Ah yes, the elusive QWERTY superphone that it is. The original Motorola Droid is considered by many to be the Android phone that ignited technolust in the hearts of mobile tech lovers worldwide. Thankfully, it is finally looking like Verizon is readying the official release of the highly sought after Motorola Droid 3.
The Motorola Droid 3 has just appeared in Verizon’s device management system, and confirms a few things, but still very little in the way of what we are looking for. While the above image doesn’t offer us a specific time frame or date, it does confirm what the rumor mill has been saying all along – there is a Motorola Droid 3, and it is coming.
More importantly, we still don’t know if it’s going to be a TI OMAP 4430 (fast), or a Nvidia Tegra 2 (also fast), but it does confirm that we aren’t crazy! Seeing the Motorola Droid 3 listed in Verizon’s internal system means that they are preparing their loyal minions for what we hope is a substantial coming out party.
We’ve all seen a few pictures of this beast of a phone, and it looks to be the QWERTY phone to get in 2011. However, it’s unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your opinion – looking like it won’t be receiving support for LTE this time around. Still, reasonable tipsters we’re in touch with have assured us that it will be receiving a substantially improved 8MP camera that will be able to do your action-packed, night-time escapades justice, and a higher resolution qHD display with a resolution of 960×540, at 4 inches. Additionally, we know it will be receiving a radically upgraded keyboard, with five dedicated rows of QWERTY goodness.
It’s looking like it will be released sometime in June, and most likely towards the end of it.
