Motorola DROID 4 fileted like a fish by iFixit
Just launched this past Friday, the Motorola DROID 4 has already been taken apart by iFixit and examined. What the latter has discovered is that with this iteration of the DROID, Motorola has incorporated the physical QWERTY keyboard into the motherboard. That means if one of the keys on the QWERTY stops working, the entire motherboard needs to be replaced. Ouch! On the other hand the LCD is not connected to the glass display which means it the screen shatters, only the glass will need to be replaced.

Another change is with the battery, which goes against DROID tradition by not being removable. Of course, iFixit not only peeled off the warning sticker (which does NOT state that it can't be removed under penalty of law) but also was able to pry the battery out of the housing. And at the end of the day, everything was exactly where it should be.

If seeing the Motorola DROID 4 gutted like a Law and Order victim doesn't bother you, check out the pictures below. And if you want to see the device alive and well, check out our Motorola DROID 4 review!
