You probably already know that the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone is in the middle of receiving an over the air update to the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 operating system. You probably also know that the Droid Razr MAXX 4G is exclusive to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system which was rated the fastest and most reliable by independent wireless systems reviewer RootMetrics earlier this year. And there is no doubt you have heard that the “max” in the the Droid Razr MAXX name refers to the 4G-best 21.5 hours of talk time or 15.0 hours of video playback provided from a single charge of the 3,300 mA battery on board the handset.

But one of the features that has flown under the radar of 4G smartphone shoppers and mobile marketplace mavens is the versatile functionality that the Droid Razr MAXX provides. The handset can actually function as a desktop PC, entry-level laptop and high definition multimedia center with the addition of specific Motorola accessories.
When you port the handset into the Lapdock 100 laptop accessory, the hybrid creation delivered is an entry-level laptop with a 10.1 inch display. And though the handset already leads all 4G smartphones in battery performance, the Lapdock 100 also adds 5.0 hours of run time. The laptop created delivers a full keyboard and track pad, and uses Motorola’s WebTop OS to provide web access.
Conversely, the handset can be plugged into the Motorola HD Station which allows you to access multiple peripherals and electronics devices. The HD Station delivers three USB slots and an HDMI port, providing access to a big screen monitor or HDTV, keyboard, mouse, microphone, speakers and any other USB devices. This allows you to access the dual core 1.2 GHz central processor on board the handset so you can use the Droid Razr MAXX as a desktop PC or multimedia center.
The handset also functions admirably as a smartphone. The 4.3 inch screen accepts multitouch, capacitive gestures and renders visuals in more than 16 million colors. That Super AMOLED display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, and resolution runs 540 x 960 pixels. The rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder records video in 1,080P HD resolution, and the front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam also offers video call capability. 32 GB of data storage are offered out-of-the-box, 1.0 GB of RAM memory is on board and a graphics specific PowerVR SGX540 chip is also present.
