Motorola confirms RAZR Maxx for mid-May UK launch

Motorola confirms RAZR Maxx for mid-May UK launchMotorola tends to be one of the bigger culprits when it comes to launching new mobile devices in the US and then taking forever to realise that the rest of the world does in fact exist and wouldn't mind getting the chance to give its products a whirl.

But we're happy to report that the Motorola RAZR Maxx and its humungous battery will be weighing down the shelves at your nearest phonemonger from the middle of next month – exactly when Moto promised it would be.

The RAZR Maxx takes its name from the whopping great 3,300mAh battery Motorola has managed to wedge into its otherwise slender profile, which should prove enough for upwards of 17 hours of nattering away via 3G.

That's a whole lot of talktime, and while the oversized cell does add to the RAZR Maxx's profile, it still comes in at just 8.99mm thick.

Elsewhere it's pretty much identical to the conventional RAZR, with its 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3in AMOLED display and 8-megapixel camera. No sign of Android Ice Cream Sandwich, though – you're stuck with Gingerbread for now, with no clear indication as to when that might chance.

Still, if you fancy one, you can pre-order now and commit £430 of your hard-earned ahead of the handset officially going on sale in mid-May.

Can't say why, but those are the least appealing PR photos evah... They look like screenshots from a 90s video game, motoroloa :p

The hefty battery makes it tempting, but not at that price.
Shape reminds me slightly of that ugly nokia you said was decent Jan

What is wrong with Motorola and their Europe devision. I might have got this at £439 back when it launched in the USA like 5 years ago. Now its pointless. Motorola always do this with their phones. They release them late in the uk at a high price and never support them. No wonder the majority of carriers no longer sell Motorola phones anymore. And despite my love for how well built and how good the sound quality is i can happily say i will never buy another motorola phone again.

..... unless its pretty :p
