    I was going to title the post “BREAKING LEAK” but that didn’t sound quite right. In any case, it looks like the guys over at Android Central were able to snag a snapshot of a chart showing off the specs of Motorola’s upcoming Droid 3. While there’s not too much here we didn’t already know/guess, it’s nice to finally see it in print.

    Whereas other Droid devices are having trouble getting up to Android 2.3, this device will come with Gingerbread already pre-installed. The phone will also be yet another “world phone” or “global phone” as some like to call it, meaning you can use the phone with all those GSM networks overseas. As far as processor goes, you have a slightly out of the ordinary Texas Instruments 1GHz dual-core OMAP4. The display is a sweet 4-inch 960×540 qHD and lets just hope we’re not looking at that Pentile Matrix stuff from the Droid X2. 8MP camera on the back for shooting in 1080p and a handy front facing camera for video chat.

    With one of the best QWERTY keyboards on the market and the phone hitting that 4-inch screen sweet spot, I think this will do pretty well in Verizon’s lineup. It looks to be a great sequel from the Droid 2 in every way. What do you guys think? Anyone planning on picking one of these guys up on launch day?

    No LTE means no for me. My og droid runs everything just fine, half a second quicker loading time on apps is not worth the money without the network speed.

    Ill wait till there is a slider with lte.

    Don't care about 4G....its proving buggy. I'm getting this as a b-day present to myself.

    So this will have all that blur crap running on it? So sad. Hopefully mod-able.

    What's the disadvantage(s) of not having dual LED flash?

    What's the story on the RAM? I hear it's a better type of RAM, but less of it. So I'd like to know how effective the RAM situation is. Anyone know? I would like to be able to switch tasks a little more effectively than what's been going on with the OG, where I can MAYBE get 2 apps switching reliably without being shut down, and they must be LIGHT apps. Would really like to see that situation improve.

    Been holding on to my D1 and been waiting for this. I still believe this is Moto's answer to the DInc2.
    As long as the reviews are good after launch ill be getting it. I was going to get the X2 but with so many bad reviews I'm not sold on it.
    Two more weeks...hopefully, can't wait!

    While I can't own all of the Droid line....I like the slider keyboard. Didn't think the D2 was enough of an upgrade to worry about. But this is. Its a little bigger, better keyboard, more RAM than the D1( even though everyones complaining about it), and I like that its the dual core OMAP instead of the Tegra.

    I'm really liking this phone. However just getting a new phone after just seeing leaks isn't enough for me. I would like to wait a bit and see how it fares in real life. I was looking forward to a lot of new phones but they all seemed mildly flawed. I love my OG droid and it's still serving me well. Running GB 2.3.4 while most stock are still in 2.2, slide out keyboard and a fully unlocked bootloader. I have almost nothing to worry about except getting a phone that actually would be an upgrade to the satisfaction my droid gives me to this day. I really like this phone and I hope that if I were to get it within the week buffalo NY didn't get LTE and it had a locked bootloader. However that's my rant and I really do hope this phone is a great device.

    Same here. I love the form factor of my original droid. I use the slide-out keyboard daily. What I would like is a larger screen, more memory, a better slide-out keyboard, a faster CPU and a better camera....maybe a front facing camera as well.

    Hey...wait.....I just described the Droid 3! LOL

    4G is available where I live.....I'm just not interested in any of the current 4G phones and personally I'd like to see the 4G chipset go through a few revisions, improvements and mature a little before I worry about having it.

    It would be extra sweet if it was unlocked and vanilla Android OS....but Motorola really likes their "blur".

    After having my D2, Im really liking the size of it and the keyboard. So I would have been seriously considering this phone if it had 4G. The fact that it doesnt drops my interest to zero.

    I share your sentiments regarding 4G. It's available in my area, but the 4G radios seem to have a significant drain on the battery, so I can do without. My biggest gripes are the RAM and the fact that Blur is included. The possibility of a pentile screen also concerns me a bit, but I may still spring for this baby when it's all said and done. I'm an avid user of the slide-out keyboard, and this one looks to be a big improvement over the D1.

    A friend of mine got the Droid X2 and I wanted to check out the screen for myself.

    I have no issues with the pentile screen, it looked fantastic and better than my Droids screen.

    does "locked bootloader" mean it is not mod-able or are those two things not related? I may stick to my D1 if this isn't mod-able, I love my D1 but I don't know if would love it as much if it was stock. I've had the D1 since release day and it has served me well, best phone I ever owned.
