    Our friends over at Droid-Life got hold of some juicy info on the Motorola Droid 4. First, they are sticking to their guns that it might be released on December 8th at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Also, we now have some specs for the device, and several folks are saying it is what the Droid 3 should have been. In fact, we also have a comparison pic that includes the Droid 3, the Droid 4 and the Droid RAZR. Furthermore, Verizon training for the new device has supposedly already begun. Here are the specs, followed by a link to several useful pics, including the comparison to other phones:
    • 4″ screen (LCD or AMOLED unknown at this time)
    • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
    • 1GB of RAM, DROID RAZR styling
    • 5-row slideout side-lit keyboard
    • 4G LTE
    • Front camera for video chatting
    • 8MP rear camera
    Here is a link to several more pics: Droid 4 Pics

    NO MOTO NO!

    Stop making all your devices look like each other! This phone is essentially a Razr with a keyboard. Almost in the same way the Bionic was a Droid 3 with no keyboard. The D4 looks identical to the RAZR. Don't they remember the Razr? They made all their phones look like it and look where that got them.

    I know that moto isn't alone in this, but you'd think that after the razr burn they'd try harder.

    We need a support group. I feel like a piece of dirt. :(

    At least tell me it's not a world phone.

At some point we all have to settle! Or do as i have and spend too dang much on phones...lol Thousands..lol but I sell too and my little business is enough to feed my obsession ...lol I need to stop so my profits will be going to essentials lol...peace!

    Maybe a dozen times I've counseled others that being an Android phone-lover is a dangerous job. But I have to say those words go down a thousand times harder when it's your throat and not the other guy who has to swallow them. This sucks.

    Excuse me while I go find a room to scream.... :mad::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_ devil::icon_evil::mad::mad:

    EDIT: OK, let me grasp at a straw...I got the Radio Shack $100 deal. Dear lord of Android, let the D4 come out at $299 and NEVER see the light of a 1-penny Amazon sale. Can I get an amen?...

    I too am disappointed that my D3 is being so quickly replaced. At least we know that the D4 looks ugly as sin, that's my only saving grace right now.

    Sorry to jack with your saving grace but I think the Droid 4 looks amazing. I love it.

    The Droid 4 looks sick! Too bad the screen wasn't atleast 4.3 inches. Does anyone know if the touch buttons are white like they are on my D1, or are they "invisible" unless activated?

    To each his own I guess.

    I guess D3->D4 is a longer upgrade cycle then the Bionic->Razr was. That'll be my new saving grace.

    I think D2 owners got it worse than the D3 owners will if this rumor pans out. If the D2G wasn't the ultimate kick in the jewels, I don't know what is lol :p

    After having the OG since launch I feel about slide out keyboards as I do capacitive buttons...OBSOLETE. Just as the world will one day be devoid of books, we will also see the extinction of hard keyboards. Don't get me wrong, I love the older keyboards that had big, loud buttons (the satisfaction of audible confirmation :happy3: ) however if you don't keep an open and ever-evolving mind when it comes to technology, you're lost in the dust of changing times. Nexus for me for the time being!

    I've decided that for me, the constant viewing of the new devices so close together, is a bad time investment as I will wind up in that constant I want state...lol so I'm stopping with the razr...Then if something COMPLETELY different comes out, then maybe I will consider. I have too many as it is. Verizon and the competitors have gotten what they wanted out of me for a while. Time to enjoy what I have..Always loved and mainly stuck with Motorola so I'm good:)

    Thanks guys, the commiseration (well, from some of you!) and fellowship are a huge support for me in this difficult time. I am beginning to see that I can deal with this. I'm strong enough.

    Seriously, here is my new cynical outlook: why am I OK with the D3 (owned less than 2 months) when a clearly superior (I say that, because everyone I work with keeps asking me, "Are you upset about the new Droid???") phone is days away? The answer will sound absurd and impossible (yet compellingly truthy at the same time):

    Because my contract is up in October of 2013 (gulp), and I KNOW IN TWO YEARS THAT WHATEVER PHONE IS/ARE AVAILABLE WILL TOTALLY KICK TODAY'S DROID 4 BUTT! HAH! So there. I also figure that EVEN IF I sold my D3 and bought the D4, by March of next year I'd be in a similar predicament. I will not be Verizon's and Motorola's tool!

    Yeah, I keep telling myself that. And it's working, a little bit.

    Motorola has shown over the last 4 months that they have no customer loyalty. I expect my phone to be obsolete by other phones, but to be replaced by the next generation of the same phone less than 6 months is down right insulting. The D3 will be my last Motorola product (after 6 years of buying their phones). Their only concern is getting new customers, once you've bought their phone, you are no longer useful to them. Even after I bought the OG Droid and then the N1 came out I was ok, but this is unforgiveable.

    It would be great to see if Moto would grant some sort of trade in policy for D3 owners, but even then I'm not sure I would trust them again.

    WHY WHY WHY only a 4" screen... WTF... if it's going to look like a damn razr then make it literally a razr with a keyboard... instead of a small razr with a keyboard >_>

    BAH!!!! I will probably get rid of my bionic for this... the on screen keyboard is still driving me nuts.

    to be fair, the vast majority of their customers won't be in the market for a new phone for 20-24 months. C'mon, they're only supposed to roll out a new phone every 2 years on your upgrade schedule?!?

    They just can't win. People were clamoring for a new slider, many claiming they didn't care about LTE...and 6 months later when they can bring it out with LTE people are upset. People act like a marginal upgrade renders their 6 month old phone a POS.
