After nine months of leaks and blurry pictures, the Motorola DROID Bionic is finally here. Featuring a completely new design, the flagship 4G LTE smartphone offers a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, a front-facing shooter, large 1,735 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with Motorola's custom UI. It bridges the gap between Verizon's high-end, dual-core 3G lineup and their 4G (but underpowered) group. It's available now for $299.99 with a two-year contract.
Even though it's way late, the DROID Bionic is still an impressively spec'd device, but the market is moving much faster than it was in January. Is it worth dropping the cash for now, or should you wait on other high-end Verizon Android phones like the Nexus Prime? We'll debate it. Part 1 of 2.
