The DROID BIONIC by Motorola is already here, and it’s providing a superb mixture of abilities and features that are not yet seen in other high-end smartphones. This latest Android handset is said to be designed for people who need a tool to help them control most of the aspects of their busy lives — career, social activities, and entertainment. The DROID BIONIC is the first smartphone on Verizon that is jam-packed with a dual-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity, helping you download heavy contents in remarkable speed.
It has an impressive 4.3-inch Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchscreen display, which could give you nothing but the best user experience. But what really makes the DROID BIONIC stand out over its competitors is its accessories pack. The device supports Motorola’s WebTop dock and could even connect to LapDock chassis.
