UPDATE: The Droid 3 has been on sale for the latter half of the day at *611. It’s up on Droiddoes.com and soon will go up on VZW.com it’s just a matter of moments now before Albert’s email gets here to say it’s official!
I guess we will find out later in the day if the July 7th rumored date for the Droid 3 was a bust. Today was supposed to be the direct ship on sale date for the Droid 3 however there has been no official word from Verizon and that rumor appears to have died down.
In other Droid 3 news though, the good folks at Droid-Life are reporting that the Droid 3 will be available for $199 on a new two year agreement. The Motorola Droid 3 will cost $459 off contract. This will also be one of the first Android phones that you can’t purchase unlimited data with. Verizon Wireless is making the shift to tiered data pricing today.
The Droid 3 seems to be a little more solid than the Droid 2 was however it isn’t on Verizon’s 4G/LTE network.
We’ll let you know if we hear something about availability.
