Verizon employees receive special edition Red DROID RAZR MAXX

Verizon employees receive special edition Red DROID RAZR MAXX
Back in February, Big Red extended an offer to its employees that allowed them to purchase a limited edition DROID RAZR MAXX in either 16GB or 32GB for $99 or $199, respectively. These special edition RAZR MAXXs are adorned with red accents, emblazoned with the phrase “LIMITED EDITION” next to Verizon’s logo, and come engraved with a unique number.

These phones started to arrive and the photos show a hot color scheme for the popular Android powered handset. Essentially the silver and grey accents have been replaced with black and red. The power button on the side is red and, most notably, the carbon fiber-esque pattern on the back is now black and red.

These custom paint jobs are not available to the general public unless you’re willing to shell out a ridiculous amount of cash on eBay. The folks over at Droid Life followed one auction where an employee put theirs up for sale before they even had the device. Bidding opened up at $750 and ended at $2250! We have to admit, the design is pretty sweet, but it’s definitely not two grand sweet.

Check out the photos to see for yourself. How much would pay to nab a limited edition Red DROID RAZR MAXX?

Sorry to burst your bubble BUT the Razr is a "Droid" which is exclusive to ONLY Verizon... so Motorola might design a phone similar for other carriers but it wont be the DROID RAZR...FYI

the Droid Razr is exclusive to Verizon but not the Razr. there's international variants that can be imported.

The international versions are all almost GSM versions, so they would only (probably) work on AT&T or T-Mo, not really worth it in my opinion.

Employees sign one year contracts. Who are you smwandrie93 you obviously don't work for Verizon Wireless.

I know that our channel has been in limbo and we have a list old phones to pick from that don't carry a contract. It was all supposed to change to the one year contract but there were issues that held ours up. I may be calling my rep though after this.
