Motorola DROID 3 touches down at Verizon stores today
Just in case anyone forgot the significance of July 14th, we just wanted to remind you that the Motorola DROID 3 is now available from your local Verizon store. Sure, you could have ordered the next generation DROID online last week, but there is nothing that captures the feeling of walking into your carrier's closest location and walking out with a brand new handset in your palm. And of course, there is that new smartphone smell!
Priced at $199.99 with a signed 2-year pact, Motorola made some improvements to the latest build of the phone that started Androidmania in November 2009. Of course, there is that 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 processor (which makes the phone in line to be one of the first to get Netflix HD), and the 4 inch qHD screen. The slide out QWERTY keyboard now has 5 rows with the top row dedicated to numbers. The Motorola DROID 3 comes with 16GB of memory which can be raised to as high as 48GB using a 32GB microSD card.
Verizon customers used to a physical keyboard might jump at the Motorola DROID 3, which as we all know is not 4G enabled. Those who can afford to wait will probably do so, hoping that talk of an upcoming launch for the mythical Motorola DROID Bionic, which will come with LTE connectivity, is correct.
After a week of online sales, the Motorola DROID 3 is now available at Verizon stores
