It has been just 5 months since the launch of the Motorola Droid 3, and today at day 0 on CES, Motorola has announced its 4G LTE-enabled replacement, the Motorola Droid 4. The Motorola Droid 4 appears to marry the industrial design and profile of the Motorola Droid RAZR to a five-row QWERTY keyboard and likewise includes the same 1.2 GHz OMAP4430 SoC.

Coinciding with the announcement is the rumored RAZR MAXX. The RAZR MAXX is essentially a thicker RAZR which includes a bigger battery (no word on exact size yet) and 32 GB of NAND onboard. The addition of a bigger battery brings thickness up to 8.99 mm from the 7.1 mm of the original RAZR. Both devices will ship initially with Android 2.3.5 and be updated later to Android 4.0.

    The Maxx might be a very intersting phone if they are using a 3000-3500mAh battery.

    C'mon! These people are too busy writing about how technology makes our lives easier to have time to look up every single word in a dictionary!

    They typed it up in Word and didn't press F7 once they were done. Its not that hard to do.

    Any info on Motorola's Bootloader situation?

    IIRC they promised unlocking but nothing yet on their previous locked phones... Unless you managed to get your hands on a developer unit :/

    (Last time I checked properly was with the Atrix launch, so forgive me if I'm hopelessly misinformed)
