Default Droid Razr pre-ordering starting today

The pre-orders on the upcoming Verizon Droid Razr is starting today. I'm more or less decided on getting this phone, but may wait a month or so until Amazon offers up a slightly lower price than this $299 mumbo jumbo. Anyway, looks sweet and I look forward to holding one.

I was excited about this phone till the $299 price tag. Pretty steep. Still, this might be the phone I get since it'll upgrade to 4.0 eventually.

For some reason Verizon thinks that jacking the prices up is fair, yet it is still possible to get some $299 phones at the $199 price. My mom got the Bionic at $199 by trading in her eris.

How does that work? I show up with my Droid 2 and ask to trade? I didn't know I could do that.

Also if you wait about a month usually Amazon offers them at the $199 to $149 range. This is what I'm banking on. I'd sell the Eris on Gazelle.

A co-worker of mine ordered one. Since it was time for his 2-year upgrade, he got it for $249. This will be his first smartphone ever.

No one wants an Eris and they sure as hell wouldn't pay $100 for it. Eris is a piece of crap.

Just get the extend battery, I get well over 14hours per charge with moderate use, and on LTE all the time.

Won't an extended battery both add cost and make the phone thicker?

Is that an extended battery Thunderbolt in your pocket or a small laptop? I'm big time down on this plus size crap... trust me, in a decade they will look back and LAUGH at the size of phones you people are lugging around. Like the 1980's brick phones. Thinner and sleeker with screens to the absolute edge is the wave of the future and the Razr is the first assault of this idea (not that the screen is all the way to the edge or anything, but it IS slim).
