Motorola introduces the Droid 4 smartphone



The Motorola Droid 4 was released this month being one of the few smartphones that still sport a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard for those who prefer having the feel of hardware buttons over virtual ones. Its keyboard has LED edge-lit keys for use in the dark, and its display is shielded against scrapes, scratches, and water attacks.  The device runs on the Android Gingerbread OS and packs a lot of power with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It also features an 8-megapixel primary auto-focus rear-facing camera with LED flash, capable of recording 1080p at 30fps, which is a lot better than what most smartphones are capable of in today’s market. It also has an HDMI output so you can play videos on an external device.

The 127 x 67.3 x 12.7mm body weighs in at 178.9g and comes with a TFT capacitive 4-inch touch screen display. What may separate this smartphone from the rest though, is its connectivity. The unit is capable of Wi-Fi, LTE , HSDPA, HSUPA, GPRS, and EDGE connections, some of which are capable of delivering lightning fast download speeds and internet connections. The Droid 4 comes with 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 32GB of additional space, while its battery life is about 204 hours for stand-by 12.5 hours for talk-time.

The Droid 4 is expected to be available in the Philippines with a price tag of around Php 28,000 – 32,000.
