The Droid 4 has landed. The fourth incarnation of the most important Android series is now on sale. Verizon is hawking the phone for $199 with a two-year contact, but the phone is also available through Amazon where it’s only $99 on-contract. Either way it’s a solid buy considering the LTE capability and quality hardware.

The Droid 4 shares much of the RAZR’s styling: cropped corners, silver trim, and similar soft buttons. It also packs much of the same internals with a LTE radio, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 8MP camera, and the same, 12.5 hour battery. Plus the Droid 4 has a slide-out QWERTY keypad — something that is a must-have for some buyers.

We’ll have a full review of the phone in the coming days. So far we like what we see. The QWERTY keypad is tops.
