CES 2011: Droid Bionic Hands-On (Video)

Discussed this morning at the Verizon keynote address, we have now been able to go hands on with the new Droid Bionic.  Physically the handset had a good solid feeling to it, and the Android 2.2 installation seemed zippy and responsive thanks to the 1 GHz dual-core processor that can deliver the equivalent of two GHz of processing power.

The phone includes 512 MBs of RAM which should give you more than enough power for the built-in Mobile Flash and the HTML 5 functionality.   You’re also going to need all of that RAM to enjoy the multiplayer gaming capabilities that will be displayed on the Bionic’s 4.3-inch qHD quality screen.

The back of the Bionic sports an 8-megapixel camera while the front has a VGA-quality front facing camera for video conferencing, which has become so standard these days it almost doesn’t seem worth mentioning any more.

With the ability to play HD-quality games and videos it would be nice to see that on your bigger television at home.  Guess it’s a good thing it has an HDMI out slot.

All in all it looks like another solid phone from Motorla coming mid 2011 to the Verizon network.
