Review: Motorola Droid 3
As mentioned earlier, there are 60 apps preloaded on the Droid 3, many of them Verizon and Google's own software/services. Some of the stand-outs include Amazon's Kindle app, BlockBuster, Golf, MotoPrint (lets you print via Bluetooth to compatible printers), and QuickOffice.
The Droid 3's Bluetooth radio connects to phones, headsets, PCs, and speakers. I had no trouble pairing it with half a dozen different pieces of equipment. Phone calls placed through mono headsets sounded terrible. The same goes for music played through Bluetooth stereo speakers. Sending files between phones and PCs, however, wasn't a problem, and I was able to connect the phone to my car and see my address book just fine.
The Droid 3 has a large digital clock that is easily seen when the power/lock key is pressed. Reading the time outdoors, though, can be hit or miss. The Droid 3 also has a clock widget for use on the home screen panels. This widget is widely customizable, but the lock screen clock is not.

The Droid 3 includes both Google Maps and VZNavigator. Both are capable applications at providing voice-guided driving directions. The latest version of Google Maps supports 3D city views (in select cities) and map caching for offline use. VZNavigator doesn't do that, and costs $10 per month to use. VZNavigator's GPS performance is a little bit better and more accurate in my experience.
