Meet the new Verizon DROIDs

Today is a happy day for all fans of the beloved DROID line-up of Android handsets. The latest collaboration between Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless has brought us three very cool smartphones - the DROID MAXX, DROID Ultra and DROID Mini. As the names suggest, the first one is a high-end device with a long-lasting battery, the second one has pretty much the same internals, but a smaller battery and a thinner body, while the third is a designed to offer a no-compromise Android experience in a compact form-factor.

If you'd like to learn more about these new handsets, feel free to browse through the stories below - you'll find everything you need to know there!

So, when is PA going to post a review of the new Droids? Curious how the camera functions compared to the rest of the flagship cameras of 2013.

I wanna see camera samples and I also wanna see how compact the mini is compared to the other minis out there.

I also really like the new droids...if I would get an android phone (currently having a lumia 920 and due to the awesome experience I had with it, my next phone will be a lumia ), it would be one of these motos ,if only google is smart enough to let moto be the king in android lane rather than Samsung also,is it me or currently all old school phone manufacturers r the best (nokia, Motorola, blackberry) ?

I'm liking the droid mini a lot, a small device with no compromise imo.

we are talking about a 5 in. screen not a 60 in. TV so why is it you think 1080p is a must? true 720p will look great on that screen and trying to push higher than that is just for market hype.

720p display on 4-5 inches screen is over needed :) you cannot tell the difference unless using microscope :D :D

The Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra, and Droid Mini...... all "rehashes" of the current Droid Razr Maxx, the Droid Razr HD, and the Droid Razr M.

I don't know how they peddled this garbage without dying a bit on the inside. This tech looks like it could have came from 2011. The Maxx looks just alright, the rest is a waste of money imo

Just another patch of a snakeskinned motos with "another row of retro icons". Atleast they replaced this year models with something else, than that stupid a washing machine icon. Whe are innovations? Where are cool designs? See you later googlemoto.
