Verizon Launching Motorola Droid 3 On July 7, In Stores July 14?

Lately, we’ve been juggling two potential dates for the release of Motorola’s Droid 3 on Verizon. First we heard July 7 would see the smartphone’s launch, but later info pointed to retail sales not beginning until around July 14. As fate would have it, it looks like both dates are sort of right, at least according to a newly-leaked document.

According to this new information, the phone will initially be available via direct-fill on July 7; this is where you might place an order in a Verizon store, but the smartphone is shipped directly to you, rather than being on-site for you to take home. Later, on July 14, is when the Droid 3 would be available through normal retail channels, including those at Best Buy which led to the initial reveal of the July 14 date.

There’s no price available in this leaked screenshot, but we’re most likely to see it arrive with a $200 price point, after factoring in whatever rebates and discounts are applicable. There’s a chance it could be $250, but without LTE, Verizon dare not charge any more than that.
