Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX on backorder at Verizon
Earlier this month, it appeared as though Verizon had already gone through its initial shipment of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. Big Red's web site was showing that the unit was temporarily out of stock, although that was changed that day to show that the phone would resume shipping just two days later. But demand continues to grow for the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, which Verizon claims has 21 hours of talk time (we were able to squeeze no more than a still remarkable 17 hours out of  the phone) thanks to its 3300mAh battery. A look at the Verizon web site shows that orders placed today will not be shipped for a week.

On backorder is the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
Verizon's web site currently shows no other smartphones in backorder as the carrier has finally caught up with the demand for certain variants of the Apple iPhone 4S. A few weeks after its launch, Verizon was still behind in shipping out pre-orders for the 16GB model of the Apple iPhone 4S. Now, it is the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX that is out of stock. Besides thew massive battery, another reason for the lack of inventory for the model is that Verizon has been offering a BOGO deal on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX which started the first week of this month. Nothing depletes inventory as fast as strong demand on a "Buy One, Get One" deal.

A recent conceptual design for a quad-core powered Motorola Atrix 3 showed the phone with a 3300mAh battery. Although that is make-believe for now, it is not too far off the track in that you can expect to see the DROID RAZR MAXX experiment repeated by Motorola. With the strong demand for an LTE enabled Android phone with a battery that can last a full day at least, it is simply a good business decision.

The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX is $299.99 with a signed 2-year contract and if you can't find one in stock at your local Verizon store, and don't want to wait a week for the phone to be shipped, you do have another option. The limited edition variant of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX offered only to Verizon employees for $199.99 has made it to eBay. As we told you, there is at least one unit that can be bid on or bought immediately at a price of $2,250. However, that unit will arrive between February 24th and March 1st which means you could end up with the phone a little later than if you just ordered it through Verizon's web site. On the other hand, if you can afford to spend over two grand on a new handset, you probably can afford to have it shipped via overnight delivery.
