Motorola unveils Milestone 3 (DROID 3) in China

This increasing number of leaks over the past few weeks were a dead giveaway that Motorola had a new flagship Android phone ready to be outed, and today the company took the wraps off its third-generation headlining act: the Milestone 3. Here in the U.S., we know the Milestones better as “DROIDs,” and we’re very confident that Motorola’s latest superphone will get Verizon Wireless CMO Marni Warden’s DROID stamp of approval soon enough. In the meantime, we get to sit half way around the world and admire this sleek smartphone from afar. Beneath the phone’s familiar facade lies a dual-core processor, a 4-inch qHD display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture support, 16GB of internal storage and, of course, a slide-out QWERTY keypad. The Milestone 3 will launch in the third quarter in China, and availability elsewhere has not yet been announced. Motorola’s full press release follows below. More →

Motorola DROID 3 spotted again

Motorola DROID 3 spotted again

We’ve seen plenty of leaked shots of the DROID 3 (also known as the Milestone 3 in Europe), but now you can get a glimpse of the clearest one yet. The phone first surfaced in March, again in April, and then the specs were leaked in May. The bad news is that it’s becoming more and more clear that the phone will be nearly identical in looks to the DROID 2. The good news is there’s decent spec boost. The DROID 3 should sport a 4-inch display with 960 x 540 qHD resolution, a dual-core processor, HDMI-out, and an 8-megapixel camera that’s presumably capable of recording HD video. Early rumors suggested a June launch on Verizon Wireless, so hopefully we’ll hear more in the coming weeks. More →
