New, 38 comments

Motorola's Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD phones have finally gotten a US launch date. A day after going on sale in Canada, the 4.7-inch Android 4.0 phones are officially set to arrive on Verizon October 18th. On the standard two-year contract, the RAZR HD will sell for $199.99 and the Maxx HD for $299.99, and they'll be launching together, unlike the staggered original Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx. As before, the two versions of Motorola's flagship are virtually identical, except for a significantly larger battery and double the internal storage on the Maxx HD. Despite Motorola's acquisition by Google, neither version will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but they're slated for an update. The smaller Droid RAZR M, announced at the same time as the RAZR HD, has been available since last month.
