Motorola Droid 4 (Verizon)

Phones
Hi. I'm Brian Bennett for CNET. com and today we're getting a first look at the Motorola Droid 4. Available for $199.99 on Verizon. Now, this phone has been eagerly anticipated by die-hard keyboard fans for quite a while now. That's because it essentially is what the Motorola Droid 3 should have been. If you remember the Droid Broad Dual Core processing to the party but sadly lacked access to Verizon's 4G LTE data network. The new Droid 4 shores this up by boasting a faster 1.2 gigahertz dual core CPU, an excellent 5-row Qwerty keyboard and finally 4G LTE. Let's take a closer look at the phone So you open the Droid 4's keyboard like this. Just slide it open and here we have the Qwerty Keypad here which has 5 rows which is really great and it also has a dedicated number row right on the top here and the LED back-lit lights here surround each key as well the keys themselves are really great. So here we see that Droid 4's 4-inch LCD qHD screen. Unfortunately, it's not quite as high-contrast as an AMOLED screen but it's still pretty high-res. So on front is a 1.2 megapixel camera that is capable of doing 720P video and on the back is an 8-megapixel camera that is capable of doing 1080P video and there's also an LED flash here as well . One thing that seems really inconvenient to me is that you have to use a special key to unlock the back battery plate. So over here, we have an HDMI port, as well as a micro USB port and around the phone, coating the whole thing making it water resistant is a Nano water-resistant coating. Also, what's cool about the phone is that it supports optional docks that will turn it into a laptop, connected to home theater systems and also let's you use it like a desktop computer. For more, be sure to check out our full review. I'm Brian Bennett at CNET.com and this has been a first look at the Motorola Droid 4 for Verizon
