Verizon updates: Pre-order Droid Razr, receive updates about Galaxy Nexus

Verizon users up for renewal, you have a tough choice on your hands. Do you want the incredibly thin Motorola Droid Razr with its 12.5 hour battery life or the not-quite-as-thin Samsung Galaxy Nexus with its massive screen and the brand new Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system? Today, you have a choice. Pre-order the Droid Razr or sign up for updates on the Galaxy Nexus. Both 4G LTE phones will likely cost $300 with a two-year contract and both will probably be released around Nov. 10.


The signup page for the Galaxy Nexus has gone live. You can now sign up for an email alert. Some bloggers believe that the URL (which has an 11 and a 10) on the signup page indicates a Nov. 10th launch, but we aren’t sure yet.


The pre-order page for the Droid Razr is a bit more definitive. It promises that the phone will be released no later than Nov. 10. 

So which one should you get? Well, that’s a tough one. We compared the hardware specs of both phones and have held the Razr, but we haven’t yet had any hands-on time with the Galaxy Nexus. Be sure to check out our hardware overview video and Smart Actions & MotoCast demo to learn more about the Droid Razr. As for GalNex, everything we know is here.

Which phone, if either, are you leaning toward?
