Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx Officially Headed to Verizon

By  |  5 Comments

Up until today, the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx had been nothing more than a unicorn that was supposedly headed to Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Turns out, this unicorn is actually a very real smartphone with the Maxx in its name standing for the phone’s extensive battery life.

Verizon is saying that the phone will allow consumers to talk for 21 straight hours on a single charge. That’s pretty darn impressive. Also impressive is the fact that the phone checks in at a mere 8.9mm in thickness.

That’s a little bit thicker than the original Droid RAZR which sports a 7.1mm design.

Other than those little tidbits, the Droid RAZR Maxx will feature 32GB of on-board storage space and the familiar $299.99 price tag that Verizon tacks onto its 4G LTE smartphones.

Just think Droid RAZR with better battery life and a little thicker of a shell and that’s the Droid RAZR Maxx.

Big Red also announced that it will be carrying a purple edition of the original Droid RAZR which will be headed to the carrier’s 4G LTE network for a cheaper, $199 with a new two-year agreement.

Neither device was given a specific release date, only a vague “coming weeks,” and both will feature Android Gingerbread out of the box but will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the future.

    only difference between MAXX and original RAZR is that the MAXX will
    have an updated 720p display. I believe the CPU/GPU will remain the
    same.

    Some people are never happy. I have now had this phone for 4 months and could not be happier. First and formost, the phone, you know the part you talk to other people on, WORKS! Never a dropped call. In the same location where my Incredible and two Blackberies had no bars adn dropped calls continuously, this thing fills them up. To date all apps works as advertised with no crashes. The power saving capability keeps the battery going to bedtime most every day but when it does need a charge, it does so very quickly. The camera could be a bit faster but for still shots, it is totally satisfactory. The video is second to none. Certainly much better than my daughters Iphone 4′s. So stop the complaining and enjoy the technology. If you think Verizon is bad, try AT & T. Boy do you have a surprise coming!
