Motorola Droid Razr Maxx was the only smartphone which surprised everyone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 in Las Vegas. The reason was its powerful specs as well as the beefy 3300 mAh battery. This handset was first launched exclusively for the Verizon customers in the US. Later, Motorola announced the GSM variant of this handset for the European And Asian countries. The GSM version is called as the ‘Motorola Razr Maxx’.
This handset runs on the old Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System. Verizon customers will finally get the much-awaited Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update starting next week. However, it might take some time for the update to be available for international GSM variant. Motorola Raxr Maxx offers continuous talk-time of more than 18 hours straight on a single charge, thanks to the 3300 mAh battery.
The GSM variant of this handset already went on sale in most of the European and Asian countries. Sadly, the folks living in India were left behind.
