The latest RAZR-looking, 5-row-keyboard-sliding, LTE-packing Droid incarnation - the Motorola Droid 4 - went live today on VZW.com and at Verizon Wireless stores nationwide. The Droid 4 is the first LTE-enabled device in the family which makes it much more appealing to those of you who have been shying away from Moto's iconic line due to data speed constraints.
The Droid 4's full specs include:
- 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 processor
- 1GB of RAM
- Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable in the future)
- 4-inch qHD "scratch-and-scrape resistant" display with Gorilla glass
- 16GB internal memory, up to 32 GB microSD card supported
- Full 5-row LED edge-lit laser-cut QWERTY keyboard
- 8MP rear shooter with 1080p HD video capture
- 1.3MP 720p HD front-facing camera
- 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
- 179g (6.31oz)
- 2.8 (w) x 5.0 (h) x 0.5 (d) inches
- CDMA 800, 1900 EVDO REV A/LTE B13 700
- 1785 mAh battery
- Talk time - 12.5 hours, standby time - 8.5 days
Compared to the Droid 3, this device is faster and better all around - it has a faster processor, supports faster data speeds over LTE, and doubles up on the RAM (1GB vs 512MB). The screen resolution remains the same - qHD (540x960), but the body itself is slightly larger in 2 dimensions, leaving the thickness pretty much the same as before.
You can get more intimate with the Droid 4 by watching our CES hands-on (we were kind of in love - easily the best keyboard slider I've personally handled to date), the 13-minute Wirefly overview, the official video below, or by heading to your local Verizon store and playing with one in person.
Of course, if you've already figured out that the Droid 4 is indeed the droid you're looking for, just pick it up on the web with free overnight shipping - chances are, you'll see it before you can say DRRROOOOOOID.
