It’s big, it’s thin and it’s…purple? No it’s not Sam Keith’s The Maxx but Motorola’s new Verizon phone. The gorgeous Droid RAZR is welcoming a new member to the family with the Maxx. The Maxx moniker must be from the extended battery life in this version, it’s reported to hold down 21 whopping hours on a single charge! Angry birds to the max? 32GB of internal storage, 4G capable, Android 2.3 with a promised 4.0 upgrade and a dual-core 1.2GHZ processor. All packed into a super thin 8.99 mm thin frame.
Motorola is also slated to bring out a couple different lapdocks, an HD Dock, a vehicle mount and much more. The phone is going to be hitting soon and will run $300 bucks on a new two-year contract. Curious about the new phone? Hit the jump to check the press release!
