New Motorola Droid RAZR M, RAZR HD, and RAZR MAXX HD are now available on Verizon

razrs - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

We haven’t seen much from Motorola recently, aside from the oddly timed “Flip Stand” dock. More than likely, this is due to  changes and reshuffling in the company now that it has been acquired by Google. While it isn’t the next Nexus phone, Motorola has broken their silence and made three new RAZR variants (which were leaked quite a while ago) available on Verizon.

The low-end RAZR M isn’t much to get excited about even at $99, with only a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 display. The RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD share a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 8MP camera, and slightly low 1GB of RAM with the M, but get upgraded to 4.7-inch 1280 z 720 displays. A 2,530 mAh battery powers the regular RAZR HD, while the RAZR MAXX HD gets bumped up to a massive 3,300 mAh cell and adds another 16GB of storage.

All the devices include LTE and Android 4.0, but despite Motorola’s recent sentiments still include a custom skin. It’s nice to see new hardware from Motorola after Google’s purchase of the company, and the new RAZR MAXX units sound like very good Android smartphones for Verizon. They may be eclipsed by the next Nexus announcement, but for those who are interested in Motorola’s hardware, stay tuned for more coverage soon.

    Im sorry but this is an awkwardly worded article, especially the second paragraph – its hard to keep track of the specs that go with each phone.

    However this is very interesting. Pretty novel strategy releasing phones at different levels and price points all at the same time

  • Do not agree with the “low end” definition of the Razr M. Only because it has a qHD screen? Has the pixel density become the new fad in smart phone specs? It is probably the most compact phone available with a 4.3″ screen and a 2000mAh battery. As you wrote, most if not all of the internals are shared with the Razr HD and MAXX HD. It does not have a HDMI port, but you can stream video over Wi-Fi using DLNA to compatible computers and smart TVs. It is also the only Android global phone available from Verizon at this price (it works also on GSM networks outside of US)

    In case you are wondering, yes, I have one :-) Frankly, unless you smack your nose on the screen, I doubt the average person would notice the difference in regular use between its resolution and that of the Razr HD and Razr MAXX HD.

    Now, if you want to talk about how bad a pentile screen can look with certain background/foreground combinations, I concede that the Razr M screen is not the best out there!

    I love gadgets! And I want the new Maxx HD. But I’d have to pay full price since I joined Big Red just last February. But of course if I want to keep my 4GB tiered plan I’d have to pay full price when I upgrade anyways. So I’m trying to find a way to justify buying a new device I don’t need to my wife. I got my current Maxx last February during the BOGO FREE sale so I got to Maxxes for $250 after a $50 coupon.

    Anybody want to buy a Maxx?
