    I thought I would put a comment out to see who in the developer community is planning on getting a D3? I know everyone wants 4G LTE, but even my market isn't getting it until EOY and by CES we will see the REAL 4G LTE phones come out for Spring/Summer 2012 release.

    So I am leaning very heavily towards the D3, but I have no developer experience and WILL DONATE to a developer who will. I donated time and again for the Droid Charge Devs and I will continue to support devs anyway I can.

    So if you are a Developer and you are going to get the D3 but need donations to get you there now is the time to speak up and let the community know.

    I am ordering this phone on the 7th of July. I would also donate to a developer who worked on this device.

    Well it depends on the bootloader too. Hopefully its not encrypted.

    What are the chances that the bootloader WON'T be locked"?

    I'm thinking that is a done deal.

    Well it might be locked on launch but there's a good chance it'll get the unlockable bootloader in an update. In the end it's up to VZW but we can certainly hope it get the unlockable bootloader ASAP.

    That is good news. I do hope you develop for it, and I am willing to donate to developers who do.

    I'm a long time D1 user who just ordered a D3 and love playing around with new ROMs, really looking forward to this, and I too will donate whatever I can to dev's.

    Well I ordered my D3 today and got overnight shipping, so as soon as that arrives tomorrow I will start on an initial ROM with the basics + plus root, nothing fancy but at least get something out so that you guys can see that I am working on it. Depending on when Fed-Ex shows up we'll see how early I can get something up. I thought D-fill on the 7th meant I can get it in store the 7th, but I was told you can't get it in store till the 14th, but you can order it starting today, which is exactly what I did.

    Same here, I opted for overnight shipping as well... I figured the wait over the weekend would have slowly driven me insane, plus now I have all weekend to play around with it....

    Really looking forward to seeing what you can come up with!

    Great to see that there's excitement about this Droid from some developers - I'm ordering this afternoon for my wife & me, we'll get overnight shipping as well I guess. Looking forward to it, let me know where to donate when the time comes.

    Sorry if I haven't been paying much attention, but does the D3 have an unlocked bootloader?
