Droid RAZR Maxx could steal the limelight in the Motorola booth. Expect it to continue the thin tradition re-booted with the launch of the Droid RAZR in Q4 '11.
The curvaceous Nexus is the first to run Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Think of it as Android all grown up. Refined, slick and pretty are not words you'd normally associate with Google's market leading OS.
If Android is trying to differentiate itself from Apple's iOS and the iPhone, this is probably not the ideal approach. Legions of us Android pioneers are coming off 2-year contracts, and would at least appreciate a warm hug.
"you can keep your unlimited data even if you get a 4g phone" "nope, my wife just upgraded to a Samsung stratosphere and couldn't keep her unlimited plan." Clear as mud.
Xyboards are rebadged Xooms. Who's fooling whom? I didn't work the first time, what makes Motorola think it'll work again, especially with the likes of the awesome Asus Transformer Prime?
For those coming off 2-year old contracts, mostly from the original Motorola Droid (November 2009), it's another hilariously frustrating (yet entertaining) episode in the will the Nexus ever launch mini-series.
Frustration levels mounting, many have told us that they've already jumped the gun and purchased either an HTC Rezound or Motorola Droid RAZR. Both respectable, and well reviewed devices. Neither, however, ship with Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
