A new report says that Verizon may release in the future a Motorola handset similar to the XT1058 (rumored AT&T XFON), suggesting that a CDMA Google X Phone may be launched alongside a GSM version…
European folks who want to get their hands on the Droid Razr Maxx can now pre-order the phone from UK online store Clove for a tax-including price of £430, or roughly $680. Never mind that four months have have passed since the phone was first launched; that 3300mAh battery deserves your full attention.
Pre-ordering the Droid Razr Maxx now will ensure that you’ll be one of the first to walk away with the phone when it ships in mid-May. To sweeten the deal, the online retailer will also throw in a free MOTOROKR EQ3 Wired Compact Folding Speaker, that’s worth £20.
With such a huge battery, you can squeeze 17.6 hours talk time and up to 380 standby hours out of the Droid Razr Maxx, or roughly 16 hours of video playback. Not bad at all for a device that’s only 8.99mm thick. The internals are nothing to scoff at either; with its 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch super AMOLED Advanced qHD display, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and Kevlar rear cover, the Razr Maxx holds its own against any mobile device out there. While the US version of the Droid Razr Maxx on Verizon comes with 4G radio, the European version only supports 3G.
It’s worth mentioning that the Droid Razr Maxx will only ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. A recent leak from Best Buy’s internal document system has indicated that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the phone would come on April 4. Since that date passed without no track of ICS in sight, owners of the phone had no choice but to breathe a collective sigh of despair and cross their fingers once more.
