The Motorola Droid 4 is the latest iteration of Verizon's flagship Android phone series. It sports a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 8MP rear-facing (1080p video capability) and 1.3MP front-facing cameras, and a microSD slot for up to 32GB of optional added storage.
We've been using a pre-production Droid 4 for some time, and the QWERTY keyboard --- which the iPhone will never have --- is the best keyboard we've seen on a Droid yet, and that's saying a lot, as the Droid 3's keyboard was superb.
Like the RAZR, which the design of the Droid 4 shares some obvious similarities to, the device has a fixed battery. It's 1785mAH, but it's always nice to be able to swap out batteries. Don't expect a Droid 4 MAXX with a 3300mAH battery or thereabouts, either. It's been revealed that the Droid RAZR MAXX was a fluke, and we should expect MAXX devices like that.
One thing of note: despite this being the first LTE QWERTY smartphone, there wasn't a huge line outside the East San Francisco Bay Area Verizon store we visited. In fact, there were four people there, including us, but we were the only one who wanted a Droid 4.
