Motorola Droid 3 gets manhandled on camera, gives away its secrets

Not content with merely showing its many features on video, the Motorola Droid 3 just submitted itself to a full-body pat down from a Chinese blogger. The Chinese website XNA.cn got their hands on a Motorola Droid 3 this morning (known as the Milestone 3 overseas) and published everything you could ever want to know about the device. Including the following specifications:

  • Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread
  • 1Ghz dual-core OMAP 4430 processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4-inch qHD screen
  • 8 MP back-facing camera and VGA front-facing camera
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • HDMI out
  • 1080p video recording
  • 1500 mAh battery

As seen in the pictures below, the phone will launch with a new version of MotoBlur (or whatever we’re calling it now). This is both pro and a con, depending on who you ask. Thankfully, you can expect the hacking community to root this device faster than you can say CyanogenMod.

It’s hard to believe the Motorola Droid was released almost two years ago. And here we are today, buzzing over leaked photos of the Droid 3 like bees on a flower. If anything, this tells you how much the Android world changes in just a year and a half. Today’s cutting edge Android phone is next year’s free, low-end one.

With these specs in tow, the Droid 3 is starting to look like a worthy successor to its forefathers. But will it be able to win our hearts and minds against other phones like the HTC Sensation 4G or Samsung Galaxy S II? We’ll see.

    Ugh, Motoblur needs to go away. Can’t we have another vanilla Android Motorola Droid like the original?

    It is pathetic that the Droid 3 is not a 4G device. Guess I will wait for the Droid 4?

      motoblur + no 4G

    How is it possible that a device releasing this year has such a low amount of memory?

  • http://Website TeKNoTroNiK

    Just another failure the the Droid X2.. Think how many people would want these devices. I am waiting to get my HTC Thunderbolt that I won off of eBay and I will wait to use my upgrade when there is a 4″ qHD device with a slide out keyboard and dual core with atleast 768 mb of system memory! BASTARDS!

      Don’t forget the 4G.. with a battery that can get me through the day with heavy use..

    It’s too bad phones aren’t customizable like laptops. I bet a lot of people would be willing to pay a little more to get exactly what they want.

      I forget where I saw it but there was some company doing something similar to that reported last year. That would be the greatest thing ever, choose from technology that is currently release and design your own phone.I would +10000 that

    Only 512MB? Meh. I don’t care for Motoblur(it actually looks pretty cool in these pics), but having such low RAM is unacceptable.

    Unfortunately, I just can’t get another phone that doesn’t have Super Amoled(or Plus). Other screens just look so bland now. :(

    qHD + Super Amoled Plus = Win.

    This has a lower spec than the Atrix, what is Motorola thinking.

    That’s a real shame as I hear that omap 4 chip is really something but with less ram than the Atrix and the SGSII and the fuzzy screen Motorola have I can’t see this as an option.

    Maybe Motorola is content with producing shop display fillers like Sonyericsson rather than iPhone killers.

    Good thing samsung doesn’t think that way.

    Oh no, there’s no 4g support!!!

    And exactly who cares? There won’t be any infra structure support outside of the largest cities for years to come, by then we have a new phone for sure..
