If it’s a QWERTY keyboard and 4G connectivity you’re after, this may well be the Droid you’re looking for. Motorola’s Droid 4 is coming to the Verizon network in the US, as revealed today at CES 2012.

As well as the keyboard and superfast web-connectivity, the smartphone is also packing a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8MP camera and the ability to record 1080p video.

Shipping with Android 2.3.5 (with the promise of Ice Cream Sandwich later down the line), the phone boasts a 4-inch qHD screen, with 16GB of built in storage. The MotoCast app (that featured in the Razr) which allows for streaming of photos, videos and music across devices, will also be pre-loaded.

Will the Droid 4 make it to the UK? It’s hard to say. The original Droid, or Milestone as it was called over here, was favourably received, but the Droid3/Milestone 3 never hit our shores.

With the UK still lacking 4G connectivity in all but a few trial regions, it’s unlikely we’ll see this one either.
