We haven’t seen much from Motorola recently, aside from the oddly timed “Flip Stand” dock. More than likely, this is due to changes and reshuffling in the company now that it has been acquired by Google. While it isn’t the next Nexus phone, Motorola has broken their silence and made three new RAZR variants (which were leaked quite a while ago) available on Verizon.
The low-end RAZR M isn’t much to get excited about even at $99, with only a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 display. The RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD share a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 8MP camera, and slightly low 1GB of RAM with the M, but get upgraded to 4.7-inch 1280 z 720 displays. A 2,530 mAh battery powers the regular RAZR HD, while the RAZR MAXX HD gets bumped up to a massive 3,300 mAh cell and adds another 16GB of storage.
All the devices include LTE and Android 4.0, but despite Motorola’s recent sentiments still include a custom skin. It’s nice to see new hardware from Motorola after Google’s purchase of the company, and the new RAZR MAXX units sound like very good Android smartphones for Verizon. They may be eclipsed by the next Nexus announcement, but for those who are interested in Motorola’s hardware, stay tuned for more coverage soon.
