The Droid 4 is the latest iteration in the venerable Droid series. Sporting Motorola's new trademark slightly octagon-ish shape, a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, LTE, and an 8MP rear-shooter, this device brings the Droid series into the world of the future yet again. That future starts February 10th, if this leaked internal Verizon document is to be believed.


An anonymous, but trusted, source sent us this doc from Verizon's internal equipment guide that shows the Droid 4 will launch via all channels February 10th, 2012. Previous rumors have suggested a February 9th release date, and either date is plausible considering Verizon tends to prefer either Thursday or Friday device launches. The Galaxy Nexus, for example, was rumored to launch on December 9th, a Friday, but a service outage pushed back the release. The next available launch date was Thursday, December 15th, which is when the flagship ICS device launched. The Droid RAZR launched on a Friday, as well.

While it's not unprecedented that info like this can change (as in the case of the Galaxy Nexus), this is the most solid info we have yet on the Droid 4's release date. So, who's going to pick one up?

Thanks, Anon!

    This phone will be rendered obsolete before month's end at MWC.

    Wirefly dropped the Droid 3 down to $0, threw in the desk dock and car dock for free as well. I bet because of the impending Droid 4 launch. Droid 3 is still a good phone and getting ICS soon. I never use 4G on my nexus so I figured why spend another $300 on a 4G phone when I can have all this free stuff?

    Saying you don't use 4G is like saying you prefer dialup over dsl or cable Internet. If you have it and don't use it, you are only depriving yourself. If you buy a 3G phone and your city has 4G, then you are screwing yourself!!!!!
