just get a new plan then sale your Razr and that would offset the cost of the phone and the plan. Then make the secont line a "device tester line". Its only 10 bucks a month or you can cancel the line all together. Sounds more complicsted than it really is. Ive done it many times before.

just trade it later on. someone out there with a Droid 4 one day will miss having a slimmer device and want a Droid Razr. they're the same phone so why not? i could see that happening very easily.

If a December, 2011 release is still in the cards, there aren't many days left for that to happen....

It would be nice to see a December, 2011 release of the D4, but I am not holding my breath on that one.

I doubt that this will be released before the year is over. If they were to released it this month they should've at least released it before the holidays. But I see this more of at least a Q1 launch in 2012.

I do agree that a 1Q2012 launch is the highest probability outcome for the D4. I wonder if it will launch with ICS, or will ICS be a future upgrade?

I want to say and I hope that it does come with ICS installed because ICS should be open for manufactures to start sending the update to it's devices and with the Droid 4 hopefully releasing in Q1 2012 it just wouldn't make much sense for it to not to be released with ICS preinstalled. I'm not sure, but other than the Nexus devices, isn't Motorola usually the first send updates to their devices?

they have been consistently for the past 2 major Android updates (i won't count the XOOM because it was pretty much the Nexus tablet) also Droids of the original lineage have always come out with the latest version of Android installed out of the box so there's a pretty good chance that ICS is the cause for the Droid 4's delay.

it's probably ready to be launched but i think that they still want to get this baby out with ICS preinstalled.

I think that Verizon and Motorola should stop releasing newer and better devices every 2-3 months. Fairly soon, no one will want a smartphone because they won't be able to keep up with the latest devices. As is, by the time a "new" device hits the market, it is already outdated.

I have no problem with the release of the Droid Razor and the Droid 4. The Droid 4 will be Verizon's first LTE Slider. Something the Droid 3 should have been. As for the Razor it was just replacing one of it's top selling phones with one that has LTE.
