Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX

Motorola DROID RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich update leaked

Best Buy says it's coming next week and Motorola wants some lucky testers to try it out, but if you just can't wait, you can get the official Ice Cream Sandwich update on your Motorola DROID RAZR right now. Friendly XDA modder yalkowni has posted a guide on fooling Motorola's servers into including you in the soak test, with the help of a non-Market app called "cheesecake". According to the XDA thread it's pulling the update directly from Motorola's servers, though some replies indicate that you need to have an active Motorola forum account.

Verizon Rezound, DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX could get ICS updates next week

So far not a single device on Verizon has gotten an Ice Cream Sandwich outside of the developer devices. That may change next week: TechnoBuffalo got a look at what appears to be an internal Best Buy document stating in black and white that Verizon intends to update the Motorola DROID RAZR, the DROID RAZR MAXX and the HTC Rezound to Ice Cream Sandwich next week - the RAZRs on Wednesday April 4th, and the Rezound on Friday April 6th. Consider this a rumor at this point, but it's better than nothing.

Motorola RAZR MAXX variant shows up in China

At present there's a lot of RAZRs going around - Motorola's got the original DROID RAZR on Verizon, the international Motorola RAZR, the DROID RAZR MAXX with its extended battery, a couple of local Chinese versions and a mystery phone that's probably coming as the DROID Fighter. Add one more to the pile: The RAZR MAXX XT910 is an international GSM version of the DROID RAZR MAXX, currently on sale in China. Aside from a new radio and some branding, the RAZR MAXX XT910 is identical to its American cousin.

Modder gives DROID RAZR a battery transplant for a home-made RAZR MAXX

There's more than a few early adopters of the Motorola DROID RAZR who felt miffed after Verizon unveiled the DROID RAZR MAXX at CES, just a couple of months after the original was released. As noted in our review, the hardware is staggeringly similar and the software is actually identical - literally the only difference is a slightly extended body to allow more room for the massive 3300mAh battery. So one XDA developer member did what those fellows do best ,and took apart both a DROID RAZR and the RAZR MAXX, swapped the batteries and the back half of the housing, and turned them on.

DROID RAZR MAXX ultimate battery test: 3-day business trip with no charger

Battery life is a problem for all mobile electronics, and Android is no exception. If there's one thing holding the platform back from a hardware perspective, it's the inability for high-powered Android phones to last through a full day without additional charges. There is one exception: the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. With its massive 3300mAh battery impressively kept in a housing thinner than 9mm, it's nothing less than the best combination of power, longevity and high-end components of any phone on the market.

Motorola DROID 4 hits Verizon on February 10th, along with BOGO RAZRs

The cost will be $199.99 as expected, naturally including a two-year contract or extension. Rumored for most of the 4th quarter of 2011 and only officially verified at CES in January, the DROID 4 has been one of Verizon and Motorola's most protracted phones since the DROID BIONIC.

This week in tech news, we see a number of software updates, preparations by companies for the Super Bowl, and even a few official device reviews. Monday, Motorola began to offer a bootloader-unlocked RAZR XT910 'Developer Edition'. It is currently available for €499 ($657), but only in Europe for the time being.
