    I think the battery issue will be addressed in time, so I dont see that being a relly big deal.

    Yeah, but this phone isnt released yet, so I guess Id just be better with them delaying it and releasing it when they had it right. rather then releaseing a flagship phone withour 4G. The only thing that may explain it is theyre have even more problems with the 4G LTE thing then even we think or theyre letting one and its really that far off.

    At long last, a new Droid with a physical keyboard. But yet, I find myself barely interested. Whats the use in having a forward facing camera? The iPhone has it but one can video chat with that. Can the Droid do that now as well? 4G means nothing to me but with all this hype going around and everyone swearing by 4G its a surprise that it isnt on there.

    Maybe its me but I was expecting so much more from this. This phone, so far, is a serious let down. Its not screaming out 'GET YOURSELF LOCKED INTO A 2 YEAR CONTRACT FOR ME' at the moment. Any specs? Whats the internal memory?

    From Android Authority


    • 1Ghz OMAP 4 Processor
    • HDMI
    • 16GB of Memory
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 8 Megapixel Camera (Some reports are suggesting its 5, but we have good reason to believe its 8, as the firmware indicates it is a possible capable resolution)
    • 5 Row QWERTY Keyboard
    • 4 Inch Screen
    • Slimmer profile than the Droid 1 or Droid 2

    I don't give a golly gosh darned about 4G. We don't have it in my area yet, and probably won't for a while. I may just buy this phone full retail if my upgrade date isn't close to the release date (got my D1 August of 2010).

    Unless some problem is found with this phone, it will replace my Droid when my last NE2 is available at the end of July. We get 4G next year, but I have no need for it. Physical keyboard with numeric row, higher resolution and faster processor make it about as perfect as it could be for me. Only thing I fear is that it will have Motoblur. :(

    While it would be nice, some of the firmware information posted awhile back on Howard Forums by some very reliable folks indicate that it will have Motoblur.

    It would be nice if Motorola changed their mind, but since it doesn't look like this is going to be a launch device for a new OS version (like the original Droid), chances are it will have Blur. I would love to be wrong about that.

    If it does, it might make me keep my Droid for another year. I really hope that it doesn't. The Droid 3 is the only phone that I am interested in at all.

    The only other phone on the horizon that even remotely interests me is the xperia pro...no idea if it will be on VZW though. (Ill admit the xperia play is tempting)

    I need my physical keyboard... and size doesn't help on screen keyboards. Im typing this on a nook color, and still really hate the virtual keyboard.

    Thanks!

    Sad thing is there isnt so much as one Droid coming out that interests me. I really dont want to turn my back on Android but my phone is on the fritz, I need a new one and nothing good is out.
