We caught our first glimpse of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX at CES with its added (but still irremovable) 3300 mAh battery. Instead of making things easy and allowing users the convenience of swapping out batteries, Motorola decided to create an entirely new version of the DROID RAZR, this time with better battery life for the power-sucking 4G LTE. Although everything besides the new battery remained the same, we weren’t given any sort of release date for the MAXX. The keen eyes over at Droid-Life noticed that Motorola wasn’t so coy, and in fact posted a release date of January 26 on their website.
Unless Verizon delays the release out of anger from having a release date spoiled by someone other than themselves, it’s safe to say the DROID RAZR MAXX will be hitting stores on the 26th. The MAXX version and its larger battery will cost $299 on contract and will have all the usual RAZR specs, minus its “razor thinness” and dismal battery life. If this is something that interests you, be sure to save the date, as the 26th is a solid bet.
