Motorola Droid Bionic: Fortunate Person Gets Hands-On

When it comes to choosing a new smartphone, the decision is arduous, there are so many on the market and many in the pipeline, that the whole process is enough to give anybody a headache. This time last year, Apple’s iPhone 4 had already released and was being snapped up by many despite its teething problems like the antenna-gate problem. After this, many others including BlackBerry’s, HTC’s, LG’s and of course Samsung handsets started to be announced.

This year there has a been a huge breakthrough with devices running on Android’s OS and Apple no doubt have had to think long and hard about bringing out something extra special to compete against such smartphones. A new iPhone 5 is rumored to be announced in the coming weeks, but with Samsung’s new Galaxy S II that’s taken over the phone world and Motorola’s Droid Bionic due out at the beginning of September, its going to be an interesting few months ahead.

Our news today is concentrating on Motorola’s impressive handset which up until now has got everybody talking. With a release date set early part of next month, this comes from the company’s own CEO, there has been news today that some pictures of the device have been seen in the wild.

According to Michael Gorman over at Engadget via Howard Forums, leaked pictures of the phone have been seen, when the device was given out to a friend courtesy of a Motorola rep. In the past we’ve spoken about FCC news confirming the devices 4.3-inch qHd display as well as news of a manual and users’ guide, possible price, comparisons against other devices particularly that of the Galaxy S II and neighbouring phones, that of the Photon 4G and the forthcoming Dinara.

The Bionic has already been delayed in the past due to the company making “enhancements” to the phone. These such as a rear camera with bigger megapixels, dual-core processor, bigger battery, 4G LTE and of course the screen are hoped to entice customers making for a impressive phone experience. Up until now the topic of implementing 4G LTE capability onto smartphones has been a huge topic of discussion, which the HTC Thunderbolt already uses giving it the title of the fastest currently on the market.

Tell us what you think about the snapshots of the new Moto? Interested? Have you been waiting for the Droid Bionic?

    These pics came out two days ago. There has been much talk regarding the pic on the left as it gives the illusion either through camera angle and/or the person’s hand size that the Bionic is much bigger than it really is. I have over 40 pics of the Bionic Targa now so as more pics come out, its no big deal now. However, these pics are of interest since they allegedly were taken inside a Verizon store. Enough of all the leaked pics and specs; its time for Motorola and Verizon to formally market this phone through their own sites and to validate the release date of September 8th. Jacob Palmer at GizmoCrunch has just said that the Bionic has been delayed until October. I’m hoping he is mistaken about that.
