I think I’ve proved it on a lot of occasions that I’m a Motorola fan boy. I loved the Droid when it first came out (or the Milestone for those who don’t know which one I’m talking about) for its sturdiness, for the great build quality, for the fact that you could easily over clock the processor and hold it at 900Mhz with minimal threat to its safety. I loved the Milestone 2 which took all of those good things about the first one of the series and improved on them. I enjoyed the first few looks at the Motorola tablet running Honeycomb (which I will take a look at in the near future) so I might be a touch biased when taking a look at Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic.
But then again who cares if we are biased when it comes to products we enjoyed in the past and still enjoy, right? Without prolonging this too much let’s get to it. This latest addition to the new upcoming Verizon 4G Android Smartphone line comes with the same 4.3 inch screen as the previously presented smartphones from LG, Samsung and HTC. At the first few looks Motorola seems to have moved away from the almost industrial look of the Milestone to a more sleek design with the Bionic. As such the harder corners and edges have been rounded off to give a more pleasant look to the handset when compared to the Milestone series which almost had a rugged feel about it.
As we look around the device we get to see all the standard ports, mini USB, HDMI port, 3.5 mm audio jack at the top, volume rocker on the side. The overall feel of the phone brings back good memories, as this Motorola smartphone just feels great in the hand. Despite the rounded off edges the phone still has in my eyes a rugged way of introducing itself. Still considering the huge 4.3 inch display it boasts at the front I can safely assume that once it will be launched it will make some waves. This device is however the one which come out most likely the latest of the 4 devices previewed today as launch date is set towards sometime the mid of 2011. It’s also the only one (as far as I know) of the 4 which comes equipped with a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and this shows.
Navigation through the menus is blazing fast and video playback and program loading times are close to zero. The dual-core processor really knows how to flex its muscles as there was no delay what so ever while performing any tasks and to combine this with great speed, just think of a dual-core device with a 4G internet connection. Result? Blazing fast performance. Still I don’t want to swallow my words when this will indeed come out so I’ll stop. All in all the handset promises a whole lot and considering how well Motorola works, I am pretty sure it will deliver as well. Until next time, I’ll be busy playing around with the over clock on the Milestone 2.1
