    With rumors suggesting the release of the Motorola Droid 3 is just months away now we think it's time to start talking DROID 3!

    Who's waiting for this bad boy? dancedroid

    Months away? More like weeks away. The rumor for quite some time has been a June release, and now more than one extremely reliable user on Howard Forums (who are always dead on with Motorola devices) has confirmed in the past day that it's due to be released next month.

    Maybe you see no point in bothering with it, but others see things quite differently. Would LTE be nice? Sure it would, but I need a global phone more than I need LTE. And since this is supposed to be global, when adding the specs it has and the improved keyboard, I'm all over it. There are also still a lot of kinks to work out with LTE in addition to it not being available everywhere. By the time the network and the technology matures, perhaps I won't need a GSM capable phone (or perhaps there will be more LTE networks deployed around the world, potentially making a LTE phone a global phone). But for the upcoming while, this is exactly what I need and want.

    I'm totally getting this phone. Be a nice fathers day present :D

    I've rocked the D1 for all its worth since a week after launch. Its been good to me. The D2 wasn't enough of an "upgrade" to worry about, but this, this is truely an upgrade!!! And I couldn't care less about LTE right now. Can't wait!!!!!!!

    The D3 is definitely at the top of my list when I finally use this upgrade that's burning a hole in my pocket.

    Yeah, the more I think about it the more I see this as a worthy upgrade from my OG. I live in East Texas so I don't have LTE and probably won't for AT LEAST a year. By the time it gets here I'll be able to get an LTE device. Ready for this one...

    Those "leaked" specs are nothing new. It's funny how sites are just now starting to report them when we've known about them since February/March. But for some reason this thread doesn't have any of the specs listed (several threads in the news section do), so it will be helpful for some who aren't familiar with the device to see that.

    Gonna be a great phone -- wish I could get it...

    I have been skeptical about the timing of this release. I am now becoming more hopeful that it will come out before the Fourth. If this phone had 4G LTE I would jump all over it and probably keep it til the keys start to fall out. I would use my NE2 on it now, anyway, without 4G -- it's shaping up to be a great phone overall -- IF I knew I could get its 4G successor, when it comes out probably next summer, at the NE2 price. But that ain't gonna happen. So...

    I will, very reluctantly, have to pass on the D3. I don't think I could stand knowing, a year from now or so, that 4G LTE was available on a 5-row qwerty slide Android phone with super features and I was still stuck in 3G. I will save my NE2 for my real dream phone with 4G -- and a 4.7" display! (Dream on.)

    I need 4G and and a real full qwerty KB. So, I have no choice but to wait for the next step in the Moto Droid line which must -- at long last -- have all the features I will need to be able to keep a phone for a while... Maybe... even... -- Dare I say it? -- could HTC's announcement last night that it is unlocking its bootloaders force Motorola to follow suit?

    I am. Still have one of the first Droid 1 models and, while it has been flawless, I'd like a number row and a bigger screen.

    Anyone with an idea when this is coming out??
