Our expectations are always tempered when it comes to the wireless carriers and Black Friday specials as its been a long, long time since I can remember a deal that made my jaw drop. With that in mind, Verizon Wireless’ 2013 Black Friday ad has hit the airwaves thanks to BlackFriday.com but it won’t knock your socks off. Thankfully, it will help those of you looking to pick up a DROID RAZR HD for free or a Motorola DROID Ultra for $99 with a two-year agreement.

Motorola made things official today for two new Droid RAZR’s hitting the United States. Following the introduction of the Droid RAZR M, Verizon announced today that it would get the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD starting Oct. 18. The 4.7-inch devices were unveiled in September at Motorola’s New York City launch event and landed in Canada yesterday, but today we get confirmation on pricing and availability for the U.S. market.
In case you forgot: both devices pack a 4.7-inch HD display, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera, NFC, and 4G LTE. The Razr Maxx HD is identical to the Razr HD—apart from a bigger battery and double the internal storage (32GB). Both will ship with Android 4.0, but a Jelly Bean update is expected in the future. We have all the details in our coverage of the launch event.
As far as pricing goes…the HD will cost you $200 on a two-year contract, while the Maxx HD is $100 more.
The DROID RAZR HD will be available for $199.99 and the DROID RAZR MAXX HD will be $299.99, both with a new two-year contract. The DROID RAZR HD will be available in either Black or White and have 16 GB internal storage. The DROID RAZR MAXX HD will be available in Black and have 32 GB internal storage. The new smartphones will be available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online on Oct. 18. expand full story

Motorola sets ‘big reveal’ for Friday, is it the Droid Razr HD?
Motorola is set to make a “big reveal” this Friday, according to its Facebook post from late last evening. The details of the reveal are scant, but Motorola shared that the device being unveiled rocks 4G LTE. Putting two-and-two together, we think it is more than likely Motorola will reveal the sequel to its Droid Razr (announced at a media event last fall)—the Droid Razr HD. The device is expected to feature Ice Cream Sandwich (sadly, no Jelly Bean), Verizon radios, a badass Kevlar body, and a 2530mAH battery. We will have to wait until the end of the week for the rest of the details.
The Droid Razr HD is also expected to be unveiled overseas and in Canada, but we think a United States announcement is more likely to come first since Motorola teased 4G LTE. Stay tuned. [Facebook]
Update: Cancelled by Motorola.
