    Four years ago, the Obama administration rode to the rescue of two Detroit automakers, pouring $80 billion into General Motors and Chrysler Group to see them through their bankruptcies.  But their hometown won't get a similar bailout, even as Detroit becomes the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.

The phone uses an Android operating system and is powered by a quad core Snapdragon chip, which, at least on paper, isn't as fast as the chips in some competing phones. But the chip is snappy nonetheless.
