The latest model in the series that started Androidmania, the Motorola DROID 4
, has been rumored to be launching on December 22nd which is this Thursday. This DROID will not only have LTE connectivity, but will also feature the slide out physical QWERTY keyboard that is a hallmark of Motorola DROID handsets.
The image found on the DROIDDOES site reveals some specs of the Motorola DROID 4, including the 1.2GHz dual-core processor and the 1GB of DDR2 RAM aboard the device. An 8MP rear facing camera shoots video in 1080p while the front facing shooter takes self portraits and does video chat in HD. The DROID 4 is equipped with a 4inch qHD display and the 16GB of native storage can be pumped up to as much as 48GB with a microSD card. Android 2.3.5 is installed. If the physical QWERTY is anything like the one on the Motorola DROID 3, it will be a pleasure for those who are heavy duty users of text messaging or email.
Based on Verizon's pricing of phones like the Motorola DROID RAZR
and the Motorola DROID BIONIC
, we would expect this handset to be priced at $299.99 with a signed two-year pact. And if you want to view the page for yourself, good luck as with the previous image of the Motorola DROID 4 logo that showed up on the site
, it is like playing Russian Roulette and most of the time all that comes up on the site is a list of previous DROID models that have already hit the market.
