Motorola Droid 3 Preview

Brighthand was sent a Motorola Droid 3 so we can write a review on it. While I won’t be taking this on, I did get to spend a short time with this cutting-edge Android smartphone while I snapped a few pictures and took some video. I’d like to share a few of my thoughts about this device, based on this brief experience.

I was happy to get a chance to try out the Droid 3 (however briefly) because the original Droid was my primary smartphone for many months last year. I liked it, but I could also see room for improvement. Motorola has included just about all the enhancements I wanted.

The most obvious of these is a larger display. This is a 4-inch qHD touchscreen, up from the 3.7-inch WVGA display in the first two models in this series.

And there’s now a better keyboard. The Droid 3 sports five rows of keys, including a set dedicated to numbers.

Thanks to the dual-core processor, performance on this model is sweet. I had just time enough with this handset to perform my favorite stress test: I tried some Flash video, which worked beautifully.

The downside of the various hardware improvements is size. This is a bulky smartphone — it’s roughly as big as my original Droid is when it was in its protective case.

There wasn’t time for any more testing, as I needed to box the Motorola Droid 3 up and send it off to Adama D. Brown, who will be writing the full review. Keep an eye on Brighthand in the coming days for his thoughts on this cutting-edge smartphone.
