    We finally have a name for the much talked about Droid RAZR HD that has been making it's rounds across the blogosphere. We also have information on another Motorola device scheduled to drop on AT&T. First up is the Motorola Vanquish (Droid RAZR HD) which will be sold on Verizon. The Vanquish will be the first high definition model in the Droid line-up, packing a beautiful 1280 x 720 pixel display, LTE capabilities and Ice Cream Sandwich. The device is coming to Verizon under the model number XT926, to China as XT922 and XT980, and globally as the XT923 (UMTS) and XT925 (LTE). Other specs and release dates are still unknown at this time.

    Next up is the Motorola Asanti which will be dropping on AT&T's LTE Network. The Asanti will come equipped with a full QWERTY Keyboard and 960 x 540 qHD display. Sound vaguely familiar? If you said Droid 4 that's our thoughts exactly. The handset will hit AT&T's network with the model number XT898, with the XT897 and XT896 designations assigned to other regions.

    So the mysterious Droid RAZR HD has a new name, and the wait for more details begins...

    I would love to be the guy that comes up with these code names/phone names. I know Samsung has their own guy, and that just sounds like a dream job!

    If the HD has the same battery as the maxx I may have to dump the blunderbolt and buy it. If the bootloader is unlocked I will wait in line for it.

    It's worth noting that San Jay was huge into the locked bootloader. With him gone it's possible future devices won't have it as such a problem. Now that he's gone... who knows what the new guy will do.

    contract phone [iphone] (299.99) + non-contract phone [droid "doublemaxx"] ($649.99) - contract phone [iphone] ($400.00) = 299.99+649.99-400 = $549.99

    how exactly is that a good idea? just buy the droid "doublemaxx" on contract for $299.99 and save yourself about $250.00 ;-)

    now that i just saved you $250.00 give me 50% of that - i'll give you my paypal account info :-D

    exactly - i completely understand what he was trying to do. Unfortunately, he still loses hundreds of bucks AND is still locked into a 2 year contract...makes no sense to me. I would understand paying more to stay off contract, but that's not happening in this case. Verizon has figured this scheme out LONG ago and have found ways to discourage users from taking advantage of the system (which I believe is a big reason that the "off-contract" prices are so damn high).

    anyway, back to the topic - this phone seems pretty good on paper - i just have a hard time going to another motorola product after the razr...i won't lie, i'm pretty jealous of the sammy guys having 4,283 roms to choose from lol not to mention there are a lot of nice phones coming out (but that big battery in this phone may be enough to keep me coming back - dammit lol)

    so you are just going to make the $200 and go back to your MAXX for another two years? It sounded like you were going to take that $200 and apply it to the new RAZR HD (at full retail). if you just pocket the $200 and keep your MAXX for the next two years, sure that makes sense, but you're gonna lose if you THEN buy the RAZR HD off-contract at full retail - that's all. You couldn't pay me $200 to keep my RAZR for ANOTHER two years LOL
