Any word if this has the 4460, or a 4430 at 1.2GHz?
You forget that NFC is required for Google Wallet, as well.
Sorry, my robe does that sometimes!
Say what you will about NFC. It's not just for syncing. Google has a big rollout coming for Google Wallet, and the first few times people see someone wave their phone at the local mall or at the stadium to pay for something I guarantee they'll ask "what's that!?". And, when they see their phone doesn't do it they'll feel the sting of remorse.
i wonder how thin the "hump" is compare to the bionic/dx*.
now i'm torn. gotta wait for the g-nex announcment tonight. if the g-nex is too big for my taste, i might have to go with this since my only complaint with bionic was the pentile and they fixed that. sweet. gotta love choices.
I cautiously say I want this to replace my D1, just like I said I wanted the Bionic. I held out because D1 did what I needed it to, but did it slow. I understand some people couldn't wait because their phones died out and NEEDED a replacement. I probably would have too if my D1 crapped out. I held off on the Bionic because I DID noticed the pixelation on the screen and I expected more from the camera. RAZR looks and sounds really good. But again, I'll wait for user reviews before I retire my D1. Besides, I'll be out of the country for most of Nov. Just my thoughts.
Yea, I had the GB leak first week of April. Quite a while before the OTA finally came!
Love to see the locked bootloader again :angry:

I agree my statement did come off as "keep up-ish". The main reason I'm looking for an NFC capable phone is that I think it would be cool to keep $100-$200 of "walking money" on my phone to use when out and about town. There are several other uses for NFC besides syncing and purchases. There is a good possibility that NFC would allow for some additional really cool features, and I'd like to take advantage of them without having to buy a phone before my contract is up.
It's not about what NFC does for you RIGHT NOW, but rather what it will/could do in a short 6-12 months from now. I honestly think NFC will be a "must have" future hardware with more of an impact than, let's say, front facing cameras.
Per VZW.. bad sign.
Already some benchmark by Anand. Very good so far!

I MUST OWN IT. Hopefully will be able to root it so i can get my wifi tether shortly after the phone comes out haha.
not to be random but Motorola Droid RAZR unveiled: LTE, 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, available November for $299 -- Engadget Engadget thinks the processor is a Ti Omap 4430. What the rumors say about the nexus is that its a 4460. Which would mean nexus has a leg up. Im not sure if thats just Engadget applying rumor to official spec to be more specific but i cannot find any other sights confirming the processor and the official release doesn't say. The signifigance of that is OMAP™ 4 Platform - OMAP4430/OMAP4460
OMAP™ 4 Key Benefits
Designed to drive smartphones, tablets and other multimedia-rich mobile devices
IVA 3 hardware accelerators enable full HD 1080p, multi-standard video encode/decode

Integrated POWERVR™ SGX540 graphics accelerator drives 3D gaming and 3D user interfaces
Highly optimized mobile applications platform
OMAP4430 operates at up to 1 GHz
OMAP4460 operates at up to 1.5 GHz
Motorola would be overclocking a processor designed for 1ghz....the nexus which is rumored at 4460 will be designed at 1.5 and under clocked. Sorry to get in the nitty gritty but im a nerd like that. I bet the processor for the razr is 4460 though... if i had to ignore engadgets post.
**Also to the people saying this is basically the bionic in a different shell, if it does have the 4460 then come-on how many differences are you going to throw out to say that? The bionic has a 4430.
