Last week Motorola hosted a NCCAA themed event to promote the brands latest smartphones and tablets. The star of the show was the DROID Razr Maxx, the longest lasting 4G LTE smartphone. Various members of the media were invited… which included print and online media. Each guest was assigned a product expert to discuss our needs and concerns when it comes to technology. I was assigned Ken, the regional trainer for Motorola who went over not only the devices, but the coolest apps to use on the Motorola droids.
In addition to technology… guest nibbled on game time finger foods such as fruit skewers, chicken fingers, sliders, and mac n’ cheese quiches. During the event we also got to sip on Moto-cocktails while the tournaments games displayed on 8 flat screens throughout the room. Latitude Bar and Grill served as venue sponsor; this was a great spot for hosting sports related events.
Now there are a couple of things interesting about this event….
- Ken has to be the hardest working Regional Trainer in New York. I swear I see him at all the technology shows. I am not sure who attends more events… him or me, loll.
- I just purchased the Motorola Atrix 4G. Sooo when I got the invitation to attend this event I chuckled, then shook my head. I did this because I knew that they were going to present something better than what I currently had.
- Why has no other company thought of doing a sports related event?! Like… how awesome would it have been to combine gadgets and football together?! Like I would be in heaven. Hmmm… then again, they would only be able to talk shop during commercials and halftime, loll.
- OK… the DROID Razr Maxx seems pretty amazing… I will go over the details next.
Let me start by saying… I don’t review items that I have not tried directly. I got to hold this device, touch it, smell it, hug it… but until I give it a try on the mean streets of New York; my opinions are strictly based on the cover of the book, loll. I took the liberty of pasting the specs below for you all to peruse and compare to your current device:
