It typically takes a while for the project to update to newer versions of Android, since development is largely done by maintainers in their spare time.

Motorola XOOM 2 Ad Confirms Honeycomb And Pre-Christmas Launch, Will Likely Retail For $400

Rumor: Motorola DROID HD/Spyder To Be Released As The DROID RAZR, Infused With A qHD Super AMOLED Display

Yes, that's the name of the phone that in 2004 saved Motorola from bankruptcy (before it plunged into the profitless dregs of mobile society a second time, that is).

The name change is accompanied by a full list of specs, but first let's take a look at the handset itself and see what the hype is all about:
