Motorola RAZR HD and MAXX HD hitting Verizon October 18

Just yesterday we posted news that Motorola's DROID RAZR HD arrived in Canada for Rogers Wireless customers, and it was only a matter of time before we saw the phone arrive state-side on Verizon. Exactly one week from today, on October 18, Motorola's DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD will officially be available at Verizon stores across the US.

The DROID RAZR HD will come with 16GB of internal storage and will cost $199.99 in either black or white. The DROID RAZR MAXX HD will cost $299.99 and come with 32GB of internal storage, but will only come in black. So, just like Henry Ford once said, you can have the RAZR MAXX HD in any color you want, as long as your favorite color is black.

Both phones are practically identical save for the battery. The MAXX has a larger-capacity battery that's able to last for up to 32 hours of normal use. Both devices feature a 4.7-inch AMOLED HD display with a 1280×720 resolution. On the inside is a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Both the DROID RAZR HD and the MAXX HD are extremely thin and lightweight, thanks to the unique kevlar fiber backing on both devices, which also makes them more durable and rugid than most smartphones on the market.
