Motorola Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD To Hit Verizon Stores October 18

Verizon has officially announced the release of the Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD on October 18. That’s a Thursday.

At the beginning of September, Motorola took the stage announcing the first phones completely under the helm of Google. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt even made a little speech. We met the Droid Razr HD, Droid Razr Maxx HD, and the Razr M.

The Razr M launched that day, but the other two flagships were given a vague availability date. Naturally, the M enjoyed much of the hype post-event. But Verizon has finally given us a date, not too long from now either, to mark down on our calendars.

The Razr HD will cost $199.99 on-contract, while the Razr Maxx HD, with an upgraded battery, will cost $299.99 with contract. The Razr HD comes in black and white, with 16GB of storage, while the Razr Maxx HD is only available in the 32GB black model.

The phones run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, and boast 4.7-inch display, NFC and that now well-known iconic Kevlar fiber back casing. The phones all ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, but an upgrade to Jelly Bean has been promised to potential buyers.
