"Red Carpet" Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX will be given out to select Oscar nominees and presenters

With the 84th Oscar Academy Awards all set for this Sunday, it appears as though Motorola is going to have a huge presence during Hollywood’s biggest night. Well, that’s because its special edition “Red Carpet” Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX will be given out to select nominees and presenters at the event.

So what makes this version different from the one that has captured the hearts of smartphone lovers all around with its phenomenal battery life? For starters, it’s worth mentioning that this isn’t something that’s going to be sold in stores or online. There isn’t anything particularly improved or new with this “Red Carpet” version, as it maintains the same specs and design as before, but it's going to be accompanied by some sweet goodies for the stars.

Specifically, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees will be provided with an additional gold sequined pouch, while nominees for Best Actor, Supporting Actor, and Director will be given a high-end shaving kit with their version. Well, it doesn’t stop there, since Moto is generous enough to provide them all with Motorola ELITE SLIVER Bluetooth headsets as well.

Even though it’s not going to be sold publicly, “mere mortals” are going to have the opportunity of snagging this limited edition version by simply participating in Moto’s Twitter sweepstakes that commences this Thursday, February 23rd. Five lucky fans will have the chance to win it by simply retweeting the hashtag #RedCarpetRAZR.

Naturally, we’ll be watching to see whether the handset will be making a cameo on TV, or simply, who will be bold enough to show off one of the hottest smartphones on the market right now.

Very smart advertising. Lots of tech sites made a big deal of how at the Super Bowl the visibility of the iPhone in the post-game chaos was huge (and free) advertising by stars. This might cost Motorola a little, but the visibility factor could pay off very well for them.

What? You think giving a woman a complimentary shaving kit is a good idea? "Oh, nice dress. Is that Armani? Prada? Here, take this for your legs sasquatch."

I really hope, at this point, that this is just bad sarcasm. On the off chance that it's not, as a man, I'd be equally insulted if someone gave me a new phone but made it a point to put it in a gold, sequined clutch.

They did the same years back when they gave them the Motorola V600 in their gift baskets. This phone was plagued by delays and wasn't released to the public when it was given to the celebs.

Motorola is stupid for signing an exclusivity contract on the Razr and Razr Maxx. If the Maxx was on T-Mobile right now I'd buy one today. Don't they remember the original Razr taking off because it was on every carrier in the world? Haven't they noticed the sales success the Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 have been due to their lack of exclusivity agreements?
