Motorola RAZR Maxx on sale in the UK next month

Motorola RAZR Maxx on sale in the UK next monthMotorola may be owned by Google these days, but rival Android OEMs have been far busier lately when it comes to the minor matter of, y'know, releasing new phones and stuff.

But wait – Moto's been holding back on us. Turns out next month will see us treated to the RAZR Maxx, which boasts the longest battery life of any Android phone on the market.

We're talking a talk time of 17.6 hours on 3G, which is quite an improvement on the standard RAZR's 10 hours. And despite the battery's whopping 3,300mAh capacity it still only raises the handset's profile from 7.1mm to 8.99mm (that 1/100th of a millimetre is all important, naturally).

Elsewhere it's got a 4.3in Super AMOLED display running at 540 x 960, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor backed by 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera, along with kevlar shell and Gorilla Glass screen – in other words, it's a Motorola RAZR.

There's nothing specific at this stage beyond confirmation that the RAZR Maxx – already on sale (as the Droid RAZR Maxx) in the US – will be landing in Europe and the Middle East in May, but we'll keep an ear out for further info.

Anything without that Sense clock on the homescreen looks acceptable.
But for that silly Kevlar spiel I shall ignore the device...

I am so excited! An 8 month old phone, no 4G, pentile display and software from 2010! Sounds like a winner to me

the razr is almost 8 months old, but this is only 3 months old, tops.

interested to see how this fares as a GSM handset, without the LTE drain to the battery.
