Verizon's DROID 4 by Motorola will land on February 10, the carrier has confirmed, with the QWERTY-slider priced at $199.99 with a new, two year agreement. Announced at CES last month, the DROID 4 has a 4-inch display and a pull-out five row keyboard for easier text entry; inside there's a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity.

On the back there's an 8-megapixel camera with Full HD video recording, while a 1.3-megapixel camera is up front for video calls. The 4G connection can be shared out with up to eight WiFi-tethered devices, and there's WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth along with GPS.

Motorola is also pushing the Lapdock 500, complete with its full-sized keyboard and 14-inch display, for those willing to spend another $299.97 turning their smartphone into a notebook. More details in our full hands-on.
