Limited Edition Red DROID RAZR MAXX Devices Start to Arrive for Verizon Employees

The limited edition, red and black DROID RAZR MAXX is now arriving in stores to Verizon employees. As reported back in February, VZW workers were given the opportunity to purchase either a 16GB regular RAZR or the 32GB MAXX at $99 and $199 respectively. Each would come with their own uniquely engraved number on the back along with the words “LIMITED EDITION” next to the Big Red logo on the front. The color scheme has also been tweaked to a pure black look with red accents on the power button and kevlar backing. After seeing the device in the wild now, I can definitively say that this is the hottest RAZR yet. Previous models with their silvers and greys look nice as well, but that black and red combination is always a winner.

These phones cannot be purchased by regular Verizon customers, unless of course you find one on eBay for some incredibly bloated price

Cheers ___!

  • Carol

    So you can’t think of any great, new features to add or improve… so you just start making the shell in random colors????


    Do I *REALLY* care if my cell phone’s shell is red, green, blue, or purple???

    the rarz is clearly THE top phone on the market today,

    • Alexander Garcia

      LOL okay slow down a bit. Now I am a happy owner of the RAZR Maxx. I absolutely LOVE this thing, BUT I can honestly say that the HTC One X and the SGS3 are the superior phones to beat right now. =P Cheers.

  • OhAaron

    Go Dawgs!

  • sgtguthrie

    Stupid! They look like garbage in my opinion. The phone is about to become outdated anyway when the Razr HD comes out. Not to mention, the restrictions that come with it for those employees…


    Next up the DROID RAZR limited edition maxx HD…meh


      The razr is worse then limited edition SB NIKE DUNKS.

          And why should i kill myself because you say so, ha your such a funny guy.

            Wow, “D” your right.

    Did Motorola dip the backside in powder?

      No, theirs is just dirty. It really does look nice

      Why is everyone so balls deep about the Nexus?

      • C-Law

        Unlockable, aosp, and a bunch of great rom choices

      • ddevito

        b/c it’s a Nexus

  • Mack

    Actually if i was going to buy a rzr maxx, I would want this one.

  • Inquizitor

    Now, to preface, I am colorblind, but I see little red on this device besides the back and the camera button. I actually like that, though, it’s like how the OG Droid just had a few gold highlights. Much nicer than a totally hot-red phone. Do the capicative buttons light up red, like the HTC devices? That would be a nice touch too.

    • LiterofCola

      Red capacitive buttons would be pretty sweet.

    • steelcity1

      You are colorblind… no wonder you think the GNex is a good camera. :-)

  • jjrudey

    That’s cool looking and all but I’d have a case on it and not be able to see any of the red anyway.

  • Sobr0801

    Looks good. The only killer for me on the Razr that held me back from buying it was the non-HD screen. Still a sharp looking phone.

    • LiterofCola

      It is a nice phone, it has just enough red accents.

  • angermeans

    I’ve been thinking about getting one so I can sell it, but I think that they are locked to employee accounts.

  • http://twitter.com/TheGoddamnVader Darth Vader

    There are already some for sale on Ebay.

    • Apostrafee

      Pretty sure they only work on employee lines

  • Liderc

    They should include a numbered apology note for how hideous that thing is.

    • BlueLetter

      “numbered apology note”
      If you’re gonna say note, then you don’t need page numbers, because notes are brief.
      And if not a brief note why wouldn’t you just say apology? You do realize that a “written apology” is a thing right?
      And if someone found the Razr hideous why would they buy one, wouldn’t that “apology note” be useless to them? Do you insist your significant other apologize to you for how ugly they are?

      When you take a jab at something, it usually helps to have that jab make sense…

      • Liderc

        I’m going to explain this but somehow I don’t think it will matter.

        I meant “note” as in #’d certificate.

        It was also a joke.

        • BlueLetter

          ….you use the word note in place of certificate…? That’s like saying “wok” when you mean “frying pan” or something…
          And yeah I get that it was a joke, point is it wasn’t a very good one. Man it’s like talking to people about Dane Cook all over again.

          • Liderc

            I said “Numbered apology note”, so yes it was close to certificate. I just woke up, give me a chance to really make fun of the Razr’s hideousness.

          • BlueLetter

            Uh to you maybe, I don’t think anyone in their right mind would understand “numbered certificate” as “note” or vice versa…
            Well you got all day to warm up, but I know from personal experience that “I just woke up” is an excuse commonly given by people who aren’t ever all that effective anyway, but I suppose here on the Internet I may finally have found the exception…

          • Liderc

            You’re still ignoring the fact that I said, “numbered apology note”, not just “note” I would agree with you if that had been the case. I just literally forgot the name certificate, being completely honest.

            I’m sure you have the Razr and I offended you well I apologize, I like to speak my opinion on the internet, even in a trollish fashion sometimes. I did wake up literally minutes before I wrote that because I went to a late night showing of the Avengers and I went to bed around 4:30am.

            So can we move past this and start our relationship again? I’d love to get to know you and maybe we could hang out on weekends?

          • BlueLetter

            Well I suppose I’ve no choice but to give you the benefit of the doubt on that one.

            And no I actually don’t own a Razr, that may change once the fighter or whatever the hell they’ll call it comes out. Why is that a prerequisite to thinking that jokes oughta be well constructed if not at least funny? Cause if it is, well hell I’ll splurge on one for full price right now!

            And of course we can hang out!! I mean I’m sure like all the other galaxy nexus owners/fans on droid-life you’re a swell guy, not at all as intollerable to be around as a swarm of locusts or anything. Furthermore history teaches us that people who wake up and decide the first thing they do for the day is get negative on a blog are real winners. Yup, you sir sound just like the kind of person I wanna associate with!

          • Liderc

            Now you’re just being mean =P

          • Liderc

            Looking at your past posts, I now realize you’re a massive troll. I don’t think I want to be friends =x

          • BlueLetter

            Hey it takes a troll to know a troll. Only difference is your bridge has a crap-ton of Nexus pinups on it.

          • Liderc

            My bridge also has an OG sitting under it for 2 years, which I loved. I can’t like a manufacturer until they screw up?

          • BlueLetter

            You can, just like I can, although I disagree with your opinion in this case. And today I chose to tell you that that joke was awful regardless of whatever excuse you have for it.
            However, having a Droid ((stop calling it OG, that’s just silly. “Original Gangsta” isn’t a term appropriate to a piece of electronics, and before you start that’s definitely what OG stands for. It has been for ages. No one abbreviates one word by capitalizing 2 letters from it.)) doesn’t render you immune from being a troll. It isn’t dependent on what you’ve done, it’s what you’re doing. And waking up and making a b-line towards a post about a device you know you’re not interested in just to talk crap, like you’ve been doing since before the Razr even came out I imagine, is definitely something trolls, shills, and fanboys do.

            So I guess you might not be a troll, but you’re definitely a fanboy and/or a shill, and hey you started this name calling business :P.
            EDIT: And if you weren’t a troll, I could expect to go to a Motorola related post one of these days and expect to not see you chiming in with your .02, but we both know that doesn’t happen…

          • Liderc

            I made a joke, you wrote an essay about it.

            Who’s the bigger loser?

          • BlueLetter

            Oh I’m sorry little man, did I hit too close to home?

            You wake up and look for things to badmouth, get defensive and make excuses when I explain to you that your jokes are poop, then resort to calling me a “troll” and I’m the loser? Well I’ll be losing lots of sleep over this…I just hope all those sleepless nights don’t leave me with your sense of humor.

            EDIT: if I were you I think I’d dodge writing more than 3 lines at a time as well, Mr. “numbered apology note”

          • Liderc

            I didn’t make up the acronym OG to reference the original droid, I just use it because people understand it’s the original droid instead of saying I had the Droid, which could mean 10 different phones.

          • BlueLetter

            I know it wasn’t you, but you just so happened to be the first one I saw do it today, sucks for you I guess 😛
            And lets be real here, every other Droid has a second name. The Droid Charge, the Droid Incredible, the Droid Bionic etc…no one on this friggen blog is gonna confuse the Droid with any other phone just because you don’t explicitly state in someway that you’re referring to the A855. You know why? because no one has ever referred to any other droid as “the Droid”

          • thatdroidguy

            wow whats up your butt? someone cant voice their opinion? yes opinions are like butts everyone got but you have to act like one…..i am a moto guy to the end….i still use my og droid, droid x, droid pro and my wifi xoom, but even u can say that moto always arrive to the party late….they only update when they have to. Why was the DX2 a let down, or even the bionic was a bummer….why would release a phones successor two months later? can u say late to the specs party…..now they are going to wear out the Razor brand name..the og razor was the reason i started my personal boycott due being not to my liking, until the og droid arrived.
            i will not give a penny to Samsung and their galaxy line nor moto’s razor line…..does that make me wrong no…why cuz it my decision and money…so chill even if you dont agree, its their money and opinion not yours.

          • BlueLetter

            You’re assuming I disagree with his opinion based on whats now? It was an awful joke, end of story skippy. I don’t have to disagree with the sentiment to take issue with it do I? Make your jokes funny or don’t make them at all. And certainly never put the phrase “numbered certificate apology” in them.
            Stop reading between lines that aren’t there…

            i wasnt reading between any lines, just saying stop being an ass! you always got negative crap to say!

            And you may not see the importance, but I happen to be ok with the language I speak, and I’m a big fan of comedy. So excuse me if I take issue with phrases that are redundant/don’t make sense and jokes that aren’t funny.

    I’m betting any of their employees that know much about what they are selling already have a Galaxy Nexus or… well, anything that doesn’t have a Motorola logo. ‘Luckily’ for Verizon/Motorola in this case, most of their employees DON’T know anything about what they are selling…

      where do people like you come from? I mean I like my Nexus but its nothing to get on a damn high horse about.

      • LiterofCola

        Oh, you’re new to Droid Life?

    • jak_341

      I laugh at peope who actualy BUY a Motorola device. Unless it is your phone Android phone, there really is no excuse for not buying a Nexus. It is the flagship of the Android line with no equal. Even the SGIII isn’t going to surpass it.

      • http://fujibayashi.jp/ Gasai Yuno

        Well, at least, HTC One X surpassed it.

      • hkklife

        The SGIII has a far better camera, a bigger screen, bigger standard battery, and expandable storage. Sounds like that at least puts it at parity with, if not surpassing the GNex, as long as you can live with Touchwiz.

        • angermeans

          That’s a 100% subjective. To me the software keys, curved display, and no touchwiz def trumps the gs3. Especially since the specs are almost identical. Not to mention I wouldn’t want a bigger screen as the nexus is pushing it as it is an it will have better pixel density. I wasn’t impressed with the gs3, but then again I’m not very excited about skinned devices in general and planned on keeping my nexus until another comes out.

      • pappy53

        At least Motorola users can make calls without dropping them.

      There are employees that may not know as much as some people on here. But most of the employees in retail that actually work with these devices every day know far more than you think. I have a Nexus but I still picked one up because I can…
      Do people accuse you of knowing very little about what you do for a living too?

    not that special

  • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

    I’m waiting for the Razr MAXX HD. It’s very possible that’ll be my next phone.

    • hkklife

      Me too…IF the damn thing is ever announced or officially released!
      With each passing day its rumored specs become less special and Moto is the last company to the party with not a single new device shipping with ICS from the factory or with an official update available on any device from any carrier (Xoom wi-fi doesn’t count). Not an encouraging sign for the company’s commitment to Android or even to being an independent entity in the long-term IMO.
      1.5Ghz Snapdragon is just on par with everything else not these days. 4.6″ 720p ends up being weaker than the Gnex, HTC One X/EVO LTE and the GSIII. Now, don’t get me wrong, I adore Moto’s radios, battery, port selection, and build quality. But I am really not very fond at all of the RAZR formfactor–it’s going to be used to death by Moto (just like the OG RAZR flipphone), I’d rather have a removable battery even with more thickness (Samsung can do it!), and most significantly, the current RAZR is too wide and not very comfortable to hold in the hand.

      • BlueLetter

        Complain when they make new devices. Complain when they make new devices that don’t come out soon after the most recent devices…smh
        And how is a 1.5ghz S4 chip not on par with everything else….when everything else will pretty much be using that same chip? Some guy just wrote an article stating he though 4.8″ is too big, the Nexus is 4.65″, and the One X is 4.7″ but 4.6″ is…bad?
        I dunno about you, but the Razr’s width is no problem for my hands at all, but thats relative of course.

        • hkklife

          To clarify, I meant that Moto’s using the same SoC as HTC and Samsung because it’s so LTE-friendly. That’s not a BAD thing by any means, just an abrupt departure from their previous years with TI. And a big departure from 2010 when the Droid X and D2Global were arguably the fastest CPU phones out there at the time of their release. I figured a Tegra 3 + LTE was wishful thinking (though I’d love to be able to play all these Tegra-exclusive games!) but I was honestly really hoping was for the RAZR HD to be the first to debut something new from TI instead of merely playing catch-up with the HTC & Samsung.

          As far as the screen size, I think that for devices with screens smaller than the GSIII, onscreen virtual buttons gobble up too much of your usable screen real estate. I’d rather see the RAZR HD’s 4.6″ screen have capacitive or physical buttons under it and Samsung have virtual buttons on their 4.8″ phone. The excess bezel on the RAZR bothers me quite a bit and I don’t see that addressed in the HD.

          The comments above about Moto’s attentions being focused on China are probably a good indicator of where they are going to end up in a year’s time (purchased by Huawei).

          • BlueLetter

            Tegra chips aren’t anything special compared to the S4 and don’t have LTE yet. They certainly aren’t going to start buying Exynos chips from Samsung. The S4 is almost literally the only game in town since by the OMAP5 won’t be ready for at least another quarter…

            And Samsung most certainly DOES NOT have virtual buttons, go check again. Granted I don’t like virtual keys either but that isn’t because they aren’t usable.

            And I already addressed this on that other blog but chances are you haven’t seen it. There’s no way in hell Moto’s getting sold to Huawei, you know why? Because they’re still regarded as a possible security risk, the government certainly isn’t going to ok a sale to them until they do something about that.
            Then there’s this article http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20120413PD205.html
            And this one http://technorati.com/business/article/google-motorola-chinese-whispers-and-puzzles/

        • LiterofCola

          Agree on the last part. People who complain about the Razr’s width, aren’t the ones that use one everyday. It’s nowhere near as wide as people are griping about.

      • angermeans

        The Razr and all of the motos phones lately are dog ugly. The hd screen should have been in the first or even second iteration. Thy are milking their fans to death. Not to mention the hd Razr is just playing mere catch up and I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t launch with ICS. I wouldnt buy a Moto device at this point. There future is so up in the air. Even google is rumored to be looking for a buyer and the interested parties don’t even make phone for America. That means no support what so ever (then again how is that different than how it is now) that’s not very promising. Motorola is about dead.

        • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

          The version of the Razr Maxx HD in China has ICS, I believe (it has onscreen buttons), so it’s reasonable to assume the US/international version (the version I may or may not buy, since I live in the UK) will do too.

    • http://www.twitter.com/slinky317 slinky317

      Yeah, but then you’ll be wanting to trade it for the inevitable Droid RAZR MAXX HD MAXX. It’s a vicious cycle.

    • C-Law

      This device interests me as well but wouldn’t it be hilarious if moto introduced the droid razr hd first, then a few months later they introduced the droid razr hd maxx?
