After months of waiting, consumers can get their hands on the new Motorola Droid Bionic at Verizon stores Thursday.
It’s the first Verizon smartphone to combine 4G LTE with dual core 1 gigahertz processors, 1 gig of RAM and a huge 4.3 inch screen, and Motorola claims it’s the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone in Verizon’s lineup. Customers can also expect download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 5o 5 Mbps on Verizon’s phenomenal 4G network.
Other new features?
A new app called “ZumoCast” will let customers turn their device into a multimedia hub importing pictures, videos, music and documents from their computers. The phone can also send a full-featured Firefox Web broser, email or documents to a TV or a computer monitor, in a very Apple Air Play like piece of functionality.
In addition to those features, the new Droid has scratch-resistant “Gorilla Glass” with a dual layer anti-reflective coating; an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and 1080P video capture in back; a front facing camera for video chat (or network or WiFi); a built-in app to print over WiFi printers; and it comes with Adobe Flash preloaded.
The phone also has 16 GB of on board memory and a 16 GB microSD card pre-installed.
The phone will be a hefty $299.99 with a two-year agreement and will require a minimum $39.99 (450 minute) talk plan plus a smartphone data package of at least $30 (2 gigs of data).
