    Verizon decided to let the cat officially out of the bag on the Motorola Droid 4. They just issued their press release officially launching the phone. The specs line up with what we already knew. It is pretty much a slightly smaller (4-inch screen) version of the Droid RAZR but with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. We should see it available within the next few "coming weeks", according to their presser. Here it is below:

    Wow

    So less than 8 months later, they have another droid coming out. Im over the moto spawning of droid devices. It appears that every new version with some minor tweaks gets the green light. Meanwhile my droid 3, riddled with issues, weaps. I can only hope that after a few more send backs, they upgrade me to the D4. Or something that works.

    What happens to your D3? Can you share your experiences?

    Where to begin:

    Camera has blue tint to every picture on stock camera
    Takes over 10 seconds to focus and take a picture

    Camcorder has a rack focusing issue where it never stays in focus
    aperture issues where the camera stops to closed creating a black frame, then re racks focus

    Rebooting constantly, even after the fix of google sync, which worked for a good time, they are back

    front facing camera is no longer working, wiped to factory and still wont work

    Impossible to reboot phone without DROID, and the SD card initialize noise

    Keypad is far worse at staying closed then the D1 or D2 ever was.

    Im stuck with this NON HD camera, which is why I choose the D3. Until 2013!!! Then I hear about this Droid 4, less then a year later?!?! The HD camcorder is why I bought the D3, and I cant use ANY of those features effectively. I have no recourse of action. But get yet ANOTHER refurb'd phone with the same issues.

    I know tech moves fast but this is unreal. The d3 never should have been made and Im a fool for buying it.
