Motorola’s DROID 3 is on sale now from Verizon.It’s the third iteration of the original DROID, the phone that kickstarted Android’s rise in 2009.
The phone is on Verizon’s website, but we still haven’t received an official announcement from the carrier or Motorola. (Usually we get at least a few day’s notice.)
Also, it’s pretty sneaky of Verizon to offer a hot new phone on the day it no longer offers unlimited data plans.
Still, if you’re looking for an Android phone that has a slide-out keyboard, this is your best (and pretty much only) bet.
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 4-inch qHD 960 x 540 resolution display
- Full slide-out keyboard
- 8 MP camera with 1080p HD video capture
- Global ready, meaning it can run on networks outside the U.S.
- $199.99 with a two-year contract
UPDATE: Verizon just posted the official announcement. You can buy the DROID 3 online now. It will be in stores July 14.
