The Motorola Droid 3 has arrived, sort of. The new phone is now available for purchase on Verizon’s Website for $199.99 with a two-year contract or $459.99 alone. Those hoping for a 4G LTE handset will be disappointed, however. The Droid 3 is still a 3G phone, though it does pack some punch with a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a full QWERTY keyboard with a dedicated row for numbers, 1080p video recording, and 16GB of onboard memory. (These specs were leaked last week.) The unit will be available in stores on July 14.

The original Droid helped kick off the massive success Android had in 2009 and 2010, though Motorola itself has since been somewhat eclipsed by emergent competitors like Samsung and HTC. We’ll let you know our thoughts on the new device as soon as we get our hands on it. Motorola has not shown the Droid 3 at any trade shows or events this year, that we know of.
