    They all come pre-installed with Ingress, an Ingress invite, and a 6 month free subscription of Google Play Music.

    Are the software functions like Voiceless Control/Google Now, etc., going to be exclusive to 4.2? I'm not too sure whether I want to upgrade past the Droid Razr Maxx HD, which apparently only goes to 4.1... if it's not exclusive maybe it'll come to 4.1??

    ((Maybe I'm asking too early for an answer, since these were *just* release))

    Specs are starting to get clarified now. From what I can see and according to Android Central, none of the new Droids has a SD card slot. I guess that scratches the Mini from the phones that I'm looking at.

    I really don't understand the move away from expandable memory? Why should I be locked into a max amount of memory? I will pass on these phones for that reason.

    So they can push cloud storage and customers use more data backing up data on cloud vs the memory card.

    You are brilliant! That is so very true, I never thought of it that way.

    Going off topic if I may and simultaneously going all Matrix on ya: it's another form of control. Put your data on the cloud so we can see whatcha got. Phones that you can't pull the battery out of so we can talk you 24/7. Makes me wonder if all the choices in phones we have are in fact false choices to box us into corners.

    I will not go with any phone without sd card...32GB should be enough for most people without having to use cloud service though but why limit yourself when you can have 64gb card in ...all these phones with non removable batteries no sd cards to make them slim in design are a no go here ...

    Having no slot for an SD Card, that is a Google move.

    no sd slot is a dealbreaker for me as well.
    im out on this one
    i have the original razr maxx and before that i had a droid x.
    the one thing about the 2 motorola phones that i cant stand is when i hold the phone between my shoulder and ear the person on the other end complains that they cant understand me.
    idk if it was just the phones i got but i dont have that problem with my rezound or my girlfriends galaxy at all. so i was thinking maybe i wont get another motorola

    Does anyone have any info on any updated versions that have a slide out keyboard? I can still type so much faster on my droid 3 than any of the new touch screen types, and I don't have to look at the phone to type, I'm used to the keyboard. Currently (and for a long time) the droid 4 has been it...which isn't better enough than the droid 3 to warrant a switch... Any info appreciated, as my 3 is getting a lot of miles on it..
