Motorola has given its flagship handset, the Razr, a spec boost in the form of the Maxx which features double the memory of the original handset and a bigger 21 hour capable battery. The 32 GB Maxx retains the super slim 8.99 mm of the Razr lineup and is keeps the same diagonal corner approach to design. 

The Maxx is set to appear on Verizon only for the meantime alongside a special purple version of the original Razr. The Maxx will be priced in at $299 with the purple Razr costin $199. No specific release date yet for the phones apart from what Verizon says will be 'in the coming weeks'.

Slightly detracting from the Maxx's well ... max approach to things, is the lack of a preloaded build of Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone like the Razr will ship with Gingerbread on board and will be updated later by the handset manufacturer. 

Not a lot else to say about the Maxx other than it simply being a spec boost to an already rather specced out phone. We will have more on the handset once we have had a chance to play with it proper.

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
