DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola: Santa's Newest Little Helper

Motorola invites families to share their kids' wish lists by calling or texting 925-25-SANTA; they'll also be entered for a chance to chat LIVE with the big guy via a Google+ Hangout

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's happened. Santa has gone digital. And this year he's giving families a way to skip the handwritten letters and hit him up with a call or text to his DROID RAZR MAXX HD – the only device powerful enough to help St. Nick get through a demanding night like Christmas Eve.

  • With up to 32 hours of performance*, Santa's new little helper lasts all day and all night. 
  • The power of Google Maps makes it easy for Santa to find his way to every rooftop.
  • Sliding down the chimney? No problem. DROID RAZR MAXX HD is protected by DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber and a Corning® Gorilla Glass® display that repels scrapes and scratches.
  • Checking that list twice is no problem on the phone's crystal-clear HD display.

Give Kringle A Jingle!

Parents can submit their kids' holiday wish lists or a very merry holiday greeting by sending a text or leaving a voicemail on Santa's personal number, 1-925-25-SANTA (72682). Messages left for Santa starting today through December 6 are also sweepstakes** entries for a chance to talk to Kris Kringle live during a video chat hosted at YouTube.com/Motorola using Google+ Hangout on Air. In addition, each day during the sweepstakes one lucky entry will win Santa's smartphone of choice – DROID RAZR MAXX HD.

Tune in to Motorola's YouTube Channel on December 15 to catch the live broadcast of the Google+ Hangout.

Not only is it the easiest way to make sure Santa knows what your family wants this year, it's also your chance to ask him questions you've always wanted to know.

  • Do you always wear that outfit or just at Christmas?
  • What do you look like without a beard?
  • What kind of games do reindeer play anyway?
  • Do you have a car or do you drive your sleigh everywhere?

Even those who don't win can tune in on December 15th and watch Santa tackle the tough questions live.
