Motorola Droid 4, RAZR Maxx release date updates

Verizon owners who made the bold decision not to pick up Google’s first Android 4.0 handset in the Galaxy Nexus will soon have a few other handsets to consider. The Motorola Droid 4 and Droid RAZR MAXX are both coming soon and we have a small update to give you on the current release status of both.

The Droid 4 is starting to repeat the same pattern as the Galaxy Nexus now, with a great deal of consumer interest resting in Motorola’s first 4G LTE slider. The Droid RAZR Maxx on the other hand is a different beast all together, as it combines the already-impressive Droid RAZR handset with a bigger capacity battery in which Motorola claim can last up to 21 hours on a single charge.

If you are planning to pick up the Droid 4, don’t be surprised if it becomes available at the end of this week on Thursday. We have discovered that Motorola has already started to cut the price of the Droid 3 and when something like this usually happens, it’s often the case that a manufacturer is getting ready to put new hardware on the market, and everyone will be aware and the Droid 4 is long overdue now.

Just to let you know, the Droid 3 can be bought now as little as $99 on contract with Verizon, but we see little benefit in getting one when the superior Droid 4 is about to land. As for the Droid RAZR Maxx, if battery life is important to you, you’ll want to be keeping an eye on when pre-orders become available for the device. Information posted at Droid-Life reveals that Motorola may be preparing to unleash the upgraded version of the RAZR on January 26, with the source of the information coming from Motorola’s own website via a landing page.

If you are on the lookout for a new Motorola handset, which one is the more appealing to you? A brand new slide-out Droid 4, or a Droid RAZR Maxx with arguably the best battery life on the market right now?

**CORRECTION** not a very smart move for verizon to release the 3rd and 4th generation
qwerty droids (whose specs are RADICALLY different) within months of each other.  everything that’s on
the droid 4 is what SHOULD have been on the droid 3, but of course, i’m
only speaking the obvious.  at least now we keyboard lovers get what
has been long overdue…a 4G qwerty droid.  it’s been a good run, Droid
R2D2, but your end life is near…

I  can’t wait either, I still have the original droid. It’s finally dying on me.
