Verizon Wireless has launched three new Motorola Smartphones. Here we are at the unveiling of the Motorola Droid range of phones, after a series of leaks, - The Droid Mini, the Droid Ultra and the Droid Maxx. Banking and Boasting on the fact that the DROID on Verizon means intelligence, strength and endurance, Motorola Mobility is back with a bang as it presents this bag full of new Droids. As we take a look at the tech specs of each of them one by one, we find that the Motorola Droid Mini features a 4.3-inch OLED display running at 720p and a glossy DuPont Kevlar fiber unibody design. Along with a compact design comes the facility for wireless charging. Then there is the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone available, measuring 7.18mm - the Motorola Droid Ultra comes with a 5-inch HD display in two colors - Black and Red.
The last out of the bag is Motorola Droid Maxx, the phone that also features wireless charging and a 3500mAh battery that gives users nearly two days of battery life on a single charge, making it the longest lasting 4G LTE smartphone available. So, what are all these features that make these new series of phones fall apart from the rest. Well, firstly there is the DROID Command Center, an exclusive homescreen widget for users to easily access notifications for text messages, missed calls, battery level and weather. Thanks to Wireless Display, users can mirror what's on the screen onto a compatible HDTV. For photographers, Quick Capture lets users access the 10-megapixel camera by shaking the phone twice, then tapping anywhere on the screen to snap a picture.
There's plenty of other smart features too. The Droid Zap feature, for instance, makes sharing with a friend or a group of friends nearby very easy. Just by swiping up on a picture, users can instantly share it. For those who love hands-free tech, you can now make these Droids come to life by saying "Ok Google Now" and then tell it what you want to do. And for those users who constantly lose their phone under the couch or around the house, they can simply say "Ok Google Now, call my DROID" and it will start ringing. Quite handy for some of us absent-minds. "These Touchless Controls and Active Display let users make calls, send texts, get directions, play music, set a reminder and preview notifications hands-free without having to unlock the phone, giving DROID users a whole new way of interacting with their phones," wrote Albert Aydin, Verizon corporate communications analyst.
The first DROID launched in November 2009 and included features new at the time such as Google Maps Navigation. Now DROID ULTRA and DROID MAXX being made available for purchase starting August 20 and the DROID MINI on August 29, the reviews and hands-on videos are going to bubble up. The price for the DROID MINI will be $99.99, the DROID ULTRA will be $199.99 and the DROID MAXX will be $299.99, all with a new two-year customer agreement. How do you like the new Motorola series?
