We’ve had a lot of positive things to say about the Motorola Droid Bionic, rumored for release in the second quarter. The 4G Android handset that is coming to Verizon for its LTE network, is also very similar specs-wise to the Motorola Atrix 4G, its equivalent for the AT&T network and in our comparison we noted that the Atrix 4G maybe just had the edge, but that was mainly because of the addition of the Webtop app used with a laptop dock and giving it PC-like functionality.
Although there have been qualms about the price of the laptop dock for the Atrix it has certainly made that phone stand out from the others and now it seems if you’re after a Droid Bionic when it comes out, you too will be able to have Webtop for it, which means that a laptop dock also looks likely. We’ve already given you price rumors for the Droid Bionic, a comparison with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and included the phone in our roundup of some of the best Android smartphones to come out in 2011, and we’ve always been impressed by it, so news of the Bionic having Webtop will please an awful lot of people waiting avidly for this handset.
Jerry Hildenbrand over on Android Central tells how Motorola is planning the Webtop app for its high-end smartphones from June and Sanjay Jha, Motorola Mobility CEO has confirmed that the Bionic is one of those phones, unsurprisingly. Apparently Webtop won’t quite be ready for inclusion on the Droid Bionic on release but will follow sometime after. It’s not yet known whether a new laptop docking accessory for the Bionic will be universal or specifically for that handset, but we reckon if Motorola could find a way to bring down the price, then this would be a great added feature to the Droid Bionic.
If you want to take a closer look at the Droid Bionic head to Engadget here where you can see images and a video of a hands-on experience with this Android smartphone. As the Droid Bionic is a dual-core processor handset you may also be interested in our previous article which compares the performance of two of the new dual-core handsets, the Motorola Atrix 4G and the LG Optimus 2X against some single-core processor phones. Are you waiting for the Droid Bionic and will the inclusion of Webtop make you want it even more? Let us know with your comments.
