Droid 4, Other Promotions Launching on Verizon Friday

By - Source: Verizon PR, BGR | B 9 comments

In addition to unleashing the Motorola Droid 4, Verizon will reportedly launch a few promotions this Friday including double-data plans, buy-one-get-one-free Razr phones and more.

Motorola's Droid 4 smartphone is officially landing on Verizon's 4G LTE network on Friday, February 10, available for purchase both online and through the company's brick-and-mortar stores. As reported earlier, the phone will cost a solid $199.99 USD with a new two-year contract, and will be accompanied by a separate Laptop 500 accessory costing even more than the phone itself: $299.97 USD.

"Droid 4 is designed to help customers get more done," Verizon said on Tuesday. "Business professionals can impress their audience by presenting to a conference room full of potential customers in a snap by plugging the Droid 4 into an HDTV and presenting directly from the phone.  Professionals can also combine the Droid 4 with the Lapdock 500 and its 14-inch display to create a full-featured mobile office.  They can download documents, make edits using Lapdock’s full keyboard and email the updated documents to colleagues or customers.  The Lapdock even features a built-in webcam so customers can attend virtual meetings and manage their business face-to-face."

The Droid 4 will come packed with Android 2.3.5 "Gingerbread" right out of the box, but will be upgraded to Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" as soon as Verizon gives it the green light for bloatware. As previously reported, the phone will feature a dual-core 1.2 GHz SoC, a 4.0-inch qHD display with scratch and scrape resistance glass, an 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video capture, a front-facing camera for video chatting, 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot supporting up to eight additional Wi-Fi devices, a slide-out keyboard with edge-lit keys and more.

Customers that purchase a Droid 4 will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan beginning at $39.99 monthly access and a smartphone data package starting at $30 monthly access for 2 GB of data.

In related news, Verizon will reportedly launch a number of promotions on the same day. Although Verizon hasn't announced anything official just yet, the company will supposedly offer all Motorola Razr smartphones -- including the just-released Razr Maxx and the purple and while models-- as a buy one get one free deal.

On Friday Verizon will also reportedly bring back the double data promotion. Customers who purchase a 4G LTE smartphone and lock on a new two-year ball-and-chain (contract) can get 4 GB of data for just $30 a month. Two other promotions are set for Friday as well: get a $30 Verizon gift card for trading in your old phone, and $100 off any 4G LTE tablet with the purchase of any phone and a two-year contract.

Sounds like Friday will be a busy day at the Big Red House of Verizon.

    yeah, because the other phone companies are so much better... get real people. If you want it bad enough you'll pay. If you don't then you won't. Unless you fall to peer pressure.
