Yes. The Droid 3 (OMAP) uses LPDDR2 333/266 MHz whereas Tegra 2 is designed for a 133 MHz DDR spec.

Two things I noticed about the pentile screen after I finally stopped staring at it to see if the pentile matrix bugged me (it doesn't):

1) This screen is very viewable outside, which my Thunderbolt was not.
2) The screen uses less power than any screen I've ever heard of. Typically 2-5% throughout a normal work day with a few calls, some texts and messages.

It still feels small to me after two 4.3's. But the keyboard... it must have been designed by a concert pianist with a Master's Degree in Hell Yeah! It's a pretty good keyboard.

Agree on all points.

Yes, well, it's ticking me off, it's inconvenient. Is there a good "ping an admin because the site needs fixing" button somewhere?

Even if you dont want a keyboard, how is this not glamorous? Its better than the thunderbolt, charge, x2, incredible 2. This is definitely the best vzw phone out right now untill the bionic and or sgs2 comes out.

Many think that if a phone does not have a massive screen or if it has a keyboard it is not high end. Not everyone needs a massive 4.3 inch screen though. I prefer something with a keyboard that fits in my pocket. Even the 4 inch screen on the D3 is pushing it. 3.7 is just right to me. I have good eyes though.
