It's official, Motorola has now announced the already leaked Droid RAZR HD. The new flagship device comes with a 4.7-inch HD display and will be powered by Android 4.0 ICS.

According to Schmidt, over 1.3 million Android devices are activated every day, of which 70,000 are Android tablets. That’s an impressive jump over the 1 million figure that Google boasted at Google I/O at the end of June. In other words, activations grew 30% in a little over two months.

Motorola's big press event is about to start, and that means plenty of exciting new Android-related announcements are on their way. One of the devices expected to see the light of day today is a rumored smartphone with edge-to-edge screen. Based on what we've seen so far, we have no evidence that proves that the claim of an edge-to-edge smarpthone is anything more than a rumor. The leak really gave us little to go by, just indicating that it would have no bezel and that it would likely debut under the name RAZR M. With that in mind, we now have a press shot of two upcoming Motorola smartphones, the Droid RAZR M and the Droid RAZR HD.
