Verizon Mass Emails DROID RAZR MAXX HD Ad, Uses Wrong Phone

That is not the DROID RAZR MAXX HD.

Update:  Verizon’s Photoshop guru fixed the ad. Thankfully, we got a few good laughs out of it. 

Cheers Shane!

    lost planet 2? is there an android version?

    • Abe Lincoln

      That was the first thing I noticed too… and interestingly enough, the last I heard it was going to be a Tegra 3 game which (correct me if I’m wrong) the MAXX HD is not.

    $15.5B last quarter and they don’t even know what they’re trying to sell.

  • schoat333

    At least its a RAZR. At this point, I’d give them credit for just getting the manufacturer correct.

  • Tony

    Did they hire someone from Mobile Bloom?

  • Paul

    Not even the right color…

    Why are they sending me this e-mail when I’m not eligible for re-up for another 10 months?

    • moelsen8

      what’s more annoying is when you log into your account and get the iphone 5 popups, not to mention to the “Buy An iPhone 5″ button that permanently sits on the first page.

  • Chuck Finley

    Just took a look at that email (I had deleted it since those emails always come out the SAME DAY THAT THE FREAKIN’ PHONE IS RELEASED!)…

    ..But anyway, how long have they been promoting the “Simultaneous Voice and Data” feature?

    • Verizon

      Since the iPhone 5 can’t do it.

      • kixofmyg0t

        Over LTE….. The HD doesn’t even need LTE to do it.

          Thank Qualcomm and their processor-modem combos for it. :)

    • kixofmyg0t

      The HD can do simultaneous voice AND data over CDMA 3G, which only a handful of other Android phones can do.

  • JoshGroff

    Seems legit.

  • guyinmass

    I am still waiting to be notified that the Galaxy Nexus is available from Verizon

    • Sirx

      *Burn!*

      • michael arazan

        I actually got the email, you had to subscribe to it though to be notified when it released. Surprised they didn’t charge me for the notification.

  • bull3964

    You cropped out the best part of the picture.

    In the lower left, they have both the Razr HD and Razr HD MAXX. The Razr HD is of a white one and is the correct phone, but leaning up against is is the “Razr HD MAXX” which is clearly the first Razr MAXX.

  • Aaron Fredricks

    wow. way to have respect for your new flagship…
    moto/vzw basement baby #2 in the making.

  • kaufkin

    That is Not the Droid they were looking for… (sorry, had to go there)

    • Ubi2447

      xD
      Oh contraire. Thank you for going there.

  • bogy25

    Has anyone held this device – what’s it like? Need a review please!

  • Roberto Taylor

    Not surprising… sadly enough, nobody but us would know the difference…lol

    • KleenDroid

      I agree… they know that they could put up a pic of just about any phone…..

  • Greyhame

    These are the same people that claim they don’t want to be referred to as “dumb pipes” .. <ffacepalm

  • justincase_2008

    God i wish i works at there design firm. Dead lines would be so easy. “CRAP i got 5 minutes before this has to go out. *Grabs random phone psd file. BAM done! No one will notice LOL.”

    • Mike

      Yeah, it’s to bad you don’t work they’re…

      • JustTrollin69

        Yea, their pretty cool people.

        • Greyhame

          Haha, I see what you did THERE.

      • schoat333

        facepalm….

  • KreeTerry

    Lulz, then they use the right phone for the white one and then right beside it they use the original black razr

  • MikeSaver

    Verizon sucks so much bums

  • RumbaCembe

    After being consistently being bent over a desk by Verizon, I expect better from them

    • Southrncomfortjm

      Yep. At least dinner and a movie first.

  • http://twitter.com/A2Eric Eric S

    I went to open the email (don’t know why- will never buy one) and it was completely blank.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      I had to scroll down about 100 lines to see it. Top half was blank, actual email embedded way low.

      • http://twitter.com/Craigboy Craig Boyte

        It was the same for me

    • hfoster52

      It was building suspense for us all…..

      I thought I was just me and Firefox… Now I checked Chrome, IE.. Of course they were all the same.

  • http://randomphantasmagoria.com/ Shawn

    Is that a DROID 4? hahahaha This just made my day.

  • collinjw51

    haha idiots

  • http://twitter.com/John_M_Scott96 John Scott

    Fail!

  • randompsychology

    Wow. With the money Verizon makes hand over fist, you’d think they could hire some decent marketing folks.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Their email marketing team is clearly not “powering through.”

  • Travis Shepherd

    Looks like Moto fails where no one else fails.

    • http://twitter.com/asten77 Asten

      Uh, this is a Verizon ad, not a Motorola ad. Looks like you fail.

    • JoshGroff

      Verizon mass email. What part of that screams Motorola screwed up? Maybe you should read before posting.
