    Looking into buying a D3 but i want to make sure its future proof, (dual core, hi-Res display, better keyboard) but i haven't found anything that has said that it has an NFC chip inside it, which is something I know I would use for google wallet. So, does it have it?

    Nope. Not unless they're keeping it completely secret for some odd reason.

    No phone or any type of electronic is Future proof,
    Not even sure what this NFC chipset you're talking about is

    NFC = Near Field Communication . It essentially allows for the quick transfer of information through touch or close proximity. It can be used for several things, but one of the main uses that it's being touted for with phones is making payments.

    I don't think there's a single device announced with a NFC chip/standards yet, so your answer is most likely no.

    There's rumor that Google/Apple are looking to use it, but nothing concrete yet.

    That's a damn shame. Looks like I'll be waiting for the Nexus Prime, and its 720p hi Res display, Ice Cream San which, and NFC goodness.

    That is IF verizon even gets the Nexus Prime, and that's a big IF.

    I know.its a gamble. How is the Droid 3 as a phone? Is it pretty solid or is there still some bugs to fix?

    From the 3 or 4 hours i have spent playing with it, i really like it. Its fast and smooth no lag, none that i notice but there is a ton or bloatware. The camera is awesome and so is the screen. The keyboard is a welcome improvement over both the D1 and D2 keyboard.
    And you got to love the fact that it has a 4" screen.

    For some people, battery sucks. So there might be a fix for that. Otherwise, it's overall great. Once this thing is rooted.. oh boy!

    some people complain about the screen, but I'm gonna say I'll stand behind moto's decision to give this thing a screen fit for a phone instead of a multimedia device. ie, better battery life and readable in the sunlight.

    Don't get me wrong, its a mighty fine screen for consuming media, but I don't think its going to win awards over iphone etc. But when I want to watch movies etc, I'll break out the nook color.

    but I wouldn't bank on a phone for NFC for at least another year or two, and probably even further. People are going to be very wary of a technology that can mess with their money.

    In terms of battery, I've lasted almost two days without a charge and I'm at 20%. The battery and phone appear to require some bonding time for a few charges before things level out.

    Check out my pictures posted in the Battery Life? thread.

    Cell phones, especially right now, are probably the worst technology to be looking for "future proof".

    +1 to this.

    I mean, there weren't even any Tegra2 devices on the market yet when we hear about Tegra3...

    There are companies that are designing SD cards with NFC technology built into them. The phone will require an app to interface with it

    Well from all of you it seems like a great device. I played with one yesterday in the Verizon store and it was extremely fast. The pentile screen was a bit pixely for my tastes but you said it does great in sun light which would be great because i work primarily outdoors and the D2s screen is aweful outside. So what would you guys say, because i am tempted by it, is it worth the $460 off contract?

    I bought mine off contract, and I think it was worth every penny.
