The Motorola DROID 4 is looking to be an excellent LTE device with a keyboard for big red, but like many devices launched from Verizon in the recent past it still seems up in the air. After failing to launch around the rumored launch dates in December we are now seeing cases and accessories hit Verizon stores, but the phone is still no where to be found.

Now we can’t really say they missed the launch date because nothing was ever set in stone or remotely confirmed. Just like the Galaxy Nexus there was however many official leaks highly suggesting a date, that was then missed or pushed back. It seems that lately Verizon has been having a hard time getting everything in order in time for release dates.

While we still don’t have any concrete details or an official release date we are now aiming for an early February launch after CES. The possibility of a redesign and possibly Ice Cream Sandwich at launch is another idea but doubtful, although many would love that. We’ll probably get plenty of hands on with the new Motorola DROID 4 at CES 2012 so stay tuned as we’ll have the entire crew there to snatch up as much Android goodness as possible.
