Motorola is keenly aware that for some power users, the standard 1600 mAh battery found in most smartphones just doesn't cut it. The DROID RAZR_MAXX comes to your rescue, with its 3300 mAh battery. An excited booth attendant told us you could watch eight HD movies on a single charge. That translates into 21 hours of talk time.
The larger battery adds about 2 mm to the standard RAZR, putting the MAXX at 9 mm thick (about a third of an inch), which is still a good bit thinner than most of the smartphones that we carry around today. Other than that, specs look pretty much the same as the standard RAZR's--except the price. The MAXX will run you $299.99 with a two year agreement from Verizon.
