

    Somebody already cracked into onto an old droid. Super slow, no wifi, and the apps are sluggish as hell.

    Well I may have gotten to the bottom of it, I went to the Motodev website & noticed they had one labeled just Razr (XT910) & one labeled Droid Razr (XT912). Looked exactly the same except for the Radio band & Data band specs on the Droid Razr have alot more frequencies than the XT910. Also the Droid version is EvDo & other version is EDGE/HSDPA/HSUPA. Looks like one is US & other is a European version.

    We know there will be other RAZR's out (RAZRMAXX and I'm sure more to come), so I don't doubt that Motorola employees are already referring to our unit as the Original RAZR.
