The sequels keep on coming: Verizon releases the DROID 4 smartphone, aimed at the QWERTY keyboard lovers
Apparently, the original DROID is so good, it deserves a third sequel.
The DROID 4 by Motorola will be available starting Feb. 10 in Verizon Wireless Stores and online at www.verizonwireless.com.
Introduced at this year’s Consumer Electronic Show (CES), the DROID 4 is the thinnest and most powerful 4G QWERTY smartphone measuring at less than half an inch.
DROID 4 features a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, plus a five-row QWERTY keyboard for those who don’t like typing on a touchscreen.
It has edge-lit keys for fast, precise typing, even in the dark. It is powered by Verizon’s 4G network.
