Review: Motorola Droid 3

Menus Calls/Contacts Messages  

The Droid 3 comes with the usual flotilla of messaging and communications applications. It offers the standard Android email, Gmail, SMS/MMS, and GTalk applications.

The Droid 3 also includes a generic mobile IM application that is compatible with AIM, Windows Live Messenger, and Yahoo IM. This catch-all IM app does a decent job of handling IM conversations, and can manage a number of convos at a time.

The Droid 3 also has a few carry-overs from Motoblur. It offers the master inbox, which catches messages from SMS, Twitter DMs, and Facebook messages all in one place. This tool is a decent way to manage direct communications for these social networking services rather than directly in those apps.

The Droid 3 also has a catch-all social networking application that helps manage status updates. It includes a home screen widget, from which you can scan through your Twitter, Facebook, and RSS feeds, as well as post your thoughts and musings. The stock Facebook and Twitter apps are not included, so if you want the full functionality that they offer, you'll have to snag them from the Android Market.
