Droid 3 by Motorola for Verizon
I have reviewed a number of Motorola Droid SmartPhones since the first one. I love the “DROID” notification sound. It makes me feel part of the outer limits of space. They are all Android phones. Along with evoking special memories the Droid series from Motorola is a solid product line with plenty of capability. The Droid 3 tested here was provided by Verizon.

The Droid 3 has an interesting two part case and feels solid when handled. The 5.9 oz weight is not too hefty for most users. The reason for a somewhat larger case (2.5(w) x 4.9(h) x 0.5 (d) inches) is the larger 4 inch screen size as well as to accommodate the 5-row slide-out QWERTY Keyboard. Using the ANDROID 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform, a Dual-core 1GHz Processor, 4” qHD display with more pixels, 1080p video capture with the front (?MP) and rear facing (8MP) cameras the Droid 3 is well equipped for most snapshots. Also included are Auto–focus, Touch–to–focus, Face recognition, and Panoramic modes as well as the usual options. The Droid 3 has 16 GB memory onboard with the ability to add a 32 GB memory card (card not included) See all Specs in detail by CLICKING HERE.
I am not a great typist but those who have the talent will love the Qwerty slider keyboard and its bumpy keys.
The Droid 3 is one of many new Smartphones that have more capability than most of us will ever need. On the other hand you never know what you will need in a pinch. A number of friends, who use phones similar to the Droid 3, swear they hardly ever use their computers, cameras, music players, or other items that we all depended upon not so long ago. I am a believer. During these tests my cameras, Netbook, iPod, and were on vacation. I now am using my desktop computer to write this article, organize and size photos taken with the Droid 3 and send them to my Flickr account. To view photos taken with the Droid 3 CLICK HERE. In other words the work that requires large screen workspace and the ability to build and shape this article. I know I could do most of this using the Droid 3 and other phones but I find a small screen too little for the final touches.
If you are looking for your next Phone take a good look at the Motorola Droid 3 by Verizon. You may find that is almost all you need to do most every electronic task that comes your way.
