The Motorola Droid 3 has had more leaks than a Welsh allotment, but now the high-spec'd handset is finally official - with Verizon (the perpetrator of most of the leaks) putting the phone up for sale on its website.

The Droid 3 (which we hope will come to the UK, possibly as the Milestone 3) is a Gingerbread handset, boasting a five-row QWERTY keyboard and rocking a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP chip.

It packs a 4-inch qHD 960x540 display and has 16GB of onboard storage - which is handy because you'll be eating up plenty of space by storing the 1080p videos that it is capable of recording. It also has an 8-megapixel camera for stills, with auto-focus and face recognition and a front facing cam for video calling.

Connectivity on the Verizon version is All–Digital, 800/1900, CDMA EVDO rev A and GSM 850/900/1800/1900 UMTS, Wi-Fi, DLNA and Bluetooth 2.1 and it has a 1540mAH Li–Ion battery.

Verizon is selling the Motorola Droid 3 for $459.99 on a rolling monthly deal, $199.99 on a 2-year contract. No word as of yet with regards to a UK release - we'll keep you updated though.
