    Sorry guys I didn't know where else to post this. With the Galaxy S4 just coming out, and the fact that I am due for an upgrade, I have been wondering if there will be a D5. I LOVE my Droid 4 and one of the reasons I like it so much is the keyboard. I am really hoping they continue with the keyboard on the Droid number phones. I don't want to end up upgrading just to find out they're coming out with a D5 that will compete with the S4. I don't mind waiting because I am still happy with this phone. If they made a D5 with a nice keyboard, 2+ GB of RAM, a nice quad core or dual quad core processor, and all of the nice features of the new phones, I would be sooo happy! I really like my keyboard and am not wanting to lose it. What do you guys think? Has anyone heard anything? Thanks!

    I literally check the web every single day looking for evidence of a Droid 5. I'm in the same position, I got an upgrade a few weeks ago, and I don't want to lock myself into some other phone for 2 years just to have the D5 come out in a few months.

    That being said, I have found nothing about a Droid 5. No rumors, no information, nothing. All I've heard is people mention how Motorola doesn't intend to make one. I've tweeted Verizon a few times with no response. At this point I'd say the Droid 5 isn't going to happen.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    I've heard nothing, not even a single rumor.

    With everyone competing for how slim devices can get, it's hard to imagine a D5 coming out especially if there haven't been any rumors by now.

    Looks like the end of the line for the venerable Droid series.

    Well moto is pushing forward with their x-phone line. I wonder if they will be x-phone or droid branded on VZW and I wonder if they will have a keyboarded xphone?

    With exception to moto X or whatever it's gonna be called I haven't seen any other rumors however at d-11 Dennis Woodside as well as confirming the Moto X will be coming in the fall he also said Motorola will be releasing many devices between now and the fall. I am hoping 1 of them will be the droid 5 or a X phone with keyboard however their gonna market it

    This is pretty much where I am. It sounds like the Moto X will be a line of phones and I'm hoping one of them will have a keyboard. I'm not holding my breath though. By coincidence, I just noticed this on on teh DF main page: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/an...l-qwerty-keyboard-case-samsung-galaxy-s4.html This type of add on may be the future. If they actually work well.

    Since they've been releasing their keyboard device yearly I would expect one near the end of the year around the same time as the others.

    The only problem I can see with an add-on keyboard is bluetooth is a battery killer.

    I think it sucks that they're completely phasing out keyboards on phone. I don't think my phone is too bulky or thick with its keyboard. Man I would love a Droid 5...

    Not for long exhaustive typing tasks.

    Agree. Plus with the keyboard you can type and still have the whole screen.
