2Verizon’s New Family of Droids
The Mini measures 61mm by 121.3mm by 8.9mm thin. Like the other new Droids, it features Active Display technology, which shows off things such as the time and new messages without illuminating the whole screen and shortening the battery life. Like Active Display and Touchless Control, Motorola says the result of these technologies is “doing things faster and staying connected to what matters most.”
Verizon brands the Motorola phones as Droids. But under its own label, Motorola has at least one other major device planned for this year—the Moto X. The X.1? Feel free to read into this photo, which Google, in an overall very Apple-like ad, placed in several major newspapers July 3 to announce that the X will be made in the United States.
