For a limited time, the Motorola DROID 3 is sliced to $49 with a new line
The Motorola DROID 3 might just have become the biggest bargain at Verizon. After cutting the price of the handset to $99, the carrier just gave the solidly built handset another $50 haircut with a new line. The deal runs until February 5th. With a dual-core 1GHz processor driving the phone, and the 4 inch qHD display, the DROID 3 still has some pretty delectable specs. The slide out QWERTY keyboard is still one of the best available. Of course, some of the specs are not up to more recent high-end models, such as the 512MB of RAM. Still, the device has an 8MP camera that delivers 1080p video, and a VGA front-facing camera.

The Motorola DROID 3 originally launched this past July at a price of $199.99. Unfortunately for its owners, it is not an LTE model and if you believe Verizon, will be one of its last flagship devices to not offer 4G connectivity. Verizon is looking to get rid of the model to make room for the recently announced Motorola DROID 4, which is LTE enabled.

Talk about bargains when you wait around. 512RAM might be hard to swallow but considering it captures 1080p video and comes with dual cameras, all for $50 on contract, lol. LTE can wait for all I care as it's not perfect with battery life just yet and VoLTE isn't going to be wide spread until 2013, you can get a good year and a half out of this phone easily and if it breaks the replacement would be the D4 assuming they have zero D3 left for replacements....VZW always a piece of silver lining somewhere in that cloud of bureaucrats and businessmen.

normally i would do a warranty replacement but it would be at least a month before i could do that because they've got to get warranty replacement stock in for the Droid 4 after it launches and that takes at least 2 weeks. i figured trading this Bionic and the smorgus board of accessories i've acquired would be easier.

the shortage of RAM wasn't a real big deal. i did several stress tests with my Droid 3 and my dad's Bionic side by side on the same Wi-Fi Network and they performed pretty similarly. i actually like the Droid 3 more than the Bionic but i traded my 3 and this iPod Nano i got for free but didn't want for a Bionic with a LOT of accessories because i wanted a package that was more compelling to trade for one of the newer heavyweights so if you guys are interested buy or trade for my stuff. (: i'll even lower the price to $350 for my Phone Arena pals. just comment on the listing that KingKurogiii sent you.
