    no this isn't what the droid 3 should have been, yes it's what you wanted to be but they technically haven't even introduced quad core processors for phones yet. So the Droid 3 should have been just what it is, with the exception of maybe LTE added in.

    Tell you what. If that comes to verizon that is what will replace my D3. The lte, 1 gig of ram, and the nfc chip would have definitely been nice on the d3 even w/o it being a quad-core device. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it. Hopefully the keyboard will just like the one on the d3 or better.
    Edit: I noticed that this articles date is april 2011. Makes me wonder how reliable it is. Seeing how motorola has moved away from tegra chips in favor of omap chips recently. IJS. Would be an awesome phone nonetheless.

    Really? 1 gig of RAM is hardly uncommon on newer high end phones. 12 MP camera NFC, and quad core (which I mentioned) OK sure but 512 mb of ram on a new high-end phone? Even the Thunderbolt hat 768 mb and that was released well before the Droid 3.

    Edit: The lack of LTE was frustrating, though you could argue that they chose between making a truly global phone aimed at businesspeople and a phone aimed more at the domestic consumer market.

    This sounds like the ultimate phone so it will be the ultimate battery hog

    Actually the new tegra 3 quad cores are rumored to have a fifth core that will run when it doesnt need the quad core awesomeness, if so this would massively improve battery life.

    You'd probably better off waiting on this:

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthr...Droid-4-quot-Maserati-quot-Pre-Release-Thread

    ..since no one has said anything about it since April. Also no pics of it have been found. The pics of it that you find on the web of it are pics of the Droid 3. Around the time it was rumored Kal-El only had 4 cores; it now has 5 cores, thus if the model was in development back in April when it was "discovered", it would have to be scrapped.

    This was just a rumor that we all would've been better off without.

    Why would they have a 5th core when they could just implement some processor management for battery saving? It makes no sense and would definitely increase the difficulty in development and implementation. This isn't a hybrid car with both gas and electric motors, they are all processors and can be individually managed by the hardware and software as they see fit to design.
    Besides, as they developed the new processors, they are finding ways to reduce the power required for them. Per core at least.

    The answer is 42.
    Oh, wait, you mean to tell me you need to know the question now?
    Well, I can't answer that.

    Well the 5th processor in Kal-El is a battery saver. While the main 4 cores are clocked at 1-2 GHz, the fifth core is clocked at only 500 MHz (which saves battery), and it is only used to run background tasks and/or tasks that don't require a lot of processor power. It essentially manages battery with a combination of hardware and software rather than just software.

    D4 is sexy. id get that becuase its a worthwhile step up from the x. something is always out better tomorrow, but you can try to watch the internals major step up. i guess a quad core would be a step up though.
