    Confirmed specs on the Droid 3

    So I called up Verizon this morning and talked to a guy in Tech Support I explained that I have done a lot of research and found out that the Droid 3 is being released tomorrow and he said that is correct I went on to ask him some of the specifics on the phones and they are as follow:

    Android OS Gingerbread 2.3
    512 Ram (27% faster then Droid 2)
    16GB onboard memory expandable to 32GB
    8Meg Camera
    3G

    He went over the other details that have already been touched on and confirmed in pictures:

    5 row QWERTY
    4 inch screen
    Aluminum trim
    Textured rubber back

    I'm elegible now to get an upgrade and he said with my $50 new every 2 credit the phone will cost me $149.99 shipped to my door

    Everything sounds good to me and the way I look at it is I've been more then happy with my Droid 1 so anything is better. I wish it had 4G but ill wait for that to be expanded and worked through a little better, I have amazing 3G service where I live so I'm fine with another 3G phone.

    I just wanted to share what I found out I don't post here to often so I hope this is not double info...

    Thanks for getting the specs from the horse's mouth. This is the first confirmation I've seen that it indeed has 512MB of RAM. IMHO, it's pretty disappointing that it doesn't have more RAM and Moto decided this wasn't going to be a high-end device worthy of Webtop; if it had 1GB+ of RAM, I'd be quite interested and Webtop would make me more interested.

    Yea I wish it was a Top end phone with new features and all but for what I do for a living (construction worker) and what I do on my phone this seems like enough of an upgrade to justify getting one.

    I'm not sure if I will order mine tomorrow site unseen or wait till next week and play with it in person at the corporate store and then decide from there if I buy it...

    I'm used to having the newsest and best "Top Teir" stuff (cars, bikes, phones, tv's, game systems etc...) but I'm starting to change a little because I'm starting to realize its not getting me anywhere but further in debt lol and with just getting married and trying to save money for a house and eventually babies I need to slow down on my free spending. Anyway enough of that all I'm saying is based on the stats of this device it looks like a worthy device to get me somewhat current and a new phone to play with..

    What type of RAM is the 512? I know there was a lot of speculation that Motorola was going with DDR2, which would have been nice.

    You forgot to mention it has a dual core, and higher resolution qhd pentile display. Personally, I hate pentile screens.

    They completely botched the hardware in this phone. The only thing it has going for it is the 5 row keyboard (who needs one) and slightly faster processing and graphics. 27% is barely noticeable if u overclocked the d2/dx, and only 30% over the already terrible PowerVR SGX530 in the D2Global is quite a disappointment. The 540 in the galaxy and ip4 are better.

    Not a wise choice for an upgrade from a d2 or dx.

    HOLD UP! I just called back to confirm that the phone has the Dual Core and it does! So that's cool she also confirmed that it has an HD display with yada yada resolution and 4 inch touch screen. While I had the lady on the phone who didn't seem to know much about specifics on phones and was litterally reading the info off of her computer screen she reads to me that it has and "1 ghz dual core processor" and I said wait your screen specifically says that it has 1 ghz and she yes I'm reading it right from my phones specification screen...

    SO it looks like the phone will not have 512 but 1 gig let's hope I'm not being lied to since the phone is not "released" yet but we will see tomorrow.

    1 ghz is the clock speed of the processor. Not 1gb of memory, sigh.

    Ok so there was some confusion on my part. Why do you say the Droid 3 is not a wise upgrade from my D1? I leave my phones stock I don't brick, break, crack or hack my phones so it seems to me having double the ram and a dual core which my D1 doesn't have it would be plenty fast and be perfectly fine to upgrade to.

    Maybe with some insite from Droid and general phone savvy people I can learn some stuff.
