Motorola DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX will now ship by August 27th


motorola droid ship by verizon

Verizon initially set a ship date of August 20th for its latest DROID phones, particularly the Ultra and Maxx. It looks like that date might have been adjusted, though, as Verizon’s site now shows a ship-by date of August 27th for both phones, a full week behind the original timeline.

Of course, we’re not sure if this date rings true for both new and existing orders. With that, folks who have already placed an order with Verizon will want to double check their order to make sure it’s still arriving on the 20th. We’ll be reaching out to Verizon to see if we can get word right from the big, red horse’s mouth.

That said, the DROID Mini still holds its original ship date of August 29th, so those who were opting for that one shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Let us know if the status of your existing order has changed in the comments section below!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. According to the verizon rep I talked to, existing orders have not changed and will ship on the 20th.

    1. Yup, my status still says to be shipped on the 20th.

  2. Yawwwwwwn, a new DROID phone. Yawwwwwwn.

    1. you’re a moron

      1. For someone that apparently also likes “Super Troopers” that is a silly comment.

        1. This coming from a Yankees fan, all of the sudden you have standards!

  3. What’s the point of this crap when the Moto X is announced?

    1. Each phone has slightly different options. For example, the Mini is basically a smaller Moto X, but has wireless charging, longer batt life and 1/2 the price.

    2. What’s the point of the Crapo X when Droids were already announced

        Each phone has slightly different
        options. For example, the Mini is basically a smaller Moto X, but has
        wireless charging, longer batt life and 1/2 the price. The Maxx has
        twice the storage (at least at launch) and twice the batt life of the X.

      2. Exactly

  4. All I want is the Droid Mini without the Droid name. Maybe a X mini in the future?

  5. Samsung Galaxy S4 is looking better and better. I have a Bionic that has turned into a battery eating slug. A FDR would probably fix it but I’m tired of playing with this phone that should never have been released trying to get it to run correctly. The Droid Maxx looks tempting but it’s overpriced by $100 and now they pushed the date back.

    1. I’m thinking the same. I really want the MAXX but I don’t know if it will be $700 worth (keeping the unlimited) replacing it with my Bionic (hate this phone with a passion) because they look suspiciously alike and idk it the maxx will lag just like the Bionic. I hate Samsung more though and the HTC One is in the clouds and won’t come down. I’m lost.

  6. Say what you want but that 3500 mAh battery is looking awfully good!

  7. According to VZ Customer service the Droid Maxx I ordered on 8/2 has shipped to arrive in two business days. No tracking number yet.
