Motorola's Dual-Core Android Bionic: Worth the Wait?

Motorola's Dual-Core Android Bionic: Worth the Wait?
 
 

I had a chance to play with the Bionic back during CES. It felt great in my hands. Much more solid and substantial than the Atrix. Here's a brief video of my hands-on:

This is the smartphone you should be eying if you liked the cut of the ThunderBolt's jib, but want a dual-core 1 GHz processor on top of all that speed. It has a 4.3" qHD display and an 8 MP rear camera and .3 MP front camera. The only disappointment on this powerhouse smartphone is 512 MB of RAM. But that may change.

Motorola has delayed the Bionic's release in order to make improvements to its hardware and software. The failure of the Atrix has prompted Moto to review their plans here. And we may see a bump in RAM as a result. We're also likely to see the Bionic launch with Android 2.3 instead of 2.2. Other possible changes include the addition of an NFC reader or an improved battery to account for the added strain of LTE.

The Bionic is expected to launch later this Summer. As the first smartphone powerful enough to take advantage of Verizon's LTE network, it's worth keeping an eye on.
