Verizon Wireless and Motorola today announced that the Droid Bionic Android smartphone — the first from Motorola to support Verizon's Long Term Evolution 4G network — will be available for sale starting Thursday, September 8 for $299.99 with new two-year agreement. The Droid Bionic has been re-realized since its first introduction in January of this year and looks like an enhanced Droid X/X2. According to Verizon, it is the thinnest LTE handset at 11mm, and also has the largest battery at 1735mAh for longer life. It features a 4.3-inch qHD (540 x 960 pixel) display with Gorilla Glass, a dual-core 1GHz processor, and 1GB of RAM to aid performance. It runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and features Motorola's Webtop capability, which allows the Droid Bionic to act as a laptop with a full Firefox browser when attached to the laptop dock (or other Webtop accessories). It also includes the new ZumoCast application, which is used in conjunction with a home PC to provide access to the music, photo, and video files stored on the customer's computer via the network. The Droid Bionic ships with Motoprint for Wi-Fi-based printing; mirror mode with HDMI out; enterprise-grade security; and Citrix GoToMeeting and Citrix Receiver software for business users. Other features include an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and 1080p HD video capture; user-facing camera with Google Talk video chat; 16GB built-in storage and support for microSD cards up to 32GB; and support for Xi-based wireless inductive charging. The Droid Bionic requires a minimum $30 monthly data plan and a minimum $39.99 voice plan. The laptop dock is being sold separately for $299.97, but customers who buy the laptop dock together with the Droid Bionic will receive a $100 mail-in rebate promotion.

Price Point

The only thing Im worried about with this phone at the moment is the price. 299.99 seems a little steep to me but considering how many other Droid devices there are on the market. Especially when the phone feels like a Droid X2 with a few more bells and whistles.

The Zumocast feature does look cool but Im not sure if thats worth an extra 100.00 I wouldnt be supprised if VZW changes the price fairly quick after launch.
