Oscar Nominees Receive Special Edition Red Carpet DROID RAZR MAXX, You Can Win One Too

Motorola – as they did last year with the XOOM – will hand out special edition DROID RAZR MAXX (our review) devices to select Oscar nominees this weekend. The limited version will come in red (get it, red carpet?) and pack all of the 3300mAh juice that the normal RAZR MAXX has. The female recipients will take home this special RAZR in a gold and “glamorous” sequined pouch while the boys will receive a shaving kit (how clever).

If you want to take one home for yourself though, Motorola will kick off a Twitter contest this Thursday (February 23). Five (5) of you will walk away as the proud owner of a red RAZR MAXX. Follow them on Twitter for details.

    I actually have one with the bluetooth it came with if anyone is interested.. doesnt come with the clutch. im selling it because im on at&t not verizon

    • Buckets

      Is it the red carpet version?

  • Jb

    i actually picked up some barber stuff i needed today and forgot to get one of those brushes so maybe i’ll just win one with that Razr instead of going back to buy one. 

  • MKader17

    Does this count as Moto releasing another phone for this year?

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    The droid RAZR..the RAZR MAXX..the droid RAZR developer edition…the limited edition RAZR..the red carpet droid RAZR MAXX…and hell the droid 4 might as well be a RAZR too….WTF moto? I thought they were gonna stop releasing so many devices?

    • kixofmyg0t

      Dude calm down, you can only buy 2 of them. The RAZR and RAZR MAXX…and theyre the same damn phone just one has a bigger battery. Thats 2 fricken phones. 


  • BradPitt

    I win an oscar and all I get is a lousy locked bootloader running Gingerbread?

    Moto can use that shaving kit on my ass

    • TC Infantino

      Hey Brad, tell Angelina to 1) Stop trying to adopt entire 3rd world countries, and 2) Eat something, she looks like a skeleton with skin on it and big lips. 

  • Rrciii7

    I really don’t know what it is with the razr? I walked into a Verizon store last night, took one look at the screen and nearly choked. I looked at the galaxy nexus too… I look at my screen WAY more than I would care about the thickness of the phone. I bought the rezound… How is it that this phone is so over looked? The screen is ridiculous and the phone flys as soon as it does the initial firmware update…

    • Jim McClain

      thats one of those 99 dollar phones right ?

      • Phonenix3265

        Exactly! such a great price for such a great phone. Usually you have to pay $200 for a phone like that, it’s a good buy no mater how you slice it.

    • MKader17

      Not sure why it get’s looked over as well. I would definitely get it over the Razr.

    • TC Infantino

      I agree, I love my Rezound.  But I did take a good while to compare it with the Razr, and also the G-Nex.  I think they are all good phones, and I would recommend my friends to check out each of them before making a decision.  For me the Rezound was the best choice, but each person has their own personal tastes and should choose what they would like.

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    The guy who tried selling his big red limited edition RAZR will probably say he has this phone for sale too haha

  • KRS_Won

    High end RAZR shaving kit. Lulz

  •  Such hostility, when none of you are even going to get one.  Don’t like Moto? Don’t buy Moto. Own a Gnex? good for you, but nobody cares   Is it necessary to bash it every
    time they release “new” versions of the same phone?  It’s going to keep happening so, just accept it.  No need to tell Moto to “stop it”, because you don’t sit in their board meetings so your words will have little meaning (if any).  Seriously, I read these comments and most of them are from people who seem to have a personal stake in what Moto does, as if they (Moto) purposely do these things to piss them off.  By the way, I am not a fan of this shotgun approach either so don’t go on about how any of you may think I am some Moto fanboy, because I am not. 

    • Jim McClain

      they are just a bunch of kids, hey I have a gnex and the razr maxx is a better phone

      • I read the Droid-Life review, and it seems like Kellex agrees.

        “The DROID RAZR MAXX is my favorite Motorola phone to date. Actually, it’s pushing the Galaxy Nexus as my favorite Android phone period”

        Quoted from his review:  http://www.droid-life.com/2012/01/30/droid-razr-maxx-review-verizon/

        • Jim McClain

          well i like ics and the feel of the nexus, but it just has so many problems, the razr works, and has a killer battery too

          • MKader17

            THEN GO GET THE razr maxx AND STOP COMPLAINING!!!

      • MKader17

        Says the guy who bitches about his own phone and won’t just go get a RAZR MAXX so he can feel satisfied and stop posting winy garbage.

      • TC Infantino

        I like the Razr Maxx too, though I wouldn’t take a stand that it is better or worse than the G-Nex because I have not used either for an extended period of time, just played with them at the VZW store.  It would be very cool if Moto took the best features of both phones and combined them into a superbeast of a phone.  Just imagine a phone with Moto’s solid build quality, great radios, 8mp or higher camera with the G-nex zero shutter lag, HD screen at 16:9 ratio, 32gb internal memory plus external SD card, NFC, 1.5ghz dual core processor, ICS with or without Blur, and to top it off and unlockable bootloader.  I know Moto could do this, just wish they Would.

  • nightscout13

    F*ck Twitter. The only reason the the contest is on twitter, is so that they can steal your private data, and address book.

  • Jim McClain

    If I had it ,the first thing I would do is deactivate my nexus and use it for a door stop

    • MKader17

      Why would you deactivate your Nexus before you used the RAZR MAXX as a door stop?

  • Does anyone else see history repeating itself here? The name itself RAZR is even involved again.

    • nightscout13

      Captain Obvious to the rescue!

  • Talk about GARBAGE…. Another TWITTER Contest…

  • KRS_Won

    Zomg! Wth!? Does the Oscar version come with an unlocked boot loader? You couldn’t pay me to walk up the red carpet with Angelina Jolie to own a classic Moto fail. I bet the battery won’t even last the entire time I stream it over MotoCast. Smart Actions should turn off Crap Blur after midnight and turn on pure Ice Cream Sandwich, the way their parent company intended. Worthless.
    How many versions of the RAZR do we need Motorola? The original flip phone, DROID Razr, DROID Razr White, DROID Razr Purple, Razr MAXX, DROID 4 that looks like a DROID Razr with a keyboard, Razr Dev Edition, Razr Limited Edition Employees Only, Razr Red Carpet Edition!?!? This is why I can’t get updates before Samsung, LG, Casio, Sony, and HTC!! I’m never owning another Droid again! Samsung is still supporting two year old phone with upgrades to Froyo!! And I can’t get ICS on my Citrus yet! FAIL FAIL FAIL.

    s/eriously bro,u mad? If it doesn’t pertain or interest you, go watch porn on Chrome Beta.

    • Paul

      It’s just another color, wow.

      • Kyle Fullmer

        Everyone knows that the more colors and different sized batteries are released the more phones moto has to make updates for.  I pity the fool who tries to flash the Droid Razr Maxx update on a Droid Razr White.

        • KRS_Won

          +1 for I pity the fool

        • Liderc

          Technically they would use the same OTA, so shouldn’t be a big deal.  But I agree that Moto is spreading itself very thin, they’re going to get way behind once they release their next really “new” phone if the Razr hasn’t seen ICS by then.

      • KRS_Won

        Another color with an unlocked bootloader. And where is my DROID Razr MAXX 2 HD in Salmon with ICS that was leaked yesterday? It’s been over 20 days since the MAXX was released, I demand a new version!

  • Jim McClain

    id love to have it,just think,amazing battery on a phone that works

  • Awesome Sauce

    Hopefully they will be donated by the “celebrities” to a charity to be auctioned or used by people who cant afford cell phones.  Razr Maxx’s arent cool Motorola!!  “Celebrities” dont want that crap.

    • DroidTruth

      hey now let’s not go calling them crap now. This thing is mighty fine for someone who wants to make the most out of their smartphone without having to worry about looking for a charger.

    • KRS_Won

      If the celebrities donated for an auction, most likely they would go way beyond the $2250 like the one on eBay.
      …depending on the celeb.

  • DroidGuy?

    I hate to say this but these celebrities probably won’t care for it since it’s not an *phone

    • Josh Groff

      There are celebrities with brains as well as the iClones.

      • DroidTruth


  • I’ll give it a shot I guess… my DX with the old battery isn’t cutting it much anymore 

  • Oh crap! It’s a different color with a gender specific bag of garbage, it must be an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PHONE!!!! Quickly everyone let’s complain about it like we really give a damn!

  • I would enter to win one because the only way im ever getting moto crap again is if its free lol.

    • Loki

      The good celebs give it to their assistants and house keepers, some sell it for charity and will sign them. Once in a while stuff pops up autographed on ebay from celebs for their charities, so keep an eye on ebay the week following the awards.

  • EC8CH


  • Matthew Rosidivito

    It amazes me how people think that incredibly rich people need free stuff.

    •  I came in here to post exactly this

    • Alexander Garcia

      I was just thinkin’ that.

      • kretz7

        No one cares what phone you have, but for some reason people care about what phone brangelina have. [email protected]:disqus 

    • DroidTruth

      For this phone it’s clearly for exposure. Celebrity, “I got this Moto Razr phone for winning an Oscar and I love it”. Average consumer, “If this celebrity has this phone and likes it then I’ll like it. I’m going to Verizon to buy the Moto Razr”.

  • James_Kernicky

    Doesn’t matter, all of the celebrities will still use i*hones

  • huskerhog

    I wanna.

  • ddevito

    Motorola’s been stretching the Droid brand name out like a two dollar whore on pay day

    • Weebeethem

      So has Samsung with the Galaxy brand.

      I own a GNEX btw 🙂

    • Alexander Garcia

      One word… “Galaxy”

      • Josh Groff

        Sensation would like a word with Galaxy.

    • +1 for your profile pic.

  • tbaybe

    thats sexy right there
