Verizon reps get to snag red Motorola DROID Turbo 2 Employee Edition
Verizon's website today quickly listed an Employee Edition of the just announced Motorola DROID Turbo 2, before the page was pulled by the carrier. When you work for a company nicknamed Big Red, you pretty much have an idea about what color phone you are being offered. Thus, Verizon reps will be given the opportunity to buy a limited edition red DROID Turbo 2.

Employees of the nation's largest carrier won't have a choice, as consumers do, to select a 32GB or 64GB model of the phone. The Employee Edition will only be available with 64GB of internal storage. Earlier today, Motorola and Verizon introduced the DROID Turbo 2 with its 5.4-inch "shatterproof" screen, protected by the ShatterShield system.

In the past, Verizon has offered the Employee Edition for handsets like the DROID RAZR MAXX and the HTC DROID DNA, both of which were offered in Red. Since it is a limited edition, these models traditionally come numbered and have special wording printed on back. The devices usually are packaged in a nice box.

Some employees have made a killing selling the phones on eBay. One Verizon rep listed his DROID RAZR MAXX Employee Edition before he even received it. The first bid was $750 and the device ended up selling for $2250. If you are not a Verizon employee but want to purchase one of these limited edition models, you can either apply for a job at Verizon and hope that they hire you in time, or you can check out eBay to see if the phone is being auctioned off.

Like the color scheme. If Moto has brains enough maybe it's a good idea for this color option set for the international Moto X Force SANS the horrendous split bottom speaker though (yes I'm nitpicking much).

Are you shocked? This is not the first time Verizon has offered an exclusive version to their employees.
