Motorola Droid Bionic

Not that we haven't seen the long-overdue revamped Motorola Droid Bionic about 16 different ways now, but a handful of documents at the FCC unsealed today give us yet another look at the upcoming Verizon smartphone.

In addition to more exterior shots, we get a look at the internals of the phone we've come to know by its Targa codename. And, surprise, surprise, it looks like a smartphone on the inside.

And if you're really looking for the nerdy details, the FCC's also unsealed its testing photos for the Droid Bionic. Interesting stuff, actually. Now if only we had an official release date.

Newly public FCC docs break down the new Droid Bionic, inside and out

After all of this time with leaked pics, specs, and release dates moved time and time again, it would really suck if the phone becomes a major letdown. In the world of Android, phones are hyped for months on end and then 5 minutes after release, they are forgotten as new models get leaked or announced. I have a feeling this is gonna be the case for this phone. Hope not, but wouldn't be surprised if it happens.

This phone will be a beast! Dual core set at 1ghz 1.2ghz 1.5ghz doesn't matter. 90% of people in the real world wont know the difference!

as has been mentioned numerous times...this phone has only officially been delayed...wait for it...ONCE...this is why i get sick of these sites and their "well it could be out on x/x/xxxx" and then when x/x/xxx comes and goes "well we were wrong about that but maybe x/x/xxxx" people believe that x/x/xxxx is an official date when it is no where near an official date, just speculation

Not sure what's worse blurry cam pictures or FCC pictures. Doesn't any one have a good DSLR camera?

Is it just me or does it look like that is a microSD card slot right above the usb connector under the battery door? If so that means hot-swapping...

So I don't get it... its an X2 with lte and and ffc? Why is everyone trying to make it like its more... even the same form factor? Nice try Moto but I'm not fooled.

It also has double the RAM, webtop capabilities and a TI OMAP4 processor instead of the Tegra 2.

ANOTHER OVERPRICED BATTERY DRAINING SMARTPHONE ON LTE....WHEN WILL IT STOP????..Photon 4g and Evo 3d man handles this device...And Oh yeah EVERYONE HOLD ON TO THERE WALLETS YOUR LOOKING AT 350.00 ON CONTRACT..We all know verizon specilizes in OVERCHARGING for LTE and USELESS DEVICES

I am just curious as to how you know that it will have the same bad battery life as the other LTE devices? It is an entirely new SoC, so unless you have one, you are guessing or talking out of your... And as for the price, it has not even been announced, but it will likely be $299 at launch and drop within 3 months. And Sprint's "4G" is DOMINATED by Verizon's LTE. WIMAX gets about 2-5MBps down and maybe 1MBps up and VZW LTE averages 15-20MBps down and 10-20MBps up. Just a tiny bit different.

What's the difference? Honestly, think about it. What the hell would you have to download to notice that difference? Most commonly downloaded apps are what, 5-10mb? In that case, on verizon it takes .5 seconds vs. 1-2 seconds on sprint? If you're downloading something that's 100mb, now we're talking 5-8 sec vs a minute or so? Congratulations, you have just gained a minute of life. A whole minute. That leaves you just enough time to post a riveting distinction on the class separation among 4g speeds. Thank you for that distinction, I think we'll all go home and rethink our lives now.

Ping times are also better on LTE and that makes a big difference. Watching movies on netflix is noticeably better on LTE as well.

Won't argue with that about netflix. But if you're big reason for picking between a new evo and a bionic extends so far as to point out it's easier to watch a movie, then most likely you care a lot about your tech right? Now follow that logic, and wouldn't someone that technically inclined prefer to watch their movies on the home theater you more than likely have?

With that kind of argument, why do we even use cars?? Walk to a friends house that takes 15 minutes or drive there in 2? Hell, why do we do anything that makes life more convenient? In day to day life, speed matters. End of story.

Poor analogy. Sit down your big red kool-aid and be objective. The advantages of driving 2 min. over walking 15 are not analogous to staring at a screen for 2 seconds instead of <1. To make the difference in speed meaningful you'd need to be downloading something close to a gig. At that point you reason that using a laptop makes better sense.

once you can do things faster less data will be consume, which it will help battery life the faster the better Verizon and Moto are the best anyways

A always, the verizon customer reverts to a pissing contest. Oh yeah well my evo beats your droid. Neener neener neeeeeener!.....

LTE takes a dump on WiMax and 3G. It'll likely be $250-300 but no one knows for sure. Verizon would never charge more than $300 unless they really want people to not buy this phone. I think it would be smart to go $250 so more people can afford it.
And the Bionic is the first Motorola LTE device, and only LTE device using a dual core CPU. A dual core CPU SAVES battery life, and it will have a huge battery compared to any other smartphone
