Motorola DROID3 Accessories Start Making Appearances

The DROID3 doesn’t have many secrets left after a string of appearances on benchmark sites and in overseas reviews, but accessories were still one thing we had yet to really see – until today that is.  Qmadix, a major player in the accessory game, dropped this first snap-on case for the D3 and are about ready to unveil a bunch more.  We don’t get any extra details about the device, but that’s fine since we already know almost everything about it including specs.  We are hoping this means we’ll still see the device on July 7 though, along with those new tiered data plans that have been the talk of the week.

Oh, and as far as we can tell, that is not the new DROID Red Eye – it looks like they grabbed the OG’s and tossed in on their mock-up.

Cheers Steve!

    Word is July 11 from Howard forum

    • James_Ever

      They said that’s a possible date. Still leaning for the most part to July 7th. What else would they have to tempt new customers that don’t have knowledge about their tiered data plans with…

    I’m gonna fall over when the announcement becomes official that this thing is only going to be running Froyo.

    Failed phone when you got sgs2, evo 3d, LG tegra phones, and rumored nexus  phone coming out. Please let me know when MOTO will make a worth while phone or when they go down along with kellogs corn pops as some of the brands that I won’t see in the year 2012.

    • EC8CH

      holy $h!t

      Take another look at the specs jackass.

  • lottoo

    i dont get why people care about the droid eye so much.. i reboot my phone MAYBE once a month, not even. you barely see it and its not like you go around rebooting your phone to show off.. stupid

    • FailedMOTO

      I thought it was cool about 2 years ago when I got the OG droid

      • ravenlore

        I’m going to think it’s really f’ing cool when I get my first ‘droid-this one.

    • Bob

      You should absolutely reboot your phone more often then that, it’s really not good for electronics to run continuously for that long. I bet you would see much better performance if you rebooted like every other day. It seriously takes like 30 seconds.

  • DShizzel

    Alls I want to know is: will my D2 car dock still work with the D3?  How about will it take the same battery as the D1 and D2?

    • ek38112

      D1 used a “BP6X” battery. D3 uses a “BF5X” battery.

      No lte

      Certainly doesn’t look like it.  You’ll have to wait for the Bionic.

  • t_jr3

    With this maybe coming out on the 7th then to purchase it on that day will you have to choose a tiered data plan?

    • Anonymous

      if you are already on verizon and have unlimited data than no

  • nessa

    maybe tomorrow or next thusday! weeee

    How come it has the OG Droid’s eye?

    • Anonymous

      Did you read the whole article? or did you just look at the picture and comment right away. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

        Yeah my bad. It happens.

    So tempting, but the 512mb of RAM is the only thing holding me back. I’m not a big fan of Terga 2 phones, and seeing as both the Galaxy S II and this beat the snot out of the Atrix, the Bionic is looking less and less appealing, 4G or not.

    The question now is: Is the RAM cut worth it to have a phone with a keyboard and Motorola’s build quality that is definitely coming out soon, or do I wait for the Galaxy S II which doesn’t even have an approximate release date or really any details at all?

    Arrrg, just want to upgrade soon! My OG is showing its age big-time.

    • James_Ever

      The chip is TI OMAP 4 not Tegra 2. I want them to show the qwerty keyboard again so I know that it will have that blue accents on the keyboard. Come on Moto get at least one thing right and pre release this before the sheer hell of tiered data takes over every conversation for the next six months.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=716789798 Lonnie Kerchief

        If it releases on the 7th or within a week of that, you can likely blame Verizon, not Motorola, for the release date after the 7th.

        Hopefully they bumped the RAM up too, no excuse for 512mb now.

    • Anonymous

      bionic doesnt have tegra 2 either

  • Bob

    Also, sorry if this has been confirmed, but is the D3 going to have gorilla glass? Please say yes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

      All of Motorola’s other Droid phones have had it so I would assume yes.

  • Bob

    Did anyone go to the site and read the description? “Snap-On allows for easy access to the kickstand”. Um…excuse me lol?

    The question is D3, Bionic, Of Galaxy SII….

    There is not a more important question in the history of mankind…

    • Amenemhat1

      Agreed. I think I am leaning towards the Koreans…. come on Samsung!

    • Anonymous

      Then really, the question is 4G or no 4G?

      • http://twitter.com/Chasemanhattan3 Chase Chick

        I thought Bionic was supposed to be LTE for sure??

        • Anonymous

          The Bionic will, the other 2 are not getting LTE

          • MicroNix

            The Bionic what?  Oh, you mean that piece of vaporware that Motorola once spoke about?  Maybe by 2050 and after its 40th revision it will see the light of day.

          • Anonymous

            You have a short memory and complete lack of patience.

          • MicroNix

            Absolutely.  Now that my D1 hardware bit the dust, add in some bitterness there too.

          • Anonymous

            Maybe you dropped it one too many times.  Mine is still going strong.

        • Anonymous

          Yes, which means if you want 4G, the Bionic may be your only choice. We’ll see what happens with the SGS II

  • Ian Wilson

    I think the reason why Motorola won’t give out any concrete dates is because they realize how unreliable they are at actually meeting them once they are there. It sucks not knowing… but not as bad as the inevitable blue balls after finding out things are delayed

    • Fd2blk78

      The real reason is so that they can drop the news that the d3 will be 4g…heard it here first folks

      • Anonymous

        I would love that if its true but im not getting my hopes up

        • Fd2blk78

          Keep the faith brother.

          • James_Ever

            With all the reliable sources saying this will not be LTE how did you come to this conclusion. Not criticizing, just curious.

          • Fd2blk78

            No official announcement as well as wishful thinking. That is all. Haha

  • Unexpected62

    this will have a car dock right?
