Droid Bionic Hands-On [VIDEO]

I don't think I can say this enough, I wish I were in Vegas right now for CES.

Looks like the Bionic specs I looked at and posted yesterday were off in one area, it has 16GB built-in RAM, so that's an extra level of awesomeness. Estimated release on Verizon, early Q2 (April-ish).

The Droid Franchise has a new title: the Motorola Droid Bionic, of course, for Verizon Wireless. Announced last night at Motorola’s CES 2011 Press Event, we were able to get a hands-on demonstration walking us through the main hardware features of the phone as well as some great software inclusions.

One of my FAVORITE features of this phone is the HDMI mirroring. With many Android phones including HDMI Out, they won’t mirror whatever is on your screen, they’ll only allow you to connect for the purposes of playing locally stored video files or picture files or items in your media gallery. The Droid Bionic allows you to play games, browse the web, and do whatever you want to LOCALLY, showing the exact same thing through HDMI.

Of course the Droid Bionic’s 4G LTE connection on Verizon’s network is one of the main highlights of this phone and it will surely magentize a good share of big red customers. Some of its other key features include an 8MP camera, 1080p HDMI, 720p HD video recording, and a dual core processor each running at 1GHz.

While only the Motorola Atrix was showing off the nifty docking to laptop/desktop screen feature, we’re hopeful Motorola will empower this for all their phones, and really, there is no reason NOT to.
