Verizon Finally Confirms Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx Launch Plans

We love a good smartphone rumor as much as the next guy, but there’s nothing quite so satisfying as finally seeing a bit of news officially confirmed. We’ve been curious about the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx since we first uncovered evidence of it back at the start of December. It seemed a little hard to believe at the time, that Motorola was refreshing RAZR hardware so soon after the phone’s debut, but later Verizon leaks seemed to confirm plans for the phone. At CES, Motorola formally announced the phone and revealed its price, but was less specific about when the handset would arrive. Since then, we’ve seen a couple of signs from both Motorola and Verizon that the Maxx would go up for sale on January 26. Sure enough, the carrier has now confirmed this Thursday for the start of RAZR Maxx sales.

Just as we learned at CES, the smartphone will be available for about $300 on-contract. For all intents and purposes, this is the same as the original Droid RAZR, but with a shell redesign to accommodate a much larger 3300mAh battery.

We’re still waiting to find out more about plans for the rumored RAZR Maxx battery demonstration, which will supposedly feature streaming coverage of a marathon session to show just how long the phone will last on a single charge. Supposedly, Motorola would broadcast the event on February 6.
