If you are a Verizon customer or looking to join the network at some point this year, most of the talk is reserved for the highly anticipated Droid Bionic. One handset that has seemingly slipped under the radar is the upcoming Motorola Droid 3, but you’ll be pleased to hear that we have some excellent new information for you.
That information comes in the form of three brand new official videos for the unannounced handset that have been leaked online by PhonePads. The videos appear to be upcoming tutorial videos showing users how to navigate around certain aspects of the device.
We’re not sure how PhonePads managed to get their hands on these, but we’re thankful they did. It looks like the videos will be released by Motorola at some point, but strangely – we still have no indication when the handset will be out.
The videos show guides on the slide-out QWERTY keyboard and also using the virtual keyboard, while another video shows how to access your contacts and groups more effectively. Additional details reveal the handset will be equipped with a 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording and also an HDMI-out port.
It looks like it will also run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but we still can’t help but feel that the Droid 3 is going to less popular with consumers compared to other handsets on Verizon. If consumers had to choose between the Droid 3 and Droid Bionic, we think the Bionic would be the standout favorite everytime.
Perhaps some more solid details on the Droid 3 such as a full tech specs sheet would change a few users minds about picking one up, but at the moment the Droid Bionic remains the top handset to buy this Summer. Apple may have a thing to say about that with a possible iPhone 5 reveal, Android purists will disagree.
