The Motorola Droid RAZR HD made a brief, fleeting appearance on YouTube yesterday, and for a brief period of time, people were able to see the vaunted Verizon Wireless smartphone in action while learning how to operate it. The phone had the Verizon logo at the bottom, giving it an added air of legitimacy, but the five featured videos were removed almost instantly, perhaps due to security concerns. If you’re looking to do some catching up and view the videos yourself, hoping against hope that someone else re-uploaded them, then you’re in luck. It turns out that the videos have just been re-uploaded by the YouTube member himself.
The person who uploaded the video is one Paul Revowii, 26 years old and, quite notably, a brand new YouTube member who had just registered yesterday. Apparently, the less descriptive codename of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD is “XT926”, and the videos show a Verizon phone that could be Big Red’s own twist on the AT&T Motorola Atrix HD. Like the latter device, there isn’t any sign of any physical buttons in front, and both Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and 4.1 Jelly Bean buttons will be supported. The five videos on Revowii’s YouTube account include tutorials on how to set up your email, how to set up your Wi-Fi and a general tutorial on how to use the device.
The Motorola Droid RAZR HD is expected to be unveiled on September 5, a week ahead of the possible announcement revealing the Apple iPhone 5. Some of the phone’s other rumored features include a 4.3-inch HD touchscreen, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front camera and 2,500 mAh battery. The 4G LTE device will reportedly be shipping with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with an upgrade to Jelly Bean expected to follow soon.
