Leaky Droid 3 Expose’s more Juicy Details
What can you say about the Motorola Droid? It’s the one that started it all, the Android QWERTY that set the bar for all following Android sliders with a keyboard. The original Motorola Droid released in 2009 and a refresh of the ever popular device has released every year since its inception, and why not its form factor, design and level of performance is amazing and the name helped spawn thousands of devoted fans. The Droid 2 released August of last year and it looks as if the Droid 3 is having a hard time staying under wraps and that’s ok by us. So let’s take a look at the next iteration of the device that made the world think every phone is a Droid.
A few months back pictures of the Droid 3 and assumed Droid X2 leaked all over the interwebs giving those interested some eye candy until the device gets some more exposure. Today TechnoBuffalo has dropped a dime on the Droid 3 with some new details surrounding the Droid 3. The picture above shows off the Droid 3 and its beautiful QWERTY and was exposed within a pretty lengthy Droid 3 Pre Release thread at HowardForums. The scoop which was given to TechnoBuffalo by an anonymous tipster lays out some goodies. Firstly and presumably most notable is the return of the dedicated numbers row. The Droid 2 opted to omit the dedicated numeral buttons and has been getting slack for it since. You have to love how Motorola listens! The camera on this new Droid 3 is said to be getting an improvement as well, the Droid 3 will come fully equipped with an 8 megapixel shooter, three times better than the previous installments. While we’re on camera’s it should be noted that a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera can also be found on the front of the Droid 3 for all your video conferencing needs. The screen on the Droid 3 will be getting an improvement as well and falling in line with the presumable future of all Motorola devices. You will be able to find a 4 inch qHD screen with a 540×960 pixel resolution on the new Droid 3. The rumors also suggest that the Droid 3 will be using a dual core processor and go on to suggest it will be of NVIDIA Tegra 2 or a TI OMAP4430 flavors. The last bit of rumor surrounding the Droid 3 is its LTE compatibility, or lack thereof in this situation. The Droid 3 will lack compatibility with Verizon’s LTE network, while this is hard to believe and completely understandable it is still a rumor, so the potential is there. Just don’t bank on it.
Tell us what you think of the new Motorola Droid 3. Even with the lack of LTE this Droid 3 is poised to be the best full QWERTY slider Android has ever seen. Are you interested in the new Droid 3? Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think.droid, Droid 3, Android, Verizon, LTE
