The Motorola Droid Bionic is rolling out on Thursday as an iPhone killer, and the new Android beast is available at Verizon with the price tag of $299.99.
Costco, however, is said to offer the Droid Bionic starting Sept. 13, for a discounted price of $279.99 with a free accessories bonus pack, according to a report by PC Magazine. A Phone Arena source suggests that the bonus pack will include a standard dock, vehicle car mount with rapid car charger, extra battery, and a battery charger, giving it $158 value.
Motorola Droid Bionic is the first Verizon Wireless smartphone to combine 4G LTE with the power of dual-core 1 GHz processors, 1 GB of RAM and a stunning 4.3-inch qHD display – all in a sleek form factor that makes it the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone from Verizon Wireless.
Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, the smartphone sports an 8-megapixel camera, and captures 1080p high-definition video.
The Motorola's smartphone introduces ZumoCast, an application that lets customers bring their digital world of videos, music, pictures and documents, normally stored on their computers, to their handset via remote access.
With its revolutionary Webtop application, the phone can beam a full-featured Firefox Web browser 4.0, email or documents to a TV or monitor, like the separately purchased Lapdock with a 11.6-inch screen, keyboard and integrated trackpad.
Droid Bionic also comes with additional accessories such as the HD Station, which let users turn the phone into an entertainment center or home office, HDMI cable for viewing pictures, video, and content on any HDTV or monitor, and it lets users share 4G LTE signal with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices when they activate the Verizon Wireless Mobile Hotspot.
