Motorola Schedules Event for 10/18, Droid RAZR, Spyder or Xoom RAZR Imminent?
Motorola has sent out invites to a press event on October 18th. This event could be where Motorola announces the Motorola Droid RAZR, Spyder or even a Xoom RAZR tablet.
In the invite, Motorola asks us to , “Join us to celebrate the next big innovation from Motorola Mobility.” The image included teases that we will see something, “Faster. Thinner. Smarter. Stronger.”
Right now we believe the Droid RAZR will have a qHD display, with a 960×540 resolution, but we don’t know if it will be Pentile or not. The first benchmark shows a 1.2GHz TI OMAP4430 processor, but it could possibly show up with a 1.5GHz processor. The naming of this device is all over the map with possibilities ranging from the Motorola Droid RAZR to Motorola Spyder or just Droid HD. The email image includes the name “spyder” in it, which makes us think it is a possibility, but the RAZR name has such a huge brand recognition factor.
Another possibility is that we will see the Xoom RAZR tablet announced at the October 18th event. We saw a pair of Motorola tablets in September that could easily be 10 inch and 8 inch Motorola Xoom RAZR tablets. These devices are reportedly just a bit thicker than the iPhone 4. The smaller 8.2″ tablet may ship with an IR controller so that you can control it with a remote as part of your home entertainment. It may also have a subwoofer built in. We expect both of these devices to have 4G LTE connectivity.
