Soak testVerizon's Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR HD MAXX have something cooking up in Motorola's ovens, and emails are going out to potential testers right about now. Users who participate in the Motorola Feedback program and have one of the mentioned handsets are receiving instructions how to register to be included in the upcoming software test, and we imagine quite a few will be saying yes.

For those not familiar with the term, a soak test is one of the final steps where something (in this case software) is tested by a wide range of users under many different conditions. Think of it as sort of a stress test so developers know how things will stand up with continuous use. If you're thinking that sometimes it's not very fun to participate in something like this, you're absolutely right.

Anyhoo, the test emails are going out but we've no idea exactly what is being soaked, erm, tested. It could be Android 4.2.2, or it could be another bug fixing maintenance update to correct issues from the last bug fixing maintenance update -- this sort of thing can be a never ending circle. We'll know more when the participants start to receive the software, because some secrets are too good not to tell.

Thanks to our anonymous tipsters!
