Videos may hint at upcoming Motorola RAZR HD launch

Videos uploaded to YouTube this past weekend, apparently showing an unreleased Motorola phone called the RAZR HD, had been taken down by Monday, but they were all uploaded again later in the day.

The videos, which could hint at what Motorola plans to announce at an event scheduled for early September, were uploaded to YouTube on Sunday by an account called "revowii." But by Monday, the four videos and the account had been taken down from the site.

But the videos were back up on YouTube later under a different but similarly named account. The new account, "Paul Revowi," was created Monday, and along with the previous four videos, it uploaded a new one too. 

The videos show tutorials for performing simple tasks on the RAZR HD, including tips for saving battery life. They also show the logo of Verizon, which is included in the invitation for the Motorola event set for September.

The invitation -- which says "Motorola. On Display." -- is for an event scheduled for Sept. 5. With the leaked videos hitting the Web on such a close date, many speculate that the RAZR HD could be the big announcement Motorola hoped to reveal at that time.

I've contacted Motorola for confirmation of the videos' validity, but have not yet heard back. We'll update if we do.

For now, though, head on over to YouTube and check out the videos before they're taken down again, as they likely will be.
