Moto RAZR maxx US Rumor
Motorola's GSM version of the RAZR maxx could well reach US shores, says an anonymous source. The contact claims that Italian cell provider TIM will launch a version not just with the 850MHz GSM frequency needed to make calls in North America, but also HSDPA Internet access on the same band. The change would open the gates to a version for North American carriers such as AT&T and Rogers, according to the report, which would also mean both full 3G broadband access and a front video camera for either AT&T's Video Share or Rogers' VISION service.
The RAZR maxx had been seen as early as January at the FCC with some support for North America, but at the time only included a single HSDPA band that would have disabled 3G outside of Europe.
No word was received as to a release date or whether the device might conflict with the RAZR2 V9, which may also support American and Canadian HSDPA networks when it's released in late summer. [via BGR]
