Motorola DROID 3 user manual shows up early
A quick look through it shows that it will be running Gingerbread with the updated MotoBLUR layered on top. You can also clearly see the layout of the device, with the new 5-row keyboard, and the back where the battery, SIM, and microSD memory card can be installed - though it does say "sold separately".
The manual also shows that the DROID 3 will come with the SWYPE on-screen keyboard and have better Social Networking integration. The 8MP camera on the back can also record 1080p videos (called HD+ in the manual) which is a first for a Verizon smartphone.
Have a look for yourself by using the download link, and let us know if you plan to buy the Motorola DROID 3.

in terms of the original specs for bionic... the bionic will be better.

But the Bionic does not have global capabilities. The 3 does.

the original specs for the Bionic fall under those of the Droid 3, the NEW Bionic's specs will probably be generally the same.

the Droid 3's specs will probably be on par with the Bionic, it depends on what's important to you, LTE and a bigger screen backing the Bionic or the Keyboard equipped Droid 3 with Global capabilities and likely much better battery life.

Bionic will also be LTE. If LTE is important to you, then the Bionic may be the better choice.

I have a question about the qwerty vs virtual keyboard. Which is better and why? Or is it just a preference? I personally think it's well suited for many because it's been implemented in the past two models, and it's probably going to sell a lot this month because of the qwerty, I think. However, this is actually going to be my first smartphone as my contract ends soon. So, what do you guys think?

using the virtual qwerty on a capacitive touch screen can be a little bit of a nuisance sometimes. it's better with increases in screen size and it may not even be a problem if you get a phone 4.0"+ but IMO i think the keyboard is really the one to use if you're a heavy texter like i am because it's all the user.
