Motorola Mobility Brings the Longest Talk Time of any Smartphone (1) to South Africa with RAZR™ MAXX
Up the ante with Motorola RAZR MAXX – now available in South Africa
July 03, 2012
JOHANNESBURG – July 3, 2012 – All day, every day - that’s how much you use your smartphone. With its impossibly thin and lightweight design, Motorola RAZR™ MAXX boasts features with the wow factor and a battery that can handle even the most demanding lifestyle. Customers in South Africa are expected to be able to start talking, texting, typing, watching and more for even longer using this Android™-powered device from July 2012.
Still impossibly thin at just 8.99mm, RAZR MAXX is the exact opposite of frail. It’s made strong with KEVLAR® fibre, while Corning® Gorilla® Glass defends the hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display from scratches and scrapes. And every part of the Motorola RAZR MAXX is protected by a splashguard coating, which even extends to the electrical boards inside, ensuring a go anywhere, do everything attitude.
RAZR MAXX delivers up to 17.61 hours of talk time so you won’t spend your day plugged into the wall. Similarly, its 1GB RAM combined with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android operating system will ensure you are always entertained, delivering a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. You can rock your playlists while checking email, breeze through photos – all day, every day, all at the same time.
Smart Actions, the remarkably intelligent application exclusive to Motorola Mobility, pushes the limits even further by automating everyday tasks based on triggers like time of day, location, battery levels and more. Never forget to put your phone on silent in meetings, turn up the volume when your boss calls and even maximize your last ounce of power by dimming the display and turning off power hungry services.
Motorola RAZR MAXX also comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast™ app², giving you the power to stream or download content from a home or work computer straight to the device so your docs, pics and music are always available – anytime, anywhere. No uploading to a third party means no wasted time or forgetting to upload that crucial presentation, and everything stays protected, right on your computer.
“Since we re-imagined the iconic RAZR brand, the Motorola RAZR has wowed consumers across the globe by combining the pinnacle of design with mind-blowing power,” said Dorothy Matemba, Motorola Mobility sub-Saharan Africa head of marketing. “RAZR MAXX builds on those same principles, delivering an incredible battery life that is perfect for South African consumers who want to push their smartphone to the limits and banish the low battery beep to history.”
Motorola smartphones offer some of the industry’s most powerful enterprise features available, and Motorola RAZR MAXX is no exception, including government-grade encryption and productivity tools that rival the capabilities of desktop PCs. Collaborate in real time with GoToMeeting® and create and edit files right on your phone with QuickOffice®.
