The Motorola Droid and the rest of the Droid family have always had a special place in the hearts of many Android users. Perhaps it is because the original Droid was the first "premium" Android device, or because the line has consistently included some of the best Android smartphones. Either way, we now have a sneak peak at the Droid 3 thanks to a leaked walkthrough video.
There are quite a few things to be gleaned from the video. First, the device will retain the brick-like qualities that users either love or hate. More importantly though, it appears the device will have an 8MP camera with flash and 1080p video recording, the standard QWERTY keyboard, and HDMI out via miniHDMI. We still do not know if the device will have a Tegra 2 or if the display will boast a qHD resolution; however, based on previous rumors and other Motorola phones, those specs seem likely.
Surprisingly enough, the leaked video giving an overview of the new device is not another blurrycam piece. It is instead what appears to be an official video from Motorola made to walk new users through their device. If you want to see more very clear shots of this brick in action, you can check out the video below the break, assuming it hasn't become a victim of a copyright claim.
As you can see in the video, the Droid 3 runs a new version of Motoblur, Motorola's custom Android skin. Although most of us dislike manufacturer skins, the updated release will hopefully bring faster speeds and more features. It also means that this device will probably run a recent version of Android, hopefully Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Even though it seems like there is a new Android device every day, usually there is something about each device that makes it a little different. In the case of the Droid 3, what sets it apart is the title of successor to the Droid name and the inclusion of a (hopefully improved) physical keyboard, which most devices now lack.[Mashable]
