Pictures of the Motorola DROID 3 leak, reveal front-facing camera
With all of the talk about the Motorola DROID Bionic, the Targa and the DROID X^2, the Motorola DROID 3 has been conspicuous by its absence. But today, a picture of the phone was leaked. Actually, what was photographed was screen and top half kits by a OEM parts retailer called Global Redirects Parts.

The parts retailer might have made a slip-up when it mistakenly called the phone in the photo the Motorola Targa. As you know, the Targa-quite possibly to be named the DROID Bionic before launch-bares a strong resemblance to the DROID X. The code name for the DROID 3 is Solana.

While so far the Motorola DROID 3 does not exist according to Verizon and Motorola, the pictures do strongly show a phone that would be everything you would expect the DROID 3 to be with a front-facing camera and a slightly bigger 4 inch screen than the 3.7 inch display from the first two Motorola DROID models.

Agree. I work for ATT so I don't want to let my service discount go, but I'd sure like a Android phone with a keyboard. I just cant let go of physical keyboards.

i have no doubt this will have a duel core, i probably won't use an upgrade to get this phone but i would do a warranty replacement on my Droid 2 to get it.

I have the Thunderbolt and love it, but if this phone is LTE, I'm putting the TB on Craigslist, and buying this.

OK, seriously? What's wrong with some people on PA? This comment above me is a perfectly viable opinion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, yet it gets thumbs down? Why? What, in the comment above, deserves a thumb down? Are we no longer allowed to have our own personal tastes and opinions? Just let the man do what he wants with his phone, or are we just too temperamental?

Now how about some AT&T 3G bands so I can stop looking for a decent slider to use on AT&T?? If Nokia can sell a phone through a carrier here AND still sell an unlocked version in the same market, get your shit together Moto and do the same thing. I'm sick of this lack of choice in this market if you want to stick to one carrier, especially when it comes to Android phones.

Oh good. The same effing design as the last two...fantastic. Nothing I love more than seeing stagnation in design with upgraded internals....

Considering how popular the first two Droids were, why would they change it's physical design? If Moto Droid user are bored with it, they will move to the other options from Motorola or HTC or Samsung. But the appeal of the physical keyboard kinda dictates the design.

Well, I hate to point this out... but... it's the next version of the same phone. I would have to agree with snowgator. It works well. Why change it?

If they completely changed the look and design of the phone, why bother call it the Droid 3 and what not? Just as long as they actually give it the updates it needs. I like the fact that it has a larger screen, most likely will also have a qhd display, dual core processor, upgraded RAM, and of course a even better qwerty keyboard. The design of the droid has always been great, I still have mine from when it first came out and it still works great.
