From time to time, Verizon employees are offered a special deal, whether it’s cool insider information on future phones or early releases ahead of the public market. Either way, they are usually informed what is…
It might have taken Motorola and Verizon some time to get out the Droid Razr HD/Razr Maxx HD duo of high-end phones, but now that the two have finally started selling, there isn’t much point in still being upset with the manufacturer and carrier. After all, it could have been worse.
The two 4.7-inchers can be had from Big Red’s official website, but also from two other very popular retailers, Amazon and Wirefly.
Both Verizon and Amazon have the Droid Razr HD up for grabs for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The price is valid for white and black versions of the phone for new Verizon customers, as well as for existing users wanting to upgrade or add a new line. As for the pricing of the SIM-free, unlocked version, that’s $599.99 via Verizon and $699.99 from Amazon.
The Droid Razr Maxx HD is only available in black and goes for a hundred bucks more than its “brother” from both Amazon and Verizon. $299.99 will therefore get you the 3,300 mAh battery equipped behemoth with a 2-year contract, no matter if you are a new customer or an existing one looking for an upgrade. The Maxx HD’s full retail price (aka with no contract) is $649.99 via Big Red and $729.99 via Amazon.
Though you’ll probably not find yourselves complaining of these prices, you should know that you can make even better deals if you go through Wirefly. The retailer that has spoiled us lately with a wide array of promotions and special offers has the Razr HD in black and white for $149.99, while the Maxx HD goes for $199.99.
On the flipside, it seems that Wirefly’s website is down for the moment, but hopefully the deals will be there when the hiccups will be solved later on. Also, do remember to check out the two phones' full specs here before making any decision. Enjoy!
