We liked Motorola's updated RAZR. It's crazy-thin, water-tight, and has a unique form factor. However, battery life was certainly sub-awesome. The RAZR MAXX is a little thicker, but it should keep you untethered from outlets 'till bedtime.
The RAZR MAXX promises 21 hours on a single charge. 21 hours of what? We do not know, but if it's 21 hours of LTE video streaming I will wear a dress to my next CES press conference. Your milage may vary, basically. The original Droid RAZR is the world's thinnest smartphone at just 7.1mm. The MAXX is 9mm, so it loses that super-duper thinness, but it's certainly not chubby. It's got 32GB of storage, and it'll run you $US299.99 with a new two-year contract.
You can also now get an original RAZR in purple. Because, y'know... purple is cool. That one has 16 GB on-board memory and it'll run you $US200. Finally, a phone to match my platform disco boots.
As you'd expect, no word on Australian availability yet. Stay tuned.
