Verizon Makes The Motorola Droid 4 Official

It’s been but 5 months since the Droid 3 hit the shelves — but hey, who doesn’t like a bit of rapid obsolescence in the morning? Meet the just announced Droid 4 for Verizon; it’s got all of the staples people know and love from the Droid line (the slide-out keyboard, the 4 inch display) with one big perk over its predecessors: 4G LTE support.

Here’s everything you need to know:

  • Dual-core 1.2Ghz processor (vs. 1ghz in the Droid 3)
  • 1GB of RAM (vs. 512mb)
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • While it’ll run Android 2.3.5 at launch, Verizon promises that it’ll be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 16GB onboard memoru
  • A “Water-repellant” Nano coating (which I’m pretty sure means it’s covered in tiny robots.)
  • Support for 4G/LTE (which should pull about 5-12 megabits per second down, and 2-5 megabits per second up)

We’re not even to the first official day of CES, and we’re already getting buried under a mountain of announcements. At this rate, we’ll probably see a Droid 5 announced by the end of the week.
