Motorola’s DROID 4 has gone on sale at Verizon, priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement, the company’s latest Android QWERTY slider. Announced at CES last month, the DROID 4 has a 4-inch qHD touchscreen along with its edge-illuminated five row keyboard, while inside lurks 4G LTE connectivity.
There’s also an 8-megapixel main camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a front-facing camera for video calls, and WiFi hotspot support for tethering other devices. Motorola has splashed plenty of enterprise-level software at the DROID 4, too, with government-grade encryption (FIPS 140-2) and the Citrix Receiver app preloaded.
However, even if you’re planning on using the DROID 4 for play rather than work, the 1.2GHz dual-core processor should be easily sufficient. OS is Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, but an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade is in the pipeline.
