Bionic details

A tipster that's "close to the matter" was able to send us this blurrycam shot of a slide shown at the end of the Verizon earnings report, and it includes a few Motorola Droid Bionic details.  This basically confirms the laptop dock, full Bluetooth keyboard, and HD webtop dock with IR remote ability.  There's no word if any of these docking accessories that already are available for the Motorola Atrix 4G are compatible, but we're not holding our breath.  It also shows off the chrome banding around the edge of the device, which lends that extra bit of design to an otherwise generic black slab.  Of course the news we all really want to know -- the release date -- is nowhere to be seen.

Thanks, Anon!

I can't believe how much the wait for this phone is killing me ...the serious lag I am starting to get with my Droid charge is even more reason for me to lust over this phone ...I just wish we had the full specs and release date ...price is not a factor ...my theory is if u want it ur gonna pay the price ...I am not eligible for an upgrade so I know I'm paying full retail...I have a weird feeling that on Monday they will announce this phone and some of the major specs ...I dunno why I just feel that if August 4th is a true date then Monday announcement makes sense ...IMHO

I'm still intrigued by the need for three USB ports on the dock. It's got IR, so what are all those USB ports for? I mean, who would hook a keyboard and a mouse into a dock? If you were going that route, you'd want the webtop right? Baffled.

That phone on the projector looks like the Etna... The Targa Bionic is a lot less bloated and bulbous looking.

Yeah, that's the old Bionic. Compare that to the leaked car dock photos and you can tell. Verizon logo is in a totally different spot.

Eh, I'm over the Bionic already. Now that CM7 has given my DX new life with tons of customization and discovering the amazing apps like folder organizer, make your own clock, desktop visualizer, and the custom launcher icon app the possibilities are endless. Why spend 400+ on a phone though great, is not braking any new ground? I love the phone just not worth it to me anymore. I'll wait for the next big game changer.

So when the Bionic is actually released the X3D will be coming out. And the Bionic will be out of date. Taking forever to release this phone they will miss the boat, who do they think they are Blackberry?

The HD Desktop Dock was confirmed by Amazon's listing to have a wireless remote and 3 USB ports. This information posted above confirms my theory that the 3 jacks would be used to turn the Bionic into some sort of PC on your TV using a mouse, keyboard and the other to charge while using HDMI to output to the TV and audio out to an audio system. Its a perfect combination of 3 abilities into one. PC, Video and Audio.

Droidx GB , RealHDMI and a bluetooth mouse. Done works fantastic! I now have a 50in plasma monitor :) no need for the bionic now.

If it's a pentile screen, it's a deal breaker. Had the X2 for a few days and COULD NOT STAND IT. The Motorola pentile screen cannot render gradients at all so those great pictures look like splotchy globs. It is like looking at an ancient dot matrix print out. They say it saves power. You bet. It looks so terrible you don't want to look at it and you sure as heck don't want to show it to anyone so it gets turned on 50% less. Loved my Droid X screen. They totally screwed that phone up with a crummy Gingerbread build.
If it's not pentile, I'm in. Otherwise, bring on the other vaporware unicorn. The Galaxy S2!!! (As long as it has a front facing camera, dual cores and LTE.)

That looks ALOT like the CES Bionic/Etna. Could it be?

Unfortunately, I'm sure its just an incorrect or old photoshop.

Pass for now. Will enjoy my Charge and XOOM (LTE haha). Of course this could all change with a device in hand. Must...Have..The..Newest!

I wonder how much Droid Charges are going for on ebay?

I think your photo has been shopped

You see it's obviously shopped because it's blurry.

I can't believe someone didn't take a brand new Nikon D7000 right up to the front of the presentation and say hey we're going to link this photo on Android Central.

You know what that means, it's time to get an education, because obviously you don't need to get an education to get in a pre earnings call conference or anything...

Oh and Jerry remember the big rule it's not an EXCLUSIVE unless the other AC breaks it
