Leak: Motorola DROID MAXX For Verizon Breaks Cover – Sports Capacitive Buttons, Kevlar, And No Front Logos

The upcoming DROID MAXX for Verizon Wireless has been rumored for a while now, but @evleaks has just posted an image of the device. Here it is in all its glory.

The design doesn't look like a radical departure from past Verizon DROIDs made by Motorola. It looks a bit closer to the RAZR M than the DROID RAZR MAXX HD, though. The kevlar texture wraps around a bit and the corners aren't as pointy.

FCC Approves SoftBank's Sprint Buyout And Sprint's Clearwire Takeover

It's not much of a surprise at this point, but the Federal Communications Commission has approved the tri-company merger deal involving Japanese carrier SoftBank, Sprint, and Clearwire. The FCC ruling follows Justice Department approval several weeks ago, and some delicious drama that ended with Dish Network being shut out of the deal.

SoftBank is throwing $21.6 billion at Sprint to acquire a 78% stake in the company. Sprint is now also free to buy the remaining 49% of Clearwire it doesn't already own, giving it a big juicy slice of wireless spectrum.

Sprint Shuts Down Nextel iDEN Network As Scheduled, Will Gobble Up Spectrum For CDMA/LTE

If you've been clinging steadfastly to one of the tiny number of iDEN Android phones ever produced, you better have backup plan. Sprint shut off the old Nextel iDEN network yesterday (June 30th) just like it said it would. That juicy Nextel spectrum will be worth much more to Sprint as the backbone of its ever-expanding LTE network. Sprint is still happy to take you money, but only if you use the CDMA/LTE network.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Knocks AT&T's 32GB Galaxy S 4 Down To $210 With A Two-Year Agreement ($40 Off)

With only 9GB of user-accessible storage, the 16GB variant of the GS4 simply won't do for many users. Sure, you can throw a microSD card in it for movies, music, pictures, etc., but that won't help in the slightest if you need more space for apps (for now, at least). The solution? Get the 32GB version. And if you're on AT&T, Amazon just knocked the price down by $40, making it comparable to the 16GB version's retail subsidized price.

The microSD card slot on the Galaxy S4 has come in handy for plenty of owners. The standard 16GB GS4 only has about 8GB of storage available, which was a little shocking when it came out.
