Hi all,

do you think it is worth waiting for the release of the Milestone 4 / Droid 4 (assuming such a phone will be released), or would you get the Droid 3 now because there's been no news on a potential Droid 4?

I'd like to see a 4.3'' screen with physical keyboard and ice cream sandwich, but not if it involves waiting over a year...
 
Check the specs of the D4 and decide for yourself ;)

My biggest peeve about it is the non-removable battery. I prefer to be able to do a battery pull if necessary.

I wonder if it will ever be released in Europe. Probably not, since the Droid 3 / Milestone 3 never was. I could buy an unlocked version from negri electronics, but it would be really expensive and not being able to change the battery myself would be a big limitation. Also, no ice cream sandwich?

Motorola should slow down with the releases... Isn't it counter-productive to issue so many new products so close to each other? I mean, I guess there will be quite a few people put off from buying the latest gadget because they'd rather wait for the next model directly.

Mmm, maybe it's time I switched to the thinner Samsung Galasy S2...

you need hardware, you go to S2; you need keyboard, you go to droid. :p

but yeah motorola is kinda freaking me out with all those releases... I don't even know how many Droids are out there.
