Motorola DROID Bionic Bag of Tips and Tricks Spills Goodies

August 18, 2011

An anonymous tipster was kind enough to leak out a few more juicy details about the long-awaited Motorola DROID Bionic. The folks at TechnoBuffalo yesterday received a bunch of photos showing a bunch of goodies mentioned in a Tips and Tricks manual allegedly for the Motorola DROID Bionic.

Among the earlier rumors that this latest leak confirms (assuming the photos are legit) is the 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen display. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification documents previously revealed the Motorola DROID Bionic to carry a 4.3-inch screen, but skeptics weren’t sure whether the information was up to date. This latest leak will add more credence to the 4.3-inch rumor and will surely make a lot of people happy, since not everyone seems to be delighted by the idea of additional 0.2 inches on a smartphone.

The Motorola DROID Bionic also supports Motorola’s Webtop application, just like the Motorola Atrix 4G did. The application allows the DROID Bionic to work with the Lapdock, whose 11.5-inch screen, built-in keyboard, and trackpad allow for netbook-style usage. The Webtop app also allows the DROID Bionic to hook up to an HD Multimedia Dock, which allows it to power an entertainment center that also allows peripherals such as remote control, external monitor, keyboard, and mouse to be used.

Wireless printing capability is also provided by MOTOPRINT, which allows the DROID Bionic to print directly to Wi-Fi-enabled printers. Up to 8 Wi-Fi-enabled can share the phone’s 4G LTE connection when the DROID Bionic is set to run as a Mobile Hotspot.

A total of 32 GB of storage is packed into the box, courtesy of 16 GB of internal storage and another 16 GB of external microSD storage.

The ZumoCast app is preinstalled into the DROID Bionic. The app allows the device to remotely access files from work or home computers.

The DROID Bionic also provides a shorter way for removing user-installed apps: long-press on the app icon and tapping “Uninstall.”

Three microphones are onboard, which presumably will improve audio capture sensitivity and call quality.

The DROID Bionic’s 8-megapixel camera is capable of 1080p HD-quality video capture, but the default quality is set to 720p HD.

The “Forest” Live Wallpaper not only provides a beautiful background but also shows up-to-date weather info.

Much of the info in these leaked photos also line up with the “official” Motorola DROID Bionic specs that appeared (and immediately disappeared) on the Motorola Developer Network site early this month.

The Motorola DROID Bionic surely has more other goodies in store than these leaked photos care to reveal. With less than a month to go before its rumored September 8 launch date on Verizon, these new juicy details just might give the needed push for those who are still sitting on the fence.

What do you think? Are you still undecided on the Motorola DROID Bionic? Do these new details make you want to get one?

    to little to late imo. dual core 1ghz cpu just doesnt have the shine it once had in the see of 1.2 and 1.5 ghz cpus rumored in other phone just around the corner (vigor, galaxy s2, etc.)

    Completely agree with RAWR. too late with merely a 1ghz dual core. the droid 3 had that for a while now.

    Tegra 2’s and Snapdragons are relatively poor performers compared to OMAP, so be careful about falling for the hype. The standard to beat today is the already-released version of the SGSII and we’ll see how Bionic stands up to that when it releases. Numbers mean nothing without performance to back them up. Something else to consider is that Bionic has been rumor for 7 or 8 months now. Vigor and all the others may have months before they are real as well. Chasing unicorns can be frustrating. Hopefully we’ll get some solid info from HTC and Samsung before the Bionic releases that will at least allow folks to make intelligent buying decisions.

      ya your right, i think most of the reason i lost my interest in this phone is because of all the lack of info on it for so long. They kept on dangling the phone in front of us while they kept on pushing the release date back, basically like wat samsung is doing with the s2 on the US release. Even now with the release of the phone so close there is still some “rumors” over the bionic…its annoying now

        More like maddening.
