Motorola’s initial announcement of the Droid RAZR HD, RAZR Maxx HD, and RAZR M already seems like a distant memory. Five weeks ago, the trio was revealed for Verizon, and though the RAZR M went up for sale just a short time thereafter, we didn’t get much of an idea of when to expect the other two to arrive. Since then, we speculated that we’d be seeing a retail launch sometime in October, though those hopes were interrupted by new rumors of hardware problems. Well, it looks like that was either off-base or got resolved quickly, as today Verizon revealed both models will go up for sale on October 18.
There’s no mention of pre-orders in Verizon’s news release, but both the RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD will be available in stores and online on October 18. The RAZR HD, with its 16GB storage, will sell for just about $200 on-contract, while the 32GB RAZR Maxx HD will fetch closer to $300.
Both models feature 4.7-inch 720p screens, 1.5GHz dual-core SoCs, NFC support, and each has a gigabyte of RAM. While the RAZR HD gets a 2500mAh battery, the Maxx steps things up to 3300mAh.
