    Here are some more leaked pics of the Motorola Droid 3. They are very blurry, but they still show off the nice keyboard and thinner design of the new Droid, internal codename "Solano". Nothing really new is known on the phone's specs, but we can still ponder over the pics. Sound off in the forums if the Droid 3 is one you are considering waiting for.

    Looks good. It looks to have the keyboard of my D2G which is a big improvement over my old D1.

    The dedicated numbers should be a welcomed addition.

    Looks like this might have a larger screen than the previous two Droids (3.7). the keyboard has 5 rows of buttons, suggesting a wider area for the buttons to fit. plus, it doesnt have the same space at the bottom of the 'top' part of the phone, it appears to be smaller. Possibly a 4.0 inch screen????? if so, this would be my dream phone (if it come with a tegra2) dancedroid

    Well... considering this is likely a 3G phone, there is a chance I ditch my old D1 to use this going forward until my contract is up. Unlimited data is too valuable to pass up, and my contract won't fully expire until next March, so even though I am due for an upgrade in September, I might not use it.

    Nice looking phone overall no doubt!

    I'll probably jump onto the Bionic myself for a few reasons:
    1. I've been using a Droid 1 since its launch date and I find that I rarely use the physical keyboard. If this phone were coming out at the same time as the Bionic, then I would give it strong consideration which leads me to the next point.
    2. I'm very eager to jump to a phone with superior hardware and June is still painfully distant, now if Moto were to release a date on this thing that is within a month or so of the Bionic, I could be persuaded to wait.
    3. Why a phisical keyboard? If this thing had even had a black and white LCD touchscreen side-out "keyboard" then.. wow...

    Is the D2 locked or unlocked? If it is locked then I wouldn't bet on the D3 being unlocked. Actually, I don't care at all. This is likely the phone that will replace my Droid.

    I kind of hope it is 3G only. I got in on that crazy Verizon promotion where my plan is only like $68 a month. If I switched to 4G I would probably lose that.

    Because some of us still want a physical keyboard. Quit complaining. The majority of phones don't have physical keyboards, so you have many more to choose from than those of us who want a physical keyboard.

    A physical keyboard is a MUST for me. I use it all the time.

    I still like the separation of keys in the Merge though.

    I see a Micro USB and Micro HDMI on the side. I really like it. I'm still fine with 3G. Seeing it's thin size it will 100% be 3G.

    At the time I bought my Droid the only other Android VZW phone worth 1/2 a darn was the Eris. Personally I wasn't seeking a physical keyboard, it just happened to have one. I liked the fact it had it but after ~1.5 or so years of using the phone I also found I personally don't use the keyboard much at all. This is not at all to put down the idea of having a physical keyboard as some such as yourself likes having one.

    Rhe one thing that generally keeps me from using the slide out keyboard on my Droid 1 is the fact when you use it you don't have the autosuggest active on any part of the phone. In that respect I feel it's slower than a physical keyboard. The thing I like about it though is it frees up a ton of screen real-estate.

    My thoughts on an LCD slideout was mostly based on the early renderings of the "solano" phone. It is a neat concept that has a lot of flexibility.
