Are these the droids you're looking for?

Google Inc. (GOOG) subsidiary Motorola Mobility today held a special event, looking (perhaps) to capitalize on the market void left by potential handset bans on global market leader and BMOAC (big-man-on-Android's campus) Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930).

Motorola teased three handsets:

Motorola Droid RAZR HD

RAZR HD

Display: 4.7-in 720p (1280x720 pixels)
CPU: 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 4 from Qualcomm, Inc. (QCOM)
OS: Android 4.0.4 "Ice Cream Sandwich"
Camera: 8 megapixels (rear only)
Dimensions: 131.9mm x 67.9 mm x 8.4mm
Storage: microSD
Battery: 2,500 mAh
Extras: NFC
Carrier: Verizon Wireless (a Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) and Vodafone Group Plc. (LON:VOD) joint-subsidiary)
Price: ??
Arrival: "before the holidays"

Motorola Droid RAZR HD

RAZR HD MAXX

(same as above, plus...)
Storage: 32 GB (internal)
Battery: 3,300 mAh (thickness is rises to 9.3 mm)
Arrival: holiday season

Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE

RAZR M

Display: 4.3-in. "qHD" (960x540 pixels)
CPU: 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 4 MSM8960 from Qualcomm
OS: Android 4.0.4 "Ice Cream Sandwich"
RAM: 1 GB DRAM
Cameras: 8 megapixel rear, 0.3 megapixel front
Connectivity: GSM / UMTS / HSPA+/ LTE
Storage: 8 GB (internal) + microSD
Extras: NFC, Kevlar body
Carrier: Verizon Wireless
Price: $99 with new contract
Arrival: holiday season (pre-order starts now)

The new Droid designs feel a bit bland, but to be fair they should come with excellent battery life.  Motorola's current generation Droid MAXX regular tops battery life benchmark charts, thanks to its 3,300 mAh battery.

It works for me. Pop in a newer better OS and a newer 28nm SOC and i'd take it.
