Droid Mini.

The Droid Mini promises the features of the Ultra in a smaller chassis

It seems we're being inundated with "mini" versions of popular smartphones these days. First was Samsung with its Galaxy S4 Mini, then HTC with the One Mini. Today Motorola announced a "miniature" 4.3-inch handset of its own, the Droid Mini, promising thin bezels, an HD display and the same software suite that's found on the larger devices.  Like last year's RAZR M, Moto's calling the Mini's screen an "edge-to-edge" display, on account of its almost nonexistent horizontal bezels.

The Motorola Droid Mini lands on Verizon Aug. 22 for $99 on-contract. We've got your first look in our photo gallery after the break; stay tuned for video in the very near future.
