Droid 3 specs

Hey, look at that. It's the Verizon Droid 3 specs -- and lined up next to the Droid 2 and Droid X2 for good measure. Let's just give 'em the full rundown.

The Droid 3 looks like it'll launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The screen resolution has already been all but confirmed at qHD resolution (that's 540x960), and it's repeated here as well, with a 4-inch diagonal screen size.

The Droid 3's looking at that dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1GHz processor, and is a world phone as well, meaning you can use it on GSM networks overseas.

It's got dual cameras, of course, with the rear shooter (really, the only one we care about) running 8 megapixels, capable of recording 1080p video. And it's got an LED flash, of course.

Memory's a mixed bag, it appears. The Droid 3 will have 16GB of internal storage, which is mighty generous. But in return for that generosity, someone's skimped on the microSD card, leaving it out completely.

Working our way down the list: Other items of note are the slide-out five-row keyboard, which will be supplemented by Swype. Adobe Flash and DLNA support are there as well, as is the usual VCAST service, and Blockbuster video (downloadable over Wifi only).

So that's it. All in all, nothing we weren't expecting, especially since the Milestone 3 (aka the non-U.S. verison) is already out there. Along with some hardware refinements, not a very big departure from the Droid 2, at least as the overall look and feel go. But why mess with a good thing, right?

Full breakdown is after the break.

Thanks, anon!

OK, over on DL the full spec sheet indicates "no pre-installed microSD, expandable up to 32GB microSD"

so...it has a slot, but doesn't come with a card? Hopefully.

That's exactly what it means. They just didn't include a card in the box. The slot is still on the phone.

Glad to hear the phone has the SD slot, at least. Otherwise, it would have been just an iPhone with a keyboard.

yo read it wrong dude, it means that it didn't come with micro SD card but you can buy it separately....

Motorola has cancled the bionic early this year and will have a diferant device with the same name more than likely in the 4th quater

Um, no.

@Motorola:
DROID Bionic is coming and slated for summer release. Our team is working on some new updates.

Don't know where you are getting your info, but strait from Motorola is more credible than them.

They cancelled Etna, they are replacing it with Targa. They both lay claim to the phone that we'll know as the Droid Bionic.

Oh and I bet it's out in about 3 or 4 weeks tops.

Not sure I REALLY care about the SD card since I'll just be putting the one from my OG Droid in this one anyway. That is...IF I get this phone. But someone better tell me about the bootloader, the RAM, and just how bad the display is...

It still has the microSD slot, it just doesn't include a card in the box. We all already have a microSD card in our phone now or can get one cheap.

It's not like they left the slot completely out, like Samsung has been doing lately.

FYI to everyone who owns the Droid 2 Global, at the bottom it says you are expected to get Gingerbread "soon after launch of the Droid 3".

I assume that includes the Droid 2 & Droid R2D2 too.

guys stop complaining. go buy your own 32 gig sd card. i believe there is a hdmi port. but yeah what is the battiery size in this bad boy?

I'm sure the battery won't be upgraded to much, if at all. For the most part id say its gonna have whatever the dx2 has because it dosent have anything to really drain the battery like the tblot does.

Most of us already have 8 or 16gb cards so I kinda understand leaving it out. Plus they're cheap now anyway. I just wish d3 had lte im gonna hold out still

>"Memory's a mixed bag, it appears. The Droid 3 will have 16GB of internal storage"

Storage is the correct word, not "memory". Not a word was mentioned about memory (RAM)...

Although I would have preferred more RAM, this will likely be my next phone. Also, maybe the author of the article doesn't care about front-facing camera, but I certainly do!

Ugh, seriously? This would be my phone if it had 4G. Who promotes the fact that their compay is "the biggest and best" 4G outlet, then launches a phone without 4G? Stupid.

maybe they want to wait til 4G is nationwide before making a member of the Droid(i know there's the droid charge, but i'm talking about Droid, Droid 2, Droid 2G etc., that droid family) family 4G, or maybe they're waiting for the Droid 4(G)?

Wow, no 4G, another fail Verizon. What's with Verizon? They either release a single core 4G phone, or a dual core with no 4G. Ridiculous. How many people are gonna regret buying that Charge/Droid 3/Revolution/etc. when Verizon actually gets a dual core 4G powerhouse? Verizon needs to catch up with tech.

We don't have 4g , ok no T mobile nonsense, real 4g in enough places but my God don't we have enough Droids already without 4G? Phones are mobile and the people that own them travel...wait for it...so put the damn antenna in there you cheap b@$tards... The market gets new devices in waves that run android so hey lets give people a reason to not buy our new device....while were at it no SD card included so there! All done. We have been successful in confusing the customer!

Hum...my droid 2 is already the best phone I've ever owned.. Including the iphone S. 4" screen and video calls 32 gig memory, nice. My upgrade is in Oct. Looks like we have a winner!
