Motorola Falling Into The RAZR Trap Once Again?

  • October 2, 2011 8:07 pm


The big news tonight: The unannounced Motorola DROID HD has been found in VZW’s device manager proving the device is coming sooner rather than later. Specs include a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and a 4.3″ Super AMOLED display. Sound awesome?

To us it sounds like more of the same. The Bionic, DROID X2, DROID HD — they’re all pretty similar. Motorola is starting to go through the same motions that almost sank them a few short years ago…


While the X2 lacks LTE the three aforementioned phones are more or less identical. The specs for the HD, however, prove one thing — Motorola is falling into the same trap as they did in the past with the popular RAZR phone and every device released thereafter for over a year. Motorola finds one thing that works well and then flogs the idea/beats the horse until long after it’s dead.

With the rumored Motorola RAZR branding said to be making a comeback, it only reiterates this point. Releasing a smattering of Android devices with nearly identical specs save for a few different design changes isn’t going to work well for very long. Motorola’s phones are getting boring really fast. Are we heading for a RAZR debacle part II?
