Motorola DROID BIONIC is finally official, sales to start September 8
Android fans, we have some pretty exciting news for you today! The wait for the highly-anticipated Motorola DROID BIONIC is finally over as the smartphone has just been officially announced.

What makes the Motorola DROID BIONIC special is that it is the first Verizon smartphone to offer both the processing power of a dual-core 1GHz processor backed up by a gig of RAM and the blazing-fast broadband speeds of the carrier's 4G LTE network. Add a scratch-resistant, 4.3-inch qHD display to the equation and you get a smartphone that truly deserves its flagship status in the carrier's portfolio.

The back of the Motorola DROID BIONIC is graced by an 8-megapixel camera capable of taking 1080p videos, and a front-facing shooter lets you enjoy video chats with your buddies. A total of 32 gigabytes of storage are at your disposal, 16 gigs on board and another 16 via the pre-installed microSD card, meaning that running out of space will not be much of a concern. 

On the software side, the Motorola DROID BIONIC comes running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with a few goodies added as a bonus, courtesy of the manufacturer. The ZumoCast app comes pre-loaded and lets you wirelessly transfer files and media from your desktop computer to the smartphone and vice versa. Furthermore, the MOTOPRINT app adds the convenience of printing documents wirelessly via a Wi-Fi-enabled printer.

There is also a whole bunch of optional accessories tailored specifically for the Motorola DROID BIONIC. The Lapdock, for example, turns the smartphone into a full-fledged netbook with its 11.6-inch screen, physical keyboard and integrated trackpad. Furthermore, the HD station transforms the device into a mini entertainment center for your home or office, and a portable, pocket-sized battery dock can be used to charge both the DROID BIONIC and a spare battery simultaneously.

Starting September 8, the Motorola DROID BIONIC will be available for purchase in Verizon outlets across the country and on the carrier's online store. As expected, the smartphone will carry a $299 on-contract price tag. Is the Motorola DROID BIONIC going to be the next smartphone to land in your pocket? Feel free to drop a comment below and let us know.
