Now, the phone has been available from VZW's website for just about a week now, but if you have an eye for deals, you'll have steered clear of that venue and instead held out hope that some third-party retailer would be able to offer the device for less than $199.99. And today that wish has become reality - Wirefly has put up a product page for the DROID 3, and assuming that you'll be picking it up with a new two-year contract, the handset can be yours for just $149.99.
Actually, it gets better than that: the same price ($149.99) applies to those adding a line to their family plans or upgrading their existing Verizon phones. Off-contract, the DROID 3 costs $549.99 at Wirefly, which is rather disappointing considering that even VZW's online store lists $459.99 as the full retail price.
As a reminder, the DROID 3's specs are:
- 4" QHD display (960x540)
- Dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor (it's faster than a Tegra 2)
- 512MB RAM
- 1080p video capture, front and rear cameras
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard
