The Droid RAZR MAXX just became available for purchase earlier today on Verizon’s site for $ 299 and here we are with a sale already. Amazon Wireless is offering to shave $ 100 off the top for new Verizon customers and get you out the door for a more palatable $ 199.

If you are an existing customer you can upgrade for $ 229, which isn’t a bad deal either. It does show as being on backorder at the moment, but based on past experience they usually ship on the early side of their estimates.

For those that somehow missed our previous coverage of the Droid RAZR MAXX then I’ll give you the elevator pitch for it quickly. For all intents and purposes it is the original Droid RAZR which we reviewed back in November, but with a 3300 mAh battery that may result in over 24 hours of battery life.

I’ll be getting my hands on the Droid RAZR MAXX tomorrow and will follow up with our full review soon. In the mean time, check out a super quick hands-on with the RAZR MAXX from this month’s CES (filmed with a Galaxy Nexus).
