It looks like it's set to be a big weekend for Verizon: not only is it expected to launch the Droid 4, but it's also gearing up for a few major offers. CNET and BGR are both reporting that the earlier rumors of a Droid 4 launch coming this weekend are true, with both sources pegging the handset to launch on Friday for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The phone's the long-awaited successor to the Droid 3, and while it keeps the signature sliding keyboard, it also finally brings LTE support to the line. Beside this, it's also been granted a slight bump in processing speed, and double the RAM over its predecessor. For all of the differences between the two, check out our comparison tool.

Alongside the Droid 4, the same reports (as well as the LA Times) suggest that Big Red's got a few offers up its sleeve. First, the Droid RAZR range will be offered on a buy-one-get-one-free basis, making it easier for you to treat yourself as you shop for Valentine's gifts. The offer includes all colors of the original Droid RAZR, along with the RAZR Maxx which launched last month. Secondly, the carrier's brought back its double data promotion for LTE users, allowing you to get a 4GB data plan for $30 per month. And finally, if you've been looking into grabbing a tablet from Verizon, the reports also suggest that any LTE-capable tablet will be discounted by $100 when you buy any phone at the same time.
