[Update: $199 ($100 Off) On Amazon] Deal Alert: Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Just $230 ($70 Off) With Contract At Wirefly

As promised, the ultra-impressive DROID RAZR MAXX went on sale today, but for a premium price of $300 with a new two-year contract at Verizon. Not so, says Wirefly, who is charging just $230 for the thin-yet-juiced phone.

What's so special about the MAXX? It's nearly the same as the DROID RAZR, but with one major difference: it's nearly 2mm thicker (for a total thickness of a still-svelte 9mm) to accommodate a whopping 3,300 mAh battery (versus 1,780 in the non-MAXX version).

Motorola Announces Q4 Earnings: Only 200k Tablets Shipped, $80m Loss

Assuming the Google/Motorola merger goes through, Google might want to rethink that whole hands-off approach to managing its new hardware company. According to Motorola's press release, the company saw a net loss of about $80 million, after $3.4 billion in revenue. It's not the worst loss in the world, but shareholders are never happy when they see red.

The tablet sales figures are bad, though. Motorola says in Q4 of 2011, it shipped 200,000 tablets.

Motorola Files New Lawsuit In Florida, Seeks Injunction Against iPhone 4S And iCloud

Adding another suit to the series of legal skirmishes falling under the overarching battle between Apple and Android Manufacturers, Motorola Mobility has filed a new lawsuit in Florida, accusing Apple of infringing on a handful of technology patents.

ICS ROM For The International Motorola RAZR (GSM) Shows Up, Gives Us The First Glimpse Of Blur In Android 4.0 (It's Not As Bad As It Sounds)

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.

Motorola Mobility Cleared Of Apple's Infringement Claims By ITC, Faces Other Battles

International Trade Commission Judge Theodore Essex decided in Washington today that Motorola Mobility did not violate three of Apple's Patents, as the Cupertino tech giant had claimed. Two of the patents related to touchscreen features, including multi touch, and a device's ability to recognize various types of manual input, like sliding and pinching gestures. The third, as Bloomberg explains, "is for a way to add components without having to run an installation program or rebooting."

This case comes as one of many in a long saga of attacks on Android for alleged patent infringement, part of an effort by Apple across four continents to prove that Android copies pieces of the iPhone's functionality.
