Verizon Tempts Employees With Limited Edition Droid RAZRs

A life spent caught up in the drudgery of retail is usually pretty free of frills, but Verizon Wireless employees may soon be getting a shot at some swanky hardware if some newly-leaked images hold true. According to Android And Me, Verizon has reached out to their employees with an offer they may not be able to refuse: limited edition Droid RAZRs and Droid RAZR MAXXs.

And what’s so limited about these edition then? The employee-only Droid RAZR sports a red and black finish on its backside rather than the monochrome stylings of its more mundane brethren, along with the device’s number within the production run.

Meanwhile, the device’s front sports a “limited edition” engraving just so no one mistakes it for a more pedestrian device. Just to sweeten the pot, Verizon is also throwing in a free multimedia dock for any employee willing to take the bait.

Not a bad deal at all, especially considering the supposed price tags involved: employees will be able to snag a limited edition 16GB Droid RAZR for a scant $99, while a similarly tricked out MAXX will set them back $199.

No word on how big the production runs are or when they’ll be released, but I wouldn’t be surprised if all of these highfaluting handsets get snapped up in a hurry. Even so, I give it about 20 minutes before the first few enterprising Verizon employees try to flip their new toys for a profit on eBay or Craiglist, so the mobile collectors among you may want to keep yours eyes peeled.
