iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Motorola To Launch DROID4 handset

Pictures of what looks like the successor to the Motorola Milestone have emerged online complete with a number of close up shots; these were leaked to Droid-life by an anonymous poster who obviously had the time to take some great pictures.

According to the website, the phone will have a 4-inch screen which we can assume will be a Super AMOLED advanced model with a 960x540 pixel resolution just like the Razr.

There's also a five row illuminated slide out QWERTY keyboard with a classic four-arrow pad, the Razr styling, 4G LTE connectivity (it will be launching on Verizon Wireless), a non removable battery, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, 1080p video recording (possibly eight megapixel camera), HDMI out, a front-facing camera, MotoACTV syncing and most probably, a dual core TI OMAP4430 clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM and possibly Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB onboard storage and a microSD card slot.

So here we have what is essentially a Motorola Razr coupled with a keyboard which will push the Milestone out of Motorola's portfolio. The Motorola Milestone which comes with a 3.7-inch screen can be had for around £25 per month on an 18 month contract.
