    The Droid RAZR MAXX makes it's debut with the thinness we have all come to love and know. The handset boasts an incredible 21 hours on a single charge. The 3,300mAh battery and Smart Actions should easily power this handset and meet those numbers.

    The release, posted below, also mentions a 16GB Purple version of the Droid RAZR that will run a skinny $199.99 on contract.

    The current RAZR is 7.1mm while the RAZR MAXX is 8.99mm. Let me do some quick math here...the new one is 1.89mm thicker. Is that purely because of the battery? I guess so.

    Instead of allowing the battery to be removed and letting people buy an extended battery & cover they've decided to go this route. I'm guessing that a whole lot of current RAZR owners won't be too happy about this.

    sounds to me like a $100 extended battery thats only a small increase.

    I was saying in another thread if the RAZR MAXX had a Quad Core, more memory and different screen technology or any one of those 3 I could see people being upset.

    I'm happy with how thin the phone is (still thinner) and bettery life is good. Nothing to get upset about. Same phone but one is thicker with larger battery.

    I'll go with the thinner one but thats just me.

    I don't think that a phone made from kevlar and stainless steel, covered with a water resistant coating should ever, EVER be purple!... :icon_ lala:

    really moto? Not even an hd display, but just beefed up battery? Looks like you're going to have another quarter with a loss. That's why sammy is kicking your a$$.

    really wanted to get the maxx for my wife. but no hd display, no thx.

    Then there will be a Maxx 2 having a better screen + the battery. And then a maxx 3 etc. Why didn't they just do this with the first razr they made. And like stated above they could of solved this crap by just putting in a removable battery

    If they had done this with the first RAZR, that means the first one would have been scrapped in design, delayed and then released a month before the next flagship phone... Sound familiar?

    Larger battery, understandable. Purple? (Has there ever been a purple phone before?) What's next, pink, green, yellow, red....?

    Call me a girly girl but I think a purple phone could be kind of fun. Depends on how purple it really is.

    3300mah battery? That's a lot of juice. Its irritating that they come out with this stuff so close together but that's business.

    Girly! Jk

    Its probably one heavy SOB. That and the RAZR's uncomfortable design will make it even easier to drop

    The HTC Rhyme is plum. Which I guess is a shade of purple.

    And the OG Razr has been all those colors before lol.

    I know plenty of girls who love purple and I'm pretty sure thats the demographic they are trying to hit with it.

    Heck I'd love to own a Classic Dodge Challenger in Plum Krazy aka Purple :)

    Sounds like they're going the Nexus route with no expandable storage. I don't like that. Even though I never take out my card, I like the idea that I can.
