On Tuesday, Verizon Wireless, along with our long-time partner Motorola, announced a new family of exclusive DROID smartphones coming soon to Verizon Wireless: DROID MINI, DROID ULTRA and DROID MAXX by Motorola. Keeping up with the DROID tradition, these devices give users what’s expected from a DROID on Verizon – intelligence, strength and endurance.
To announce this exciting news, a press event to unveil this new and exclusive DROID lineup was held in New York City. Here in the Midwest Area, we also held a more intimate unveiling to media in Chicago – the home of Motorola.
Representatives from Verizon Wireless and Motorola gave members of the media a sneak peek of the devices and shared some of the new features, including the DROID Command Center for the home screen and camera features.
So what did they think?
- Charlie Wojciechowski at NBC shows off some of the software features that set the new DROIDs apart from others. These include some cool voice commands available using Google Now.
- Wailin Wong at the Chicago Tribune has more on those.
- Marcus Leshock at WGN offers a detailed look at the camera features, including quick capture and Zap sharing.
