Hands-on: Motorola Razr HD
News from A Clean Android Experience – Tom’s Hardware Guide:

Motorola’s new Razr is back and better.

Earlier this month, Motorola unveiled three new Razr phones, all running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

While it may seem odd that a company owned by Google isn’t packing its phones with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Motorola is taking a new approach with Android that brings it closer to its parent company.

The first hands-on example of this approach is from a Razr HD, running on Rogers’ LTE network in Canada. In what should please most Android enthusiasts, Motorola has done away with its MotoBlur UI customizations.

Droid, aren’t these the ones you are looking for?

The problem, as noted by reader AMD Pettitte, is that 315 E 15th Street is not an actual address in Manhattan.
