The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (that’s a mouthful) is an updated version of the skinny Droid Razr but with an immensely bumped up battery.
The Razr Maxx variant carries a 3,300mAh battery which is almost double the 1,780mAh capacity found in the Droid Razr. With such a large battery, our dream for all day continuous use will become true. The company estimates the Maxx’s talk time at 21 hours compared to 12.5 hours of the original Razr. Surprisingly the new battery doesn’t add too much girth to the device, which is still just 8.9 mm thick against the original’s 7.1mm.
The 4G LTE Droid Razr Maxx with 32GB of built-in storage will join the rest of Verizon’s line-up, for a price of $299 with a two year commitment, in the coming weeks. It will initially launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread though the press release promises an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.

DROID RAZR MAXX is designed for customers who spend their days and nights multi-tasking. This smartphone is a marathon runner with enough endurance to let customers talk on the phone for over 21 hours straight on a single charge1. It’s the longest-lasting smartphone on the block, and at just 8.99 mm, the device is still impossibly thin. The DROID RAZR MAXX comes equipped with 32 GB of total memory and will be $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement.
The DROID Family by Motorola Complete with Tablets
