Verizon rolls out Droid 3

The Droid 3 is available now on Verizon's Web site.

Verizon announced that the Droid 3 is now available online and will hit stores by July 14.

The 3G smartphone will be $199.99 with a two-year agreement. The phone requires a nationwide talk plan and a smartphone data plan.

Verizon will stop offering its unlimited data plans to new customers, replacing them with tiered plans : 2GB of data for $30 per month, 5GB for $50 and 10 GB for $80.

The phone has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 4-inch touchscreen, dual-core processor and 8MP camera.

A dual-mode phone, the Droid 3 can be used around the world, but can’t be used on Verizon’s 4G network.

The Droid 3 runs Android 2.3, Gingerbread and has an HDMI port that allows users to mirror their photos, videos and movies on a TV with an HDMI cable.

Motorola says this is the world’s “thinnest full QWERTY smartphone,” at a half-inch thick.
