Motorola Droid 3 videos show early
Motorola's Droid 3 has popped up through a set of leaked Motorola tutorial videos (below). The clips confirm that it will have the new Blur interface from the Droid X2, although it's not sure if it will ship with Android 2.3. An eight-megapixel camera with 1080p recording is also very conspicuous in the PhonePads discovery along with the newly expanded five-row QWERTY keyboard.
Inside, the Droid 3 is substantially different than the Droid X2 and packs a TI OMAP 4430 chip instead of the X2's NVIDIA Tegra 2, although both have 540x960 screens. An HDMI output is new and makes clear that HD video out will be a staple feature. The third-generation phone's design is closely related to that of the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global with largely the same gradual "chin" that itself was a spin on the 2009 original.
The Droid 3 is expected to come to Verizon soon and may be available within a matter of weeks. It's expected to cost $200 on a contract.
