Update 1/26/12: The MAXX is now live on VZW (thanks, Vinoth):

If you were following along with us and the action of CES, then you undoubtedly caught the announcement of the Droid RAZR MAXX, an 8.99 mm thin beast packing a 3,300 mAh battery that will likely outlast you in terms of needing to recharge. While it is nearly 2 mm thicker than the original Droid RAZR, it is still incredibly thin for how long the battery lasts.

When the words Blur and Android 4.0 meet in the same sentence, it's cringe-inducing for most users. Let's be honest here, that's a justified reaction. Blur pretty much sucks.

For the time being, anyway.

A leaked ICS ROM for the international version of the RAZR showed up earlier today with full Blur intact and, surprisingly enough, it doesn't look too bad. It retains more of a stock look than previous version of Blur, with seemingly few modifications made to the homescreens and app drawer.

Droid RAZR MAXX

Verizon Wireless and Motorola just took the wraps off the new Droid RAZR - the Droid RAZR MAXX, a familiar name we saw leaked a few weeks ago. The RAZR MAXX contains the following changes compared to the original:

  • A beefier battery with an unknown at the moment capacity. What we do know is that it allows for more than 21 hours of talk time on a single charge.

Motorola Droid RAZR owners (and developers) received a bit of good news yesterday, thanks to a leaked set of fastboot files which allow your RAZR to be restored to stock in case of a soft brick or other unforeseen issue.

Many users over at XDA and DroidRZR.com forums have already reported success in flashing the files and restoring their devices, indicating that the fastboot set is, in fact, the real deal.

Verizon teased us with the white Droid RAZR last week when it announced the Droid Xyboard, and now the official release date has been outed for tomorrow, December 15th for $299 with a two-year agreement. The white variant sports the same powerful specs and its all-black predecessor:

  • 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, front facing camera
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card
  • Android 2.3.5
  • 7.1mm thin, 127 grams
  • 1800mAh battery
  • Made with Kevlar fiber
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Motorola Splash Guard
  • Webtop cabpable
  • 4G LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0

It's also worth mentioning that if you pick one of these up, you can get $100 off the [overpriced] Droid Xyboard, so if you're in the market for both, now is probably the best time to buy.

Big Red just took the wraps off of two new Motorola tablets that we've been hearing about for a while now: the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2. Both tablets are running nearly identical specs, save for screen size:

  • 10.1-inch and 8.2-inch IPS display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB available for XYBOARD 10.1; 16GB and 32GB options available for XYBOARD 8.2
  • Android 3.2 - will be upgraded to Android 4.0
  • Verizon 4G LTE

Each tablet was built to address a specific market - the XYBOARD 10.1 is made for productivity and the use of a "precision tip stylus," which is included in the box, while the XYBOARD 8.2 was designed with multimedia in mind and sports 2.1 virtual surround sound and a "high-definition display."

Both tablets also come business-ready, as they come bundled with office-centric software such as Quickoffice HD and Citrix GoToMeeting.

Never one to keep its source code hidden away from the public's prying eyes (certainly more than can be said for, say, HTC), Motorola has decided to release the DROID RAZR's source code. This should make ROM development significantly easier, so hopefully we'll see a few more alternatives to MOTOBLUR pop up shortly. Devs, get on it!

Amazon Wireless, one of our favorite online mobile retailers, launched its Black Friday promotions a little early this year, and boy are they good!

Did I say good? I meant absolutely incredible (though, unfortunately, only for new customers): every single phone at Amazon Wireless sold by Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint is going for just 1 penny.

Yup, even such $299 monsters as the HTC Rezound 4G and the DROID RAZR, along with the Galaxy S II variants (including the Skyrocket) are all priced down to a cent above free.

Undeterred by the fact that the 1-click root method available for other Motorola devices doesn't work for the retail version of Verizon's Droid RAZR, the Android community has once again liberated the latest addition to the Droid family. Droid Forums is crediting Pieman13 for the find, providing an easy 5-step guide to rooting your RAZR. Before we go any further, I should encourage those unfamiliar with rooting to check out our primer on the subject here.
