It’s been nearly a year since we spoke with Stephen Elop in New York City for the launch of the Lumia 800, a year that hasn’t exactly been full of success on the financials front. But, forget all that, because the new devices are here!

Greetings from a rainy, humid New York City. We’re here live at Motorola’s On Display event where we expect to see the unveiling of several new devices, including the long-in-gestation Motorola Droid RAZR HD. The “display” theme certainly fits if that’s the case, but nothing will be confirmed until 2PM EDT when Motorola kicks things off. It looks like we’ll be treated to a bit of live music with a drum set, guitar, and synthesizers currently setup on stage.

The Facebook Camera just scored a nice little update in the iTunes app store. Now the filter-equipped shooter will let you pick and choose which folders to upload your pics to — something that probably should have been included in version one. It also brings notifications to the party, letting you keep track of when friends comment, tag or like a photo. It’s actually not bad for a measly .1 update.
