TechnoBuffalo got its hand on the dummy unit of the upcoming Motorola DROID 4 and as a result, we have a multitude of pictures showing what the real working model will look like when it is launched, most likely in February...

A bunch of BB owners are really hoping the D4 is released before February 2nd....

wow, i like how it has the sort of octagonal edges like the razr.. i'm not a fan of motorola at all but they do have a pretty good design team.

I am sure it is coming for it. But I will be surprised if ICS is the standard before the summer selling season.

I'm looking forward to the first couple weeks of reviews after its released. I'd like this to be my next phone, but I have reservations.

Take this POS along with the bionic, evo 3d, razr, and that new POS nexus and put it in the garbage because thats what they are. LAGGY and full of problems.

Maybe I'm nitpicking, but I'm kind of curious why they say 1GB "nearly" doubles 512MB when it exactly doubles it... or am I missing something?

By the way, they fixed the article. Go reread it.

I hope this is the monster device those who want physical keyboards deserve. My Daughter owns the Captivate Glide on AT&T and it is a very good phone except for the keyboard, which is flat keyed and just bland in it's design and function. There is still a large demand for QWERTY love, and this could cater to them. This bad boy was so on my radar. I really was blown away by the RAZR and it's performance, and I liked both the Photon on Sprint and the original Atrix on AT&T (never played with the Atrix 2). And I loved the Droid 3. I am a huge Motorola fan these days. I am cheering for it.

The only down-side that I can see at the moment for the D4 is the potential February 2nd release date. Based on my friends who have BBs and are wanting to move to the D4 reaction, they are really wishing the D4 was available NOW. Maybe VZW will come to its senses and release the D4 sooner? (Dunno)

ICS is only for the galaxy nexus for the time being. Dont worry this will get ics down the road.

i think that if the Feb launch stays true this will probably have ICS preloaded as all Droids in the original lineage have always had the latest version of Android out of the box.

Sorry, but to me this thing just looks a razr with a slide out.....
Still damn sexy though I wish sprint would offer more of a variety

My only complaint on the Droid 3 is the camera quality. Megapixels mean nothing when the pictures have odd looking color tones. Hopefully that is improved with the Droid 4. Since I don't live in a 4G area, I probably won't be getting the Droid 4 unless something happens to either my Droid 2 or Droid 3. Droid 5 (if they make it) will probably be out around the time I get 4G and my Droid 2 is eligible for upgade.

the weird picture color tones was fixed with an update.

I didn't know that. That's why you're the King! Ironically though, after my post, my wife's Droid 2 started having serious problems. Guess I'll probably be getting the Droid 4 after all.

the Droid 3 was a great upgrade from the 2 for me so i'm sure you guys will love the 4. c:

So glad I have the RAZR - why would anyone choose this phone (if specs are true) over a RAZR? Besides having an actual keyboard.
31. cthunder posted on 01 Jan 2012, 20:08 0 0
It's simple. Some people just prefer Qwerty kybd phones over a regular one. I have big hands and for someone like me, a qwerty kybd is the way to go. I can type much faster on a kybd than I can on a virtual kybd. It's all about preference.

@networkdood - I agree completely. However, I understand the part about needing a keyboard. Until July, 2010, I was a BB owner because of the keyboard. I finally got fed up enough with RIM that I decided to try an Android phone without a keyboard and went with the X. By September, I had migrated completely to the X and haven't looked back. But I can understand the reluctance to give up a keyboard.
For those who are dependent on a physical keyboard, the D4 gives them close to the RAZR in screen size, while having the same specs (CPU, RAM, display resolution, etc.) and they get to have a good keyboard as well. They are just wishing VZW would release the D4 now instead of in February.

I had a TILT I in 2008, prior to switching to non-keyboard phones - I thought I would miss the keyboard, but I do not. However, if the right phone came along, with a keyboard, I would consider it.

Verizon could have easily released this phone as the D3....same specs exact...as one is 3g and global...and the D4 is LTE...Motorola had LTE radios when the D3 was released...i guess the D5 will be global....

Latest rumor I heard is the D4 is gonna have ICS, but really, really wants to make sure all the bugs are out. lol
