Motorola Announces RAZR MAXX Hitting Europe And Middle East In May

By most accounts, the Motorola DROID RAZR is an excellent phone, though battery life is questionable. Which is exactly what makes the RAZR MAXX such a great phone: at 9mm, it's still thin, but packs a battery with 85% more capacity (1780 vs 3300mAh). At the moment, the RAZR MAXX isn't sold in Europe and Middle East, but the company has just announced that will change sometime in May.

A quick refresher of the specs:

  • Android 2.3.6 (Android 4.0 update reportedly coming tomorrow)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card in the box (32GB of storage total)
  • 4.3" Super AMOLED qHD display
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • 8.99mm thin, 4.5oz

No word on what specific day it will go on sale, but we're sure the company will release some details closer to then.
