Massive battery, Kevlar or ballistic fiber, and available Oct. 30 starting at $199 on contract

And with that, the heavily leaked Motorola Droid Turbo is official. As we foretold, the Droid Ultra ramps things up from what we saw in the new Moto X. It keeps the 5.2-inch display, but cranks up the resolution to Quad-HD, or 2560 x 1440, and it improves on the internals, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
