When the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G smartphone was released, few smartphone shoppers realized that it offered the same inherent versatility that the Motorola Atrix 4G was designed to offer. If you recall, Motorola designed the Atrix 4G to effectively dock into three separate accessories that extended the functionality from simple mobile handset to in-car hands-free GPS system, entry-level laptop and multimedia station.
The knock against Motorola was not that the devices didn’t offer great options for a handset owner, but that and were too pricey. Since then, Motorola has offered package deals on sites like Amazon, and has dropped the retail price on these three Motorola accessories. Now, with the release of the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G Android smartphone, there are two handsets which can work with these three accessories.
Motorola calls their laptop docking station the Lapdock, and as soon as you snap in the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G handset, you effectively have an 11.6 inch notebook. Motorola has programmed the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G with their WebTop browsing software application that allows full PC quality web browsing through Firefox. The Lapdock weighs about half as much as a comparable notebook or laptop, and adds eight hours of run time to the Motorola Droid Bionic handset.
Motorola also built a multimedia HD Station which contains three USB ports, an HDMI video out port and a 3.5 mm headphone or audio out jack. By hooking to an external handset, keyboard and mouse, you can access the WebTop software and use the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G processor to power a true PC experience.
Vehicle Navigation Dock
Motorola designed their Droid Bionic 4G Vehicle Navigation Dock to provide hands-free voice GPS turn by turn directions, and hands-free Google voice web search. The dock mounts onto your dashboard or windshield, and also acts as a rapid charger for your Motorola Droid Bionic 4G smartphone. Get the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G starting at only $149.
The Motorola Droid Bionic 4G handset is available exclusively on the Verizon 4G LTE mobile broadband network at a retail price of $149 with a two-year activation. It is the first handset to offer dual cores and 1 GB of RAM memory on the 4G LTE platform, and also contains 2 GB of ROM memory and 16 GB of storage space with the ability to extend that up to 32 GB. The Motorola Droid Bionic 4G offers a 4.3 inch display with capacitive touch screen technology and multi-gesture support, and delivers 540 x 960 pixel resolution.
