It's official: The Motorola Droid 4, that slender beast of a smartphone, is headed to Verizon's speedy 4G LTE network on Feb. 10.
As you might already know, the gadget is skinny — it's less than half-an-inch thick — and offers a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, a five-row QWERTY keyboard, a 4-inch qHD display (made of scratch- and scrape-resistant glass), an 8-megapixel back-facing camera, and a front-facing camera for video chats.
The Droid 4 will support EG LTE, meaning that you could enjoy (theoretical) speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps for downloads and 2 to 5 Mbps for uploads. It will also be possible for the Droid 4 to serve as a hotspot for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
The Droid 4 will arrive in Verizon Wireless stores and be available on Verizon's website Feb. 10. It will set you back $200 — assuming you're willing to sign a new two-year service agreement.
