Like the Motorola DROID X2, the DROID 3 will not connect to Verizon's LTE pipelines. The honor of being Big Red's first Motorola manufactured dual-core phone with LTE connectivity might be reserved for the Motorola DROID Bionic.
Getting back to the DROID 3, Motorola has once again tried to improve the slide out physical QWERTY keyboard. This time, the manufacturer has added a 5th row in the form of dedicated number keys. Despite the lack of 4G speeds, the handset is expected to feature a 1.3MP front facing camera for video chat (and self-portraits, of course). On the back, the Motorola DROID 3 will apparently be upgraded to an 8MP shooter. Speculation is that the Motorola DROID 3 will launch next month. And with the phone showing up in Verizon's Device Management Pages, that speculation is looking like a good bet.
