I've tried very hard to not lose sight of the fact that the Droid 4 is still a mirage. It'll come out eventually-whether it's called Droid 4 or something else-but it isn't on the market yet.
When I buy a phone, I make sure it's the most advanced phone that suits my needs. My main phone must have a keyboard, which limits my choices. That might be a blessing in disguise, though.
I bought the newest phone with a physical keyboard that was available at the time. I know that's the best I can do.
Carriers and manufacturers will exploit the fact that the cell phone has become an indispensible commodity. On top of that, phones are highly-personal devices. We carry them everywhere with us, keep thousands of pictures and hundreds of phone numbers in them and sync our Facebook accounts to them. Like cars, phones need to suit people's needs and tastes. Carriers and manufacturers will exploit that, too.
As long as my phone isn't an old junker, still works right and lets me do what I want with it, I'm happy.
