Motorola Droid Ultra.. review

Motorola Droid Ultra.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"The Droid Ultra by Motorola is the middle child in Verizon's fall 2013 Moto Droid lineup. There's the Droid Mini with a 4.3" display, our $199 with contract Droid Ultra and the $299 Droid Ultra with double the battery and storage. The Ultra is very similar to the Moto X in terms of software and internals. The exterior is all Droid though, with its masculine, dark and imposing look."

Verizon LG G2.. wireless charging exclusive in the US | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"The Verizon LG G2 will be the only variant of the new Android flagship to support native wirelesscharging in the US, the carrier has confirmed, building the cable-free technology into the phone itself. LG confirmed that the new G2 would be available across all four major US carriers at Wednesday’s launch event, but at the time did not detail any operator variations. However, Verizon followed up with the tidbit that, out of all four versions, only the G2 for its network would offer wireless charging support."

Verizon HTC One hits August 1st.. too late? | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"It’s just a few weeks away: the Verizon HTC One, the smartphone introduced in February and out on carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile in the months that came soon after. Now the Verizon version of the device is headed to market and it would appear – not confirmed 100%, but just as well – that the HTC One will be appearing on big red on the first of August. Will it have been worth the wait, or will it be too late to care?"

HTC M4 vs HTC One.. wait for Verizon, or wait even longer?

HTC M4 vs HTC One.. wait for Verizon, or wait even longer? | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"As the HTC One is confirmed for Verizon here in the United States, so too has an “HTC One Mini” been all but confirmed by a set of leaked up-close photos. These photos are either the work of a hardwaretester or an extremely dedicated mock-up artist – as we’re inclined to believe the former, it’s become apparent that a new choice must be made for those waiting for their favorite amalgamation of HTC and Android. Should you pick up an HTC One now, or does it make more sense to wait for the ever-so-slightly smaller HTC M4?"

The Pantech Perception Review

The Pantech Perception Review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"This week we’ve had the opportunity to have a peek at the newest smartphone from Verizon in the Pantech Perception, a device whose gesture abilities appear at first to outweigh its full suite of high-end specifications. While this device isn’t exactly a match for the likes of the GALAXY S 4 from Samsung or the HTC One by any means, Pantech does appear to have created a solid device for the masses, and not one meant for the budget crowd they’ve so often tended to in the past."

iPad Mini.. Verizon 4G review

iPad Mini.. Verizon 4G review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"One of the takeaways from our iPad mini review was quite how travel-friendly the smaller tablet proved to be in comparison to the full-sized version. The 9.7-inch iPad has grown progressively slimmer across its generations, but the 7.9-inch form factor has bag-friendly advantages in its narrower width and shorter length. The fact that it’s so easily used one-handed makes it a more direct alternative to a Kindle or NOOK for ebook reading, too. While the WiFi-only model’s design begged to be included in your bag or purse, the 4G version finally has the flexibility to match."

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD vs RAZR HD.. hands-on

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD vs RAZR HD.. hands-on | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Verizon has been granted a couple more smartphones from the likes of Motorola and Google here with the massive battery-toting DROID RAZR MAXX HD right alongside its near-identical brother the RAZR HD (without so much MAXX). The difference between these two devices is just about as slight as it could possibly get – the MAXX has twice the internal storage (32GB instead of 16) and a giant 3,300mAh battery instead of the 2,530mAh unit the standard HD has. The weight and thickness are absolutely negligible – even when you’ve got them both in your hands it’s difficult to guess which is which, believe it or not."

DROID Maxx.. unboxing and hands-on

DROID Maxx.. unboxing and hands-on | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"It’s time to get a look at the largest of three DROID devices released this week by Motorola and Verizon: the DROID Maxx. This device takes on a form that’s remarkably similar to the DROID Ultra, including software and hardware, but brings on a significantly larger battery and slightly different backside casing to differentiate. Here we’ve got essentially the same device as we showed yesterday in our DROID Ultra review, but with a lot longer battery life and a double-down on internal storage."

Motorola DROID RAZR HD.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"With Verizon’s next in an ever-expanding line of RAZR devices here with the Motorola DROID RAZR HD we’re getting essentially the same experience as we did with the RAZR M, except this time it’s quite a bit larger. With a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED display on top of a dual-core processor from Qualcomm, it’s not just the screen we’re impressed with. This device brings on one of the most refined Motorola experiences we’ve seen thus far, matching at least the impression we’ve had with the M, and out-doing it for the large-display-lovers."

"The folks at Verizon and LG have teamed up to bring you a device exclusive to the both of them here in the USA – the LG Intuition – made to take on the phablet segment of the market with a fury all its own. But what can LG offer the 5-inch display-toting smart device universe that the Samsung Galaxy Note (and now the Note II) haven’t already? Have a peek here at the one and only competing device to take on the larger than a smartphone but smaller than a tablet market currently on Verizon – and see if LG’s convinced us that a 4:3 aspect ratio display is all its cracked up to be!"

"The Optimus Vu will be a larger device for many as it does not have the standard Android HD resolution. Instead, with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the device will be more aimed at tablet use, than phone calling, as it will be a wider, larger device than the competing Galaxy Note."
