Today at their annual Financial Analysts Meeting in Chicago, Motorola launched the update to their 3G RAZR V3x handset, the new MOTORAZR maxx. The maxx improves upon the V3x by being 5mm thinner and adding HSDPA 3G data. Additionally, the maxx also gets EDGE support for its 3 GSM bands and the new high-speed v2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) Bluetooth with support for the synchronization profile.

Like the MOTOKRZR K1m that Motorola also just launched, the maxx gets a glass front facade and new touch sensitive music control keys on the outside of the flip. Music, as well as photos and videos, can be stored either in the built-in 50MB of storage, or on a microSD memory card.

The exterior of the maxx also gets a bit of the blue light treatment when a call is received, as you can see in the photo below. All in all the Motorola MOTORAZR maxx appears to be a good upgrade for V3x lovers. The maxx's updated looks are matched with equally updated high tech components.

Motorola expects the MOTORAZR maxx to be available some time during this half of 2006. No pricing or carrier information has been released at this time.
