Motorola DROID BIONIC to "end the waiting" on Verizon's 4G LTE network with dual-core CPU
This gorgeous 4.3 inch qHD (540 x 960 pixels that is) powerhouse has two processor cores, which will run at 1GHz each, while 512MB of DDR2 RAM will make this phone tick. Take a look at the sleek design of the Motorola DROID BIONIC at the pictures below. The wait will not be long – Verizon is getting the phone in the beginning of the second quarter of 2011. An 8 megapixel camera with HD video capabilities and a front-facing camera will make video calling a breeze. Entertainment is well covered with Adobe Flash and HTML 5 support, as well as with HDMI output to your large screen TV.
The phone represents “the end of
waiting/loading/boredom/faceless conversation” concept and we
already have our hands itchy to take the DROID BIONIC for a hands on
review. The BIONIC is ready to serve the business as well with a
business suite for email management and better productivity. Editing
of documents is expected as well. The BIONIC, which comes with 16GB of built-in memory, will be powered by Android Froyo with MOTOBLUR on top. It's a heavyweight - both in specs and in size with 158 g (5.57 ounces) of weight.

if a good 4G, duel-core, qwerty packer by Motorola doesn't come along soon i might just have to trade up my Droid 2 for this. 0-0

dude have you tried one of these keyboards? no need for qwerty.
40. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)

When does this phone come out?

Phone is a little thick...but atleast its LTE compatible. Not crazy about the design tho.
38. Junior (Posts: 52; Member since: 09 Jun 2010)
I'm not too fond of the design either. Specs are outstanding but the fact that it doesn't come out until Q2 and it also isn't the most beautiful thing, just might push me to settle for the Thunderbolt.

Kick stand would be nice............but I wont complain. Anyone know how to get an upgrade any earlier than the 1 year mark?

The truth hurts.........damn it! I guess I could beg or play the" if I have to use this BB Bold one more day i'll blow my brains out" card

Yes...bring your nice girlfriend in to the phone store and have her sweet talk the manager (helps if its a guy) about how she already used the upgrade for a crappy phone but reeally wants the new one...blah, batting eyelashes, blah...worked for us! :o)

512MB is ok, but hopefully it has 1GB - if the wife wants to bolt back to VERIZON for their supposed iphone, then I will get this phone...gotta have 1Gb RAM though....
17. Corpsemaker (Posts: 63; Member since: 10 Jul 2010)
During the official conference, Motorola showed a slide that said "512 MB of RAM"

Just wish they would stick to 4 inch display screens.
27. LionStone (Posts: 406; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
Agreed...the 4" screen really is the perfect size for a cell phone...4.3" is just a tad cumbersome...I went back and forth between the Samsung Galaxy and the Droid Inc. I chose the Inc. for other reasons, but really liked the size of the Samsung.

correction: I went back and forth between the Samsung "Fascinate" and the Droid Inc.

With early upgrade and new phone every two years going away as of the 16th this month, I'm thinking this phone may not be one, I and others can get tell are old contacts are over. Bad Verizon, bad, bad, bad. Been with them for 12 years and this is how there going to treat me. BYBY Verizon....
P.S. Still want this phone, Darnit.

nvm, and ps
NO ONE IS EXCITED.
--everyone is excited for AT&T they really pushed through. hopefully the new iPhone will be their first LTE phone, making AT&T the only carrier to have HSPA+ and LTE. taking down verizon.
26. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
uhhh, you know Verizon isn't going to just give up on bettering their network in the 2 years it's going to take AT&T to get their LTE network up, they'll be at the same pace behind Verizon but both putting out faster speeds and spectrum efficiency and besides it's starting to look like Verzon is getting the iPhone much sooner than later and Verizon's "4G" Android announcements are going to be more abundant than AT&T's today then the only thing that'll be important is the network and need i say more? so in other words AT&T owns the day but tomorrow they'll suck again.

wow, Moto is really getting in the fight with the most lovely OS in the world
24. luis_lopez_351 (Posts: 951; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
so far the only physical flaw is no kick stand(not really a flaw but its prefer with 1 now). cant wait for its performance stats :D
28. omarc26 (Posts: 357; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)

I will never buy another Motorola phone because I currently own a Droid 2 and I hate having MOTOBLUR. The first Droid was stock Android and I loved it. Never again Moto unless it doesn't have BLUR!!!
33. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
what is so wrong with Blur!?? i don't get it.
36. bkes216 (Posts: 4; Member since: 05 Jan 2011)
Apparently this has a newer version of Blur than is on the Droid 2/X and so far places like Engadget have been impressed with it. Wait and see before you write things off.
32. Whateverman (Posts: 3150; Member since: 17 May 2009)
@ iHateBlur - I was never a fan of Motorola but their hardware and the Android OS are an unbeatable combination. And the fact that I can just download Launcher Pro, ADW, and other launcher seems to make Blur a non-issue.
35. bkes216 (Posts: 4; Member since: 05 Jan 2011)
Looks good, but a little disappointed with the capacitive menu/home/back/search buttons, i like the physical buttons on my Droid X. We'll see in July how much I like this...

When will we see this phone at verizon stores? when is the second quarter?
44. Kountry (unregistered)
I think I will go for the thunderbolt, better build quality and reliable just like any htc phone Ive had, had the droid X and kept messin up on me and whats up with this cheap plastic feel, ill go for the metal unibody on the thunderbolt, bionic tho is still pretty sweet!

What's with the variable aspect ratio on these and lots of other smartphone pictures? Some shots make this phone look long and narrow, others short and wide.
