Offering a mother lode of Android capabilities, the Droid Razr Maxx has all the staples, including a few surprises, such as GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 (which supports a new generation of low-power accessories), Wi-Fi, and a mobile hot-spot capability that lets the phone act as a modem for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Keep in mind that the mobile hot-spot feature costs about $20 extra per month on top of your voice and data plans.
Corporate- and government-friendly
Who says you need a BlackBerry for private or public sector mobile security? Motorola doesn't think so. Also folded into the Droid Razr Maxx is support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, not to mention government-grade FIPS 140-2 encryption for e-mail, calendar, and contacts. For even more peace of mind, more-severe methods such as remote wipe, PIN lock, SD card and device encryption, and remote enabling and disabling of camera and Wi-Fi are possible, too.
Many Motorola Android phones feature the company's Webtop app, and the Droid Razr Maxx continues the tradition. It morphs the handset into a mobile quasi-PC with Netbook-level functionality. Just attach it to compatible accessories like the Lapdock 100 (10-inch screen), the (14-inch screen), or an HD Station, and the Webtop platform fires up automatically. These Lapdocks sport a keyboard and touch pad, but you'll have to contribute your own input devices if using something like the HD Station.
The Droid RAZR MAXX HD features a 4.7-inch display with a 1280 x 720 resolution that is great for watching HD video content on the go. The display is large enough to enjoy a movie or TV show, but no so large that it is a challenge to hold thanks to slim bezels.
