Motorola Droid Bionic Release soon: A Closer Look

The Motorola Droid Bionic is a 4G phone coming to Verizon and as far as we know is still scheduled for a second quarter release. This is set to be a hugely popular phone although we haven’t heard as much about it as some of the other 4G phones such as the Motorola Atrix 4G now released on AT&T and the HTC ThunderBolt coming to Verizon, the release saga of which is currently making news.

Because the Droid Bionic was due for release later than the other 2 phones we’ve mentioned, the focus has been very much on the Atrix and ThunderBolt but since we still have not seen the release of the latter and are no clearer yet on a release date, some people are turning their attention increasingly towards the Droid Bionic. The Droid Bionic product pages have now appeared on the Motorola website listed as ‘coming soon’ and that will be heartening to a lot of people so we thought we’d take a closer look at this promising handset.

The Droid Bionic is, as we said previously, a 4G handset which will run on the Verizon LTE network and we previously included the Bionic in our pick of the best upcoming Android smartphones. Mark Peters over on Let’s Go Digital has rounded up a useful look at specs and features of the Droid Bionic from Motorola. It packs a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and could have performance speeds of up to 10 times faster than a standard 3G phone. It’s also a social smartphone with front-facing camera and video feature, as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera.

We also told informed recently that the Droid Bionic will receive Webtop and we think that will please an awful lot of people. The Bionic will run on Android 2.2 and is set to receive a Gingerbread update after release, features MOTOBLUR and will also have a 4.3-inch qHD display. Other features of the Droid Bionic are remote wipe and data security, the inclusion of tools such as Microsoft Quick office and conference calling access. It supports Adobe Flash player along with HTML5 and also features multiplayer gaming capabilities along with HDMI connectivity. As far as price goes we’ve heard rumors that Amazon will be selling it at $150 but that is unconfirmed.

If you want to see more on the Droid Bionic we’ve also published a comparison between the Bionic and the Samsung Galaxy S2, and also a look at the Atrix 4G vs. the Droid Bionic so check those out at the links. Are you waiting to hear more about the Motorola Droid Bionic? We’ll bring you the news of a release date as soon as we hear it but in the meantime let us know if you intend to purchase the Bionic which we think is a pretty impressive all around Android smartphone.
