    I came across this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-3/160032-anandtechs-quick-droid3-review.html

    Thats more like a preview or quick review like the OP stated.

    I like whats being said about this phone. And I love Anandtech's reviews. Here is the full review:

    I am think hard about getting it along with either the GS2 or Bionic. Wish I woulda jumped on the family plan, data plan deals from last year.

    Yeah I read that a week or two ago. If something isn't done about this phone's weird battery situations then all the benchmarks in the world are useless.

    It's certainly a fast device but at the cost of battery life. I'm not sure speed is all that needs to be bench marked on these Droid 3s

    My battery life is just as good as my Droid 1. AnandTech's battery life test confirms my experiences.

    The full review is excellent. I read it Saturday when it went live...or was it Friday night? Anyway, they are easily my go-to source for cell phone reviews. They often don't have the review out by release day because they are so thorough, but it's worth waiting.

    By far the best review that I've seen yet.

    Wow, I'm due for an upgrade at the end of the month. Can I wait that long?!?!?! I figured I would stay with my OG Droid until the end of the year--when the price on the D3 drops a bit--but that review seriously undermines my patience. Argh.

    They mention that the GB keyboard is preinstalled, not on mine it's not. Anyone have it?

    Its running gingerbread it has the GB keyboard. Its not labeled as that but that's what the stock virtual keyboard is.

    end of line...

    Ok, it's just not listed like they show in the screen shot from the review.

    Thanks

    My bad. Found the shot you're referring too. Mine doesn't list the GB keyboard either but the multitouch looks like the GB keyboard I ran on my D1. Maybe he's reviewing a preproduction model?
