Motorola Droid 4 is a Droid Razr with a keyboard

Droid fans, the Droid 4 is coming in a few days and it's everything the Droid 3 should have been, but wasn't.

It's barely been five months since the Droid 3 was released and the Droid 4 is already preparing for its big debut. Whereas the Droid 3 was greeted with disappointment by a lot of consumers (myself included), the Droid 4 looks to be a device with cut corners (that seems to be Motorola's new style) and a sweet LED edge-lit QWERTY keyboard.

The changes run deeper than the skin, though. The Droid 4 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and runs on Verizon's ultra fast 4G LTE network. Inside is 1GB of RAM (up from 512MB), a Gorilla Glass qHD (960x540) resolution screen, HD front-facing camera for video calls, a larger 1785mAh battery (up from 1540mAh), and 8-megapixel rear cam with image stabilization.

Like the Droid Razr, the Droid 4 is also splash-proof, so you can spill your morning coffee all over it and it won't fizzle around in agony. The Droid 4 doesn't have the Kevlar body that the Droid Razr has, but its rear looks nice and grippy (you now get a little camera hump).

Overall, the Droid 4 looks like a great boost for the Droid faithful. The Droid smartphones have always been known to be durable little devices, and there's no reason to believe the Droid 4 won't be of the same high quality.
