Droid Maxx Ultra MiniThe Moto X runs at long last Android 4.4 KitKat on all four major wireless carriers, the terrible blizzards have blown over allowing the G to ship, so it’s time for Motorola to start phase three of its grand mobile world domination plan.

Specifically, update Verizon’s exclusive Droid Maxx, Ultra and Mini to KitKat. The software bump for the trio was always a matter of “when” rather than if, and new reports around the web indicate D-Day is nearly here.

Apparently, invites for mysterious so-called soak tests have gone out in the past couple of days to members of the Motorola Feedback Network, suggesting a software makeover of sorts is looming on the horizon.

There’s no way to know for sure if it’s a major upgrade to 4.4 we’re looking at, or some sort of minor bug fix, however chances are it’s the former. If it is, don’t start your celebratory dance just yet, as we could still be weeks away from a broad public rollout.

Also, it’s unlikely that the Maxx, Ultra and Mini will all get the chocolaty treat at the same time, so patience is the word of the day. Oh, to heck with caution, the bandwagon is coming and there’s no one and nothing that can stop it. Not even Verizon’s traditionally lengthy testing process.
