    No the D3 uses a thinner and wider battery than the previous Droids.

    I have a cord at home and at work. No problems except if I'm out for long periods of time, then I worry and at movies I power off. But I have no life, so no worries for me.

    I went to my local Verizon store today to check out their Droid RAZR floor model and WOW that thing is fast. Screen lags were basically non-existent, the screen rotation animations were excellent, and the 4G was obscenely fast...BUT it feels just a bit too big in my hand. Don't get me wrong...it's super thin...but when I'm not typing, I'm used to using the phone one-handed and the RAZR at 4.3" requires a bit of stretching your thumb to make it work.

    SO the Droid 4 it is...at 4" it's going to be perfect. I really hope this drops for the holidays and not next Spring/Summer as some sites have suggested...

    Too bad....I'm still using my OG Droid, which is running fine on CM 7.1...this phone is definitely tempting but the non-removable battery is a deal-breaker for me...just as the non-removable memory card may be for the Nexus. :-/

    The Droid 3 is one of the most solid feeling phones I have used. This new Droid 4 may be just the ticket for us fat fingered keyboard lovers.

    Here is the Droid Life release:

    [h=2]Motorola DROID 4 Pops Up in Variety of Verizon Systems, How Close are We to a Release?[/h]by: Kellex | posted 11.07.11 | News
    [​IMG]
    The Motorola DROID 4 may be closer than any of us had imagined. We brought you the first photos of the device a couple of weeks back leading us to wonder when it may appear, as the device pictured looked almost ready for prime time. So now that we are seeing it appear in a couple of different Verizon systems, we wonder if it could be Moto and Verizon’s big December release?
    You may remember that the XOOM 2 popped up in this same system with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models on October 23 and is now tentatively-scheduled for a November 30 release. So if the D4 is now showing up for testing purposes and for internal system setup, there is a chance that it could be here within a month or two. Now, we won’t know for sure if the XOOM 2 will be here at the end of the month until we get to the end of the month, so let’s not place any bets on the D4 just yet. The month of December is wide open, without anything currently rumored though.
    Shot of the D4 in Device Manager after the break.

    Still ready to have a slider with 4G LTE and impressive specs? I’m assuming the Stratosphere wasn’t necessarily what any of you were looking for.
    Cheers ___!

    I would rather it be thick and have a removable battery.

    Let me get this straight, because YOU bought a phone, all progress on phone development should stop until your contract is up and YOU are ready to buy another one?

    I didnt realize the world revolved around you. Those of us who are just now getting to the upgrade point are glad to see we have new options. Just like you will have options we dont when your next upgrade cycle comes around.

    x2...I don't quite understand the folks who complain about manufacturers (Moto, in this case) releasing devices soon after they bought one.

    Are there particular features that your current phone doesn't have that you really need? If so, then why did you buy the phone in the first place?

    Or is it just that you want to have the newest device available for pure vanity?

    Everyone knew that LTE was on the way. Everyone knew the features they desired. If you didn't want to wait, then I'm sorry. These devices were gonna come out sometime whether it be sooner or later.

    The answer is 42.
    Oh, wait, you mean to tell me you need to know the question now?
    Well, I can't answer that.

    Something must be wrong with your droid 3. I get more than a day of battery life on mine.

    But to be fair, in the leaked pictures of the Droid RAZR, the start up screen originally said "DROID HD."
