Motorola DROID 4 spotted in Verizon’s internal system

November 7, 2011

With all the hubbub surrounding the DROID RAZR, HTC Rezound and Galaxy Nexus on Verizon's LTE network, QWERTY keyboard lovers are no doubt feeling a little left out. If the Samsung Stratosphere wasn't your cup of tea, there's good news: internal leaks show that the DROID 4 may be coming soon. The guys over at Droid-Life have got their hands on some new spy shots that show the DROID 4 is already being tested internally.

The DROID 4 will be the first of the original DROID line to have access to Verizon's LTE network. Tapered styling that apes the recently-reviewed DROID RAZR makes it look sharp, and unfortunately early units are also sharing its non-removable battery. We still don't know anything about the processor and RAM, but it does have a 4-inch screen running at a respectable qHD resolution.

The internal shots show that the DROID 4 began testing on November 6th. That would put the device in line for a launch this year, possibly as part of the "Motorola Portfolio" tentatively scheduled to start running after Thanksgiving. That would be a mighty fine time to start hyping up LTE versions of the XOOM 2 as well. We wait in hope for a QWERTY LTE DROID, Verizon - but we'd probably settle for an official Galaxy Nexus release date.

    what a joke this article is….look at the other phones listed, those phones already released and NOT on THOSE DATES.
    C’mon Man! get with it.

      Those look like dates the testing commenced (or wrapped up, but I doubt the Bionic passed testing way back in February), not release dates.

      Did I once mention a release date for the DROID 4? No. I did not. These are testing dates, and clearly explained as such in the article. I think you need to refresh your reading comprehension before you start criticizing those of us who do this for a living.
