    [RUMOR] Droid 3 end of life?




    If the rumor coming from an anonymous tipster at the Verge turns out to be true we could be seeing the Droid 3 reaching it's EOL later this month. The tipster claims the "last shipments of the Droid 3 will be arriving in January." Pretty crazy after 6 months we are seing this but there has been a lot of chatter, with pics, to support the rumor of a Droid 4 release in February so we really can't say we are surprised.

    The idea of handsets reaching EOL after 6 months is a little concerning but lets hope that Verizon continues to support the Droid 3.

    Other equipment the tipster said was on the list includes the LG Revolution (seven months on the market), the BlackBerry Curve 3G, and the Palm Pre 2. Additionally Verizon is supposedly discontinuing all its available Mi-Fi Hotspots, as well.

    It's still the best 3G phone available for Verizon IMO, regardless of its EOL status.

    +1. The D3 is still a very good phone. With the D4 coming its expected, but doesn't mean the D3 is outdated. Its the last high end 3G only phone the VZW will market. I am glad I got it and waited a generation or 2 on 4G. When my next upgrade comes LTE will be sorted out and that phone will be outstanding.

    I would have stayed with 3G phones if Verizon hadn't come out with the Nexus. I don't even really use 4G. I just wanted a Nexus .

    I don't even own a D3 and I think that's crazy. Way to fast for it to be EOLed already.

    As online support-groups have popped up for D3 owners, who are experiencing grief, disorientation, and depression at the news of the D4 release, I've been saying over and over that those feelings are real, and they deserve sympathy and compassion.

    I think this news pretty much provides a final and convincing response to those callous "other-phone" owners who tended to say, "SUCK IT UP!" No, this is unusual, over the top, and really, really frustrating. And we're not overreacting! OK, maybe we're a little melodramatic, but it's still pretty annoying.

    Bah! Who cares about support from Big Red? With Dev's like Buckmarble, Pedwards3x, HashCode, ChevyCam, etc. the 3 will be viable for a good long time.

    Time, which maybe VZW can use to finally figure out how to make 4G reliable.

    Six months is way too quick. Wouldn't a year be more the norm?
