The Motorola RAZR MAXX is coming to the UK and Europe, without the battery-guzzling LTE radios of the Verizon version, but complete with the gianormous 3300mAh battery. Today British retailer Clove Technology give us the first indication of when we'll be able to get hold of the RAZR MAXX in the UK, and how much cash we'll be expected to part with.
Clove expects to stock the RAZR MAXX from mid-May, and lists a pre-order price of £359 (~$570) without VAT, or £430.80 including VAT. So it's clear that if you want the privilege of getting multiple days' usage on a single charge, you'll be expected to pay a significant premium over the the original GSM RAZR. That device currently sells for around £380 including VAT off-contract.
Pricing concerns aside, we're interested to see how long a plain old GSM/HSPA device on the MAXX's substantial battery pack. If anyone's interested in importing it into the US, the GSM RAZR MAXX's specs indicate it supports HSPA on 850 and 1900MHz, meaning it'll work on AT&T's 3G and "4G" network.
