Motorola Gives The Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD A Price And Release Date, Both Coming October 18th
We know a lot of you have been waiting for Verizon and Motorola’s next-gen Razrs, the Razr HD and the Razr Maxx HD, to finally come out. Well today we have some good news for you– we finally now have a price and release date. Beginning next Thursday, October 18th, you’ll be able to go into your local Verizon store and pick these bad boys up. The Razr HD will cost $199.99 while the Maxx HD will cost $299.99, both with a new two-year contract.
For those who don’t know, the Razr HD and Maxx HD are the next generation of last year’s original Razr and January’s Razr Maxx. Like those Razrs, the Razr HD and Maxx HD have the same very thin, water-resistant design made from Kevlar (so you don’t need to worry about this breaking in half if it drops or if a little water gets on it), 8 megapixel back camera with a second HD front camera for HD video chat, and 4G LTE support. These new Razrs of course are also now packing some much updated specs such as a 1.5 GHZ dual-core processor (up from the 1.2 GHZ dual-core processor on the original Razr) with 1 GB of RAM, a larger 4.7 inch HD screen (up from the non-HD 4.3 inch screens on the older Razrs), Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with a promised upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean by the end of 2012), and support for NFC. The Razr HD will ship with 16 GB of storage and be available in either black or white while the Razr HD Maxx will ship in black with 32 GB of storage as well as that much larger battery for even better battery life (Motorola and Verizon claim it will get an insane 32 hours of battery life, or more than enough to get you through the day).
The 2012 Razr family: Maxx HD, HD and Razr M
We recently saw the new RAZRs at an event in New York and we gotta say they are some nice new phones. The screens were extremely sharp, things ran fast and they both felt great in our hands. As you’d expect with the RAZR line, both were extremely thin– even the HD Maxx which has that 30% larger battery (in fact when we put both side by side we had a hard time telling the difference between the Razr HD and HD Maxx). All in all, if you’re looking for some fast and thin phones on Verizon you’re going to want to check these out.
