Motorola DROID 4 Verizon

When Verizon introduced the Motorola DROID 4 back at CES, the only availability information that the carrier gave up was that the 4G LTE slider would be arriving sometime in the coming weeks. Fast-forward a few weeks later and we're still without any official DROID 4 launch or pricing details. If a new rumor is to be believed, though, the device may not be much farther out. According to sources speaking to Droid-Life, the latest QWERTY-packin' member of the DROID family is currently expected to arrive on February 9th. Pricing is said to be set at $199.99 with a two-year contract, which lines up with a recently-leaked Verizon minimum advertised price list.

So will the DROID 4 indeed land next week? It's certainly possible. Previously we heard that a February 2nd launch may be in the cards, and although there's a chance that that could still be the case, a release tomorrow is seemingly becoming less likely as the today goes on. Of course, whenever the DROID 4 finally does decide to show its face in Verizon stores, you can bet that we'll let you know. Any of you thinking about picking up the DROID 4 when it arrives?

Thanks for your participation! :)

Cleveland B Stamps No way, we hackers/ modders need to be able to do a "battery pull" in case of a software emergency
Ani Ascua A Razr with qwerty
Tim Davis I hope not. What happens when the battery wears out and won't hold a charge in a couple years?
Cleveland B Stamps No way!!! A non removable battery means (like *phone)your phone even when u turn it off its nevet really off and can be listened to by government and any intelligence agency!
Jeff Koenig Mophie would love that!
Steve Griffith thats why i hate iphones you cant remove the battery
Byktor Urvaes If the battery is big enough i dont see the problem..
AC Edwards If they make the Maxx in a GSM version, I'd seriously consider picking one up. Something awesome about not having to keep glancing at your battery life or turning off the various radios. Yeah, you can just swap the battery, but I wouldn't be opposed to 9 mm phones with 3,000+ mah batteries going forward.
Areefeen Samah ?????????
Chris Turner And hey, if you can't remove the battery, the FBI can listen in at any time: http://www.zdnet.com/news/fbi-taps-cell-phone-mic-as-eavesdropping-tool/150467
Afshin Perjia Mahini wp7 > android
Shawn Sedha It makes the designer thinner.
Viktor B Thumperofseals I like having a removable battery, if i dont have a charger handy i can pop in my old evo shift batter in and good to go
Eric Rogers If it means it would last two or more days I'm ok with that. My iPhone 4s lasts just short of two days with moderate to heavy use.
Sylbert Joseph Honestly, I only carry batteries because android phones eat through battery like termites to wood. If the battery life is good enough to sustain a days worth of energy for a power user, then I'm all for it
Carlos Nava If it comes with a 4000 mAH battery ... yes
Zach Brito I hope not! ! !
Richard Ameen Just because motorola is making them doesnt mean its going to be tr trend...
Ben Conover I hope not. Then you can't pull the battery if something goes wrong.
Daniel Clem NOOO I don't feel like having a device that has a "life span" 100% controlled my Manufacturers. Especially given the strong arming Carriers do over the specs of the devices.
Syed Mujtaba I dislike phones with non removable batteries, I hope they don't start doing that to all phones.
Eugene Yap 2000 mah battery least
Eugene Yap I will buy but make sure last least for 3 years
Norman Chan not a fan of flip phones.
Mark Belkowski i dunno but im very close to getting the droid razr maxxx over the gnexus. overall the battery life on any android device is garbage.
Ariel Danielle I hope not.
Flako Ramirez Uuummmm unless they make ur phone last the whole week without a charge i doubt it...how bout extended batteries?
Calvin Tran If the battery last me a good two days with heavy usage then why not but I doubt it
Bill White They better make them last longer. I swap batteries at about 4pm each day.
Hansel Starley Yeah pretty much
Francisco Saucedo Hopefully not
Issam El Kouartey Yes. I think so.
Brandon Johnson If android goes that right the fanboys will have a conniption. That would be three things they can't brag about anymore.
Kevin Scott Verizon can keep that whack shit, The first 3 were garbage! Who uses a keyboard anymore!
Spencer Bartholomew non-Removable battery and less psychical buttons. Smelling like an iPhone. Android needs to stop forcing change. I love the freedom Android offers.
Dylan Hillard o,O lol, how do they make such lastable, compact batteries xD
Jared JD Scott say ur phone froze how u gona get te battery out
Furqan Taher i certainly think so. Because i find it is much easier to carry a small 5500 mAh battery back than a spare battery everywhere. The thought of carrying a spare battery in my wallet or pocket is just not something that excites me. To top it off, the batter will only be another 1780 (if the razrs was removable) vs 5500 on the portable one which is the size of about a lecture lazer pointer/slide clicker.
Carlos Nava 4000 Mil yes
Gerard Hyacinthe If they come with 2000 mAh or better then cool. But my year old Mytouch 4G only lasts 3-3 1/2 hours before running out. That's some ol' bullshit right there!
Carlos Nava GALAXY S3 OFFICIAL! 5.0 inch 1080p super amoled Plus HD 12 Megapixel Camera with 1080p video/5 Mega pixel HD front cam 2.0 Gigahertz Dual core Exynos 2 Gigs of ram,4G LTE,Android 2.5, 3000 Mil Battery,FaceLock/Eyelock ,Android T.V (2012)
Scott Rager I wont buy a built in battery phone, no way in hell
Michael Gonzalez I hope not... having an extra battery lets me play on the phone all day
Darryl Cobb I hope not.
Simon Yu I wouldn't mind non-removable batteries on one-condition, they gotta last you. They better last at least as long as it does on the RAZR.
Nain El Fuego Romero Nope, too many people depend on extended batteries or carrying more than one.
Stephen Wagner I sure hope not.
