As the Android platform continues its fast rise, we are seeing many desirable new smartphones becoming available. The HTC Thunderbolt has recently landed on the Verizon network, but the Motorola Droid Bionic is also due to be released on the network. Another handset which has been spoken about lately is the HTC Pyramid which is thought to be coming to T-Mobile.
Debbie Turner over at Online Social Media has written a detailed article looking at what is known about the upcoming handsets so far. The Droid Bionic is already been made official by Motorola, but at the moment we only have leaks about the Pyramid.
What we already know about the Droid Bionic is from the official Motorola product pages, and the leaks about the Pyramid shows that these two handsets are going to be very good when they are available. The Bionic will have a dual-core processor, and it is thought the HTC handset will also be powered by something similar.
The Motorola handset will have an 8-megapixel shooter on the rear, with a 0.3-megapixel round the front. Screen wise the Bionic will feature a 4.3-inch gHD display which is also thought to be on the Pyramid. The HTC has the upper hand with the camera side of things as the front facing one comes in at 1.3-megapixels, with the back the same at 8-megapixels.
Android 2.2 will be running the Droid when it is first released, with an Android 2.3 upgrade coming shortly after. The Pyramids operating system is more intriguing however, as it has been speculated to be having Honeycomb 3.0. But this is an operating system for tablet devices so whether it comes to the Pyramid remains to be seen.
Motorola’s handset has 512MB of RAM with the Pyramid said to be having 768MB. The Droid is a 4G handset, and the Pyramid is also thought to be 4G. Release wise the Droid Bionic is thought to be coming mid-April, with the HTC could be available the following month.
Both of these handsets will prove very popular when they are released, and continues the excellent choice the Android platform is now seeing with smartphones. There must be some iPhone users that wouldn’t consider changing, but must throw some admiring looks towards some of the new Android smartphones becoming available.
