DROID MAXX keeps the kevlar, Motorola stays rugged

DROID MAXX keeps the kevlar, Motorola stays rugged

Have no worries about the upcoming collection of DROID devices from Verizon being just as hardcore as the previous set. With yet another set of images appearing today of the devices - or at least the largest of the three - we're to understand that kevlar patterning continues to be in order. What's more, it would appear that the area around back-facing camera's lens brings more ruggedness than ever before, texture and all.

Verizon event July 23rd: DROID reboot on tap

It's time again for Verizon to bring the re-up - an event has been scheduled for the 23rd of July, 2013 likely set for a set of new DROID devices. What we've seen in leaks thus far suggests updates to the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, RAZR HD MAXX, and RAZR M devices, each of them coming in with a bit less "RAZR" to their name and a bit more on the DROID side - brand-wise.

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD hands-on vs RAZR HD

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD hands-on vs RAZR HD

Verizon has been granted a couple more smartphones from the likes of Motorola and Google here with the massive battery-toting DROID RAZR MAXX HD right alongside its near-identical brother the RAZR HD (without so much MAXX). The difference between these two devices is just about as slight as it could possibly get - the MAXX has twice the internal storage (32GB instead of 16) and a giant 3,300mAh battery instead of the 2,530mAh unit the standard HD has. The weight and thickness are absolutely negligible - even when you've got them both in your hands it's difficult to guess which is which, believe it or not.

Motorola RAZR HD coming soon

There's no denying that Motorola has stuck to their guns when they said that the RAZR was a hero for them and that they'd be staying the name for some time to come as this week we're seeing a 720p version called the RAZR HD hit the wild. A couple of photos have been seen over in China at Gfan where this Motorola RAZR HD will be bringing not just 720p, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. Can we expect this titan to hit Verizon just like its predecessors over the past few months?

Droid RAZR MAXX is a slap in consumer faces

Droid RAZR MAXX is a slap in consumer faces

When the original Droid RAZR was released, we were there at the launch event in New York City to see how serious both Motorola and Verizon were about bringing a new era to their combined forces for Droid - now that the next version is out not even a half a year later, I've got to question their logic. What sense did it make to release a device which was amongst the thinnest smartphones in the world if the battery inside it wasn't going to be equitable in excellence? Of course the answer is that there'd be a marketing scheme several months after the release in which the thinness was no longer the coolest factor, the RAZR MAXX having a battery that should very well blow consumers away.
