The Droid 4 by Motorola features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch qHD screen, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, 8-megapixel camera, and Verizon's practically standard CDMA/LTE radio combo. Packing in all those specs and a full five-row physical keyboard make the Droid 4 a full half-inch thick, about the same as the Droid 3.

Description

Motorola's newly announced Droid RAZR Maxx features a chassis similar to the original Droid RAZR but now has a slightly thicker body at 8.99mm. Aside from thickness, there is one more difference: it now houses an extended battery said to provide 21 hours of talk time. When it launches, the Droid RAZR Maxx will come with 16GB of built-in memory, expandable via microSD with a 16GB card included.

The iPhone 4S features the same design as the iPhone 4 and is the first device to support Apple’s new Siri “intelligent assistant” and dictation system. The 4S supports both CDMA and GSM, allowing global roaming. It has an updated camera with a 8-megapixel sensor that offers improved low-light performance and 1080p video recording.

The LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus is exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the United States. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB of on-board storage, 1GB of RAM, LTE 4G connectivity, and Near Field Communications technology.

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 is RIM's flagship phone featuring a physical keyboard, touchscreen, slim design, and compatibility with both CDMA and GSM networks. Its operating system is BlackBerry 7 OS powered by a 1.2GHz processor with 768MB of RAM. Additionally, the NFC based BlackBerry Tag technology will be available within the BlackBerry 7 OS update, allowing users to touch theirs phones together to share contacts, documents, and URLs, or become BBM contacts.

Nokia's Lumia 900 represents their first big push back into the US smartphone market. The device runs Windows Phone 7.5 and includes a 1.4GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, a Carl Zeiss rear camera, and a 4.3-inch AMOLED display — an improvement over the Lumia 800 screen.
