Alongside the Droid RAZR HD that Motorola and Google announced this morning, there's also a version with a much bigger battery--the Droid RAZR Maxx HD. It's pretty much the same as the RAZR HD, with the exception of packing in 32GB of internal storage, and an incredible 3,300mAh battery that Motorola claims will provide up to 21 hours of talk time, or 8 straight hours of LTE-powered web browsing. The RAZR Maxx HD is 9.3mm thin, so a tiny bit thicker than the regular RAZR HD, but that's the price you pay to be a road warrior, right? You'll be able to nab your own Droid RAZR Maxx HD this holiday season from Verizon. Be sure to check out the full Motorola. On Display. event video.
Motorola has finally (formally) unveiled the Droid RAZR HD, its new flagship device going into the holiday season. At its Motorola. On Display. event, the Droid RAZR HD was revealed as the world's most compact 4.7-inch smartphone, sporting a 4.7-inch 720p display, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, NFC, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, and a nice 2,500mAh battery. The phone is wrapped in that same Kevlar coating that we saw on the original Droid RAZR and it 8.4mm thin. The Droid RAZR HD will ship with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, but a Jelly Bean upgrade should drop before the end of the year. Expect the device to launch on Verizon, with 4G LTE in tow, this holiday season.
Looks like the Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE device has been leaked with pics and specs galore. What can you expect from the former XT907 Verizon device? How about a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box? Yeah, we know, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been out for a couple of months, but that's how it goes with Android. Other features include 1GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 3-megapixel front camera, 8GB internal storage (expandable with a microSD card,) and NFC. You get the same industrial Kevlar design that's found on the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX, which is actually nice. We expect it to be officially unveiled on September 5th.

Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system was officially unveiled at Google I/O 2012 just a couple of weeks ago, and it looks pretty fantastic. If you've been hoping to get your hands on it and your the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ smartphone, it's time for you to rejoice--the Jelly Bean rollout has begun for you! Do note that this refers to Galaxy Nexus devices that run on AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Owners of the Verizon Wireless Galaxy Nexus will have to wait a bit longer. The Nexus 7 tablet, Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom are next on the list to receive Android 4.1 goodness.
Anyone start playing with Jelly Bean yet? Feel free to sound off in the comments.
Verizon has just cut the price of the Droid RAZR Maxx by a whopping $100, bringing the price of the long-lasting 4G LTE smartphone down to $199.99 with two-year contract. That's a great price for the supercharged Motorola handset. Verizon is also touting its new partnership with Facebook video app Color, which allows you to share 30-second video snippets over 4G LTE. Speaking of the Droid RAZR Maxx, it should be picking up Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich very, very shortly.
Not feeling all the black and (sometimes) white Android devices out there? Well, prepare yourself, because Verizon has announced that a blue version of the Motorola Droid RAZR is on the way. Just to be clear, the only thing changing here is the color, so you'll get the same 4.3-inch display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS that all the other RAZRs are rocking. The blue model officially goes on sale next week, but you might be able to find it at physical Verizon stores a little sooner than that.
In this episode we give you a look at the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. This is a follow-up to the Droid RAZR, with the major difference being that the RAZR MAXX packs in a 3300 mAh battery. The result? The RAZR MAXX has twice the battery life of the Droid RAZR that was just released a couple of months ago. In fact, this is the first 4G LTE smartphone that we've found that doesn't have horrible battery life. With the Droid RAZR MAXX, you can count on the battery to last all day and night, which is a welcome change from what we've found with other 4G smartphones. It's also got an 8 megapixel camera that records 1080p, and the front camera records 720p as well. It's also got a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. You can pick up the Droid RAZR MAXX for $299.

Motorola announced on Wednesday that its Xoom tablets are going to finally receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update that so many have been waiting for. For those of you who do not know, Ice Cream Sandwich is the latest version of Android (currently Android 4.0.3). The update will be applied over the air, assuming you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, immediately. The update will give Xoom tablet users more functionality, including voice capabilities and faster browser rendering.
