Default Coming from a D4

Should I get the M? I have an upgrade in december, and I really love the form factor. My main concern is, I want a phone that will be supported for at least a full year. I like my 4, but I feel like its an afterthought to Motorola as far as design and in software support. I feel like you need to have a highly successful phone (as opposed to the niche market phone the D4 is) to receive support for a respectable amount of time.

The honest truth is I will most likely want a new phone by the end of 2013 as well (I have a real hard time sticking with a phone for a full contract), but is the M a good phone that will get continuous love for 2013? Does the phone seem like it will be able to handle anything 2013 might throw at it (as far as software)?

I just got my M, after having 5 different work Blackberries. I was tempted by the Samsung S3 and the RAZR Maxx, but went with the M due to it's size. So far, I really like it. I'd go for it.

My concern is that it will just fall off the map in a few months. I mean, the original Droid RAZR still turns heads and attracts attention. And until the HD came out, it was Motorola's baby, so it got updates first and so on. What I DON'T like about the HD is the size and the full kevlar back. I know the M has it too, but it's at least minimized to an inset, so for those of you wondering why I don't just get a RAZR HD, that is why. Essentially I want the support that the original Droid RAZR (and possibly the RAZR HD) will get with the compact form (that I feel is just as attractive as other high end phones) that the M offers.

The big question is will this phone be able to have the longevity to stay in the mainstream for a decent amount of time, or will it just be another "niche" phone that is cool for a few months and then disappears.

I keep thinking of this phone as a Motorola version of an HTC One S. Not the flagship X, but even today, the S is still a sweet phone to own, and it is still attractive and supported by HTC. That is the type of longevity I want. Does the M that phone?
