Following a number of postponements, the Motorola Droid Bionic was finally offered in the market recently. The Motorola (NYSE:MMI) smartphone was also reportedly given some enhancements to meet some of the expectations of users following its introduction early in the year. The Motorola Droid Bionic will likely become the flagship Android device of Verizon (NYSE:VZ) since the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 5 and Samsung (SEO:005930) Galaxy S2 have yet to be offered by the service provider.
Despite the rave reviews that the device received in recent weeks, some observers have indicated that the full potential of the Motorola Droid Bionic may not be attained due to the data caps that Verizon has imposed on its data plans. These data caps have been considered as a major obstacle in the full use of the Motorola Droid Bionic.
Due to the 4G LTE technology that the Motorola Droid Bionic utilizes, users are able to stream audio, access Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and download large files easily. The mobile hotspot support as well as the Webtop capability of the device will also contribute to the using up of much of the data plan of users for the week.
Following the removal of the unlimited data plan by Verizon and being replaced with a tiered data plan, users have been conscious about the data usage of their Motorola Droid Bionic units. Due to this, observers have indicated that users will either minimize their Motorola Droid Bionic usage or they should increase their data plan to the 5GB plan which is at $50 per month.
The Motorola Droid Bionic features a dual-core processor and utilizes the 4G LTE network of Verizon, which is the first such smartphone to do so. The device also features a qHD display screen measuring 4.3 inches, an 8MP camera and the Gingerbread Android OS.
The Motorola Droid Bionic is considered as the answer of Motorola to the popular Galaxy S2 of Samsung, iPhone 5 or Apple and the Vigor or Thunderbolt 2 of HTC (TPE:2498).
