Motorola DROID BIONIC to "end the waiting" on Verizon's 4G LTE network with dual-core CPU

Motorola DROID BIONIC to
Motorola just unveiled the Motorola DROID BIONIC, one of the first Android handsets to rock Verizon's4G LTE network with a powerful dual-core processor. And yes, ifyou were jealous about AT&T getting the Motorola Atrix 4G - with the DROID BIONIC you don't need to be. It may not be the first with 4G forVerizon, but it will definitely make a splash.

This gorgeous 4.3 inch qHD (540 x 960 pixels that is) powerhousehas two processor cores, which will run at 1GHz each, while 512MB of DDR2 RAM willmake this phone tick. Take a look at the sleek design of the MotorolaDROID BIONIC at the pictures below. The wait will not be long –Verizon is getting the phone in the beginning of the secondquarter of 2011. An 8 megapixel camera with HD video capabilitiesand 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 ofwaiting/loading/boredom/faceless conversation” concept and wealready have our hands itchy to take the DROID BIONIC for a hands onreview. The BIONIC is ready to serve the business as well with abusiness suite for email management and better productivity. Editingof 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.

Phone is a little thick...but atleast its LTE compatible. Not crazy about the design tho.

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.

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....

During the official conference, Motorola showed a slide that said "512 MB of RAM"

Just wish they would stick to 4 inch display screens.

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.
