Ahead Of Droid Razr HD Launch, Verizon Slashes Prices Of Motorola’s Droid Smartphones

Motorola has a big push coming. We have an invite for September 5 to a some secret event, and even more evidence of a Droid Razr HD has hit the web, confirming that Google’s mobile hardware team is ready to go toe-to-toe with the Samsung Galaxy S III in a couple of weeks.

And just as the iPhone price gets slashed before the next-gen model hits the market, so shall Verizon cut the prices of all of its Motorola “Droid” branded handsets, including the Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx, and Droid 4.

Currently, the Razr Maxx is listed for $199 on Verizon’s website, while the Razr and the Droid 4 are going for $99. This is compared to their original pricing of $299 each for the Razr and Razr Maxx, and $199 for the Droid 4. It’s worth noting that this isn’t just a temporary sale — these are the devices’ new going rates, which leaves room for something shiny and new to occupy Verizon’s top tier.

The Droid line is far and away Motorola’s most successful smartphone line to date. We loved both of the Razrs, with obvious partiality toward the Maxx thanks to that huge 3300mAh battery. The Droid 4, on the other hand, has an excellent keyboard for those looking to move away from BlackBerry or simply prefer hitting physical buttons.

In any case, if you’re looking to get a nice handset on the cheap and don’t plan on waiting for the new iPhone or Droid Razr HD, we recommend heading over to Verizon and taking advantage of these deals.
