They discovered the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system to be the fastest and most consistent at delivering 4G speeds. The Motorola Droid Razr MAXX HD was launched on October 18 on the 4G LTE network of Verizon in the United States, and it contains a unique security minded suite of software.

This protects your sensitive and personal information should the handset ever become lost or stolen, and the Razr MAXX HD 4G Android smartphone also comes packed with government level data encryption for your calendar, e-mail, contacts and other personal information. The handset also comes with a personal identification number locking system out-of-the-box.
The slim Motorola Droid Razr MAXX HD 4G is offered in either your choice of black or white, and delivers Near Field Communications (NFC) support out-of-the-box.
