Motorola Droid fans have reason to celebrate today. Verizon just unveiled the latest iteration of the popular device, the Motorola Droid 3. This new version boasts a host of improved features and components such as 1-GHz dual-core CPU, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 4-inch qHD display, and 1080p HD video capture.
Droid addicts will appreciate the 5-row physical keyboard, which houses dedicated number keys, a feature absent from previous droids. The screen has been bumped up to a bigger 4-inch size with a sharper 960 x 540 resolution panel.
Other enhancements include an HDMI port to output HD video to compatible TVs which also mirrors what’s shown on the phone, an 8 megapixel camera, plus a front-facing camera for video chat. The device is able to accept SIM cards for use overseas.
Unfortunately, at a time when LTE phones are all the rage, the Droid 3 is stuck on Verizon’s old school 3G network. Those looking for a dual core LTE handset may be more excited about the Droid Bionic, due later this summer. However, that handset lacks a physical keyboard.
On sale now online for $199.99, the Droid 3 is expected to hit Verizon stores by July 14th. Check back soon for a full review.
