Motorola Droid Bionic Arrives on September 8 With a $300 Price Tag

Verizon will ship in the Droid Bionic on September 8 with a $300 price tag.

The Motorola Droid Bionic might become very expensive when Verizon ship it in. A leaked internal note has the minimum advertised price of $300 on contract, or as much as the Droid Charge. Android Central’s copy also penned in a release date which is on September 8.

The pricing made it the most expensive phone in history of Verizon, and could put it out of contention when it goes head to head with the iPhone 5 — which is said to be release a few weeks later. Apple might start off the iPhone 5 along with a $199 price tag. Motorola, like others, may need to charge a premium for first generation LTE hardware. How much of that pricing is Verizon’s versus Motorola’s is still unclear.

The Droid Bionic’s new version will be the Verizon’s first dual-core 4G phone, and it will also be the first Verizon phone that will have a TI OMAP processor instead of the usual Tegra 2. It also features a 4.3 inch 540×960 screen that might make it one of the visually richer models. It might be on par in cameras with 8 megapixels at the back as well, and at least a VGA resolution camera at the front.

Based on the latest statistics, Google Android OS takes the lead over Apple iOS.

Looks like Apple has something to say. According to the newest data from Nielsen, smartphones running Google’s Android OS smashed down Apple’s iOS on the first 6 months of 2010 by 27% and 23% for Apple. These are merely from US market alone. Series of data from NPD showed the same results when Android claimed 28% of smartphone sales, while Apple’s iPhone got only 21%.

With all fairness to Apple’s iPhone 4, it was released last week of July, it might be closer to Android if it was released earlier.

Leaked User Guide: Read Up On Yet-To-Be-Released Droid 2

Written on July 31, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

Motorola will be launching Droid 2 next month, but the excitement and expectations that go along with leaked phone shots and user guide are already off and running. Well, we also cannot wait to see.

Froyo-powered smartphone Droid 2 is yet to hit display stands but we already know that it looks similar with the original Droid and runs the same skin as the Droid X’s. Leaked shots and user guide, although we do not expect them to come in high quality, give away much needed information we will not otherwise know until the phone’s official release. The leaked manual confirms that Droid X’s cousin features pre-installed Swype and multitouch capability in its soft keyboard. As these leaks have preceded the release of the phone that is presumed to be the iPhone’s upcoming tough rival, we can suppose that the final product may come out a tad bit different than what we get from the documentation. What we are surely expecting is for Verizon to launch it soon this August.

There is a MeeGo on the screen, not the Droid we'd been wishing for, but the reason behind is that the kit can actually switch between operating systems by just swapping your MicroSD card.

Upon meeting the Finnish startup of Aava Mobile, we recognized the same paradigm phone. Surprisingly it dropped a brand new device alongside to show us how their Moorestown-based goals have grown. This is the Virta 2 design that will be given to the developers very very soon, same hardware with different twists. There is a MeeGo on the screen, not the Droid we’d been wishing for, but the reason behind is that the kit can actually switch between operating systems by just swapping your MicroSD card.
