Verizon Wireless is now selling the Motorola Droid 3 via its web site. The Droid 3 is a follow-up to the Droid and Droid 2, and sports the same sideways slider design of its predecessors. The Droid 3 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and includes a 4-inch qHD display and an 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, flash, and full 1080p HD video capture. The Droid 3 offers a five-row keyboard, including a row just for numbers. It includes support for Verizon's EVDO 3G network, and has Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and GPS radios, and is a world phone, supporting the 3G networks of select foreign countries. Other features include a 1GHz dual-core processor, user-facing camera for video chat, Skype, DLNA, and directional audio capture when shooting video to reduce background noise. The Droid 3 costs $199.99 with a new two-year contract.

It does show it has a camera key but that is incorrect info. It does not as everyone knows already.

Bootloader?

Can anyone confirm bootloader status? If it's unlocked, this is my next phone.
You are aware it is NOT 4G right? You'll be under a 2yr contract and it will be 2013 and you will still be carrying around a 3G smartphone.
...
It's locked. Motorola said starting towards the end of 2011 they would ship unlock, so more then likely they will issue an update that will unlock it.

no physical camera button! :-(

One of my favorite things about the OG Droid and Droid 2 (and Droid X) are the physical, two-stage camera buttons that make it much easier to focus, line up your shot, and hold the phone steady while using the camera. I hate poking the screen to take a picture, especially because you cannot control focus and then have to wait while the camera focuses and takes the pic first, this is a huge step down in my opinion and without that and 4G I'll wait for the Droid 4, which I hope has both.
No physical camera button seems to be the trend now. Now the specs say it records in 1080P but it never gives the resolution on the front camera. I guess it must be a VGA one.

No 4G. Big Fail.

Why build a 4G network if you aren't going to sell 4G phones?
Eapecially considering the first 3 4G smartohones are damn near identical spec wise, ALL of them being 4.3in all touchscreen phomes. Vzn refuses to offer choice.
...
Yeah I've been waiting for VZW to come out with a 4G Android and this is disappointing that a newly released phone only has 3G.
...
For you personally, it may be a fail. Some of us don't need 4G, and some of us won't have access to it anytime soon. Other specs look pretty slick, and as long as I can put a custom ROM on it to remove Blur, it will suit my needs pretty well.
