Motorola trademarks Moto Maxx name

Let the guessing game begin! Over at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Motorola has filed for a trademark for a certain "Moto Maxx" name. Though the exact nature of the device is still unknown, the name has usually been applied to a smartphone. But what kind of smartphone will bear this already familiar brand?


Today the folks from Motorola released the all new DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD to the world. Both smartphones are available today and we've been getting a few questions on which one is right for you, or if the higher price is worth it. While we need to spend more time with the MAXX HD to fully decide, below is a video to show you all three smartphones available from Motorola's RAZR thin family.

Verizon launches Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD

If you're in the market for a new Android smartphone, Verizon and Motorola have some good news for you. The Motorola Droid RAZR M will now be joined by the RAZR HD and the RAZR MAXX HD, all available on Verizon's website and at Verizon retailers today. The three devices are available at prices ranging from $99.99 to $299.99 with a 2-year agreement. All three devices are compatible with Verizon's 4G LTE network. The phones start with the lower-end RAZR M, which is $99.99 with a new 2-year contract. It features a 4.3-inch screen with a 960x540 resolution and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of internal storage with support for up to 32GB SB cards. It has Android 4.0.4 ICS installed. The next phone for sale through Verizon is the DROID RAZR HD. This phone is $199.99 with a new contract. Its screen is bigger than the RAZR M, coming in at 4.7-inches. Like the RAZR M, it comes with Ice Cream Sandwich installed, but it is upgradable to Jelly Bean. It has a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It also has 16GB of internal storage. The last new phone is the DROID RAZR MAXX HD which comes in at a hefty $299.99. Both this phone and the DROID RAZR HD feature a 4.7-inch 1280x720 screen. It comes with ICS and is upgradable to Jelly Bean. It has 32GB of internal storage. Where the DROID RAZR M and DROID RAZR HD come with a 2000 and 2530 mAH battery respectively, the MAXX has a massive 3300 mAH battery. All three phones are available now. [timeline]

Motorola DROID RAZR HD hits Verizon October 18th

Today Verizon and Motorola have officially announced when we'll be seeing their new DROID RAZR HD smartphone arrive on Big Red. With the international RAZR HD already available in Canada, it was only a matter of time before Verizon released a statement. Both the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, and RAZR MAXX HD will be available online and in stores starting October 18th.

Verizon confirms global roaming for Rezound and three DROIDs

We've seen hacks and hints, but Verizon has finally confirmed that select devices in its 4G LTE stable will be getting access to global roaming soon. The HTC Rezound and the Motorola DROID RAZR, DROID RAZR MAXX and DROID 4 will all have their latent GSM capabilities switched on this summer, with voice roaming possible in "more than 220 countries" and data in "more than 205". Exact dates were not given.

Verizon may enable global roaming on LTE phones soon

Verizon's no stranger to global roaming, but thus far none of its 4G LTE devices have been graced with this feature. This, despite the fact that many users have been able to mod phones like the HTC Rezound for just that, and even enable rudimentary access to domestic GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. Some candid photos of upcoming in-store materials show that Verizon is indeed planning to activate the latent GSM bands in the HTC Rezound, and probably other LTE phones, for international travel.
