If you’ve been dying to get your hands on the DROID RAZR HD or the DROID RAZR HD MAXX since Motorola showed the devices off back in early September, well good things come to those who wait—at least that what Heinz used to tell us—both devices are now available at Verizon Wireless.
The DROID RAZR HD (the one with the smaller battery and thinner physique) features a beautiful 4.7-inch Super AMOLED HD Display, 720p (720×1280) resolution. The 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 2530 mAh Li lon promises “all-day” battery life, a test we’re dying to try out. With the RAZR HD being a Verizon phone, you know that it supports 4G LTE for fast and reliable internet.
The RAZR HD MAXX is the bigger brother to the RAZR HD, it features a fatter body due to the larger 3,300mAh battery, which promises even better battery life than the normal RAZR HD, aside from the battery, it features all of the same specs right now to the camera, which is an 8-megapixel shooter (it also features a 1.3-megapixel front camera as well).
Sadly, both devices are launching with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and not Jelly Bean. This is a bit of a disappointment, especially when you consider that Jelly Bean has been available since June and that Google owns Motorola. With the Samsung Galaxy Note II shipping later this month, which WILL have Jelly Bean, there is no excuse as to why both of these devices, Flagship “DROID” phones, don’t ship with the latest version of Android. Regardless of the fact that Motorola says they’ll be updated shortly, it’s unacceptable this later after the updates release.
You can pick up both the RAZR HD and RAZR HD MAXX right now from Verizon for $199.99 and $299.99 respectively.
