    We have three awesome pieces of news for you guys regarding the Motorola Droid 3. Front and center is the best news of all, the device will be released to direct-fill on July 7th, and come to regular retail stores on July 14th! This is confirmed from a couple of different sources. The second bit of info to share is that you can now download and check out the Droid 3 User Manual. The Manual says that the phone is definitely coming with a new version of MotoBlur, if that floats your boat. Here's a download link for the Droid 3 User Manual. The last thing to share is the below pics. These are just a couple of the pics that Droid-Life was able to snag from the 360 degree web-view of the phone that is not available yet.

    It's almost here folks! dancedroid

    Yeah I've read the same in more than one place, but always speculation--never pointing back to anything released by Verizon.

    I was itching to get this phone. But, the thing is, my Droid 2 is still pretty new (to me) as I snagged it on a Black Friday sale last year. I have an upgrade waiting on deck, and the fact that this thing has a keyboard gives me hope for a Droid 4 having one.

    I'll let this one go simply on reason of my "upgrade every other version" rule that I like to follow. If the Droid 4 has a qwerty keyboard, and (very likely) the 4G, I'll be all over that.

    Those of you with the OG Droid, this is probably the upgrade you're been waiting for. :)

    In the manual it shows a MicroSD card slot and notes that the actual card is sold (possibly) sold separately.
