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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
