Today's the official street date for two of Motorola and Verizon's new Droid phones, the Droid Ultra and Droid MAXX ? and posters on the Android Central forums are already picking up their handsets. The devices are going on sale in brick-and-mortar VZW stores today, and you can also buy them online with an Aug. 27 shipping date.
 
The Droid Ultra and Droid MAXX are Moto's flagship devices for Verizon, with 5-inch displays and similar internals to the Moto X. They also boast all the software features from Motorola's customizable handset, including active notifications, voice controls and Motorola Assist.
 
The smaller Droid Mini is listed as shipping by Aug. 29, though some readers are reporting it's already available to buy in certain stores.
 
We're currently putting the new Droids through their paces, but you can find more on the Droid Ultra in our hands-on feature and initial review.

Looks to be stock, or near stock, OS as well.  Which would be a big plus as they will most likely be support with updates better than any other OEM.

Moto is keeping this line for Verizon very nice. Although the Droid X and X2 weren't the best, the RAZRs were all very nice and these seem to be as well. I'd definitely keep it as one of my top recommendations for Verizon.

 

The only thing I can really say bad about them is that they added capacitive touch buttons back on the device. That's a feature that's going to be the sign of a dated devices very shortly. Dedicated capacitive touch buttons are absolutely pointless and just waste space. Should have taken the Moto X style there.

Verizon's site said they were avilable on 8/27 - at least it did yesterday.

 

Either way i'll be picking up the Maxx and starting the VZ Edge program on the 25th.
