Verizon Wireless could be preparing to launch the third version of its popular DROID smartphone on July 14th. Android enthusiast blog Droid Attic posted what it claims to be a screenshot of an internal Best Buy inventory system. The image clearly shows an in-stock date of July 13th for the DROID 3, and the blog notes that the phone should launch one day later on the 14th. Motorola’s DROID 3 is already official in China as the Milestone 3, so it’s clearly only a matter of time before Verizon makes an announcement. And if the July 14th launch date is accurate, that announcement will likely come some time next week. Spec highlights include a 4-inch qHD display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture support, 16GB of internal storage and a slide-out QWERTY keypad.
