Whether you like it or not, phones are being pushed out at a ridiculous rate, and whatever you purchase today will most likely be outdated within the year. Such is the case with the recent announcement of Motorola’s DROID 4. It’s only been six months since the DROID 3 was released and Motorola has already moved on to the next big iteration, leaving consumers to wonder why there was even a DROID 3 to begin with? To add insult to injury, Verizon has just dropped the price of the DROID 3 to $99 in preparation for the DROID 4 landing.
Yes, this is disappointing news for any current DROID 3 owners, but it’s also good news for anyone looking to get a top-notch sliding QWERTY at a discount price. You will be missing out on LTE and the DROID 4’s RAZR like look, but I’m sure there are plenty of you out there that could care less as long as you’re getting a bargain. If you’re one of those people, now’s a great time to grab the DROID 3 because there’s no telling when Verizon will stamp it with an “End of Life” sticker (which I’m guessing will be soon).
Here’s what you’ll get for $99:
- A dual-core 1GHz processor
- 4’ qHD Display (960×540)
- 512 MB RAM
- 16GB on-board Storage
- Full 5 QWERTY Keyboard (dedicated row for numbers)
- World Phone Functionality (Vodafone/VZW SIM Card)
- 8MP Camera (with LED Flash)
- VGA Front Facing Camera
- 1500 mAh Lithium-ion Battery
