Motorola DROID 4 dual-core LTE QWERTY slider revealed semi-officially

When it comes to the DROID line as carried by Verizon, there's no knowing which manufacturer is going to get to have their hardware graced with the name, but usually it's Motorola - and here in the DROID 4, the trend continues.

Fitted with a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard complete with Android menu shortcuts and coming in as the second Samsung handset to work on Verizon's 4G LTE network, the Samsung Stratosphere isn't here to win any benchmark wars with its single-core 1GHz processor and relatively thick chassis, but it IS the only 4G LTE device on the market with a full QWERTY keyboard, and the 4-inch 800 × 480 Super AMOLED display doesn't hurt none either. Will the Stratosphere access a market just waiting to be tapped? We shall see!
