Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

The fourth iteration of Motorola's ultra-popular DROID line for Verizon has arrived and with its 4-inch qHD scratch and scrape resistant screen, full QWERTY keyboard, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and 4G LTE connectivity, this may well be the best installment in the series yet! This device is quite reminiscent of the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX that've also just been released by Motorola and Verizon, the corners, the display, and even the back shape. The difference here is in the edge-lit keyboard, the loving embrace of the core DROID branding, and the fact that it's got a big 4 at the end of its name -- let's have a look at what it means to continue on with the DROID line.

This week Ben Rudolph, aka @BenThePCGuy has laid down a challenge for future Windows Phone users: tell them their #DROIDRAGE stories of how bad "adware" is on Android.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

When it comes to tablet warfare, Motorola seemed to get out in the open with a weapon of mass excellence with the XOOM pretty early, it being the first to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the first Android made specifically for the tablet form factor - now they've come back with the XOOM 2 aka the DROID XYBOARD and we're not so sure it's the same ground-breaking situation. What we've got here instead is certainly a solid package, this XYBOARD 10.1 making some improvements over the original XOOM, especially in form if you were one of the many people who said the XOOM was a hunk of metal with no style, (note: I was not one of those people, I still think the XOOM looks pretty awesome for the workhorse that it is,) and with LTE right out of the box, the XYBOARD provides the promise that the original XOOM took much MUCH to long to deliver on: 4G LTE connectivity. But is it enough for Motorola enthusiasts to want to upgrade from their first 10.1-inch love?

Motorola DROID 4 leaked in Beta build photos

Motorola DROID 4 leaked in Beta build photos

It appears extremely likely that the photos and specifications you're about to see belong to none other than the fourth in the basic-named DROID line from Verizon and Motorola. This is the DROID 4, if I may be so bold, ladies and gentlemen, and it looks rather similar to the rest of the very recent stylings of the Motorola family, having the same bent-in corners, dual ports (microHDMI and microUSB), and overall look of both previous DROID models and the ATRIX 2, the DROID RAZR, and the unconfirmed next-level XOOM tablet.
