    We came across a series of photos that, while not showing-off anything interesting themselves, hid some tantalizing clues away in their EXIF data, marked as being shot by the Motorola Droid RAZRMAX. That's the first time we've seen that name, though the Motorola RAZR Maxx, sans Droid and with an extra "x", was an old flip phone on Verizon.

    Armed with this name, we went looking for any other evidence of the phone, and found some forum comments from earlier this week that mentioned a "Razr Max". The poster recalled a visit to a Verizon store, where he claims a Verizon employee told him such a phone would be coming out in the future, a little thicker than the Droid RAZR we know now due to the inclusion of a larger-capacity battery.

    On its own, it's easy to dismiss a story like that as coming from the imagination of an overzealous retail employee, but the fact that we already had the RAZRMAX name before coming across the post has us thinking that there might actually be something to it.

    We're not sure just what the plans are for this hardware, but we'll definitely be looking to find more information to help flesh-out our picture of it. Might there just be a new battery, or could Motorola have other changes (like a new HD display) in store for the phone?

    Oh dear....now instead of "Moto should let me swap my Bionic for the Razr" we'll be hearing "Moto should let me swap my Razr for the RazrMaxx".

    At the rate Moto's going, that might even beat the Nexus out to the market.

    Only if the Moto has the Ultra 2X upgrade along with the SPX offering. Code Speak for get your act together.
    Most of you don't know the SPX upgrade. Keep in mind, I just make it up as I go along. Just like others. This is ridiculous.

    At first guess I would have said it would be the RAZR with the 13mp cam from China, but the image above is 6mp, which is the cropped 8mp image that un-blur puts out. Now that doesn't mean the sensor couldn't be that 13mp just set to 6mp wide, but who knows. If they go HD screen, they better have a better camera sensor for once and ICS at launch would be nice, but not completely necessary.

    A CDMA variant of the S-TCDMA MT917 Motorola planning to launch 13MP variants of RAZR in China - GSMArena.com news In the second paragraph it details the 1280x720 screen and 13mp cam and 1mm thicker. Could be...

    Actually moto had a number of complaints that when thrown against a building not only did the Razr not cut said building down, but it broke. The Max will be able to cut through anything except diamond and some of the more durable metals, at least that's what I heard.

    In all seriousness another rumored device already is pretty crazy. I like variety but more time between new device cycles would not be a bad thing IMO.
