It's raining Android leaks! After checking out both the HTC Vigor's wallpapers and photos of the Motorola XOOM 2 last night, images and details of a device codenamed the Motorola Spyder have emerged. According to a source speaking with This is my next, the Spyder will come to market under the name "DROID RAZR," combining two of the most well-known brands in mobile. The tipster didn't mention which carrier the Spyder/DROID RAZR could be headed for, but since it features the "DROID" name, a launch on Verizon is pretty much a lock. Oh, and if the handset looks familiar, that's because it should: the same source believes that the DROID RAZR is "almost certainly" the DROID HD that popped up last month, a claim that lines up with rumors we've heard in the past.

So now that we've got all of the naming details out of the way, how about we dive into the specs? The DROID RAZR feature that's sure to make the hearts of more than a few Android fans skip a bit is its display, which will reportedly be of the 4.3-inch 960x540 qHD Super AMOLED variety. Other details include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera, 1080p video capture, an "HD" camera around front, 1GB RAM, Webtop support, and 4G LTE connectivity all wrapped in a body that reportedly features Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar casing with splash-resistant coating.

Sounds like a pretty nice little hunk of technology, no? The bad news here is that, even with all of these spec and naming details, there's not really much info on when the DROID RAZR might hit the market or how much it'll cost when it does. One of This is my next's sources claims that it could be ready in time for the holidays, but that's about all we've got to go on for now. All I know is that I'll be adding this sucker to my wish list right away. Anyone out there planning to do the same?
