With so many groundbreaking and glamorous high-end Android smartphones recently released or looming on the horizon, Motorola’s Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini have not really been given a lot of attention by the media and public so far.
But maybe they needed to actually become available in order to make a few waves. If that’s the case, you should be happy to hear Verizon is now taking online orders for all three devices, though the Droid Mini is the only one that can be had in the foreseeable future (i.e. on August 22, which is tomorrow).
Meanwhile, the Ultra and Maxx seem to be backordered, with shipping set to only happen around August 27. As far as pricing goes, there are really no surprises here. The Droid Mini goes for $99.99 with two-year contracts, the Ultra is 100 bucks more, whereas the Maxx costs a pretty extravagant $299.99.
Remember though, Wirefly has the trio up for pre-orders for much lower prices, so maybe you’ll be better off doing business with that particular retailer. Even if you’ll probably have to wait even more to get your spanking new phones packaged and ready to rumble at your doorsteps.
It’s probably worth noting that Big Red, the US carrier with exclusivity rights over all Droid handhelds, has a couple more big launches scheduled for this month. Namely, we should be seeing the HTC One go on sale on the 22nd or 23rd, with the Moto X following on the 29th at the latest. Both phones are expected to cost $200 with 24-month pacts.
