Liveblog: Verizon and Motorola announce the DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX and DROID mini
And so, just like that, Verizon and Motorola have embarked on a new journey to pour some fresh oil over the beloved DROID line-up of Android smartphones. Getting their engines going for the first time, a bunch of new handsets are expected to get revealed today at the joint event held by the nation's leading carrier and the world's not-so-leading device manufacturer. What we expect the companies to introduce are the DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX and DROID mini - three brand new DROIDs for the numerous fans of the brand that once kickstarted the whole Android thing.
Welcome to our liveblog of the event - it's for those of you who'd like to follow its development from start to finish and be the first to know about each and every little detail.

Hey, SouljaBOY. We published a review just like that a few days ago. Do a search for "The new midrange" -- you'll find all of these reviewed there, sans the Lumia 720 and Xperia SP. :)

Snapdragon 800 with large battery or go home!

I think you always compare phones from their specs on paper.. In reality It's different.. Even S4 Pro is too much satisfying.. I have a Galaxy S4 and a Nexus 4.. but I don't see any much different in terms of their performance and speed.. both phones is more than fast enough to handle your daily task and even heavy 3D games..

Try putting stock android on the GS4 and then compare.

You own a galaxy S4 and a nexus 4? But you said that you're a mid range consumer in your comment above!

XYBOARDS, I'll have to look-up the SNL Verizon skit. I hope the MAXX is sporting a micro SD slot and a minimum of 32 Gigs built-in memory.

Verizon: It's an old person's nightmare.
So true, so true.

Next time, guys, stream this event on your 4G LTE, (that everyone touts) network.
No word on a micro SD slot. Hmm.

At Last...one company made sense by not running spec race. Full HD on mobile device is just overkill. It all now comes how well Moto would have implemented X8 SOC...waiting for real world performance.. Moto stopped selling devices in India. Hope they bring it back.. :)
