Verizon Wireless has just announced that one of their most powerful smartphones, the Droid Bionic, will be going on sale this Thursday (September 7th) for $299.99.
In case you are unfamiliar with the Droid Bionic, it is the first Verizon phone to run on a dual-core 1GHz processor to run on Verizon’s fast 4G LTE network. And besides selling the phone, Verizon will also be selling accessories for the phone such as an 11.6 inch lapdock for roughly $300.
This lapdock was first brought up at the CES this past January showing the ability of the phone to connect and run the laptop through its powerful processor. This would give users a full keyboard and large screen to do whatever they like such as edit documents, watch movies, or just browse the web on Firefox.
Although the price of the new smartphone may be high, it is in fact the only smartphone on Verizon that runs on the 4G LTE network with a dual core processor. Besides this, the phone is also now the slimmest phone on the Verizon market being only 0.43 inches thick and weighing in at only 5.6 ounces.
The Bionic will run on the latest version of Android (Android 2.3.4), and will support up to 32GB of storage. The phone also has a front and rear facing camera with the rear one being 8 megapixels putting the phone in major competition with newer smartphones.
Although the price is high, it seems the Droid Bionic packs quite the punch and with the external lapdock, it could even be used as a new cheap laptop!
