Yet another round of Motorola Droid Razr HD prototype-leak rumours has been kicked off by a post to the XDA forums, picked up by Android Headlines. With the phone having passed FCC approvals, it might almost seem that the leaks are a pre-launch marketing campaign by Motorola, with the latest pics showing a 4G logo that …
720 pixel screen?
Is that 32*24 or 36*20? I'm not sure either option is a good choice...
Re: 720 pixel screen?
My very first mobile phone was an Alcatel OneTouch View db, back in 2000. It had a 96 x 64 display(*), so the various (and not all correct: 32x24 is 768 - you meant 30x24) 720-pixel combinations aren't totally out-of-line.

It's the first ever smart phone designed using Minecraft.
I thought it was the RBS logo ... one failure joining another?
Moto designers went to the creative school of Jonathan "Sony-Style" Ive?
I like the back
It looks grippy and easy to hold but then I don't really care what the back of the phone looks like because funnily enough, I'd be looking at the front of it most often.
That said, I won't be replacing my phone for at least another 8 months, so by then it'll probably be painfully obsolete, regardless of how good it is.
"Android fans are still arguing over whether the phone will have a 2500 mAh or 3300 mAh battery"
It's always about the important stuff
«Unfortunately for Motorola, the phone still appears to be broadly-rectangular [sic !],
a shape which we all now know certain corporate residents of Cupertino invented long before Euclid started fooling with geometry.»
Shouldn't that read ««Unfortunately for Motorola, the phone still appears to be broadly rectangular, a shape which we all now know certain corporate residents of Cupertino invented long before Euclid - and Lucy Haeran Koh - started fooling with geometry» ? After all, credit where credit is due....
