Those of you that pre-ordered the DROID Ultra or DROID Maxx, you’ll be happy to know that Verizon and Motorola is beginning to ship out those pre-orders now with an expected delivery date of Monday, August 19th. The phone goes on sale in Verizon stores and authorized retailers on August 20th. Droid-Life is reporting that a few of their readers have received shipment notifications already. This has been pretty much the trend for Verizon over the past few years. Sounds like a good incentive to pre-order right? Getting your brand new phone a day earlier than everyone else, for that reason, I’d pre-order…if I were on Verizon.
The Motorola DROID Ultra is on sale for $199 while the Motorola DROID Maxx is $299 (the DROID Mini is $99 and should be launching about a week later). The DROID Ultra and DROID Maxx are basically the same device, except the DROID Maxx has a massive battery. In fact, Motorola is promising 48 hours of battery life. Now that’s crazy, and pretty much an instant buy, right?
All three of the Motorola DROID devices have all the features of the Moto X, including the Touchless Display, Active Notifications, Always-on listening with Google Now and more. But it’s not customizable like the Moto X. The new line of DROIDs also have other features that the Moto X doesn’t have like the DROID Command Center and DROID Zap, just to name a few.
We haven’t gotten our review units of the DROID Ultra and DROID Maxx in just yet, but we should get them soon and be able to do a full review. So if you’re waiting for our review before you decide if you’re going with another Motorola DROID, you’ll be waiting a bit longer. But we’ll be sure to get plenty of coverage of all three devices, once we get our hands on. Just like we do with all the other devices we’ve reviewed in the past.
