It’s official: Verizon’s Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX will be available on January 26 for $299.99
Verizon’s extended-battery Motorola Droid RAZR, the aptly called RAZR MAXX, was unveiled earlier this month, perhaps causing owners of the original device to be just a little bit upset. Anyway, the new and improved RAZR (and this time apparently actually lasting through a day of use) has been rumored to go on sale on January 26 not once, but twice already. That in itself kind of settled it for us, but today Big Red decided that an official word is in order.
So the carrier announced that the RAZR MAXX will be available this Thursday (yes, January 26) in Verizon stores and online for $299.99 with a new two-year contract.
Aside from the 3,300 mAh battery (which still manages to keep the device under 9 mm thin), there’s nothing new here compared to its even thinner brother. It does however come with 32 GB of storage (16 GB internal and a 16 GB microSD card preinstalled. That’s the same arrangement currently available in the plain RAZR selling for the same $299.99 (a $199.99 version of that phone is now out but comes sans preinstalled microSD card). If the original RAZR won’t see a price cut, at the same price, picking one of these handsets will be all about what you value most – thinness or battery life.
