A couple of new images of both the internally-named Motorola Spyder, rumored to be the device Moto and Big Red have planned to announce as the Droid RAZR on October 18th, as well as the 8.2-inch variant of the XOOM 2 have surfaced. While we've already seen rough prototype shots of both XOOM 2 variants once before, this new leak shows a much more polished look on the little brother, suggesting that it's near completion and most of the kinks have been worked out.

The Spyder is now donning Verizon logos on the front and back, as well as a 4G LTE logo. According the the tipster that sent these images to Engadget, the Spyder is packed with a 1.5GHz processor, although it will be released with a clock speed of 1.2GHz. No worries though, I'm sure the boys over at XDA or RootzWiki will take care of that little issue so we can unleash the full power of this beasty shortly after it hits the market.

    Why are people acting like the RAZR is any sort of competitor to the Prime?

    The bezel is disgusting, it looks like fingerprint happy gaudy plastic, a small, recessed screen, Gingerbread with a disgusting google search widget, single core processor.

    seriously, what am I missing?

      Um... I doubt the RAZR is single-core. No newly-released phones are. I think the last one was the Droid Charge.

      I have had a good run with Motorola phones. It is likely neither my DROID 3 or DROID BIONIC will see ICS anytime soon, because Moto will figure out how to Blur it first, but they should receive ICS, they have the requisite power, and they're only a couple months old. My XOOM will probably get it very quickly since it was the Honeycomb reference device.

      Personally, I give some extra stock to Motorola devices, I know they aren't popular with a lot of people, but I think they are the best built of any of the Android phones I've seen.

        Call me in 6 months. Ill be the Guy with ICS and I guarantee the Raze and Xoom will not. Hows that 4g coming?
