This fall looks like it will be an incredibly competitive time in the mobile market. With smartphones like the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and tablets like the Microsoft Surface and the rumored iPad Mini coming, consumers will have a plethora of options to choose from. Even Motorola is joining in on the fun, planning to release a Droid RAZR HD sometime in October or November.

The Verizon Droid RAZR HD will be coming with a quad-core processor, microSD card slot, and an eight-megapixel camera. It should also support 4G LTE and come with an NFC chip, according to recent FCC filings.
The display, a main selling point of the Droid RAZR HD, should display 720p, according to numerous rumors.
A Youtube user known as Paul Revowii apparently got his hands on some tutorial videos for the Droid RAZR HD ahead of time and posted them. They show the Droid RAZR HD running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which means that it will take some time for users to get to experience the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean experience.
Despite it being a leaked video, other indicators point to the Droid RAZR HD not having Jelly Bean at its launch. First off, Android updates are notoriously staggered because manufacturers have to individually tailor the open source operating system, and then send it out to carriers for approval and distribution.
If you're a Verizon user, then you know this can take a while. The carrier and Motorola released the Ice Cream Sandwich update to Droid RAZR MAXX consumers months after the supposed release date.
The Motorola Droid RAZR HD will be a great addition in the Android lineup to compete against the Apple iPhone 5. Previous Motorola Droid RAZRs have been bestsellers through Verizon, and if their sales were any indication, Verizon should profit handsomely this fall from both the iPhone 5 and the Droid RAZR HD.
