Slips it until the 11th to maximize market hype
(Update: confirmed) Verizon may be intentionally holding off launching the Motorola Droid RAZR in stores a day until Friday, November 11. Android Central has posted an internal document showing that the smartphone would get an 11-11-11 11:11 AM arrival. The Verizon pre-release order website, however still shows November 10 as the ship date for pre-orders.
The RAZR is Motorola's first phone with dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP processor and a 4.3-inch, 540x960 Super AMOLED display. It incorporates Kevlar into its body, letting it become the thinnest-ever (0.28 inches) LTE-based 4G phone. The phone is priced at $300 with a contract.
So far, no veteran's group has objected to Verizon using Veteran's Day to kick off the device.
Update: A Spanish-language teaser for the RAZR has popped up in Verizon's YouTube channel with the November 11 date, removing any doubt as to the timing.
