    Dave 99% of the time I feel I agree with you, but I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one. Lets look at the history...
    • Droid - game changer
    • Droid X - different, but a solid difference, awesome device, felt like the Droid's big brother
    • Droid 2 - similar to Droid, but given it was all so new and the D1 was so huge, this is not unacceptable, and a decent bump in specs.
    • Droid X2 - begins to feel like they're milking things a bit... identical skeleton, bump in specs, but buggy as heck.
    • Droid 3 - basically the X2 in a Droid-like shell, with OMAP instead of Tegra
    • Bionic - Droid 3 in a fatter X shell with more RAM and a LTE radio
    • Razr - Bionic with different screen and thinner shell, and Smart Actions (the first truly difference in software so far)
    • Droid 4 - Razr with a keyboard
    • Razr Maxx - Razr with a bigger battery
    • Fighter - bigger Razr with a HD screen (that the int'l Razr had right after the Razr's release here) and slight bump in specs (speculation obviously)
    I'm forgetting one... oh yeah, the Droid Pro. Meh... ;)

    Now, obviously, some of those are not available any more. But just look at the devices since the Bionic. You mean to tell me that the Razr Maxx caters to a different market segment than the Razr? Which one, the one that likes better battery life? :tongue: I kinda get the Droid 4, given the Droid history and the current Razr format. But what segment does the Bionic cater to that the original Razr (and therefore Razr Maxx as well) wouldn't also cater to?

    To say there's no overlap is a bit of an exaggeration imho. I agree choice is great, and I also agree that as long as the consumer does their homework, they should be fine... most of the time. But the original Razr owners probably would've gladly waited a couple more months for the Razr Maxx had they any clue about that. But Moto wanted to push out the thinnest smartphone ever, right after the first dual core LTE phone, right before the thinnest smartphone ever, with a bigger battery... and the other thinnest smartphone ever, with a keyboard slapped onto it. You get the point... ;)

    I will completely agree with that statement. I bought the Razr the first day and had I known that just under a month later they would release the same phone with a better battery I would have waited. There is only so much homework people can do on these things some times and the manufacturers pump out slightly better phones to compete and stay on the "cutting edge". While I am happy technology is always evolving give my wallet six months or so to cool down before something greater comes.

    I just ordered the Maxx this AM to get the better battery and give my wife the Razr and I see this. Now my comfort on this one is this phone looks like it might be a little too big. Like that Note, it looks like a small tablet not a big phone. I love the size of the Razr and always use cases on my phone, and I fear how big that thing will be with an Ottorbox on it. I am 6'5'' with some big hands and I can't imagine that will be comfortable to use or be usable one handed like the Razr is.

    Who knows time will tell. Before the end of the year they will have the Razr Super Maxx HD that will actually talk to you and tell you how gullible you are for buying basically same phone three times in one years time.

    Actually, even though it came out before the Bionic, saying it is more the Bionic would make more sense. It's pretty much EXACTLY the same. I can use Bionic themes and whatnot on my Droid 3. The X2 and Droid 3 were not similar at all upon the D3's release. It's kind of reversed, but still.

    I think Motorola it's going nuts. They need to have SOME time between these releases. It's not like they are releasing devices with big differences. With an exception for the Droid 4. The rest are very much alike. I think the way Motorola is going they are going to saturate the market.

    this would only be a good thing if moto came out with the X2/D3, Bionic, D4, RAZR, Maxx all at once with different price points. Instead they come out with one and another 2 months later, screwing over their customers. Saying "new tech every 2 months is just the way it is" is foolish and ignorant, hearing about future tech all the time is one thing, but releasing incremental upgrades in an area where a user is essentially locked in to a device is horse crap.

    If this is releasing in April, shouldn't there be more information out there on this device?

    I would rather see another Moto device released in July, that has a full HD display and quad core processor. This looks like a simple update to the Razr Maxx. Larger screen and 720 which I think the Maxx should have had in the first place.

    Now_that_would have upset a lot of RAZR owners, me included :)

    There has been a steady erosion of interest in Android handsets and tablets over the past 4 quarters and I believe that too many handsets flooding the market is a big part of the problem. Analytics already show that developers are moving away from Android for this very reason. Something really needs to be done or I believe Android is going to find itself desperately fending off Windows Phone for Market share in the future.
