Rumors of the Motorola Droid 3 have been floating around for a while now, and while pictures have been nice, what’s been lacking is confirmation on spec details.  Now, thanks to a reliable tipster with a history of providing us with confirmed information, we can give you some of that highly desired confirmation.

While there has been speculation of a 4-inch qHD screen on the Droid 3, our tipster has now confirmed it.  The keyboard has been modified as first seen in the leaked photo shown below from Howard Forums, but we now know for sure that a fifth row of keys has been added, finally bringing those dedicated number buttons that people have been looking for in the Droid series.

The new entry into the Droid family will be powered by a dual-core processor which is presumed to be the  NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, but could potentially be OMAP.  The phone will feature an HDMI out port for all of your video watching needs.  A forward facing camera will also be along for the ride for video chatting, but it is unclear what the cam’s resolution will be.  On the back will be an 8 megapixel camera.

According to our tipster, the new phone is currently slated for a June release, but there’s no word on pricing as of yet.  What he also confirms, which surprises us, is that there won’t be any LTE support on the Droid 3.  Considering how Verizon’s pushing this technology, we’re not sure why it will be skipping this phone, but it appears it is.

While we are far from having Droid 3′s full spec sheet, it does appear to be shaping up as a nice addition to the Droid line.  Thanks to our tipster for sending over the info, and we’ll update you as we get more information on this new handset.  Be sure to let us know what you think of this work in progress in the comments below.
