I had also read that the Ultra was going to have an 8 core processor.
Nope. Dual-core processor, with quad-core graphics, from the specs page. Looks like all three have the same processor (same speeds, at least), though without actually identifying the processor model number, it's hard to know for sure. Of course, if that's true, that would also make the Mini the most capable, with the smallest screen... Frustratingly, they don't give actual resolutions for the three. Least not on the Verizon pages.
Ah, yup, checked Motorola's website, and all three are powered by the Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System processors, all clocked the same, all running 720P. So, they'll all perform exactly the same, but MAXX will the have the best battery life, and the Mini will have the highest ppi (I'll leave that to the reader to decide if that's a good thing or not). Personally I think I'd rather go for the Mini, even without considering price. I like to be able to use my phones one-handed, and 5" is just way too big for that. And considering you're not giving up any performance or features for it, at a *much* reduced price... Yeah, I'll definitely take the Mini.
I want to know more about the clear pixel camera. Its been noted by moto that this is a legit thing and will save all the specifics for the moto x release. Also im hoping since this is in house the its optimized to the max so performance with a 720p screen and dual core processor on android 4.3 should be as smooth as.... butter yep i said it.
