Verizon To Get Another High End Motorola
Oct 16, 2006, 1:47 PM by (staff)
A Motorola PR image depicting a RAZR MAXX with a Verizon logo on it has leaked out of the company today, indicating that as with the RAZR and KRZR, Motorola is producing CDMA versions of this new high end clamshell. Although the photo appears to be a composite, Phone Scoop can confirm its authenticity. The MAXX was introduced in July as a new 3G folder with touch sensitive external music controls. The model that was originally shown off featured HSDPA, a QVGA screen, MicroSD card slot and 2 Megapixel camera. The Verizon version shown in the photo labels the camera as a 2 Megapixel autofocus model and shows a much larger flash. It is unclear whether the Verizon MAXX will inherit other features such as the QVGA screen from the UMTS version.

still no news on this bad boy
Rich/Eric, any word on an approximate release date?
ev-do rev.a network and handsets...
i guess...the reason external display is
unusually big...may be intended to make video
phone calls... much more for these
applications which demands more bandwidth...
This is for real...
seeing is believing...
QualComm™ chipset on it...so
numeric keypad boundary is a little odd...

The Verizon debates
Now everytime the great guys here post a Verizon story all the Whiners and nay sayers start in. I just sit and watch.
Jere is the deal... on the VZW UI... Vodaphone (part owner of VZW) has had a standard UI for a while. Studies have proven that it is easier for folks to adapt to a new handset when they do not have to relearn how to use it. No not all people are morons or stupid, but people in general are stupid.
I have a hard time believing that a lot of people who post here are any less so. I realize of course that this is a public forum, which I have been a part of for many m...

STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT UNIFORM UI
Motorola phones have had the same UI for what seems like the last decade....
So whether it is a Verizon phone or not... You still have to deal with Uniform UI from the manufacturer... on every single phone until they change it!!!!
THE ONLY THING I do NOT like about Verizon's UI is the crippling of the OBEX... other than that... who cares if its a uniform UI from VZW or from MOTO???
just my opinion but I know ppl will jump on this now...
Most manufacturers use a uniform UI anyway...

If they hadn't disabled stuff, it would help but it would still not be as good as an UI as the Moto UI.
If they had as good of a UI as the Moto UI then I don't think people wo...
I don't like the UI either. I don't like the phone selection either. I think Verizon could be fantastic, but they seem to be playing a waiting game to maximize profit and control. So, they leak little pieces of technology just to keep up. Given...
Dear Verizon, I hate you. Signed, A Cingular Subscriber
It used to be Verizon with the better network and Cingular with the really cool phones. Now VZW has all the cool phones and Cingular has the better network.
WOULD YOU LIKE SOME CHEESE and CRACKERS with that WHINE ?
they may have cool phones... but that VZW UI kills their functionality!!!!!
So, you wind up with a phone that looks cool but won't do crap!!!!!!!!
Enough. What about the Phone?!
Time: Verizon hasn't even started tested it yet, they just have early prototypes..it's probably a March '07 phone or later.
Functionality: It's basically a black RAZR with every but the kitchen sink. The camera is better than anything Verizon has to offer with autofocus you can zoom in up to 2-inches!!. The flash is almost too bright! The dis...
Jumping on the bandwagon
I am not a fan of MOTO, or even of Cingular, but some people on here are just getting malicious. Take it easy guys, the good thing about capitalism is that you don't have to get something if it is offered. If you don't like Verizon or the razr, by all means, find something else. Free enterprise rules.
verizon is going to be number one - then who will cingular merge with???
once that happens, cingular will probably try to find someone else to buy so they can keep saying their number one.
Add to it customer service reps that barely know how to even answe...

Please read the AWS article on the phonescoop news page. Cingular did not merge with ATT just...
Very pleased to hear...
Verizon always seems to be lagging a year behind in technology - but this sounds great.
I read on the link provided that someone heard a possible release in November, which I just dont see personally considering November is right around the corner.
Hopefully they will have it out before 2007 though, the holidays are always a good time to buy new toys ;)
