Verizon Quietly Puts Droid 3 Up for Sale

And we thought the Droid 2 landed with less than expected fanfare.  Verizon has made the Droid 3 official today, quietly sneaking it onto their website as well as DroidDoes.com.  The Android 2.3 handset runs $199.99 with a two-year service agreement or $459.99 outright.  For those who aren’t familiar, specifications include dual-core 1GHz processor, 8-megapixel camera (1080p video),  a 4-inch qHD display,16GB storage, and a 5-row sliding QWERTY keyboard.  Even without 4G support, we have a hard time saying that this “Globetrotting Goliath” isn’t worth its price.  Be sure to check out Verizon’s website for more information!

Specifically, there is something about certain email-to-SMS messages that corrupts Android’s SQLite database, causing unpredictable results thereafter.
