DROID3 Added to DroidDoes.com, Should Be Available Online Any Minute Now (Updated)

The DROID3 should be going on-sale through Verizon’s website any minute now, but until that happens, you can head over to DroidDoes.com and check out the entire overview of the device.  There aren’t many surprises, however I will say that I’m really starting to warm up to it as it’s gotten closer to this July 7 launch day.  That keyboard looks sharp, it has a 4″ screen, is super thin for a slideout, and I’m dying to get my hands on an OMAP processor to see how it can compete with the Tegra 2.

Oh, and you can order it through *611 now if you can’t wait for the website to make it available.  A number of our readers started placing orders for theirs earlier this afternoon.  Yep, the next version of our favorite phone is finally here.  

Here it is again, but no luck on the device page (Cheers 0mie!):

Update:  Looks like it finally went on sale last night around 1AM Pacific.

More info.  And here is the Buy link.

    I hope no one ordered it over the phone. It would’ve cost me $199.99 plus shipping via customer service. I checked the website before I confirmed the order over the phone and the price for me on there was $149.99. I called them back to ask why it was $50 cheaper online and the customer service agent said maybe that was a web only special and I would have to order it from there. I don’t understand why the same company sells it for two different prices…

  • lol thisismyname

    Hot damn, that might be the most irritating website I’ve visited all day…

  • Foont1966

    I would like to express my passion for your kindness for men and women who should have guidance on that situation. Your special dedication to passing the solution all around became extremely beneficial and have always made those just like me to get to their aims. Your invaluable report can mean a great deal a person like me and substantially more to my fellow workers. Best wishes; from each one of us.

    I refreshed this thread a hundred times last night probably… Finally, Droid3 Does Me tomorrow!!
    ($199.00+$12 s/h)

  • I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

  • My husband and i have been very joyous when Jordan could carry out his web research via the precious recommendations he gained through the site. It’s not at all simplistic just to be offering methods which usually people might have been trying to sell. And we grasp we have got the writer to appreciate for that. All of the illustrations you made, the straightforward website menu, the friendships you will make it easier to promote – it is everything spectacular, and it is aiding our son in addition to us understand that theme is exciting, and that’s exceptionally fundamental. Many thanks for all the pieces!

  • I thought it was going to be a 1.2Ghz processor?

  • Sapan Dhora

    Ordered the Extended battery with it. Lets see how long it really lasts.

  • Eyeymnepo

    verizon online price 149.99 NICE!!!

  • Moto_AgentXT59

    The phone is fast..the new blur makes it snappy even with 512MB Ram..No stuttering in the audio like the X2, GB adds alot of performance to it as well..If you look closely to the screen at some corners youll see the pentile effect..but other wise its crisp, clear and very bright. 

  • Moto_AgentXT59

    Love this phone..but the pentile display is killing it & whats worse is that the bionic will have a 4.5 inch pentile matrix qhd display. 

    • 4.5″ pentile will only make it more noticeable on the Bionic. I’m praying on the 4.0″ making it less noticeable on this phone.

      • Moto_AgentXT59

        its not bad on this one..but is noticeable when you have a good look at it..the bionic may take a major hit 

  • Sapan Dhora

    Online ordering process is fucked up. I want to order on a non contract price even though I have a discount and it won’t let me.

    The Jokers on the phone have no idea wtf a droid3 is.

    Does it come in black and grey color? The droiddoes website has the front side grey and i personally think it looks better than the old fashioned black.

    So, there’s no mention of Webtop functionality/compatibility. Does anyone know if that’s definitely confirmed? Kellex?

    Does this have Gorilla Glass like the last 2 Droids? I’m still rockin my OG droid and I have no desire to get a 4g phone. It’s not in my area yet and I doubt it will be anytime soon. For what I want out of a phone, this is perfect.

    Quit complaining about no 4g or not enough ram. There’s a phone for everyone so keep it to yourself.

    I’m going through the online site, and it says it has to remove my unlimited data plan because it’s “not compatible with my phone.” Looks like I’m going to hold off! I don’t want to lose my unlimited data!

    • Anonymous

      Huh?  I ordered online and unlimited data was the default choice.

      • Anonymous

        I currently have an enV Touch. Apparently, on Monday I added the unlimited data plan to my account because I knew it was going away today. Well apparently because I’m switching from a feature phone to a smartphone, the website is automatically saying I need to sign up for a data package (even though it does list me as having the unlimited data plan already… but the unlimited data plan is listed under in a section title “Features We Needed To Remove (Because they’re incompatible with your phones or plan)”. I guess, I can’t get it through the site… time to try customer service.

        • Anonymous

          Good luck with customer service!  D-L has been reporting that only unlimited “smartphone” data plans would be grandfathered.  That is specifically why I got my Fiancee off her Nokia Twist and put her on my old Blackberry last night.  When I placed my order for her D3, this morning, the data plan defaulted to unlimited.

          • Anonymous

            So the length explanation in the Verizon email to indirect retailers was incorrect? Here’s the link to that email: http://www.androidcentral.com/verizons-new-data-plans-broken-down-complete-detail

            According to that email “EXISTING CUSTOMERS- That current have the unlimited
            data WILL BE ABLE TO UPGRADE AND KEEP the unlimited data feature (No
            known end date on this as of this moment).” That’s the second bullet point… and the all caps is theirs. Apparently that’s not the case if you have a feature phone and want to change to a smartphone… even though they say you can do that further down in the email.

  • Formulanerd

    ugh, it was showing $119 for me, but it’s $149 in cart.

    he said “we have um in stock” walked me through the purchasing details, and said I should have it on by Monday.

    $240.00 total, using my upgrade and new 2-year contract renewal.

  • Casey Puyleart

    Really wanting to see one of these in person.  Been waiting a long time for this one to come out to give the dual-core a test (I’m a heavy keyboard user with business emails while mobile).  But if that pentile screen is as bad as the X2…I’ll be holding out for something else.

  • James_Ever

    I called at 9:30 central and they kept telling me that normal business ours are from 6am to 11pm eastern. That’s all I got for over an hour. Then tried the website, finally found the device and after clicking on it, the page is unavailable. Screw it I’ll set my alarm for 5am central to beat the onslot of traffic the longer I wait.

  • 第一次来 踩踩

  • garrett sullivan

    I’m sorry. The Bionic is a few months too late. This looks like it could be lovely, but as the OG was the super phone to beat all super phones, this came out at a time where they couldn’t add anything new to truly impress me. All I think when I say I want this phone is “But Ice Cream Sandwich will be out in 6 months with a Nexus.” And Ice Cream Sandwich is going to be a big change, why would i sign a two year contract with such a big exciting future just six months out.

  • Ice2097

    Have we found out for sure how much ram this has? I remember a rumor of it only being 512mb, but I don’t know if this was ever confirmed…

      Lol, good one! This IS the Droid I am looking for!:P

      • tjhrulz

        I have the OG droid and the droid 2, I figured I would get this device for a while to keep the chain going, but it was such a let down hardly any RAM no 4G crappy pentile screen (Unless this one is less crappy) and no nfc chip. I will overlook that all if this is unlocked though.

        • Mr. Joe

          It has as much RAM as the rest of the other phones.  To my knowledge only the ATRIX has 1GB of RAM and that is for that laptop dock.

          The HTC phones (even the almighty Sensation) has that 768MB of RAM.  But something tells me that’s to keep up with Sense.

          So 512MB is well standard for Android.  I’d hardly call it low.

          • Mr. Joe

            Maybe I should correct myself.

            The EVO 3D seems to have a 1GB of RAM.  Though I wonder if that’s for all that 3D it does.

          • tjhrulz

            But we should do better than that, and Motoblur will consume memory as well so then they should have that much, if its in tablets now it will be in phones soon.

          • Anonymous

            C’mon MR Joe, you know that 512MB of Ram is low and slow.  Any decent device now should should have atleast 768MB of RAM or more.  What makes the TBolt so fast is the 768MB of RAM optimizized with it’s processor.

            The D3 is average a best IMHO, Not to much marketing or TV Commercials around this device either. just goes to show you what Verizon/Moto thought about this device. The Bionic will be all over the place and hopefully Moto will deliver a device thats worthy of the Droid brand likethe OG did.
