Gigantic handsets may be surprisingly popular, but they're hardly appropriate for every smartphone user. Some of us prefer working with a more compact device, and for those customers, Motorola and Verizon have announced the new Droid Mini. The handset, a smaller variant of the Droid Ultra (and Ultra Maxx), stills packs plenty of punch. Moto calls it "compact without compromise," and while there's clearly less screen real estate here than on the larger Droids, it does look like a pretty compelling package.
For all intents and purposes, the Mini is a refresh of last year's Droid Razr M. Like that device, the Mini sports an attractive Kevlar vest. As expected, the phone packs a 4.3-inch display which, like the Razr M, is edge-to-edge.
