    So the droid4's global capabilities have officially become a legendary myth in my book. We all know the facts, fully gsm capable (from the FCC filing) microsim slot confirmed from leaked source pics with the back cover off, and yet...

    Not ONE thing from Verizon on ANY literature, advertising or whatsoever using the term "global" or global capable". Even going as far as to specifically put a big N for NO under the global option box in it's leaked internal big red system feature list.

    Now that pretty much all the official ads and specs ave been leaked (all straight from Verizon). Not one of them mentions global anywhere, even the new one leaked from droiddoes today listing every possible future on the phone. Why would they take the time to list every possible selling point they can think of and leave out such a huge one?

    I'm seriously starting to think it is not global capable, although the specs would say otherwise... Thoughts?

    I'm not one to let facts or overwhelming evidence stop me from clinging to my Beliefs (though some still refer to them as myths!!). Based on that I am still going with Hoffa's body / Grassy knoll / Bigfoot. :)

    Heh, you don't have to convince me, I'm praying it will indeed be global since the specs all point to it and just hope that Verizon isn't pushing it as global ready, although it is.. I don't know.. it's just driving me nuts we don't have confirmation

    I took the wife by Dealey Plaza one day and we saw Bigfoot holding Hoffa's body standing on the Grassy knoll .
    Now we'll know in February . Maybe !

    regardless of if it is global or not....it hasnt even been a year since the 3 was released. regardless of specs or rumors or hype I will not even look at this phone. Moto needs to stop rushing products and focus on quality.

    I mean seriously....are we going to see the Droid 5 by next year's fiscal end? Too much too soon....

    A thought just popped into my head.
    It's speculation appropriate in this thread:
    Call the next keyboard Droid the D4G, instead.
    Then the D5 won't arrive so far ahead.

    Was Bigfoot using his Droid 4 to do a facebook check-in?

    Like someone said. It will probably be the D4G. They will release the D4 then once sales slow, they'll release the Global probably. Same thing they did with D2-D2G, Bionic-Razr, D3-D4. :)

    No , Droid 10 with flexible laser display and 20 core processor , 12gb ram , one terabyte of storage , thought activated dialing and search , VZW will leak pictures then tease us for months before it arrives only to be 2 months out dated . :)

    Sorry had to poke a little fun at VZW's expense . dancedroiddancedroiddancedroiddancedroid:icon_ devil:

    Maybe I'm wrong but wouldn't the sin card spot be for the 4g LTE, and maybe it does not have global support. Sorry if I'm wrong on that one.

    Agreed, but I think I do remember reading somewhere about this being a world phone!

    I don't think so. At this rate the D10 is going to be out next year, and its probably just going to be the same ol, same ol... ;)

    That would be funnier if they had released the D4 in Dec 20111.

    ETA oh you meant in 2013 the d10 will be released. Sorry its early. Maybe it'll be funnier later this morning.

    D4 is global: check GSM / WCDMA (EU bands) support here: MOTODEV > Products > DROID 4 by Motorola, XT894

    Seems like there will be EU version too. As "Droid RAZR" and "RAZR" hardware is identical, only the international version has flexed off LTE and CDMA.

    It has global hardware, yes, which will be disabled by vzw. The D4 will not function as a 'world phone'. But, like it was with the D2, look for a global version, the D4G, maybe in Q2.

    Thoughts are the Droid 4 MAXX will be global capable just like they did with the D2 and D2Global. Bump up a few specs, in this case, better battery and global capability and you have a repeat of history (more or less).
