That feeling when you need to make an urgent phone call or send an extremely important email and find the battery indicator dangerously low… Yeah, we all experienced that at least once. The omnipresent trend to make phones thinner and thinner is taking its toll on battery life. Motorola seems to be the only manufacturer that actually sees the problem and actively tries to solve it. Motorola phones are known for long usage time and it appears that the upcoming Droid MAXX will have even more to offer in this respect.
Two Motorola’s new phones, the Droid RAZR HD and the Droid RAZR MAXX HD, which were recently released in Canada, are available in the US on Verizon Wireless starting today. The Motorola Droid RAZR HD costs $199.99 and the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD will set you back somewhat more – $299.99. Both smartphones require a new 2-year service agreement with Verizon. Have you decided yet which one to choose?
Being already 7 months old, Verizon’s Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD is getting cheaper and cheaper. Two months ago we reported that the handset was available at Amazon at a very attractive price of just $99.99 on contract. The deal applied to new customers only though, since existing Verizon subscribers had to shell out $50 more. If you are interested in the phone and want to become Verizon customer, we have good news for you. Amazon cut the price on the Droid RAZR MAXX HD once again.
If you have been waiting for a sale to grab a new Android-powered smartphone, Verizon may be your new best friend. As a part of the holiday sale of 2012, customers buying a device for upgrade or new two-year agreement, at Verizon online store, can save $50 on Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD, Droid RAZR MAXX, Droid RAZR M or HTC Incredible 4G LTE. Plus, if you purchase any Motorola Droid smartphone you will be eligible to get the Cranberry Motorola DROID RAZR for free on contract. Apart from the reduced prices, there are two models that are being offered for free – LG Lucid and Pantech Marauder. Well, are you interested?
The Motorola DROID RAZR was a big hit, so no wonder that the company decided to manufacture a sequel which will bear the name Droid Ultra. Just like last year’s model, the Motorola Droid Ultra will be launched in MAXX and M variants too. Courtesy of The Unlockr and XDA Developers forum we can take a peek at the phone . The former provided press shots of a black model, while the latter showed us a white variant of the device. The Droid Ultra also will be available in red.
Being on the market for five months now, the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD began getting cheaper. It is a result that the devices are no longer considered as the newest smartphones. Last week we told you about a great deal on Amazon, where the retailer was offering the Motorola DROID RAZR HD for just $0.01 to new customers. Now it is Verizon’s turn to cut the price and it seems that the carrier keep up market trends. Currently the Big Red dropped prices Droid RAZR HD MAXX and Droid RAZR HD by $100.
Why buying the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD from Verizon if you can get it $100 cheaper at Amazon? The online giant just lowered the price on the latest Droid model from $299 to $199. Moreover, the Motorola Droid RAZR HD got also price treatment and you can score it for just $149, which is $50 below the price offered at Verizon Wireless store. The deal is good for new and existing Verizon customers, of course – the two year contract is required.
Get $100 OFF on Motorola DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD or DROID RAZR M thanks to Motorola trade-in program
During the latest Motorola’s Press event, the phones’ manufacturer announced they would update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean most of its devices launched in 2011 and that they planned to do this by the end of this year. Some, however, will be left with the current version of the operating system – Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or even the older Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
For those smartphone owners who won’t be lucky to get Jelly Bean, Motorola prepared a special offer – if you send in your old phone purchased in 2011 you can get $100 off the purchase of one of the three new models which were introduced lately: Motorola DROID RAZR HD, Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD or Motorola DROID RAZR M.

Not many details of the trade-in offer have been released as of today. What we know for sure is that first you will have to buy one of the new Motorola smartphones launched on Thursday, namely the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD or the Motorola DROID RAZR M. Then you should send your old phone and you will get the $100 in the form of a gift card, carrier credit or other way not specified by Motorola so far.
You can check when and if your current Motorola model will be getting update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the company’s website. As soon as you fill in the form, you will also be emailed more information on the trade-in plan.
The owners of the smartphones that will get stuck with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 2.3 Gingerbread, may feel disappointed at first, but the trade-in offer is definitely a well-thought decision. It is a huge step towards the new updating trend and clearly shows that Motorola understand the importance of being up to date in the smartphone world.
If you’ve been waiting for a sale to grab the new Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD at cheaper price, Amazon is looking to give you the chance to get it for $120 off. Customers signing up new two-year agreement with Verizon, can get the latest Droid by Motorola for just $179. The deal is good for new customers only, but upgraders can still snag the phone for $199, which is $100 cheaper than at Verizon’s retail store.
If you are looking for a top-shelf phone on Verizon Wireless network, you will have a hard time finding a better one than the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. If you have not bought it so far, it means that the price probably was too high, which even on contract was well above the average. To make the handset a bit more affordable, Verizon cut the price by $50 during the holiday season to mere $250, which we mentioned about back in December. Now we have just spotted a new deal on the DROID RAZR MAXX HD, and it is the kind of deal that will make you blink in disbelief.
