The Motorola Droid Razr HD

Today in New York, Motorola unveiled its updated line of Droid Razr devices, which includes the Droid Razr HD (above) and the Maxx HD.

The former is the slightly thinner of the two. It has a 4.7-inch HD screen (with 1,280x768-pixel resolution) and runs on Android 4.0, though it will be upgradable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean by the end of this year. Both devices can be preordered today and will be available before the holiday season.

Shipping with Android 4.0

The Razr Maxx HD natively runs with Android 4.0, but will be upgradable to 4.1 Jelly Bean, later this year. Though it has the same CPU, 1GB of RAM, and microSD card slot, it has a smaller amount of storage (16GB instead of 32GB) than its Razr counterpart.
