Motorola kicked off CES 2011 with their new Droid Bionic, their latest offering that will surely catch the attention of gadget enthusiasts everywhere. The gadget brings some new and kick-ass features to the table. Get a glimpse and find out if the new Droid Bionic is the right choice for you in this quick article.
After officially unveiling the Android 3.0 Xoom tablet, Motorola gave the public present at CES the chance to admire their new LTE 4G powered Droid Bionic. With its 4.3 inch screen, the Motorola Droid Bionic has a relatively big screen compared to other smartphones although this is certainly not a disadvantage. It’s clear, bright and has a wide viewing angle. The phone has a nice rubber-like surface, and the screen has a very pleasant aesthetic element to it. The rubberized case makes it very easy to grip. The Motorola Droid Bionic is equipped with LTE hardware and doesn’t have a sliding QWERTY keyboard thus making it a bit lighter than the Droid 2.
The specifications sheet is impressive. Motorola Droid Bionic has the processing power of a dual core processor with each core at 1GHz and a memory of 512 MB DDR2 RAM. You can certainly benefit from this amazing speed as well as the fact that the smartphone handled itself very well with no visible stuttering and minimal load times. However, the observation was based on a brand new phone with 16GB of storage that has been mostly empty with a few apps installed. If you pack it to the max with all your files, it should slow the speed monster down a little.
The camera is on the plus side for the Motorola Droid Bionic. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the rear and in the front, a VGA camera which is excellent for video calls. It supports Auto Focus and LED Flash and it is strong enough to support 1080p High Definition level and of course, the gadget is provided with 1080p video playback. Your multimedia experience is enhanced by the incorporation of HDMI mirroring so that you can simultaneously play video on both the phone and the TV.
The Motorola Droid Bionic ships with the Android 2.2 software so the web-kit browser fully supports Flash media and HTML 5. For those who prefer Gingerbread, don’t worry. Chances are that the software is fully upgradable to Android 2.3 GingerBread. The internet experience is up to 4 times faster than the usual 3G due to the LTE 4G feature. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR are supported, of course, with up to five devices being handled by the mobile Hi-FI spot. Another important feature for gamers is the phone’s multiplayer capabilities. Aided by the 4.3 inch screen, playing games with your friends is going to keep you all hyped up!
The new smartphone also comes equipped with a lot of features like remote wipe, data security, corporate e-mail compatibility, full calendar management and large suite of Google and Quick office applications. It’s worth noticing that the Droid Bionic fully supports social networking services such as Facebook, Twiter and Youtube – something standard for a phone which is trying to lead the pack.
Motorola’s latest smartphone has plenty of processing power and features to grab the public’s interest. If the Li-ion 1930mAh battery performs up to standards, the Droid Bionic is definitely an interesting choice in today’s mobile market. The Motorola Droid Bionic will be available in Q2 2011 in the USA while the rest of the world will have to wait for some months. No prices are announced yet.
