Default New Verizon Droid 3: Now With Less LTE...

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Rumors of the Motorola Droid 3 have been floating around for a while now, and while pictures have been nice, what's been lacking is confirmation on spec details. Now, thanks to a reliable tipster with a history of providing us with confirmed information, we can give you some of that highly desired confirmation."</em></p><p><img height="326" src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="500" /></p><p>The rumors continue to swirl but it looks like a few more concrete details have emerged about the next&nbsp;iteration&nbsp;of the famed Droid. It looks as if the keyboard has finally been updated to a full five row layout giving us quick access to those oft difficult to find numbers. Along with the keyboard the device will be sporting a 4-inch qHD screen, a dual core CPU, and a front facing camera. One thing&nbsp;curiously&nbsp;missing is support for Verizon's fancy new LTE network. Hopefully it just isn't enabled yet via software unlike some Motorola devices *coughXOOMcough*. Either way this device looks to be quite the upgrade over the current Droid 2 LTE or not. Is this the Droid you're looking for?</p>

Default Sounds Good To Me!

I think this is smart. I think there is good reason the Dinc2, Dx2, and D3 are all 3G devices. LTE is just too new basically. Battery life is worse, there have been major connectivity issues (even with 3G connectivity on the Tbolt), coverage is poor compared to 3G, and most people have no need for more bandwidth on their phone.

I wonder if this comes with Android 2.3.4 - supposedly the first version with battery life fixes for dual-core CPU's?

I think moving to qHD is smart! I hope it doesn't introduce app compatibility problems.
