Motorola RAZR MAXX Europe
We saw a Chinese version of the Motorola RAZR MAXX just a few days ago, and now Motorola have announced that their big-battery smartphone is on its way to Europe too.
Very simply, the RAZR MAXX is the RAZR with a battery that is almost twice as big, but only a couple of millimetres thicker and about 20 grams heavier. Motorola say that this battery should give the RAZR MAXX up to 17.6 hours talktime.
Motorola RAZR MAXX Apart from the battery, this is basically the same RAZR that hit the market a few months ago, with a dual core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3" 540 x 960 pixel display, a 8 megapixel main camera plus a 1.3 megapixel video calling unit and all the usual Android features are here too.
Some other features include a Kevlar-clad back, a water resistant coating and Corning Gorilla Glass to protect the display. Motorola's built-in "Smart Actions" allow you to do clever things with your phone depending on location, caller or any one of a number of other triggers.
There are also a range of accessories available such as docking stations and vehicle mounts, even including a Lapdock that turns the RAZR into a mini laptop.
Out of the box the RAZR MAXX looks like it runs Android 2.3, although there should be an upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS in the works soon. Motorola say that the phone should be available in the UK and certain other European and Middle Eastern markets from May 2012. Although no price was given, we would expect the RAZR MAXX to retail for something in the €500 region.
