The Motorola DROID 3
has finally arrived – the latest addition to the DROID series has hit Verizon's website and is now appearing in the new products page. The dedicated product page however still seems inactive as clicking on the product yields an error.
Update: The official dedicated DROID 3 page went live confirming a price of $200 for the handset with a 2-year contract, or $460 off contract.
You can get the handset online now, or wait until July 14th when it hits retail stores.
We already know pretty much everything about the handset though - it comes with a 4” qHD display and claims to have a 30% faster graphics chip than its predecessor, but it also sports a larger 5-row keyboard supporting Swype. Actually, it's the thinnest full QWERTY smartphone, according to Verizon. In addition, the new handset brags with 27% faster multitasking performance over the DROID 2 Global thanks to its 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP chip
. The DROID 3 is a global device supporting 3G networks in 125 countries. It also comes with improved corporate security and with the Citrix companies can push corporate apps to their employees. When it comes to entertainment, the new DROID features HDMI mirroring allowing you to view content from your phone on your HD TV.
Just yesterday, the user manual for the DROID 3 appeared online showing that the phone runs Gingerbread skinned with the updated MotoBLUR bringing even better social networking integration. The DROID 3 is also the first phone on Verizoncapable
of recording 1080p full HD
(HD+ in Verizon's terms) videos with its 8-megapixel rear camera.
Thanks, BigEaze22 and Austin!
