Im just curious with this new andriod phone breaking the long standing $200 dollar mark who would pay the extra 100 for the maxx hd vs normal razr hd.? i might be tempted if i was going the razr path...

The phone world is rapidly breaking down into price points separated by $100. Taking into context the RAZR M, RAZR HD and RAZR HD MAXX, MOT has the $99, $199 and $299 price points covered.

Using Apple's pricing strategy of double the memory costs $100 more (i.e. 16GB iPhone @ $199 subsidized price; 32GB @$299), the fact that the RAZR HD -> RAZR HD MAXX nets a doubling of RAM and a bigger battery looks like a bargain.

Given the success of the RAZR MAXX, I think there will be healthy sales of the HD MAXX, especially since MOT's advertising campaign (at least in airports) is leaning heavily on battery life as a differentiator.

I would. Just for the battery life. I'll tell you - theres nothing more annoying than getting home at night after a long day (of moderate use) and only being able to use your phone for 20 - 30 mins before it's dead. I hate that. This phone would solve that for me.

I might, if the battery lives up to specs. Still, if you've been watching these things for any length of time, you know that you can almost always find a discount somewhere if you look hard enough and wait long enough. If these phones drop at the end of this month, they'll be discounted within a month or two, maybe less if you order from a place like Amazon.
