Verizon launches Motorola Droid 4, Droid Razr Maxx, BlackBerry Curve 9370

Continuing the list of announcements from CES 2012 (which includes the LG Spectrum and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE), Verizon has unveiled two new Motorola Droid handsets, as well as a relatively new BlackBerry smartphone.

As expected, the new Droids are the Motorola Droid 4 and the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.

Presented as “the thinnest and most powerful 4G LTE QWERTY smartphone”, the Droid 4 is not at all a mystery to us, as we’ve already seen what it has to offer quite a few times until now. Verizon says the Droid 4 will be released “in the coming weeks”, so that rumored February 2 launch date could be accurate. There’s no official word on the price, but it’s probably going to be $299.99 on contract.

As for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, this is essentially a thicker Droid Razr (8.99 mm), because it accommodates a larger battery which “lets customers talk on the phone for more than 21 hours straight on a single charge.” Well, that certainly is a bold statement.

Like the Droid 4, the Droid Razr Maxx (pictured below) will be out in the coming weeks. It will cost $299.99 on contract.

The original Droid Razr will get a color refresh: purple – in addition to the black and white versions that are already available. All three versions will cost $199.99 on contract – presumably only after the Droid 4 and Droid Razr Maxx are launched (since right now the black and white Razrs are still $299.99).

Another Droid-related bit of news from Verizon: the Droid 4, Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx and the Droid Xyboard tablets will all be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich sometime later this year.

Android devices aside, the largest US mobile carrier has also announced the BlackBerry Curve 9370 (which was initially supposed to arrive in November).

The Curve 9370 will be available online and in Verizon stores starting January 19. It will cost $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate (on contract, of course), featuring a 2.44 inch display with 480 x 360 pixels, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, 800MHz processor, a 5MP rear camera with flash, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed. The 9370 currently runs BlackBerry OS 7, but it will be updated to the new BlackBerry OS 7.1, alongside the Bold 9930 and the Torch 9850.
