    Lots of questions this raises. Maxx? Moto X? Is this related to wARrior?

    Google, Verizon and Motorola let the Droid line go. It's time to move on and start new beginnings. People need to learn that every Android device is not a "Droid" or that "S something... it's a Droid right?"

    I like the Droid brand. I just assume people mean Android when they say 'Droid.

    Well I believe some do but most people I correct don't know the difference.

    What I don't' like about the Droid line that its only exclusive to Verizon.

    It was a good idea a few years ago when Android didn't have much mass recognition, but it never really evolved to mean anything aside from the boot sequence being a big red HAL type eye. Verizon missed a great opportunity to define what was a recognizable line of products by a characteristic, such as camera quality, screen quality, or battery life. They are basically just like any other android with VZW bloatware.

    With all the marketing they had, people learned the name Droid, and usually that's how they discovered Android, but it could have been so much more.

    I am wondering if these rumor Droid phones are just the last in assembly line before they close shop to make way for motorola "a Google Company". I would think Google would want to phase out the Droid line so they have clean slate to work from. I presume Google working towards Motorola to be more minimalistic and mirrors Google's focus on connect a vast array of people. I just see the continuing Droid line and Motorola's new direction fine it nessary to push both vastly different agendas.

    Changing Droid line image to reflect Google's new direction for the company seems counter intuitive.

    I think Motorola is perfect company for Google to build a product line that reflects Google like G1 did but be more accessible.

    The question is how many more years are left in the contract that Motorola has with Verizon. Droids will likely continue until then . . .

    I wouldn't mind a new batch of droid on Verizon it would be cool. I am waiting for a new RAZR ultra Maxx for school that battery is going to be good.

    One of these Ultra phones was spotted at the FCC (Motorola XT1030): Two mystery Motorola phones hit the FCC, likely headed for Verizon

    People also need to learn that not all DROID-branded phones are Motorolas.

    I'm only aware of 3 OEM's that have made DROIDS.

    Yes. Motorola, HTC, and Samsung.

    While a majority came from Motorola, the DROID brand hasn't been exclusive to one OEM.

    BTW, it looks like the RAZR name might be going into a second retirement.

    I'm fine with Razr dropping. It was cool for the flashback, but doesn't need to be a thing.

    Samsung and HTC could easily make DROID for Verizon. I wouldn't be surprised to see a DROID from LG, ZTE, or Huawei either.

    LG DROID enV.

    And the big question:

    What will moto and Verizon do when they run out of rad adjectives?

    That's Verizon's problem, not Motorola's.

    via @evleaks: To clarify: DROID Ultra=XT1080, DROID MAXX=XT1080M, DROID Mini=XT1030, and Moto X=XT1060

    makes sense re: Ultra, Ultra Maxx. Those two phones will probably be running the same exact software version.
