As you may know, Motorola's new line of DROIDs is available exclusively to Verizon customers, and was made official in July. Verizon has since slashed prices, and in the case of the Ultra, those dropped down to $99 (a $100 cut) on a 2-year commitment. That's not too surprising – the phones aren't selling as well as either of the two partners may have been hoping, and that has at least a little bit to do with the rather underwhelming specs sheet. In the case of the DROID Ultra, we're talking a 5-inch 720p LCD screen, 2GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.7GHz Motorola-made X8 chipset, based on the Snapdragon S4 Pro. Unlike its thicker sibling – the DROID MAXX – the Ultra features a very modest 2130mAh battery, though that one does help it retain a slim waistline of just 7.18mm.
It's definitely starting to feel like Christmas, though we sure are hoping that the festivities will extend to the DROID MAXX, too!
