A recent leaked advertisement image from a Verizon store shows that they will be shaving $100 off the price. This would lower the current $299.99 contract price of the DROID RAZR MAXX down to $199.99, thus making it only $100 more than the standard DROID RAZR. Keep in mind the MAXX has the larger 3300mAh battery that will allow the device to go longer without a charge.
We'll keep a look-out, as no one knows yet when this $100 discount will start, but it may coincide around the launch of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, which will be the newest smartphone at the $299 price tier.
