The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX recently received a price cut from $299 to $199.  The most attractive aspect of the device is its battery life as it has a 3300 mAh battery providing up to 21 hours of continuous talk time.  For some customers, it was hard to justify a $299 price tag for a great battery life, but now the price may be a little easier to swallow since it is just $199 on a two year contract.

Ironically, the Motorola DROID RAZR still costs $199 on a two year contract, but I imagine Verizon will lower its price soon enough.  The DROID RAZR MAXX at the same price is definitely the better deal with the bigger battery, but at $199, it is one of Verizon’s top smartphones.

Recently, Verizon and Color for Facebook teamed up and the app on the DROID RAZR MAXX can be used to live stream 30 second HD clips powered by 4G LTE.  While this app sounds kind of cool, I can’t imagine myself using it that often.

If Android 2.3 is holding you back from purchasing the DROID RAZR MAXX for $199, then you should know that Android 4.0 should be right around the corner.
