Motorola DROID 4 release date now set for February 10

Motorola DROID 4 release date now set for February 10
Do you have your mind set on the upcoming Motorola DROID 4? In that case, you have probably heard yesterday's rumors hinting that the smartphone is scheduled for launch on February 9. However, the tip that we just received indicates that there has been a little change of plans. 

According to a spy shot that we found in our mailbox this morning, The Motorola DROID 4 will be released on February 10. Sure, it is only a one day difference, but imagine how frustrating it would be driving all the way to a Verizon store only to find out that the smartphone you want to get will be arriving on the following day.


Sadly, the photo does not reveal any clues regarding the on-contract price of the Motorola DROID 4, but if earlier leaks are on the right track, the smartphone will bear a $199 price tag. Data embedded in the image, however, indicates that the image has been taken on February 2, meaning that the information on the screen should be up to date.

It is worth noting that the leaked release date should not be considered official even though it comes from Verizon's internal equipment guide. We have seen identical leaks before only to get disappointed later when the smartphone in question does not launch on the projected date. On the other hand, considering that the Motorola DROID 4 has already appeared on the DROIDDOES web site, its release should not be too far off.

Thanks to our tipster!

I'm ready for this phone. I've been saving my upgrade for a year trying to decide which device I would be using it on.

yeah, you're right, single core(droid 2), dual core 1.0ghz(droid 3) and 512mb ram with no 4g is the same as as 1.2ghz dual core, 1gb ram and 4g

Not really, The Droid 2 was release August of 2010. And the Droid Global 2 was release at the end of Nov that year. The Droid 3 which was a much better phone than the Droid 2 or global was released in July last year. Almost a full year over the previous 2 phones. And now they are adding the Droid 4 with better specs and LTE which they should have done with the Droid 3. This will be Verizon's 1st QWERTY kybd phone with LTE.

Wow, didn't realize this phone was on the Verizon network. Good looking out. Then I guess I should say the 1st Dual Core Qwerty kybd phone on the Verizon network.

@cthunder: The 1st dual-core with physical keyboard on Verizon was the Droid 3. So, try again. This will be the 1st dual-core with physical keyboard on Verizon's 4G LTE.
