One of the things not mentioned in this post (and what I've been looking for for years in a full keyboard Android phone) is that it's splashwaterproof.
This phone is a must have for me and I hope there won't be a similar one is released once this one is available or I'll have a dilema.
With the gorilla glass, this thing is a nice semi-rugged phone on paper, in reality, they can also withstand a few rough drops as well so I dare say it's a rugged phone.
Now I just hope the battery life won't dissapoint, if I need more capacity and get a thick battery, it will mess with the waterproofness.
Does anyone have a price indication yet?
Please Motorola, make it other colors (white, sylver, gold) aand quickly available in europe too!
Does anyone know if this, like all the previous Droid models has a built in FM receiver, but simply does not include the software to use it? That was apparently the case with all the previous ones, so would anyone please be able to confirm this? Thanks.
Wish it was Dual SIM for people who have 2 SIMs at minimum (specially the expat community)
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2012I don't believe this device is global, just CDMA and LTE and no GSM. Neither Droiddoes.com or... moreIt's just the same as with the Droid 3. Sold in the US on Verizon, but if you unlocked it you could use it with any gsm carrier here in Europe, asia etc. Becuase it's had gsm quad band, just like this one.
Spoke to someone at 3 in the UK and he said they were trying to secure the Milestone 4 on their network, I REALLY hope it wasn't a fob off :( PLEASE let this phone come to the UK!

Marco, 12 Jan 2012yes, the battery is removable.Just curious, did you ask Moto or seen the real thing regarding the removable battery? Please elaborate, thanks.
Want a droid , 11 Jan 2012Hi all, Is the battery removable?yes, the battery is removable.

I'm looking to upgrade from my HTC desire z.
Please Motorola make this thing awesome AND work in Europe.
I am waiting for a version with replaceable battery....and agree with the other comment I'm not sure if this phone supports GSM...
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2012Why are all of their phones black? White is not cooler? Or blue? Green? :)? They do have purple, white, blue and silver colored phones. That doesn't necessarily mean that they launch it as a new model, showing as a new phone here at gsm arena - like Sammy does. It only shows as a new model if there's some difference in specs and/or market segment.
