It has been just under 6 months since Motorola released the Droid 3, and it has become clear that the fourth device in the Droid series is on its way. Of course, yesterday, December 22nd, was the rumored date of release. However, the day has come and gone without any definitive word from Verizon or Motorola.

Despite the lack of info from big red, a piece of informations, shown above, has escaped from Verizon’s headquarters. It is pretty clear that the Droid 4 will be landing in Verizon on or around February 2nd, 2012. This quick change of release dates should not come as a shock after the agony Verizon put Galaxy Nexus fans through. However, at least there is a date set for the release.

As of now, the rumored specs suggest that the Droid 4 will carry a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch qHD display, a full QWERTY keyboard, LTE connectivity, 8 MP rear shooter, 1080P video capture, possibly an HD front facing camera, and almost definitely Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, Android 4.0 may be the reason Verizon is holding back the Droid 4. This way, Droid 4 buyers would be able to get the newest version of Android straight out of the box.

Are you looking forward to the slimmest full QWERTY LTE phone? Let us know in the comments below.
