Verizon DROID 3 by Motorola detailed: $200 imminently?

Verizon's DROID 3 by Motorola has begun to show up across the carrier's site, though is not yet available for online ordering. The QWERTY smartphone - billed as the thinnest full-keyboard smartphone ever - is listed both on the DROID DOES mini-site, complete with full specifications.

The 4.9 x 2.5 x 0.5 inch DROID 3 has a dual-core 1GHz processor, 4-inch qHD 960 x 540 resolution display, and a slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard. There's also an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video capture, a front-facing camera for video calls, and a pre-installed 16GB microSD card.

What you don't get, oddly, is 4G LTE connectivity. Instead, the DROID 3 is a World Phone with CDMA/EVDO Rev.A along with HSPA for use while abroad; you can also share the data connection with mobile hotspot functionality. OS is Android 2.3 with the usual Motorola tweaks.

Although the purchase link is still not active, it does at least tell us the price: the Verizon DROID 3 by Motorola will be $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement and mandatory data plan (one the new, tiered ones) when it finally goes up for sale. We're guessing Verizon will make all this officially-official with a press release later on today.
