Motorola unveils the Droid Mini

So, I welcome back Motorola to the game! The now Google owned smartphone maker (Motorola Mobility) has finally, after months of not announcing one, unveiled three new smartphones to the market. First stop is the Droid Mini. It might have the "Mini" name on it but don't judge a phone by its name. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor with a 4.3" display. The device has a whopping 2GB RAM. Like all of these new Droids, the Droid Mini will be exclusively sold in the US via Verizon (but I might be wrong on this). For those who wants the Droid Mini, Verizon is now accepting pre-orders of the smartphone for $99.99 with a 2-year contract. Verizon and Motorola is expected to start shipping the Droid Mini in August 29. By the way, Motorola Mobility has their own SoCs now which are called Motorola MX8
