For some reason, we’ve been seeing an awful lot of Verizon-related news today, and that trend continues with the latest chapter in the Motorola Droid 4 story. After sprinting out of the gate, past the FCC, and into Verizon’s computers in what may be record time, the Droid 4 is now poised for its release later this month, bringing a hardware QWERTY option to Verizon 4G LTE. Last we checked, multiple leaks were naming December 22 as the phone’s release date. Considering this is Verizon we’re talking about, not to mention an LTE model, we’re well aware of the chance for the phone seeing some last-minute delays. Is the Droid 4 still on-track for its rumored release date this week?
The latest leak to arrive says: yes. Even just days away from December 22, the date continues to be referenced in documents discussing the Droid 4′s release. If the Galaxy Nexus taught us anything, it’s that even in the midst of widespread leaks, Verizon likes to keep its cards close to its chest, and has the prerogative to switch some up at the last moment. That could very well end up being the case here, but as of this evening, all signs continue to point to Thursday, December 22.
