Verizon has just announced the Motorola DROID Mini, a 4.3-inch Android smart phone that follows the “mini” trend other big names have started as of late. Like the other devices announced today, the device will come with Motorola’s 1.7GHz X8 computing platform, which gives us a dual-core setup for application processing, quad-core graphics, a core for natural language computing and a “contextual” core.

We’re also told to expect 2GB of RAM, a 10 megapixel RGBC camera sensor, 16GB of internal storage, a 2,130mAh battery, Android 4.2, and more. All told, this is one of the nicest Mini variants we’ve seen to date, and while the display might not stack up to the DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX, it packs enough power in all the right places to make us forget about that.

Like the others in this three-way dance, the DROID Mini will also come with a suite of interesting software features, such as quick camera shutter speeds, DROID Zap for sending pictures to other nearby DROID owners, the DROID Command Center, touchless controls, and more. The Motorola DROID Mini will launch August 28th for just $100, and you can put your pre-order in over at Verizon’s website starting today.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Is that $99 (begin really small print)with 2 year contract(end really small print) ?

      1. Damn! We almost had a REAL Game Changer

      2. Then it’s not $100.

        By your logic, my car was free… Because all I had to do was make payments on it for three years.

  2. looking foreward to the mini-maxxx HD+ 4.3 screen with 8000mAh battery pack last all month on a single charge lol

  3. that was a really short event. Straight to the point. got to love that

  4. LOL, 4.3 is now the mini category. Wonder what that makes the iPhone?

    1. Micro, of course!

      1. And iPhans will proudly call it the smallest smartphone in the world. @ the price of a biggest phone in the world.

    2. Obsolete

    3. I remember getting all geeked about my Nexus One with a 3.7″ screen. I guess smartphones are kind of like fast food. The sizes keep getting bigger.

  5. Of course, JPB :)

  6. Those mini specs sound pretty damn good. Better than the S4 mini and One mini for sure. Are “Droid” phones only available in the USA through Verizon?

    1. Usually, yes, they are. However, there have been essentially-the-same devices released Internationally in the past (GSM Razr/Razr HD, HTC Butterfly, ect). But I wouldn’t count on it.

      However if you live outside of the US and are willing to buy off contact, some people have had success activating a Verizon Worldphone on a foreign GSM network. This may require some over-the-phone annoyance taking to Verizon, though. Also, they haven’t said if the Googlrola Droids will be worldphones or not.

      Long story short, too soon to say, really.
