Not more than seven months after the Droid 3 was released, Verizon has announced the latest in what appears to be the longest lineage of a smarpthone brand ever. The Droid 4, which appeared on our radar in September, is the first LTE-capable original Droid (of the hardware keyboard variety). In a lot of ways, the Droid 4 reminds us of the Droid RAZR with its slender design and somewhat rounded edges. It packs a 4.0″ qHD 960×540 display powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage with microSD expansion, an 8MP shooter on the back capable of recording 1080p video, all running on Android 2.3.5 with a promised upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. No pricing or availability has been announced.
