The DROID 4 was rumored to be in stores right around the same time that the white DROID RAZR and the DROID Xyboard tablets were, but that obviously never happened. We all know that the first 4G LTE slider from Motorola exists but we still have no idea when we’ll be seeing it.
More evidence may suggest Verizon’s marketing campaign was already up and ready to go for a December launch. Aside from past leaks giving us glimpses of the device’s presence on the DROID Does site, we now apparently have audio clips that will be (or were going to be) used to present the device’s specs and features in a DROID-like way.
There are a number of reasons why Verizon could have delayed this device beyond its expected December launch. Software or hardware issues are always expected culprits, though with them having prepared so heavily for the launch already we can’t say we believe that to be the case. Perhaps the December lineup was just far too crowded.
You have four different configurations of the Xyboard tablets, a new white edition of the DROID RAZR and the long-awaited Galaxy Nexus that seems to be doing well. I’d say that’s enough to have alongside other recent devices such as the HTC Rezound.
Not to mention, it’s only been half a year since its predecessor – the DROID 3 – has launched. We’d say they could afford a bit of a delay. Of course, the phone hasn’t even officially been announced so the notion of it ever being “delayed” is a bit sillier than the Galaxy Nexus debacle. In any case, we’ll be patiently awaiting the beast’s arrival on Big Red shelves. Find the clips at the source link ahead. [Droid Life]
