Moto X will not carry DROID branding on Verizon
It wasn't something that was high on the list of questions that needed answering, but The Verge has answered it anyway. Just in case you were wondering whether or not the Motorola Moto X would carry the DROID branding when released on Verizon, the answer is no. It will not be a DROID device.

Motorola and Verizon have historically had a very close relationship, and many of Motorola's devices were either exclusive to the carrier, held the DROID branding, or both. But, since Google acquired Motorola, that has begun to change. We've already seen that the Moto X will be brought to multiple carriers. It wouldn't be out of the ordinary for a multi-carrier device to have a specific model for Verizon that carries the DROID branding, but The Verge is confirming that will not be the case. 

If we had to guess, we'd say that the customization options, and added bloatware of a DROID branded device are the reasons why. But, the relationship between Motorola and Verizon is not dead, because as we've already heard, Motorola does have the RAZR Ultra devices on the way. We don't know much about those devices, but our source has confirmed that the larger DROID RAZR Ultra will carry a 1080p display, while the smaller DROID RAZR M Ultra will have a 720p display.
