    The Droid Razr is set to be launched in November, but already the device has been spotted in the wild. The Droid Razr, the latest Android smartphone from Motorola, is not suppose to be launched for a few more weeks, but someone shared a picture.

    Talking to my Verizon contact, he said he should be getting this device sometime next week and that means the rumored October launch date might actually be true. Regardless, I am sure many of you guys are excited for this new device --I know I am.

    Hahaha funny thing is, this phone reminds me of the DX2 and the Droid Charge mixed together. I actually have both side by side as I type...might have to manuver a way to get rid of these two phones and get this one. Does look very impressive. The battery thing scares me but hey, what does this mean for replacements...obviously has to be replaced with the un-removable battery as well as it doesnt come out? Just my $0.02.

    Sleek looking device, but I personally would've preferred the Motorola logo on the black background of the phone instead of that silver, would've more clean imo.

    The outside looks so good! :) Then you see the blur on the inside. Then you realize you can't look at the physical inside because the back doesn't come off. ;)
    Looks good on the outside kids, but don't judge a phone by the cover! ;)

    I have to say in my opinion the razr looks alot better outside than the nexus. Thinner and with the Kevlar and gorilla glass just makes it look great! I wish it had ics though this will b a tough decision when I go to Verizon to check them both out! Idk what im gonna do!

    Right now I'm going with the Nexus. Obviously I have to see them both in person. But ICS and that giant screen are pretty attractive and the curves!

    Hump (cosmetic fail) + Blur (software fail) + Motorola (fail in general recently) = No thanks.

    I like Moto + I _like_ the hump but... I still don't like blur! ;)
    Blur can be fixed! Non removable battery can't... ;)

    I really like the Razr. The non-removable battery means nothing to me. I need to compare the Razr and GN cameras side by side.

    Why is this the first I hear of the "non-removable battery"? Is this part of the "splashproof" design?

    You can't get a phone that thin and have a removable battery. Also it's meant to be waterproof.

    Yeah I dont like it. To much going on. Different colors and textures, cropped corners. Its way to busy. Ill go with the Nexus.

    I actually love the design on this phone. It's so sleek and sexy looking. I don't mind the unremovable battery as it is for splash protection.

    if it came out designed for ICS w/o the capactive buttons and all that, i'd prob be leaning toward the RAZR. however, im just not sure how it will work/look once ICS is on it, if those buttons will just be a waste of space or what. I'll compare the nexus and razr side by side but i think ultimately the nexus will be my choice.

    I really love replaceable batteries,it's a brilliant design feature. I have one at home and one a work in chargers topped off. I can use the heck out of my phone and not worry.

    That being said I have nifty USB rechargeable battery that is very convenient. I am concerned about Blur, never used it but many people complain about it.
    I was going to wait for the Nexus but my OG is dying rapidly.

    My OG keeps telling me incessantly that it's out of memory and I can't receive any more text messages (for the last 3 weeks, lol). I've cleared everything I can out of the phone's physical memory that I don't use constantly and I'm still out of space. It knows it's on it's way out and it's throwing a fit. I'm in the same boat; unless there's an announcement about a pre-order or release date on the G-Nex before Thursday I'm pre-ordering one of these.
