Verizon Wireless and Motorola recently announced the much-awaited Motorola Droid 4 smartphone at the CES 2012 in Las Vegas. This handset might disappoint some Android fans, since the device runs on the old Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) Operating System, instead of the new Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS.
