Aaron pits the Motorola DROID 3 and Motorola DROID X2 together in a Verizon-themed dogfight battle!  The DROID 3 offers a dual-core 1 GHz TI OMAP processor, 4-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera, front-facing camera for video calling, physical QWERTY keyboard, global roaming capabilities, and Android 2.3 with Motorola's Applications Platform.  The DROID X2 is the successor to the original DROID X and offers a dual-core 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera, and Android 2.2 (though 2.3 is right around the corner).  They're both available from Verizon for $199.99.

While they're both high-end smartphones that perform well, each one has a few special features that make it worth considering over the other one.  Which one will win the battle?  Part 1 of 2.
