We know that many of the popular Droid smartphones from Verizon are reaching the end of their life cycle, including the Droid Incredible (March 31), Droid X, and the Droid 2 Global. We've been seeing leaked photos recently of the Droid Incredible 2, Droid X2, and now the Droid 3.
The Droid 3 looks a lot like the original Droid and the Droid 2, which was replaced by the Droid 2 Global. It has a landscape slider QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard has an added row of keys, making it a five-row keyboard for easier typing. It looks like it has a front-facing camera for video calling.
The other speculated specs of the Droid 3 are Android 2.2 with MotoBlur
UI and a 1.3GHz processor (the Droid 2 Global has a 1.2GHz processor). The photo shows an HDMI video out port next to the micro-USB port. The
arrangement is a perfect fit for Motorola WebTop docks, which includes the laptop
dock, media dock and clock dock. The suggested release date is late
Previous leaks suggested that Droid 3 would have a 4" screen with qHD resolution (960 x 540), which is the same as the well-reviewed Motorola Atrix.
