The Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone arrived on January 26 of this year in the United States. That handset launched and is still exclusive to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system, and currently retails for $99 with a standard new two-year activation and data plan at select retailers. Running up to 10 times faster than the Verizon Wireless 3G network, the splash resistant, Kevlar and aluminum chassis offers protection to the impressive hardware and software located inside. The handset also benefits from a scratch resistant and glare reducing layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, and is capable of simultaneous voice and data access.

Earning the “max” in its name, the Droid Razr MAXX 4G delivers the most talk time or video playback offered by any smartphone, from a single charge of its oversized 3,300 mA battery. That marathon cell provides a 4G-best 21.5 hours of talk time or 15.0 hours of video playback. Even with that beast of a battery, the handset is still thinner than most smartphone offerings at only 0.35 inches (8.99 mm) in thickness. Motorola designed their Droid Razr MAXX 4G to operate as a laptop PC, desktop PC or high definition multimedia center when ported into one of the optional Motorola accessories made specifically for the handset.
Motorola designed what they call the HD Station for DROID RAZR MAXX, which enables the handset owner to access three USB ports and an HDMI video out port for hooking up for peripherals to the handset. A high definition monitor or television, keyboard, mouse and other electronics can be accessed, providing Desktop PC functionality and HD access through the integrated WebTop OS.
And the Lapdock 100 Motorola accessory turns the Droid Razr MAXX 4G into a 10.1 inch laptop, also adding five additional hours of battery life. The Motorola-designed accessory turns the handset into a thinner and lighter laptop than comparable sized offerings, and the WebTop OS allows full access to the World Wide Web. The hybrid smartphone/laptop comes equipped with a full keyboard and track pad.
As a smartphone, the display runs 4.30 inches with 540 x 960 pixel resolution. The Super AMOLED Advanced screen accepts capacitive, multitouch gestures for navigation, and visuals are rendered in more than 16 million colors. Powering the device is a Texas Instruments 4430 microchip package with a 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 central processor, and video capture is offered at 1,080P HD resolution with the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder.
