Nexus Prime Vs Motorola Spyder / RAZR: High-end stakes on Verizon

It seems like October is the month to be in terms of new smartphone announcements. We have just had the iPhone 4S reveal last week, followed by Samsung and Google’s delayed announcement of the Nexus Prime. Now we have confirmation of an event being held by perhaps the silent assassins in all of this – Motorola.

This has definitely slipped under the radar since all the Android gossip has been about the upcoming Nexus Prime and when it will finally be available. Now though, Motorola has set a date for an event in New York on October 18th at 12pm, in which the company will be unveiling their latest smartphone, rumored to be the Motorola Spyder, or Droid HD / RAZR as it has also been known by, as reported from Droid-Life.

One thing that is confirmed is that this device will be heading to Verizon, meaning it will surely be a direct competitor to Google and Samsung’s Nexus Prime which is expected to be unveiled at any moment now. As usual though, Motorola are remaining silent on their new toy until their event lands on October 18th. However, they have released a teaser video, which gives a few possible hints on the design and maybe even the final name of the device as well.

If you check out the video below, you’ll see that Motorola drop quite a few hints on the device, most notably the ‘razor’ cutting through objects and the kevlar vest which alligns with previous rumors suggesting that the device would include kevlar material to strengthen its design. On this basis, don’t be suprised if the device actually gets announced as the Motorola RAZR rather than the Spyder, but it’s still up in the air at the moment.

The device will obviously be a 4G LTE device if it’s heading to Verizon, and we’re guessing that a decent dual-core 1.2Ghz mininum processor will come as standard though. Other than that, full specs of the device are still unknown.

So all eyes on Motorola’s announcement on the 18th then, do you believe that this phone will be better than the mighty Nexus Prime or not? It’s a win win situation for Verizon of course, so which handset are you going to opt for, and why?
