    If the Droid 4 has ICS I would switch. Once you have ICS though (Nexus) -- it's hard to go back :(

    My Razr's battery works just fine, I don't see the need for this version. But the droid 4 looks nice, I'll probably get it for my next upgrade; unless the droid 5 is being talked about by then.

    Looks like the Droid will have a decent physical keyboard. I had an LG Voyager before I got the OG Droid and not having separate keys for numbers was strange for me.

    Maybe not - Global capable?

    I checked Motorola's web site to see if there is a new phone coming with global capabilities. I knew Sprint already had a phone with CDMA, LTE and global capabilities. Verizon wouldn't stand for that, right? Ah ha! - droid 4! I check the specs and there's CDMA, LTE... and no GSM, no HSDPA, no global anything. :frown:

    Is Verizon leaving us travelers to choose from iPhones and warmed-over HTCs? Hopefully there's good news somewhere.

    On droid-life there was an article saying that GSM would be enabled sometime in the near future on the D4

    I really want to switch back to Moto and the real DROID brand, but they got to bring something better to the table. I have a Rezound, I love it but I miss the moto feel. My Droid and Droid X just felt solid, like I could throw it threw a wall pick it up and continue on about my day. Not so much with the Rezound and Gnex. My next purchase will be at the end of March, I hope there is something better. I'm not feeling the latest phones, seems like they could have stepped up the D4 a bit more.

    I kinda feel the same about the RAZR Maxx. I think the added thickness might make it a little easier to grip. But after experiencing ICS on my Gnex I don't think it could go back to GB.

    Unfortunately phones are moving to thin and light so my guess is those tough Moto days are gone.

    the pictures do show capacitive buttons and ics doesnt need them at all so I have to agree on the doubtfulness of pre-installed ics

    Agreed. If it had ics and it didn't stick with the same screen the Droid 3 had, I'd definitely buy the Droid 4.

    Indeed. Makes me mad that just a couple of months after buying the RAZR they annouce one with a bigger battery -why not releasing the phone with the bigger battery to begin with?

    It's true what they say about moto devices: "Motorola: resentment comes standard with every phone"
