We all expect Verizon to announce the Motorola DROID Ultra alongside some other new, incoming DROID devices tomorrow. A leak last week tipped us off to a version of that phone with red-coated Kevlar backing, though it looks like those of us not working for Big Red might not get a chance to own that particular version.

According to a document sent to us by a trusted source close to Verizon, the red DROID Ultra is a Verizon employee exclusive, meaning if you see anyone walking around with it there’s a good chance they work for the company. The document goes on to state that employees will be able to pre-order the device for $100 beginning tomorrow.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any clue as to when those employees will be able to get their hands on that sweet red concoction of silicon.¬†We also can’t say whether or not this means those of us who aren’t employees will be able to pre-order the regular edition of the device starting tomorrow. Employees will be getting the following goodies with their exclusive red-accented phone:

  • SOL Republic Jax in-ear headphones
  • Griffin Reveal case
  • Ingress invite code

It’s not the most comprehensive package in the world, but freebies never hurt anyone. The DROID Ultra is said to be coming with a myriad of different color options for folks to choose from. The device is said to be super thin and will come with a 10 megapixel camera (likely the same one being featured in the Moto X), but there isn’t much more concrete info than that to go around.

We’re just a little less than 24 hours away from the device’s big reveal, though, so it won’t be long before we know everything there is to know about this guy.
