Motorola RAZR MAXX officially coming to Europe and the Middle East

Motorola RAZR MAXX officially coming to Europe and the Middle East
Smartphones with tough batteries are a rare breed, but there is one that U.S. consumers are likely well familiar with. We are talking about the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, as frequent readers have already guessed, which packs a beefy 3,300mAh cell under its hood. However, since its launch, the device has been a Verizon exclusive.

But that is bound to change in the near future for the Motorola RAZR MAXX is coming to Europe and the Middle East. This, of course, is the GSM version of the aforementioned DROID RAZR MAXX, which drops the LTE radio in favor of an HSPA+ one. Other than that, the two devices are pretty much identical.

The Android powered Motorola RAZR MAXX packs a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with qHD resolution. Inside it ticks a 1.2GHz dual-core processor accompanied by a gig of RAM. Turn the smartphone around and you will see its 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, but what will also catch your eye is the KEVLAR-made back cover. Surprisingly, the unit itself is only 9 millimeters thick despite having a 3,300mAh battery inside of it. And that amount of juice should be enough to provide the impressive 17 hours of talk time.

Ready to pick one up? Well, you have to be a bit patient for the Motorola RAZR MAXX is coming to select markets in Europe and the Middle East no sooner than May of 2012. Pricing has yet to be announced.

I wouldnt bother, go take a look at Motorolas european facebook page, all you see is ppl crying for updates that moto never delivers. If your fine with that then sure get this phone, but if you want some sort of aftermarket support and os updates then youll have to look else where.

If NO other company with great after sales support and who delivers updates pretty fast IS NOT READY TO GIVE A USABLE BATTERY LIFE, then I am very very happy to live with un-supported company's JUMBO-BATTERY EQUIPPED phone... Further ICS is about to reach this month in BigRED's MAXX... And Google will be the boss of MotoMobility when this phone reaches my hand... So I am NOT worrying about updates... Above all there is XDA... The only chance I am NOT buying this phone is IF AND ONLY IF Sammy releases S-III with 3000+ mAh battery.... Now I need NOT irritate Motorola's twitter and FB accounts reg the GSM version of MAXX...

The Maxx is the most amazing phone I've ever owned. No other smartphone can go 40+ hours on a single charge with heavy usage. And the comments about Motorola's software being out of date??? Spare me. This phone performs wonderfully and has few, if any bugs or glitches at all. It's fast, responsive and lives up to all the hype. And yes, it's very thin. It's thinner than the iPhone ans the battery lasts twice as long. No joke. I get 29Mbps down on VZ's LTE and 11Mbps up. The iPhones fake 4G even begin to compete. If you want the biggest, most badass highest resolution display, go with the Galaxy Nexus and enjoy 13 hours of battery life. I've been unplugged for 37 hours and am at 33% battery. It's exciting.

Please Excuse Lots of typos on my long-winded post above because phone arenas stupid website totally blows on a smartphone using dolphin browser. It's not perfect but nothing rarely is. Nothing beats a real desktop computer but the RAZR maxx really helps out when on the go. Stepping out for an entire weekend without worrying about a charger is pretty cool stuff.
