Droid 4 VZW

When we heard the Droid 3 was given its end-of-life discontinuation, we knew the Droid 4 couldn’t be far off. There is no exact date but it’s one step closer. Verizon announced the Droid 4 by Motorola at CES. They are calling it the “thinnest and most powerful  4G LTE QWERTY smartphone”. That’s a lot of qualifiers but we’ll hold off judgement. The Droid 4 is .5 inches thick with a slide out 5-row QWERTY keyboard. It has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB built-in memory, a 8MP camera with 1080p video capture, and a 4-inch qHD display. Also on board, you’ll find some Motorola proprietary additions such as MotoCast for streaming, Smart Actions, Mirror Mode, and  nanocoating for splash resistance. The phone ships with Gingerbread but will be upgraded to ICS. Availability is in “the coming weeks”
