Knowing Moto, it will not have the maxx battery. They will sell it at the same price as the Maxx, but with a smaller battery. Otherwise, they will have to lower the price of the Maxx to ~ $199 to $249, in order to sell the HD MAXX at $299 with contract. They then would have to lower the regular Razr to ~$99 to $149. So I expect them to have the Razr at $199, MAXX at $299 and Razr HD with smaller battery at $299.
And the 16 GB Razr is $199. I could easily see VZW doing the same price point drops if a "new" Razr type model came out. The Razr is will be 6 months old minimum by the time the next big thing hits, and they should have Maxx supply Unger control by then too.
What would be typical is releasing a bunch of hot new phones with insufficient stock .
