    Some nice pictures of the Motorola Droid 3 (Milestone 3) have been leaked thanks to xda.cn. The article is in Chinese but there is a plethora of high resolution pictures of the device. Engadget was kind enough to break down some of the text and has confirmed the following specs:

    • 4" qHD Screen
    • 8 Megapixel Camera
    • HDMI Out
    • 1500mAH Battery
    • OMAP 4430 Processor
    • 512MB RAM

    Expected launch date on the Verizon network is July 7th... unfortunately a little late for you to get your fireworks action on with your new device in your pocket.

    Very disappointed in this. I was relying on this being my upgrade from my D1. I'm one of the few that prefer a physical keyboard vs touchscreen.

    After this crap, I might have to bite my tongue and get a Thunderbolt or hold out for the Galaxy II.

    Yeah, I was excited about the D3 until today. Now I'm going to hold out for the Galaxy S2, unless the Bionic comes out first with 4G and really blows me away.

    I'm hoping the pathetic amount of RAM is unique to the Milestone 3 and the Droid 3 will have more. I am really hoping the Droid 3 will have WebTop for the bump in RAM, but after seeing the latest pics, I'm doubtful it will happen. If these are in fact the specs the Droid 3 will get, I might consider it for <=$150.

    Thanks for making my decision to upgrade to a SGSII... well, if that ever reaches the states.

    Besides the lower RAM, this is pretty much exactly what's been expected for months now. I'm not sure why everyone is acting so disappointed all of a sudden, unless they haven't been following the Droid 3 at all. Even then, there's nothing that's behind the curve for a 3G phone besides the RAM (and the pentile screen for some). It doesn't bring anything new to the table, but it's not like it's going to be slouch.

    Not 4G enabled..why? That should have been a standard feature a year ago (or whenever they started establishing LTE). To date, only what? 4 phones have LTE right now?

    So I'm still on the OG Droid, how much better is the screen here? I always thought qHD was much better because it's obviously newer tech @ higher resolution. Why all the hate for pentile?

    Also is the SG S2 going to have twice the ram of this with 1GB?

    It may be no slouch, correct. It may run better than a stock fascinate, d1, or inc. But this phone will definitely have some lag. Blur and Moto's way of handle available ram will hinder the device somewhat.

    And yes, instead of Moto putting out 2 crappy 3g phones and one way off 4g phone...why couldn't they spend their time on one really good 4g phone.
