In an expansion that can only be called global-minded, the folks at Verizon are today letting it be known that four more Android phones will soon be approved for global use.

Motorola DROID 4 Review

Finally the one-two-three punches of Verizon's 4G LTE, a dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video has come to the DROID line of QWERTY keyboard-having Android devices. Those of you who are die-hard fans of the DROID line know that Verizon and Motorola have dipped in a few devices that strayed from the original power combo complete with QWERTY and may have had hard luck picking up the DROID 3 which, despite its having a decent processor and a fair but not too fantastic camera on the back, had no LTE and was released when Motorola's user interface change-over was at a bit of a strange point. Now the QWERTY DROID line is back and stronger than ever, and if you're not a person who minds the massiveness of the chassis here, you're in for a treat.

Motorola Droid 4 Hands-on

The folks at Motorola have finally come clean with the next in line DROID device for Verizon's 4G LTE network, this a qwerty keyboard slider running Motorola's own user interface over Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and having the same capabilities, to a point, that the RAZR has: this is the Droid 4.
