Motorola Razr Maxx shipping out May 18 in UK

May 11, 2012

UK readers, if all the hype and excitement surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S3 hasn’t affected your decision to buy Motorola’s beefed up Razr Maxx, you’ll be glad to hear that the phone is apparently just a week away from being released in the UK.

Over a month ago, we’ve brought you the good news that the Motorola Razr Maxx was expected to hit stores in the UK in mid-May. Now there’s finally a specific date at which you can expect to get the phone in your hands. UK online store Clove confirmed that they it’s ready to ship the Motorola Razr Maxx starting May 18.

The details we speculated about on our last story haven’t changed – the Razr Maxx is still priced at £430 ($680). Yes, the phone still sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 16GB internal storage, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, a Kevlar back, and a 3,300mAh battery. And yes, it will still ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Even though Clove says that the first stock will be made available on May 18, there’s a good chance that it’s reserved for those who have pre-ordered the phone. But there’s nothing wrong with trying your luck.

As for our Scandinavian friends in Norway and Sweden, Motorola Razr Maxx is expected to land this month as well. Still no price and date announcement though, but rest assured, we’ll report them once we get more information.

So, blokes and gals, are you planning to get the Motorola Razr Maxx?
