The folks over at iFixIt got their hands on the newly released Motorola DROID 3 for Verizon, and in typical fashion the handset didn’t stay in one piece for long. The device teardown shows us much of what we expected — a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 CPU, 512MB of RAM, and a 4.0-inch qHD Gorilla Glass display — but has one rather interesting revelation. The Droid 3 features a pre-installed SIM card to further expands the handset’s global reach. The inclusion of the GSM-compatiblity makes this Droid 3 a true world-roamer, though (as a Verizon warns) data fees could reach as high as $20 per MB when outside the US.
