Motorola Droid 4 – The RAZR with a QWERTY

This is a guest post by Simon about Motorola Droid 4. After a bit of a slump when the first iPhone was launched, Motorola managed to pull itself back from the brink by releasing the Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in some markets). This highly popular Android device came with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and has been one of the most popular phone brands in recent years.

Motorola has since produced 3 Droid phones, although only 2 of these made an appearance outside of the US. Now the company is set to launch its fourth Droid, which builds on earlier versions while also sharing many design characteristics with the new RAZR.

Like the RAZR, the Droid 4 is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz chip with 1GB RAM, and comes with full LTE support. The screen is a little smaller than the RAZR's, measuring just 4 inches instead of 4.3, but the phone does come with a physical QWERTY keyboard, a major factor in the popularity and success of earlier Droid phones.

The Droid 4 also sees an improved 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video, much like the RAZR. With the Motorola RAZR being one of the most impressive phones launched in recent months, the addition of what is essentially a QWERTY model is likely to help bolster Motorola's smartphone sales leading up the Christmas.

The Droid 4 will most likely feature a qHD Super AMOLED screen like the RAZR, although no technical details about the screen have been confirmed just yet. It does seem that the Droid will share the RAZR's fate of coming with Gingerbread rather than the new Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android.

It is not clear just yet whether the Motorola Droid 4 will be released outside of the United States, at it seems as though it is just going to get released on the US carrier Verizon. People in Europe who have been eyeing up the Droid 4 may just have to make do with a QWERTY-less Motorola RAZR contract instead.

While the Droid and Droid 2 were released in Europe as the Milestone and Milestone 2, the Droid 3 never made an appearance outside of the US. This was mainly due to lower sales figures outside of the US, which also may have been a direct result of the phone's name. 'Droid' is a registered trademark owned by Lucasfilm (Star Wars), and has been licensed out to Verizon to use in the US. As no other companies have licensed this name elsewhere, Motorola have had to resort to the less appealing brand name for the phone.

Because of this it seems unlikely that the Droid 4 will be making an appearance in Europe. This is a great shame considering that Europe will still benefit from the new RAZR, and there are many prospective phone owners in Europe who would love a QWERTY Android, which seem to be increasingly rare these days.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
