The gist is this: Verizon will allow you to upgrade your phone every 6 months, with strings attached. Here's what we know so far.

Edge is part of Verizon's existing device payment plan program.

Leaked Video Shows Moto X With Always-On Voice Commands, Camera Gestures, And More [Updated]

Google+ user Дима Прокопенко has just given us a tantalizing, more complete look at the Moto X, posting a Rogers "Tech Experts" demo video that shows off some of the hotly-anticipated device's unique features.

Before we get to features, it's worth noting that the video indicates a Rogers launch "in August," as an exclusive for the Canadian carrier.

Leaked Verizon Roadmap Allegedly Pins Down HTC One And Moto X Launch Dates

In what PhoneArena calls a "leaked internal memo," launch dates for the Verizon versions of the HTC One and the upcoming Moto X are allegedly revealed - August 1st and August 23rd, respectively. It also adds to the growing pile of evidence that the Moto X will be coming to Verizon sans-DROID branding. Is there any reason to take stock in this rather generic looking document, though?

My gut leaning is "yes," but there are caveats to leaked internal communications like these.

The Mini and Ultra are assumed to be updated versions of the DROID RAZR M and DROID RAZR HD, respectively.

Evleaks Reveals The DROID Ultra In Full Press Shot Glory, And Yes, There Is A Lot Of Carbon Fiber (And A New Kind Of Camera?)

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen, the next DROID. Again. After being revealed in white over the weekend, along with the face of its MAXX sibling on Friday night, the Ultra is all but officially Verizon's next big thing to wear the caps lock-enhanced, Lucasfilm-licensed DROID moniker. And it's a thing of... well, not beauty. Beauty really isn't the right word. It's a thing of carbon fiber Kevlar (thanks for pointing that out), and I'll let you draw your own aesthetic conclusions on that basis.

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.

[Rumor] Is This The Galaxy S4 Zoom? It Certainly Could Be

SamMobile published an image this afternoon that really kind of explains itself: this is, purportedly, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. The concept is obviously pretty simple - it's a Samsung smartphone with a big-ass camera mounted on the back. Don't get your hopes too far up on the smartphone aspect, though, as even SamMobile is tempering expectations on the specifications. Allegedly, the S4 Zoom will be packing a 4.3" qHD display, dual-core 1.6GHz processor (likely a Qualcomm chip), 8GB of internal storage (with microSD slot, of course), and Android 4.2.2.
