Red Motorola DROID Ultra rumored to cost $100 for Big Red employees starting today
Late Monday, we showed you a picture of the Motorola DROID Ultra wearing a 'V' shaped black and white racing stripe down the Kevlar back. This, we figured, was a picture of the Limited Edition version of the Motorola DROID Ultra. We started thinking aloud about the possibility that this would be a version of the phone offered to Verizon employees at a discount. Just a way for Big Red's executives to thank the reps for all of their hard work.

We also pointed out that in the past, Big Red employees got to buy an exclusive red version of the latest DROID model as a token of appreciation. Is it possible that the racing stripe begins a whole new tradition? Uh, maybe not. It turns out that according to a source close to Verizon, the red version of the DROID Ultra that we showed you last week is actually the model intended for Verizon reps who will be asked to pay $100 for it. The deal begins today and besides the phone, inside the box you will find a SOL Republic Jax in-ear headphones, a Griffin Reveal case and an Ingress invite code.

You know what that means guys, time to peruse eBay to see which Verizon reps are going to play DROID arbitrage. It's a fun little game that goes like this. Work for Verizon. Buy the promotional DROID in red for $100 and sell it on eBay for a price that is about twenty times what you paid for it. Fun is had by all except for the game player who is left with a rapidly depreciating asset at the end of the game.

As far as the Limited Edition version is concerned, we will hopefully hear something about it at Motorola's media event later Tuesday.
