If you have been holding out for the Droid 3, and didn't pre-order already, today is the big day that they start rolling out nationwide to retailers. At Verizon, they will be $199.99 on-contract, and of course they have been available on Verizon's website for that price for almost a week already. Luckily, there are cheaper alternatives available today, and WireFly is the place to go. They now have the Droid 3 for only $149.99 on a new or renewed 2-year contract. Oddly, if you wanted to buy the phone from WireFly "off-contract" it would run you $549.99, which is actually quite a bit more than buying it straight from Verizon for $459.99. I guess they had to make up that sale-price deficit somewhere...
Here's a quick refresher of the specs:
- 4" QHD display (960x540)
- Dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor (it's faster than a Tegra 2)
- 512MB RAM
- 1080p video capture, front and rear cameras
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard
