As expected, Motorola has just introduced the RAZR MAXX Android phone in Italy. This is one of the first countries to get the smartphone, but the US-based handset maker promised the RAZR MAXX would be launched in most European countries in the following weeks.
Customers can now purchase the Motorola RAZR MAXX via major authorized resellers across Italy for a suggested retail price of 549 EUR (705 USD).
Specs-wise, there aren’t many important differences between Motorola’s Android flagship smartphone, the RAZR, and the newly launched RAZR MAXX
Apart from the enhanced battery, Motorola RAZR MAXX doesn’t come up with anything new in terms of hardware in comparison with the standard Motorola RAZR.
The RAZR MAXX is powered by a high-capacity 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 25 days of standby time or up to 17.6 hours of talk time. Obviously, continuous usage time is much lower than these numbers.
The phone is shipped with Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread operating system out of the box, but it has been scheduled for an Ice Cream Sandwich
upgrade in Q2 2012.
When it comes to design, the handset features the same slim form factor of the RAZR, as well as the premium materials, including KEVLAR fiber, Corning Gorilla Glass and splashguard coating.
On the inside, the device is equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHZ, complemented by 1GB RAM. In addition, Motorola RAZR MAXX packs 16GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats.
“RAZR MAXX isn’t changing the rules - it’s creating a whole new game. Building on the RAZR heritage it combines the pinnacle of design with mind-blowing power and an incredible battery life that is perfect for people who want to push their smartphone to the limits
