Droid RAZR HD & Droid RAZR MAXX HD Release Dates Facing Delays?

Ever since Motorola announced that the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD would be arriving before the holiday season, we imagined that they would be out before Thanksgiving in November. However, a new report claims that Motorola and Verizon might be postponing their release dates beyond that time frame.

According to PhoneArena, Motorola and Verizon may have pushed back the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD release dates beyond Thanksgiving and Black Friday. They are apparently still working and likely still hopeful that the devices will indeed make it out before those dates but at this point, it’s apparently up the air.

The reason is supposedly due to an issue with the antenna on the devices. Evidently, the size and location of the antennas are causing problems and because they make contact with the outside edges of the device, the signal suffers over time when they are touched.

The Droid RAZR MAXX and RAZR MAXX HD may see a release beyond Thanksgiving.


Motorola and Verizon have not yet said anything about a possible delay which means that this should be taken with a grain of salt until November passes without a release. Previously, we had heard that the devices would be out in October though that, like this, was just a rumor.

Both devices are highly anticipated amongst not only fans of Motorola but also those in the Android community as they bring the solid RAZR design as well as HD displays. The Droid RAZR MAXX HD also brings a massive battery that will allow users to eat up 21 hours of continuous talk time or 8 hours when browsing the web using 4G LTE.

The Droid RAZR HD also has a massive 2,500 mAh battery as well.

With the iPhone 5 already out on shelves and the Galaxy Note 2 and a new Nexus likely to hit the U.S. later this year, Motorola and Verizon have little time to waste in getting these phones out to the public.

However, if history is any indication, see the Droid Bionic, it’s entirely possible that we could see a delay.


Could you wait past Thanksgiving for these devices to launch?
