    The Droid1 and Droid2 had very few changes between them, with just slight improvements in most areas, the new changes with the Droid 3 aren’t slight in any sense. According to Global Direct Parts, a reseller of OEM components for mobile devices, the Droid 3 has some major changes coming. The changes their pictures portrayed are; a bigger screen, a front facing camera, no more hump on the bottom, rearranged buttons, cleaner looking front, and a bigger screen… or did I already say that. Now this information is being questioned by some because the Droid 3 is not expected to come in for a few months, so it's very strange that they received their parts so darn early.

    However if this turns out to be true, the Droid3 might be another hit, a hit that is only limited by the lack of 4G that has been rumored to plague the device from day one.

    I moved on to an X now but I loved my OG Droid so much for so long that I know I'll be paying full price to get the D3. Is there anymore specs on it yet?

    YES!!!!! oh I so don't care about no 4G.....you have no idea. When I am online.....80 to 85% of the time I am on WiFi and there ain't no way 4g can compete.

    I've read that the D3 will have totally stock Android. Also, it has a separate number row.

    Pictures were leaked of this quite awhile back, including one that shows the 5 row keyboard with a dedicated number row. I'm surprised that it's just now getting much in the way of attention after the screen became available in some fashion to Global Direct Parts. Rumors indicate a dual core processor, qHD screen, and global capabilities in addition to the front facing camera, 5 row keyboard, and 4" screen. Reliable Motorola insiders on Howard Forums seem to think that baring any delays, it might be released sooner rather than later, possibly before the end of Q2. The Droid 2 came out shortly after the Droid X, so it wouldn't be unreasonable to think that the Droid 3 might follow shortly after the Droid X 2.

    If this drops before the middle of July, it will be my next phone.

    if it doesn't have it upon release it wont be far behind. If the DX and D2 get GB the D3 will have it as well as the DX2

    I'm really anticipating this phone. I, too, really don't care about 4G. I'm fine with 3G and I've read that battery life sucks on 4G. I just hope this comes with an unlocked bootloader, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm eligible for an upgrade in September :(

    I find it strange that Verizon spent all that money on rolling out a 4g network and spending the money on advertising and they continue to roll out non-4g compatible phones. I have a droid X and live in a major market with 4g. I don't think I would consider buying a non 4g phone with Verizon next.

    Great looks awesome, but no 4G = fail for me. I have absolutly 0 interest in a phone that doesnt have 4G. Id rather them delay it and get the 4G working rather then release it without it.

    Well I have had the D1 for quite a while now and have an upgrade at the end of the summer. I told myself that i would never own a phone without a QWERTY and after trying some touch screen keyboard phones I plan to stick to my word. Also, in my upgrade I am looking for a fast phone, front camera, qwerty, and hopefully easy to root...

    I am quite shocked about the lack of 4G however. I mean I am doing quite well on 3G but I thought 4G was the future? It is stupid but I guess it's not a big deal. Verizon probably won't put out a QWERTY phone besides this for a long time anyway... uhgg

    Yikes... now this thing has no 4G?

    Maybe its just me, but with the Bionic being cancelled, the 'new Bionic' (Targa) being redesigned because its 4G hardware and software wasn't working properly, and now the Droid 3 coming out without 4G like it was supposed to.... Yeah, it just reeks that Motorola is having massive problems with a properly working LTE Radio.

    Kind of glad I got the TBolt instead of waiting. Yeah, dual cores might be nice and all, but if the LTE systems are all screwy, it won't matter. I'll wait for Moto to come out with devices that not only have 4G, but have it working without issue before thinking of going back. Too many red flags right now.

    I'm tempted to get a droid 3 when it comes out. Unfortunately my contract isn't up for renewal until summer of 2012, the droid 4 will be coming out by then.

    I have a Droid. I love it to death. Best phone I've ever had. I'll be eligible for a new upgrade January 2012. I'm not sure what's gonna come out by then but It has to be a Droid type phone. But as of now, I'm either gonna get Droid 3 or Droid Bionic. Surely things will be fixed by the time I get either of them.

    I don't know if I'm happy or not that the D3 is without* 3G. Going from a D1 to a Tbolt, I do miss the slideout QWERTY. If it's without 4G I'm happy switching to a 4G phone, if the D3 HAS 4G, I'm sad that I bought the Tbolt as the D1 and D2 all have special places in my heart...


    *since it's still unreleased as of yet, I'm not comfy saying it is with or without ANYTHING right now.

    ^ I meant to say I don't know if I'm happy or not that the D3 is without* 4G... Obviously it'll have 3G. I would have edited that post, but I can't find the edit button. Didn't want to leave any troll bait laying around...
