Motorola Droid 4 gets last minute delay

Fresh leaks have hinted that the Droid 4 may arrive well beyond its original date. Backed earlier by unofficial tips, a document handed to Droid-Life has the 4G Android slider moving from its originally projected launch today, Thursday, to February 2. No reason was given for the apparently last-minute delay.

Most likely, Verizon, Motorola, or both had decided that the December 22 launch would be too late to get holiday sales and would be too close to the delayed release of the Galaxy Nexus last week. Moving to early February would also give the Droid 4 enough of a buffer between a flood of phones at CES in mid-January and Mobile World Congress in late February.

The smartphone is considered a keyboarded version of the Droid RAZR and should get a smaller four-inch (though still 540x960) display and a thicker body in return for the keyboard and world phone support with GSM and HSPA 3G. It would still claim the dual-core 1.2GHz TI chip, LTE-based 4G, a front HD-capable camera, and a rear eight-megapixel camera.
