After the successful launch of the RAZR MAXX with a massive 3300mAh battery pack, Motorola announced the addition of Android Ice Cream Sandwich for the smartphone and it’s predecessor RAZR. The release date is due for the end of the second quarter, said a VP from Motorola.
Andrew Morely, Vice President of Marketing for Europe, justified at a UK press event the introduction of a larger battery along with the much-talked about Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0. The wise move comes at a point when the general worldwide opinion is that smartphones don’t last till the end of the day.
“Extensive research of smartphone users conducted by the company has revealed that a longer battery life is the biggest selling point of a smartphone”, said Morely in the press event. The research claimed that 75 per cent of the users wanted a longer lasting battery.
The Motorola RAZR MAXX sports a huge 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a powerful dual core 1.2GHz processor and a beefed up 3300mAh battery which can last an astonishing 17.6 hours of talktime. The standby time is almost a month, a Gorilla Glass to protect the display screen and a KEVLAR backplate to make it a sturdy smartphone.
The much-hyped Ice Cream Sandwich is the Android 4.0 OS with easy multitasking, customizable home screens, deep interactivity, rich notifications and resizable widgets which together build for a powerful new way of sharing and communication. The new RAZR MAXX is expected to compete against Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S3.
