I’m heading to New York Tuesday morning for the big unveil of Motorola’s next whatsit. The company has put out a teaser that makes it look like the star of the show, which begins at noon Eastern time, will be a new phone. The pictured device is being touted as “thinner, faster, stronger, smarter” and has the tech press salivating.
The big question is over what the phone will be called. Some are speculating it’ll be the Droid Razr, which would unite two of Motorola’s most successful brands ever, while others are saying that the teaser itself has identified it as the Spyder. Either way, me likey the cool names.
There’s also speculation that the Xoom 2, the company’s next tablet, might make an appearance. We’ll see soon enough. Follow me on Twitter starting around 11, where I’ll be posting developments, and check back here later in the afternoon for what will hopefully be a more detailed write-up.
For what it’s worth, the fact that Canadian journalists are being invited to the event also bodes well for Canadian availability of whatever Motorola is unveiling.
Here’s that teaser video I mentioned:

* The red annulet or listel remind of the GTI for cars.
* Mace with its larger head as a blunt instrument.
