Motorola Launches Its New Droid Smartphones

 

Motorola launched its highly anticipated Verizon 4G Droid Bionic smartphone on Thursday.

The new device costs $299.99 and features 16 gigabytes of internal storage, as well as a 16 gigabyte microSD card.

The smartphone also has an 8-megapixel camera, a 4.3-inch screen and the ability to send 1080p video to a television through HDMI.

Motorola's new smartphone also has a dual core 1GHz TI's OMAP 4 chipset processor.

The Droid's screen is a scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass and has a front-facing camera for video chat.

Early reviews of the device have been positive, including a CNET review which said:  "The Motorola Droid Bionic is everything you want from a high-end smartphone. It's sleek, fast, and powerful, with features that will please both consumers and business users--if you're willing to pay the high price."

The Bionic's browser includes HTML 5 support and comes loaded with Adobe Flash.

The device is now available at Verizon retail outlets and Verizon's website.
