On the heels of the official announcement of the DROID 4, Motorola and Verizon just announced the DROID RAZR MAXX. This one was originally leaked a month or so ago. It won’t be as thin as the DROID RAZR, but there is a reason. It looks like Motorola is putting a bigger battery in this one. We don’t know the size yet, but it’s going to be 1.8mm thicker and Motorola is promising 21 hours on one charge, which is unheard of for a 4G LTE device. This might be a double plus, because the extra thickness might make this phone feel better in the hands. The DROID RAZR is so thin that sometimes it feels almost too thin. I’m thinking the RAZR MAXX will feel more solid plus the extra battery life is going to be huge. The RAZR MAXX will come with 32GB of memory as well. It will be priced at $299 and no release date was mentioned.
In addition to the RAZR MAXX, we can expect to see the DROID RAZR in purple in the coming weeks. It will join the original black version along with the white one that released last month. It will come with 16GB of memory and will be priced at $199 which is an absolute steal for those that aren’t concerned with battery life. I assume the other variants will see a price drop as well.
Last but not least Motorola also promises updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the DROID RAZR MAXX, DROID RAZR, and both DROID XYBOARD tablets. Unfortunately no timeframe was specified.
