Verizon takes possession of Droid Bionic

By Peter Chubb - Aug 13, 2011

The release of the Droid Bionic will be very soon, as images have just been leaked online that show Verizon has taken possession of this much-anticipated handset. You will be forgiven for being a little bored with hearing about this handset all the time, as it was first mentioned all those months ago back at CES. However, the release is upon us, so those who have not rushed to get an alternative are now learning that patience is a virtue.

We knew that it would not be long before the Bionic gets released, as it has now done its bit on the FCC website. Over on Howard Forums there are two nice size images of the new handset from Motorola, and although a little blurry, not as much as we have seen recently. While it is good seeing this smartphone in the hands of someone in Verizon, all we want to see is it in the hands of consumers.

While up on the FCC website we were treated to the users guide and manual, so perfect for those who want to brush up on some of the features before they get their hands on one. GottaBeMobile also came across shots of the Bionic a few days ago and were able to share with us the finalized specs for the device, and they are what we had presumed for sometime now.

What has us most excited about the Bionic is that this dual-core processor device will be able to take full advantage of Verizon’s LTE network. Currently the HTC ThunderBolt is said to be the fastest 4G handset on the block, so we have high hopes for Motorola’s latest and greatest, as everything about it is better than the ThunderBolt – hopefully the battery as well.

One has to be glad of such leaked photos, as you can learn so much from them, such as the 4.5-inch display that we can look forward to, which will show the Droid Charge a thing or two, but is on par with the T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II. There are those who say that the Bionic will have a curved glass design, but for some reason we just cannot see it on those blurry images.

Upon closer inspection we can see that there are four Android touch buttons below the screen and a microUSB and microHDMI port on the left-hand side, as well as the volume buttons on the right, and a speaker grille at the top.

Have you put off other handsets for the Droid Bionic?

    Agree. 4.3

  • I have waited for the Bionic since CES last January.  However, I may not end up with it now as it looks like there will be other choices in September and October.  It will be an exciting two months for those looking to purchase a high end smartphone.

    It’s not a 4.5 inch screen. It’s 4.3.  She has small hands, so you are mistaken.  But no worriez.

      You dont any facts to back your statement up that it is a 4.3 inch screen. No official specs have been released by anyone. Small hands or not dude, that is a 4.5 inch display easily. Ive seen 4.3 and that is not 4.3….

      • It is official, it is 4.3″ qHD.  Its stated in the phone’s user manual which is available from the FCC site.  That user manual is an official Motorola document.  Camera angle and hand size can make it look larger.  Of course, the pic could be Photoshopped as well.  You never know.

          Is that the same manual that stated it was a global device? Exactly, see where I’m going this? Great, thx for playing.

        • flight do you know ANY device with a SIM card that is not global – the main two networks used globally are GSM (sim card) and cdma…..the bionic will have both….jeez
