Teaser Page Offers Sneak Peek at Motorola Droid RAZR

Motorola is offering a quick glimpse -- well, if your timing is right -- of its new Verizon 4G phone scheduled to debut Wednesday at a media event in New York City. Here's a screen grab of the device as it appeared on the teaser site earlier today.

The new phone -- which may be named either the Droid RAZR, Droid HD, Spyder, or something else -- is a slim and speedy beast predicted to feature a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of memory, and a Kevlar-coated case. It's also expected to run Ice Cream Sandwich, the nickname of the next version of Google's Android mobile OS.

As the photo above shows, Motorola's new phone has Droid-like characteristics, including an ultra-slim case with a bump where the camera and flash are housed. Warning: The teaser image may be obscured by a series of shifting, changing titles when you visit the site.

The page's ad copy reads: "Faster. Thinner. Smarter. Stronger." The anticipation is killing us.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be big days for Android fans worldwide. In addition to the Motorola announcement, Google and Samsung will hold a media event in Hong Kong on October 19 at 9:30 a.m. -- that's 10 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on October 18.

The two companies will likely unveil the long-awaited Samsung Nexus Galaxy Prime phone running Ice Cream Sandwich.

PCWorld will cover the Google/Samsung event remotely.
