    I thought the Droid 3 was a solid phone. Just couldn't live without 4G for the next 2 years. This Droid 4 looks great.

    Non-removable battery kills it for me. I have had a spare (sometimes extended) battery for every phone that I have owned and have switched them during the occasional heavy use day. I also tend to keep my phones for about 3 years and these batteries lose significant charge life after 2 years. Keeping my extra battery at half charge and in the fridge makes it last more than 3 years so that I still have 1 good battery by the end of my phone's life.

    Edit: Although I haven't had to do a battery pull on my Droid for months, I have had to do that a few times. What do you do when the battery is non-removable?

    Why would they put the "@" symbol there? I like it where it is on the DROID3!!!

    It's where it is on a PC keyboard.

    I love my d3, but the keyboard has been acting up lately. Won't register the space bar. People were saying its software not hardware, but it didn't get any better with the update.

    Maybe if I make a record of returning my d3 I'll get a d4 when I return my d3 for the 10th time, lol.

    But I'm with the concerned crowd about battery pull...maybe there will be a reset?

    I just think its looks kinda blocky. Not sleek at all. The screen looks like a huge hump on top of it.




    The only thing is that the pics make it look like it has the rubber keyboard like the D1/D2, please dont go back to that. I like the D3 keyboard a whole lot better.

    Personally, this has me greatly excited! I was looking into the Prime, or the Nexus, but I was just not liking the lack of a slide out keyboard. Being a teen hacker, I am CONSTANTLY texting on the go, and walking and texting can be made simple by a physical keyboard, so I don't have to look down. Also, I love the idea that even when hacking, and I happen to corrupt my soft keyboard, I still have a handy slideout keyboard in case, as I have ruined quite a few soft keyboard apps with my tinkering. Also, I have been with the droid model since it was released, and I am currently on D2G, sitting on it, since the D3 didn't look that much better. I'm hoping this Droid model wont be more hype than product like the D3 was.

    To be honest guys, whether is has ICS, or Froyo, it really doesn't matter, because if you do just a wee bit of reading and asking around, you will find that putting a rom on your phone is quite simple, and you can do away with your hated blur, or you can get ICS like you want, or you can make this thing look like the OG. So that really shouldn't even enter your mind when buying this phone. Plus, I'm seeing ICS put on this phone. If not before it launches, very soon after. If they didn't it would be like selling a new ferrari with a 3 year old engine thats been sitting on the shelf.

    So you thought the d2 was a huge upgrade over d1, but didn't think d3 was much better than d2? Sounds backwards to me...

    4G LTE connectivity.

    On Howard Forums they said that it does have a removable battery. I wonder who's right...

    Agreed.

    Of course they meant a phone with a slide-out keyboard, 4G LTE, and a dual-core processor.

    As a D3 owner, this pisses me off.

    Motorola has finally done it. I'm through with them. I cut them some slack on MotoBlur, Pentile, and even locked bootloaders....

    I know its all apart of the "game". Release something cool, people go buy it, and then release something cooler later to keep money coming in. But, seeing this only 3 months after the DROID 3 came out, after having a three year trend of releasing the next iteration on a yearly basis, pisses me off. I've been a loyal Motorola DROID user and while the company has made some not so smart decisions in the past, this is the first time I feel like I've been taken advantage of.

    Well, if the bionic teaches us anything, the d4 could still be more than a year away.....

    Un-f'ing-believable. The ONE thing I wanted was a slider with 4g. Now Im stuck with Bionic for 2yrs unless I want to buy off contract for, presumably, $600 :mad:
