Motorola's Droid Bionic went on sale on Thursday priced at $299, however, many Web sites are offering the smartphone at discount prices.
Exclusively through the Verizon network, the Droid Bionic is a 4G LTE, dual-chip smartphone with a 4.3-inch HD screen. The Droid Bionic also has two cameras, one front-facing for video chat and 8-megapixel back camera, Adobe Flash preloaded, 32 GB of memory and a slim frame. It has a dual-core 1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM and runs on the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system. Best of all, it has Zumocast, a cloud-friendly app for transferring videos, music, pictures and documents from a computer to the device, pre-installed.
While reviews of the Droid Bionic have been favorable, many critics are saying the price point at $299.99 is too steep. Nicole Lee of CNET 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 high price of the Motorola Droid Bionic through the Verizon network could be why some retailers have chosen to price the Droid Bionic at a much lower price, or offer incentives.
