DROID RAZR MAXX release date tipped for the 26th

There's a whole new Motorola RAZR in town, and those of you that've already picked up the old one should know this: the release date has been tipped to us for the RAZR MAXX to be the 26th of January, 2012. This sits well with the perhaps accidentally dropped date (also the 26th shown on the Motorola site earlier this week (and subsequently taken down), this leading us to believe that, barring any newly discovered mishaps before then, we can expect a bigger and bolder RAZR in our very near future.

This device is a dual-core "RAZR thin" 4G LTE Android device being carried by Verizon and its release has come so close to the release of the original DROID RAZR that it's almost as if they realized that the battery was too small and didn't have time to change it in the first place. That or it just made more sense to release one of the world's thinnest smartphones in its original ultra-thin form factor first to gain some press attention that it otherwise may note have gotten, then essentially silently release the MAXX which is the same, but a bit thicker because of its bigger battery.

Either way, it's happening, and we've got a hands-on look with the device so that you can tell how nice it looks whilst held in a hand. This device was released alongside the DROID 4 as well, if you did not know, and we've got a hands-on experience of that for you now as well. These devices were released at CES 2012, and we got a chance to look at them inside Pepcom.
