The Motorola Droid 4 Becomes a super thin QWERTY Reality
During an event at CES this year Motorola’s own CEO Sanjay Jha went on record explaining that Motorola Mobility will be producing fewer phone for the coming 2012 season. With the slip in production the company is said to focus more effort on its marketing, great idea…it works for Apple! But a flagship that will surely stay around during this down turn in production is the infamous Motorola Droid line up. With recent launch of the Droid RAZR we have seen a similar design sporting a full QWERTY show up as the Droid 4. The Droid 4 is real, excellently awesome and was made official by Verizon at this year’s CES convention.
The Droid series smart phones can be found in use all over the world and carry with them a certain following. Since the original Droid a slew of year improvements have brought us here, to the Droid 4. At first glance the new Droid 4 looks very similar to the recently launched Droid RAZR, and for good reason! The new Droid 4 is the new QWERTY loving super phone. The Droid 4 measures in at just a half of an inch thick with full dimensions of 5.00 x 2.65 x 0.50. 4 Inches of that is dedicated to the qHD quality touch screen that will provide your eyeball’s with a 540×960 pixel resolution. Slide open that nearly perfect screen and you’ll get access to a full five row QWERTY keyboard. Internally your new Droid 4 is pretty impressive as well. The Droid 4 will initially ship with Android version 2.3.5 and a promised Ice Cream Sandwich update in the near future. Our little green friend will get its go from a TI OMAP4430 Dual core 1.2 GHz processor, internal graphics processor, 1 GB of RAM and up to 16 GB of internal storage. Of course you can also expect expandable microSD or microSDHC memory up to 32 GB. Around back the new Droid 4 sports an 8 mega pixel camera with LED flash, auto focus, geo tagging, white balance and video recording in full 1080p HD at 30 fps. You can also get your video conferencing on with its 1.3 mega pixel shooter up front. Additional connectivity specs feature Verizon’s super fast 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, micro USB 2.0, micro HDMI, GPS and the very latest in Bluetooth version 4.0. While the price and launch date were not available at its unveiling, it seems that Droid-Life has sourced some internal documents that will price the Droid 4 at $249 on a new contract, unfortunately the ‘when’ is still in question, however a Q1 2012 rumor on release is floating around….sound good?
