Motorola DROID 3 hits Verizon's website, you can get it now for $200
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 Verizon capable of recording 1080p full HD (HD+ in Verizon's terms) videos with its 8-megapixel rear camera.


Thanks, BigEaze22 and Austin!

Yeehaw. The first Motorola phone shipping with Gingerblur right out of the box, and the keyboard looks great too. I have a very good friend, she has long nails so pure touchscreen typing is kind of an annoyance to her. She'll like this.

Ordered mine this morning, will have in hand on Friday. Yay! Of course the biggest yay is that I have another upgrade later this month so the Bionic is also on the immediate horizon.

A Verizon rep that a friend of mine uses said that LTE is at least at the end of 2012 for us, and I will still believe it when I see it. (Put money on 2013 at earliest.) This, the X2, and the well recieved HTC Trophy are all serious contenders for our buisness if we jump ship to Big Red about August. Once the Bionic and that mythical Samsung GS2 hit, this 200$ price may drop some. (I am a cheap person at heart!!) The phone looks great- one of the best laid out keyboards I have ever seen. Excited to see how the phone reacts to it's great processor. The X2 is alive and vibrant- very smooth. Expect nothing less from the Droid 3. If these 2 are any indication, the Bionic and the Photon are gonna be beasts. Seems strange, I didn't think the Atrix was as nice. I liked it, but not the "wow" factor in the performance. Maybe just the one I tried. Maybe I should give it another chance...

Yes! please will the first person to confirm tell us did this ship with the expected 512 ram, or did it get a last minute boost to 1gb

23. Jfish unregistered

Is this 4g?

26. me unregistered

I'm not one of the experts, but I'm pretty sure from what all sources say that it is a fact that it is NOT 4G

Yea it's looking like 512 mb of ram folks. Just looked at the 360 view. That is a dam good looking phone. If I wasn't so dead set on the Bionic id be all over this.

Gingerblur will help take the load off of the 512 mb.
