Tired of lugging around an extra battery pack and/or charger? That’s just one of the prices that you have to pay for owning a smartphone instead of a ‘dumb’ phone. But you won’t have to see your phone dying out on you just as you’re about to win at “Words with Friends” if you sport the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. Known simply as the Razr Maxx, the European GSM version of the phone and its beefy 3,300mAh battery are expected to come to the Old Continent this month.
If that’s old news, here’s something that folks in Norway and Sweden should be pleased to hear: the Motorola Razr Maxx is heading to your respective countries in mid-May. Since the news has been confirmed by Motorola itself, it’s best to start saving now if you want to be among first to own the phone.
Motorola seems to have forgotten to include a tiny bit of information – the price of the Razr Maxx. But the device will probably be sold at about the same price like the British version. A UK-based online store pegs the price of the Razr Maxx at £430, which is the rough equivalent of €530. Not a bad proposition for an 8.99mm-thin smartphone that can last up to three days with regular usage on a single charge.
Unfortunately, the Motorola Razr Maxx will still ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. That shouldn’t be too much of a deal breaker, though. An update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is only a matter of when, and not if. The 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8MP rear camera, Kevlar fiber back cover, and, of course, the huge battery still make for one irresistible package.
