The long forgotten Motorola DROID 4 is now being offered free of cost on contract by Verizon. To refresh your memory a bit, the DROID 4 is one of those rare devices with a slide out QWERTY keyboard and a sturdy build quality, so you might want to check out this deal closely if you’re all for physical keyboards. The smartphone is relatively old, no doubt, but it packs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean right now, although it launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. So it has come quite a long way since its launch early last year.
Verizon doesn’t promise future updates, so Android 4.1 might be the last update it will ever see. But it’s more than enough really since it has all the recent changes brought to Android like Google Now, Project Butter etc. It also supports the recently launched suite of Motorola apps, specifically designed for the newly launched trio of Motorola DROID smartphones.
The Motorola DROID 4 features a 4 inch qHD display with a slide out QWERTY keyboard, an 8MP camera, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual core chip, support for Verizon’s LTE networks, a 1,785 mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
