Motorola's "On Display" press conference

Motorola and Verizon are putting new phones "On Display" at a press conference in New York

  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:34:30 PM
    These three products, no surprise, are exclusive to Verizon.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:35:06 PM
    In 2009, we came together with Motorola to join forces on network and technology. We wanted to do more than introduce another phone.

  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:35:21 PM
    We wanted to create a recognizable brand, which is Droid, Erwin says.
  • sarahtew 9/5/2012 6:35:24 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:35:55 PM
    Three years later, the Droid franchise is defined as Android to people in the U.S. Recognized as products with powerful processors, innovations, strong designs, Erwin says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:36:04 PM
    Each Droid comes standard with a mobile hotspot, she notes.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:36:33 PM
    There's a lot said about what 4G is, Erwin says.
  • Kent German 9/5/2012 6:36:34 PM
    Erwin is emphasizing that Droid is a premier brand for Android. I guess that includes Droid devices not made by Motorola.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:36:48 PM
    Verizon's customers have transitioned from 3G to powerful 4G network, she says.
  • sarahtew 9/5/2012 6:37:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:37:13 PM
    Verizon's LTE network covers 75% of the country, giving it some advantages over its rivals.
  • MattC 9/5/2012 6:37:39 PM
    Can you imagine how much market could Motorola get if they released these phones on all the networks?
  • sarahtew 9/5/2012 6:37:49 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:38:43 PM
    Droid Razr M is available for preorder at 5 pm ET today.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:38:54 PM
    Customers expect value from us, Erwin says.
  • Kent German 9/5/2012 6:39:06 PM
    Erwin says Verizon's new pricing plans will let customers take the power of a device and turn it into a Wi-Fi hot spot and share data.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:39:24 PM
    I wonder which phone Verizon will push harder: these Motorola Droid Razrs or the new iPhone? I have to imagine these phones have lower subsidy costs.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:39:37 PM
    Okay, now back to Woodside.
  • Kent German 9/5/2012 6:40:10 PM
    A parting gift!
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:40:21 PM
    Wow, Motorola and Verizon offering Droid Razr M's to everyone in attendance. Bloggers must love that.
  • sarahtew 9/5/2012 6:40:28 PM
  • Kent German 9/5/2012 6:40:29 PM
    And that's a wrap.
  • sarahtew 9/5/2012 6:40:32 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:40:42 PM
    "Welcome to the new Motorola Mobility," Woodside concludes with.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:40:56 PM
    Wow, the walls on the side have receded, and there are booths to show off the phones.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:41:05 PM
    Okay, the event has wrapped up.
  • Roger Cheng 9/5/2012 6:41:11 PM
    I hope you enjoyed the coverage.
