Official Photos Surface – Moto's Droid 4 Looks Like The RAZR's Smaller Cousin (With A Keyboard)

Since we first saw the Droid 4 last month, we've been waiting for more info on the phone that seems to perfect the ideas behind the Droid 3. Just yesterday, we saw official specs and a few scanned photos from a leaked Verizon document.

  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • 5 row slide-out QWERTY
  • Android 2.3.x (will most likely be upgraded to ICS)
  • 1785mAh battery
  • 4G LTE
