Motorola DROID RAZR M HD leaked with details

In this case it's more of a cross-over situation in which AT&T already carries tablets, and is here easing the public into the idea that they're going to be holding larger PC machines with a half-and-half beast like the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, itself a convertible tablet that can also be a notebook when you pick up the right docking accessory.
