Thin, Kevlar-clad device mentioned on apparent placeholder site

If you listened to Android Central podcast 139 a couple of weeks back, you might've caught our own Phil Nickinson talking about the Motorola Droid Ultra, Droid Ultra Mini and Droid Ultra Maxx, a new line of Moto-built, Verizon-bound phones. The Ultra, according to our source, was to pack a 5-inch screen and be even thinner than the original Droid RAZR. Check out the clip below.

Today we've got some of the first signs that of the "Ultra" line's existence, in the form of what seems to be a placeholder page on Motorola.com. Under the subheading "Think Thin," the Droid Ultra is described thusly —

Available in a bunch of glossy colors, this high-grade DuPont™ Kevlar body proves you can be even thinner and still be tough as steel.

The rest of the page's contents — including specs — appears to have been pulled from the Droid RAZR M's product page. In addition, there's no image of the purported device. Nevertheless, we're about due new hardware from Motorola, and if the Moto X is to be its mid-range hero device for the fall, it makes sense that Verizon's Droid series would also see a refresh around the same time.

We'll keep you posted with any further Droid Ultra developments. In the meantime, you can share your thoughts down in the comments.
