Call it the DROID HD, call it the DROID RAZR, call it the Spyder or call it whatever else you want… in a few short hours we’ll be calling Motorola’s new smartphone the sleekest new Android phone on the planet. Until tonight, at least. Motorola and Verizon Wireless have teased us with a suggestive video that touts the smartphone as faster, thinner, smarter and stronger, and BGR exclusively reported key specs last week. All that’s left now is an official unveiling and a few tests to see how strong that Kevlar case really is.

Bookmark this link, which will go live shortly before the event begins later this morning, and make sure to head there for our live coverage of Motorola and Verizon’s press conference! Coverage starts at or around 12:00 p.m. EDT / 9:00 a.m. PDT.
