Motorola Droid 3 leaks out in new tutorial videos

32

As we've seen many times before, Motorola likes to do up plenty of tutorial videos for new devices when they launch but that may have back fired a little this time around and the unannounced Motorola Droid 3 is the subject of today's lessons. We've seen plenty of images of the device in the past but we now can confirm a few more things about the device without it being rumors.

It's packing an 8-megapixel camera and according to the info is capable of capturing up to 1080p video. Swype is coming pre-loaded and both micro-USB and mini-HDMI sit to the left of the device with the dedicated volume keys pushed to the right. The video doesn't say what version of Android will be loaded upon release but it does note the software is subject to change at the bottom of each video. Interested in seeing more? Jump on past the break for a look at the rest of the videos.

June 24 still looking good for the EVO 3D, Radio Shack hints

24

 

The HTC EVO 3D just hit this week's Radio Shack weekly ad, along with a preorder offer that doesn't actually work just yet. (Could be people are still waking up.) But, we do have the following: Radio Shack's doing a trade-in deal -- $100 off the EVO 3D if you bring in an EVO 4G or EVO 4G Shift (the latter being all of five months or so old at this point), and $75 off other smartphones. And that trade-in offer doesn't start until June 24. So, yeah. June 24's still looking pretty good right about now, at least as far as Radio Shack is concerned.

T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G video hands-on

31

Read our HTC Sensation Review (European version)

Oh, my. So that's what all the fuss is about. We just gave the European version of the HTC Sensation a thorough what-for (read our full review), and now it's time to do the same for the U.S. version, which will be known here in the colonies as the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G.

Believe the hype, folks. From the moment you pick up the Sensation, you know it's going to be quality work. It just feels like an HTC phone. It's sleek. It's smooth. It's got just the right amount of heft to it. Not too heavy, not too light.

And as much as we've come to terms with the fact that most of the phones in our current arsenal won't ever officially see the new HTC Sense 3.0, we're practically elated to have it on the Sensation.

Find out what's got us so giddy in our initial hands-on video after the break.
