The Motorola Droid 3 requires an extensive look, as the handset is Verizon bound on July 7th. However, do not get too excited, as it seems as though the low RAM has a few affects on the recent benchmarks carried out. The handset will be known as the Milestone 3 for the international version, and that too is expected to carry the same hardware.
Just over a week ago we supplied details that the Droid Bionic is a handset that is more desired, but the proof will come in the sales. The specs, which include hardware such as a 4-inch screen, 8-megapixel camera and a dual-core processor seems to be pretty impressive. However, it is that 512MB of RAM that will be its Achilles heel.
Another feature that could go against Motorola’s upcoming handset is the lack of 4G LTE, which many of the new smartphones coming to market will have. Although, the most anticipated handset of 2011 will not, and that is the iPhone 5 or 4S — still uncertain what Apple will decide to call it yet.
Droid Life has learned from XDA.cn that the Droid 3/Milstone 3 will share something in common with a couple of other Motorola handsets, and that is a pentile screen. Overall it seems as though the Droid 3 will disappoint many, and you do not have too long to help prove us wrong.
One thing we do know, this is no way going to put up much of a fight against the Samsung Galaxy S II, which still looks to be the best Android handset on the market.
